    So a bunch of perverted middle-aged men ogle a minor and the school punishes the girl for adhering to the school dress code? What is the logic of the school? Side with the girl who has done nothing wrong, or the group of old guys in a corner concealing erections. Ridiculous.

    Yes, this is nuts, a bunch of perverts influenced school authorities to go stupid and lose all rationality, sad day for my state, embarrassing for sure :(

    @Hillofbeans well, none of those places should exist because, "That attitude teaches girls that it's their responsibility to prevent themselves from being ogled, rather than teaching boys to have the self-control to refrain from objectifying their classmates."

    No objectifying! Just one more reason I can't wait to we evolve so that humans are hatched out of eggs... And then sex will finally be outlawed, too hopefully, like I, Robot.

    I really wonder if it was the Daddies complaining? Sounds more like a bunch of jealous, middle aged wives regressing back to their competitive high school days. Only this time they actually had some weight to throw around.

    There is not not one thing wrong with that dress. The length was more than appropriate. I don't know what kind of school this was.

    I think those dads must have missed out on their own prom night.
    Most girls could have worn a potato or coffee sack for a dress in my day and we'd still have impure thoughts.

    Exactly, a young girl doesn't have to do anything to make young boys have impure thoughts. Those thoughts have been in our DNA since were were cave men.

    NewsAlert: Even men approaching their golden years..........can see a women in a potato or coffe sack, and it STILL causes impure thoughts. Every 8 seconds, according to the latest science.........There is no "new school" any different than "old school" when it comes to sexual thought.

    well, 50s retro is sort of messed up. all i can say is that it's a good thing that it wasn't a late 60s early 70s micro-mini skirt. they didn't wear any nickers with those, you know... and nobody's dad complained about it.

    @sevenSecrets i'll guarantee that the men didn't say a word... especially to the women. it's just that the women saw them staring at all the pretty girls and had to put a stop to that sort of thing. shoot, when we go to the beach my wife sits pointing them out to me so that i won't miss anything. if they're really nice to look at she even takes fotos of them... and i'm guilty of pointing out the good looking guys to her, too.

    @dances-weebles ....most men aren't as secure as you, myself and a minority of men. I read somewhere of a study that said Republican men are the most sexually insecure. I guess that explains why they want so much control over their women.

    As a Virginian, I am ashamed, this is ridiculous, the school and especially the "dad's" should get passed their bias' and sexist thoughts. She was within code, wth?!

    Not a public or private school prom

    HOME SCHOOLER PROM.

    that's ALL that needs to be said to explain it.

    Lmao!!!
    42 years difference in a prom!
    At 17teen that's almost three lifetimes.
    I hope these future geniuses live as long as some us in today's world.

    @HawkTheSlayer the difference a few short years makes is that in '65 all the girls wore forman gowns to the prom... and they looked every bit as sexy. i suppose, however, that it's a matter of class. we had more of it.

    Hmm...I wonder why this article didn't quote any of the men who were supposedly distracted by this girl? Maybe Mrs. D had a problem with the girl's dancing and made the whole thing up about the male chaperones complaining, but of course that question isn't even brought up because that would prevent the left from promoting their manufactured rage. I mean think about it for a sec...What sounds more likely: that a bunch of middle aged men were whining about a young attractive girl that was dressed to kill and was dancing a little too provocatively, or that Mrs. D, who's husband doesn't pay her any attention because she's gained 100 pounds over the last ten years, is a little jealous?

    I think you assertion is spot on.....however.....had I a daughter.....I'd want a more conservative dress.....for her.....this society has oversexualized teens far too long.....

    "I wonder why this article didn't quote any of the men who were supposedly distracted by this girl?"

    Too much drooling to talk.

    And the men weren't complaining, the wives were complaining about their husbands.
    But they have to go home with their husbands, so they went after her.

    On the other hand, I'll bet there were a few heated conversations on the way home that night.

    @neckbone--not so fast. It wouldn't be the first time females were punished, or controlled, because men are ashamed of their own thoughts.

    @o_g_neckbone And it wouldn't be the first time women felt obliged to protect men from themselves. Wotta mess!

    To me, this story is deceptive. You quoted her saying that the reason she got kicked out was her provocative dancing, not the dress. Yet the dress is promoted as the main reason. I have no idea what was going on at the prom, since it's not stated. Was she bending down too much with that short dress or something? I don't know. So, it's unclear. That the reason stated included adult men having impure thoughts, was kind-of dumb, I think, unless it's taken out of context, like they meant that if the men know that they are disturbed by it, then the other young men (students) will be too. If the school's intention is to try to teach teens certain behavior, as minors, then it is up to the school, isn't it? Should they just let it go, at a public school event, the enticing of teen boys to orgy? Just asking. From the article, there is nothing clear about the dancing or the school's policy, etc. Just an article to get views here, though, like so many other media outlets.

    The title of the politic article sums it up: she was asked to leave because the way she was dancing and it would cause the males in the room to think bad thoughts. But reading the think progress article, it sounds like the women who were chaperoning were getting jealous or angry that she was getting looks. They wouldn't even let her speak to the woman running the prom itself. Either way, its mysoginistic.

