Before Constance McMillen there was Juin Baize

In keeping with Mississippi's long history of hate crimes, bigotry, segregation, asshattery, and general backwardness, the students at Itawamba Agricultural High School have created a Facebook fan page called "Constance Quit Yer Cryin". The page, created by the same ugly children that tricked McMillen into going to a fake prom, had about 500 toothless, illiterate fans at the time of this post.
Oh but there's more. According to an article in The Stranger, a 16-year-old transgirl named Juin Baize enrolled at Itawamba Agricultural in Fulton, Mississippi back in January. According to the ACLU, After four hours she was suspended and forbidden to return to school.
Kristy Bennett, legal director of the ACLU, said, “Juin’s case was a situation where a transgender student wanted to attend school dressed in feminine clothing and the school district would not even let him attend school."
Why do the administrators at this school still have jobs? Please 'splain.
Oh and, 45 years ago, in Alabama, the same type of bigoted prom stunt was pulled on Carolyn King.
