Bishop McDevitt High School Discriminates Against LGBT

See if you can find the hidden bullshit in the block quote below...
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania high school student said she was barred from attending her prom because she wore a suit rather than a dress. Aniya Wolf said she's a lesbian who has worn a shirt and pants for all three years she has attended Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, according to WHTM-TV (http://bit.ly/1T5K6lV ). She and her mother, Carolyn Wolf, said the family got a last-minute email saying girls had to wear dresses to attend Friday's prom.[..] The school released a statement Saturday saying the dress code was sent to parents three months ago specifying girls must wear formal dresses, and those who didn't follow it would not be admitted. A reminder was sent to all students on March 6, the school said. "Bishop McDevitt will continue to practice acceptance and love for all of our students. They are tremendous young men and women," the school said. "We simply ask that they follow the rules that we have put into place."
Did you miss it? I didn't. See the part about "acceptance and love" means that students are the ones accepting the rules handed down, legal or not. And as for love, what they really mean is that they would LOVE anyone who doesn't accept and abide by their rules to go the fuck away. Bishop McDevitt is an embarrassment in 2016. Mandating that females must wear gowns and males must wear pants isn't just fucking rude, it's wrong. Their statement about love and acceptance is a lie. And not even a good one.
