School Forbids Cross Dressing at Prom, Media Fume

Principal Patrick Taylor at Carroll High School in Monroe, Louisiana told Claudetteia Love that she would not be permitted to wear a tuxedo to the prom because of the dress code.  After Love announced a prom boycott to local media, the national homosexual media chimed in, and now the school board appears ready to appease critics and allow Love to celebrate her "sexual orientation" as a role model for younger soon-to-be-lesbian girls.
“As school board president, I don’t agree with Carroll banning her from her prom just because of what she wants to wear — that’s discrimination.”
-- Rodney McFarland, Monroe City School Board

-- From "Gay Student to Miss Prom After Louisiana School Says No Tux" by Justin Worland, Time Magazine 4/5/15

“I told my mom, ‘They’re using me,'” [Claudetteia Love] said. “They put me in all these honors and advanced placement classes so I can take all of these tests and get good grades and better the school, but when it’s time for me to celebrate the fact that I’ve accomplished what I need to accomplish and I’m about to graduate, they don’t want to let me do it, the way I want to.”

The school’s principal, Patrick Taylor, insisted to the newspaper that the tuxedo rule isn’t about sexual orientation, rather just an issue of dress code. Geraldine Jackson, the girl’s mother, said the principal told her that teachers said they would refuse to chaperone the event if the dress code wasn’t enforced. Jackson said he told her that “girls wear dresses and boys wear tuxes, and that’s the way it is.”

From "Gay student to miss prom over no-tux rule" by Barbara Leader, Monroe (Louisiana) News Star 4/3/15

Last year, Love was one of a group of students presented in a Monroe City School Board meeting as part of the school's high achieving medical magnet program. In a school that has a failing school performance score, Love is one of the academic superstars. She will represent the school at the annual Scholars' Banquet, an event for the top students in Ouachita Parish.

Love hadn't intended to take a date to the prom but wanted to attend with a group of friends who have also now chosen not to attend because of the no-tux rule. She says a petition by members of the senior class to change the rule wasn't acted on by faculty.

"There are other girls in lower grades than me, and I want for them when they come up to not to have to feel like they aren't accepted," Love said. "I don't want them to feel like they are less of a person because people don't accept them. There are people in the world that won't accept you but they don't have to be so judgmental and make you feel like you're less of a person and that you shouldn't express yourself."
