Orange County, California - Unfamiliar with the let down that being treated just like everybody else is not all that it is cracked up to be, 19-year-old, Charlene Nguon, vowed to file an appeal overturning the results of today's judicial ruling that she was not singled out for being a lesbian who made out with her girlfriend, while heterosexual couples made out with impunity as she alleged.
Rather, the court's finding was that she was caught violating the school rule against inappropriate touching and behavior that applies to everyone while on school grounds. Further school officials did not discriminate against her by disclosing the nature of the school rule violation to her parents that did not know she was a lesbian.
"We are outraged that judge ruled against our client," said a spokesman for the ACLU. "Can't he see she is a lesbian."
"Being gay or lesbian does not afford you rights not afforded heterosexuals," said a spokesman for school officials. "Nguon sealed her fate by making out on school grounds, a violation of school policy against inappropriate touching that applies to everyone."
"It is unreasonable for our lesbian client not to flaunt her sexual orientation and expect school officials not to treat her equally by turning a blind eye to her kissing her girlfriend and then conspiring with her in a cover-up to keep her lesbianism a secret from her family," continued the spokesperson for the ACLU.
Despite Nguon personal loss in losing the lawsuit, ironically, the court's decision is an affirmation that society is treating gay and lesbians equally under the law by expecting them to adhere to the same rules as everybody else. Sadly, Nguon is nonetheless appealing the decision.
"It is our hope that the Court of Appeals will choose to politicize this case, milking it for all the liberal votes we can get just in time for the 2008 Presidential election and justify our billing hours, not to mention the costs this merit less case has had to our already shaky reputation," said a spokesperson for the ACLU.
"After all, we are not just suing for all homosexuals to be able to make out, while heterosexuals can only watch, but for every homosexual who has ever had to watch heterosexuals make out, while they just watched. It's pay back time, baby!" continued the ACLU.
