Memorial High School in Port Arthur, TX, is discriminating students based on sexual orientation. They have forbidden same-sex couples to attend their high school prom. This is incredulous!
They said that during the school announcements and they clearly stated that "[they] will not discuss these rules any further". The school officials, who are supposed to take care of the student population and help end discrimination, are the ones who are hurting them even more. Please help us so we can help fight discrimination!

      Everyone has the right to love and be with whoever they wanna be, whether it's a man or a woman. Let the gays and lesbians bring a same sex person to their prom, they have the RIGHT to!

      My high school did not allow LGBT couples to attend school dance functions together, and I was always upset by this. This needs to change!

      Because kids should be allowed to take whoever they want to prom. Why not? It's not going to change anything. Everyone will still have a great time.

      Because this kind of thing is ridiculously outdated.

      Children are still young. If they fall in love with a certain someone, then let it be. I thought this was a free country, not a land of imprisonment. Let the children have that special dance with the one they love. Let them have the time of their life while they're still young. You only have prom once and this is the one time to have it your way. Let's go kids! I'm with you!