    Perhaps they should have asked any pants tented fathers to leave since it seems they and the the closeted lesbo that originally accosted her are the ones with the problem.......

    She truly is a beautiful little beast. I'd suggest she go to a flesh-colored or pink lipstick to make her face more angelic and less...........er, you know impure. We have a local young innocent temptress here in Albuquerque as the channel 19 and 50 spokesperson/star. She is one of the sweetest looking women I've ever seen. Naturally red hair, blue eyes, beautiful creamy complexion...........gotta go, lol.

    There was nothing wrong with the dress and as far as the dancing, prom is supposed to be a night to let loose. When I was in high school in the 80's people were dirty dancing and noone cared because it was a popular style of dance at the time. The boys just need to learn to control themselves at least at the dance, the other stuff happened after the dance and I don't think we are going to stop that. The dads that complained were creepy and probably shouldn't be chaperoning a dance if watching teenage girls dancing gives them an instant boner.

    Yeah, it sounds like these middle age men and women ...should be doing it more...so the site of a teenage girl doesn't arouse the men or infuriate the women so much

    The way a woman (or girl) is dressed cannot be an excuse for lewd and lascivious behavior by males; fashion can be a thoughtless master. On the other hand, I taught my girls that they should dress appropriate to the event and should not dress to be deliberately provocative for a trip shopping, for example. That makes men uncomfortable and is simply cruel and disrespectful.

    Having said all that, the dress in question here does not appear to be inappropriate. The "fingertip" length replaced the "so many inches above the knee" approach because girls are different heights. In my day, the rule was no more than 4 inches above the knee. But we had a very short girl in our class for whom 4 inches above the knee was 1/2' below her crotch. They changed to fingertip length that year.

    Again only a very small part of the story here. What was she doing on the dance floor? Note that she was not ejected when the woman talked to her first about the length of the dress. It was after that she was told to go because of, " she...told me that some of the dads who were chaperoning had complained that my dancing was too provocative." So we have no way of knowing what she was doing on the dance floor to get this kind of response.
    I am sure that there are more rules as to behavior than just this dress. We have no way of knowing the entire story here and the language she used in her blog post doesn't sound like what you would like to hear from a kid her age.
    So all I am saying is until we know all the story we should be careful about all this righteous indignation here and condemnation of people we know nothing about.

    Yep.
    Dance video would mucho appreciato.
    Then we could really see if young boys minds gravitated towards the anti-gravity associated with dancing.

    oh yeah... she mentioned the fact that she has been 'slutshamed' and said,'goddamn'. slut shaming is a common media term, and she said nothing else that a 17 year old shouldn't have said.

    i agree that we're not receiving the whole story, but a heavily edited one.

    Clare, a senior in Chesterville who was only identified by her last name, was asked to leave a prom organized in Mechanicsville for homeschooled students after some adult chaperones took notice of the 5-foot-9 17-year-old
    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/va-t...

    Clare said she was in a group of friends, swaying to the music, when she noticed something creepy.
    "We were also a little grossed out by all the dads on the balcony above the dance floor, ogling and talking amongst themselves," she wrote.
    That's when the same prom organizer who let Clare in the door came back to tell her she was no longer welcome at the dance.

    And OMG!! Her date was a black guy...

    Did you notice the tittle of the blog she posted on?
    "F*** the Patriarchy":
    So just a bit more severe than goddamn or slutshamed.
    just saying we still do not have the whole story. We are getting her side and every effort of the reports to depict here as a victim.

    I wouldn't have allowed my 17 year old daughter out of the house clad to only to her finger tips with her ass cheeks barely covered.

    If my 18 year old daughter wants to dress that way that's on her cause she'll be living on her own out of my house.

    From the angle presented the dress looks fine. As for dancing "too provocative" that has little to do with the dress. There is a certain amount of decency one can expect at a dance for minors and if she was violating that then it is hardly slut shaming to call her out on it. Without seeing how she was dancing I can't say one way or the other whether it was appropriate. As for get leered at by other people, it is your choice to dress as you do. Yes the dads dont need to leer, but dont be upset if your dressing for attention gets you just that.

    I agree. If it was because of the provocative dancing, she deserved to be called on it. She is still a child and it was Prom. You can't go to Prom and dance like you are being paid. Try the teen club.

    @TigerLandSC you are such a Puritan....weren't there any good dancers at your prom that danced provocatively?......My Prom was a long time ago but in my recollection half the girls in the place danced provocatively.....isn't provocation in the eye of the beholder and isn't that what dancing is all about?

    Imagine how boring High School dances would have been if the girls didn't dance provocatively. The boys wouldn't bother going if it weren't for that.

    "Imagine how boring High School dances would have been if the girls didn't dance provocatively."

    This was supposed to be that boring, it was the prom for home-schooled kids.
    You know, good Christians, moral high ground, and all that...

    @Cincinnatus Teenagers are teenagers, and even Amish teenagers find the opposite sex provocative.

    The home school nuts could have solved the problem the way the Muslims do though, just make all the girls wear Burkas.

    You know what though. Even teenage muslim girls in Burkas find ways to be "provocative" to the boys they know. It is human nature and completely in the eye of the beholder.
