Who’s the child here again?

Seems a young
woman in a tuxedo, arm in arm with her girlfriend at a prom, was too much of a vision
of the 2012 kind for some truly
inspired Mississippi parents.

Inspired, because
they actually dreamed up a particularly vicious plan to derail lesbian student Constance
McMillen’s wish to celebrate her graduation with her date and the rest of her
cohort.

Wrap this around
your conspiracy-theory grey matter, people: they sent her a fake invitation to a fake prom, while staging an actual prom at
a “secret location” for Constance’s graduating class — without her.

Constance (pictured below with her dad) and
her date ended up with five other students — two with learning difficulties —
at the “fake” country club event, McMillen told The Advocate

Constance’s reaction?

“They had the
time of their lives. That’s the one good thing that’s come out of this, [these
kids] didn’t have to worry about people making fun of them [at their prom].”

“The Child is
father of the man…” William Wordsworth wrote in "The Rainbow."

And in her
approach to what has degenerated into nothing less than a psychological hazing
worthy of drunken frat boys, Constance has proven to be worthy of the title,
adult.
