Constance the Prom Lesbian Is Making Big Waves! What Next?
When that Mississippi prom was canceled just so 18-year-old Constance McMillen and her girlfriend wouldn't come, Constance became a huge media star in the wake of the hideous bigotry.
And in the process, I started wondering "What next?"
What else would hatemongers cancel just to avoid admitting people they don't approve of?
How about closing all restaurants for fear a vegan might walk in?
Banning all bars and nightclubs so a single mother can't show up?
Canceling all concerts just in case black people want to either entertain or watch?
And no more laundromats because some people might walk in with sexual aftermath on their clothes!
Or how about just fucking themselves?
