Boner Candidate #1: HIGH SCHOOL LESBIANS SHOULD KEEP QUIET

Two female students in Alabama were reportedly suspended from their high school after one asked her girlfriend to the prom. The Alexandria High School student staged the promposal Tuesday at a talent show during school hours with help from another female classmate, according to AL.com. Her girlfriend, who performed in the show, was not disciplined. The two students who planned the promposal, meanwhile, received in-school suspensions Wednesday after the incident, the site reported. School officials reportedly called the talent show promposal a “disruption,” but students in attendance disagreed with the characterization. “I was there when it happened,” senior Ashley Fadely told AL.com. “It was right after her performance.

I had letters of hate written to me at work.” Speaking at a event entitled “Gender Equality: will it take another 100 years” organised by the Young Women’s Trust, Cotton revealed the sexism she has faced throughout her 30-year career at the LFB.
