    Nah, just sleep deprived and prone to skim.

    That certainly does add an interesting element to the story, however. How out of hand can a person possibly get at a Homeschool prom?

    Mine was rather tame, all things considered.

    I don't think that necessarily means that the school had nothing to do with organizing the event. Home-schoolers often are involved in many activities at their local public school. I don't know who organized this prom, but it is possible that it was the school.

    I found this quote from the girl, which makes it sound like the dress was still an issue even after she had shown the chaperone that it was in line with the rules. She also says that she wasn't dancing.

    Homeschooled Girl Kicked Out of Prom Because of Leering Dads
    She took me into a corner in the hall way, with another woman, (who I'm assuming was a parent/chaperone) and told me that some of the dads who were chaperoning had complained that my dancing was too provocative, and that I was going to cause the young men at the prom to think impure thoughts. At this point I said to her that I hadn't been dancing at all! Much less seductively... Then she proceeded to reiterate that my dress was too short and I that I was going to have to leave. I again showed her and the lady with her that the dress met dress code standards, the only thing the dress code said was it had to be fingertip length, and they never had us sign any sort of agreement to abide by that rule in the first place, and second of all my dress was in compliance with the one rule.

    Re: Teen ejected from prom after dads experience ‘impure thoughts’

    Now the NBC article makes no mention of fathers supposedly leering at her.

    Virginia Teen Says Dress Got Her Kicked Out of Prom

    A 17-year-old girl said she was kicked out of her prom because some of the dads chaperoning the event for home-schooled teens thought her dancing would give the boys "impure thoughts."

    Claire Ettinger of Richmond, Virginia, described the ordeal in a post that was published on her sister's blog on Monday.

    "The whole situation made me feel violated, walked over and ostracized," Ettinger said in the post.

    The night was off to a rough start on Sunday when a prom organizer purportedly criticized her for showing up in a dress that she argued was too short for the prom. Ettinger said in the blog post that her fitted, sparkly dress met her school's "fingertip length" dress code requirement. Still, the event organizer, described as Mrs. D, warned her to "make sure it stays pulled down."

    Ettinger said she was amused to find that girls in the ballroom wore dresses much shorter than hers, but because they were shorter than her, their dresses weren't as controversial.

    "I have long legs, everything looks short on me," she said she told the organizer.

    Mrs. D later plucked Ettinger from the dance floor because "some of the dads who were chaperoning had complained that my dancing was too provocative," she said.




    There's more at the link, but no mention of the fathers supposedly being perverts. Now it's the opposite - the fathers were not excited by her dancing, and instead were offended by it.

    But of course that didn't stop the nutjobs on here from assuming that a bunch of fathers chaperoning a dance that their own children were attending were ogling at and leering at some little teenager.

    Are women responsible for men's thoughts? That's a lot of control, if it is.

    Perhaps the dads need to get some professional help to overcome their impure thoughts before they act on them with their own daughters. They're the ones that should have been 'ejected' for not controlling their own behavior.
    WTF kind of a sick comment is that?

    Yup, and the idiotic media making the story about a bunch of dirty old men, which now we're finding out wasn't even the truth, but apparently appeals to people who assume that men are so sick that they want to have sex with some teenager or molest their own daughters.

    I think the only truth to the story is that she was ejected from the prom.

    I'm sure the fathers thought that the girl would cause the boys to have impure thoughts because they saw nothing sexually appealing about her.

    That is JUST AS BAD. It's not her responsibility to not dance the way she wants to because other people may not be able to control themselves.

    LOL, I almost read no further when I saw the term 'homeschool', but I entirely agree with that point of view. One of the most hilarious aspects of the allegations against her was that her behaviour might give 17 year old boys 'impure thoughts'. The poster who alluded to 'the American Taliban' was spot on.

    17 year old males, and indeed even 19 year old males (such as myself) have few thoughts which are not 'impure' - that is what nature intended, else the ancestors of the human race would have died out a few million years ago.

    And do the people who objected to her form of dancing know that the word 'prom' is a shortened version of promenade - a reference to formal dances in which participants display their dress and dancing styles?

    Stupid reason for making a girl leave her own prom. That is supposed to be a memory for HER, not the parents and chaperones.
