    Sigh. When are we going to leave the 20th century and stop blaming women when the issue is teaching our sons properly?

    I read her rant, she makes some good points while also coming across like a whiny brat.

    The school officials erred when they decided to define the dress code so rigidly. In the end, they felt like her dress was inappropriate, and that should have been the end of it; instead, they decided they needed to write down a hard and fast rule that she could hurl back in their faces.

    Now she gets an attorney and the school district folds faster than a cheap tent in a hurricane. She'll get a check and an apology.

    She's homeschooled, and this was prom for Richmond homeschoolers, so I'm not sure if it's a part of an actual district.

    I'll bet they thought they recognized her from the porn sites they frequent.

    like any sort of dress would have made any sort of difference for the “impure thoughts” among the boys in attendance...

    I suspect it is literally impossible to keep adolescent boys from having impure thoughts.

    Girl has a lofty opinion of herself and she absolutely knew what she was doing when working the guidelines.

    My wife is slender and 5'9 and she has to give some thought on where she shops and how things fit. A business appropriate skirt for someone that is 5'2", is street walker whore length and inappropriate for work on my wife.

    My wife is aware of this, and has been since she was in her teens. No doubt at all that "Clare" is also aware of this issue for tallish women.

    Furthermore, I have 3 boys and one daughter, and if one of my sons brings home a date and she is dressed on the skimpy side, and I discourage her from doing so, that doesn't mean I have a boner and want dive into some jailbait. It means as an adult and a parent, you will try and give guidance to a teen/child making iffy decisions.

    Yes, dressing like a street walker tends to lead to bad things. I would discourage it for my own daughter, and her friends. Has no ties to my own libido or what appeals to me visually.

    Wow. Really? Way to be judgmental.

    They themselves said it was giving the husbands impure thoughts. No one put those words into their mouths.

    Have you ever lectured your daughter's (presumably) male date about the way he was dressed?

    Not of dating age. Would I? Absolutely. Titillation is no prerequisite either.

    Or could it be cause her prom date was black? Cause I can't fathom to think every other girl at the prom was stick figures with skirts down to their ankles.

    Is that really a suitable reason to eject her from the event? Admittedly some of the attached links attempt to make silly points, as they ignore the act that dress code standards are applied to both sexes in many situations.

    Sounds to me like an old lady caught her husband sneaking a peek and decided to take matters into her own hands. I think it's just one person that didn't like it, one person acting alone.

    Of course she could have just said that the dress was inappropriate, please leave, and it wouldn't have been an issue.


    Where in the **** is religion mentioned ? Not all home schoolers are religious people, some just don't like the screwed up government training centers.

    Isn't the whole idea of prom to have impure thoughts about after the prom.
