furthermore, as if it wasn't obvious enough how ridiculous this is, here is the Itawamba AHS Mission Statement, located front and center on their webpage (with authentic html text scrolling, circa 1994):

"The mission of IAHS is to involve school, families, and community in enabling students to be responsible and productive citizens of an ever changing world by providing academic and technological programs in a learning environment that is safe, orderly, empowering, and challenging."

The community leadership where she lives must be total assholes for this to happen. Hopefully she'll get out of that town and at least retain a civil rights war story to tell of. What a display of organized ignorance.

Sagemind says...

In my life, I have judged and been judged, and I have left judgment behind because knowing that judgment has never swayed me, I have also learned that no one should have to sway due to my judgment.


Edit: I feel as horrible for them as if it had happened to myself... absolutely terrible!

DICK MOVE!

How in the world did they keep this from them and yet all the other kids knew about it?

I remember an episode of House where House says about Cameron that she is a Circle Queen and she draws a circle and everyone pretty and sweet gets to be inside it and everyone outside it needs to be broken and reset so they can come into the circle. This is like a Circle Queen in High Schools biggest victory EVER! Just place all the "Undesirables" in a little play area...lets call it a camp of some sort. Everyone inside the circle that's not an "Undesirable" gets to be at this other better camp. What they had a mirror ball and punch and some crappy music? Separate but Equal Right? Right?!!?

Question...Where are the so called "Good" Hackers I always hear about? Yeah know those news stories that come out saying hacker did bad things this and that there's always an editorial elsewhere about the Good Hackers or not all Hackers are baddies...Well where the FUCK are you guys. Fuck with this School! GO FORTH AND DESTROY PERMANENT RECORDS!!!

Xax says...

What a shameful, sad bunch of dirtbags. I just don't know what to say. This makes me so angry.

The woman in the video asks, "But what are you gonna do?" That's a good question. I'm all set to go vigilante, but it doesn't sound like there are enough people in that area to give a shit. But the whole "the best revenge is to live a happy life" thing doesn't quite do it for me.

It was probably fairly easy to keep quiet. The rest of the grad class is related to each other.


Exactly. The best thing this poor girl can possibly do is FUCKING LEAVE MISSISSIPPI. Find a nice urban center and blend.

NinjaInHeat says...

I love his speech at the end. If she's a gay 17 year old I can only hope she's learned by now that the majority of mankind are ass holes and that's not likely to change in her life time. Them being sad has nothing to do with them being uneducated bigots, and at her 10 year highschool reunion the worst of them are just as likely to turn out leading a happy fulfilling life as she is, if not more so, life sucks.

To: Itawamba Agricultural High School administrators and School Board members,

I just wanted to congratulate you on your response to Constance McMillen's request to attend her school prom. By holding a prom for the majority of the school class and a second separate but equal event for the members of the class with deformities (learning-based and sexuality-based) you undertake the noble goal of reviving the proud tradition of separate but equal applications to education in Mississippi. Clearly you would not allow Judge Glen Davidson's misinformed views of the law stop you from doing what you knew to be right. After all, the law is on your side, is it not? See Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 (1896). Ultimately the community-wide coordination required to organize two events and keep the primary event secret from a select few is impressive is a strong testament to the character of Itawamba as a whole.

I imagine you shouting this while throwing a Pokeball. I choose you, HACKERCHU!!!

I would just like to say I have renewed faith in the average Sifter's intelligence that you guys caught the inbreeding reference and didn't take my comment literally. I can only imagine the kids at that school and their parents replying "But, we're not related!".


imstellar28 says...

whats hard to believe is this girl doesn't seem to have even a single friend - or even a single person who would feel guilty enough to let her in on the secret - even anonymously, at the entire school (unless the school is really small or something).

jcf79 says...

As someone who went to a small school I can fully believe that no one told her. I was a lone punk kid in a school that had a greyhound superimposed over a rebel flag for it's school symbol, and this was in Ohio, and I had never gotten so much shit as my two horrible years there. And yes, the best revenge is living a good life, that and moving away...

Stormsinger says...

I quite like it. But I'll bet you dollars to donuts that it goes right over their heads. They are going to think you're really on their side.
