The same school that won’t let Constance McMillen attend prom also suspended a trans student.

    Re: trans student suspended — That is disgusting. What an unsafe, shitty town for like, ANYONE. It looks like they’re collecting donations for him (he uses male pronouns) to relocate to a town in Florida that is safer and more accepting. If I could afford it, I would totally donate. Anyone who can, should. This is the kind of shit that makes it so hard to be LGBTQI and out.

    That school is absolutely infuriating. I remember reading another article about Constance McMillen, and the principle tried to claim he “wasn’t prejudiced” or something along those lines. Clearly, that was total bullshit.

    With all the news about crap-ass high schools, I figured we all need to listen to this to pump us up.

    LIRR (on Long Island) also has similar crap with gender markers on their monthly passes. The first time you use it, the conductor punches either M or F, depending on which gender they think you are.
