It's prom season, bringing with it excited teens, fancy dresses, and the inevitable instances of discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community. On Wednesday, high school junior Paula Goodgame tweeted a screenshot of a message she got from her guidance counselor just a week before prom, letting her know that she wouldn't be allowed to bring her girlfriend Anjali Persad as her date. The message, which for some reason included a smiley face (?), suggested that she try to get a male friend to invite her girlfriend instead. What the?

Goodgame's tweet has since gone viral, with people on Twitter sharing their outrage at the situation.
