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

    `
    What I have found here, in the comments, was how quickly and erroneously, the conservative right went on the attack, going as far to deny the incident even took place, calling it a lie. Those people you can cross off any list of being sagaciousness enough to even comment on it.

    The incident did take place. Her name is Claire Ettinger. That is undisputed. What is at the point of contention is the facts surrounding it, specifically was it; a) the dress length, b) the fathers leering looks or impure thoughts, c) the boys “impure thoughts” due to dress length, d) her “provocative dance” as reported by the fathers. It could be any or all of the above. It could even be that Claire’s escort to that prom was black, as one astute commenter here stated. Unfortunately there has been no comment from the organizers of the prom.

    After reading through about ten different sources reporting the same incident, I honestly have to conclude that while the left-leaning news sites are having a field day with this (and yes they are biased), however the right-leaning news sites are not even reporting this. That in itself is telling.

    Another small but noteworthy tidbit: home schooling. Just as the right has their code words to disguise their racism, the left uses the term “home schooling” often to indicate the religious right, whom are at the forefront of the home schooling initiate. This ties in to the “impure thoughts”.

    Another thing to note, which was overlooked, the motivating factor was the fact that she blogged this because her friends, who were also ejected, did not get their $25 refunded

    While I am inclined to believe Claire’s story and am sympathetic to her situation, until we hear from the organizers and adults who attended, we are getting only one side of the story.

    No idea whether this story is true or not, but the OP only lists one source...the 17 year old.

    I would like to hear other side of the story before I pass judgement.

    The woman who asked her to leave should be ashamed of herself.



    Nothing worse than a jealous older woman, whose husband was probably oggling from the balcony....

    Second, your Progressive Secular Humanist bit doesn't get the story right. The chaperoning dads, according to the one woman who had a problem with her and wouldn't let it go, had complained that her dancing was too provocative and might cause impure thoughts in the boys.

    Here's the link to the girl's sister's blog, and this turgid tale makes for very boring reading, BTW, except for the title, which is "F-Bomb the Patriarchy" () : http://www.hannahettinger.com/****-t...post-by-clare/



    Wrong.

    If you go to the link there are 2 pictures of the sweet young girl that this story is about.

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

    Came across a local news story about it, which had a comment from someone who did set-up for the prom. They had a link to a blog by someone who was at the prom who has a different story (man that is a mouthful):
    Dads Are Not The Problem | the road less traveled
    Clare talks about how she isn’t responsible for other people’s thought or drives, but she admits in her blog post that she looked hot and would turn heads when walking through a door. Emily Collins, a lady chaperoning, states that Clare’s dress only met dress code when it was pulled down, but as she walked, the dress rose. Clare was seen by multiple sources (students) to be dancing provacatively and as she moved her dress rose. When she was approached and asked to pull it down by female chaperones, Clare responded with extreme disrespect towards the authorities, at which point she was asked to leave.
    Chesterfield homeschooler kicked out of prom over
    That is the first comment I mentioned.

    This is going off the assumption they both are telling the truth about being there/going to it, since it'd be about impossible to verify. The second video has an interview with the girl who posted on the blog and her mom.

    They weren't. Hell I'm pretty confident they weren't, however and I went back to make sure I was right on this) it is pretty obvious Claire first immediate assumption was that was what they were doing:
    We were also a little grossed out by all the dads on the balcony above the dance floor, ogling and talking amongst themselves.
    Surely you can agree that is a pretty big assumption to make, and the fact they were talking among themselves is some sign of "naughty," is kind of funny. Maybe she didn't mean it to, but it kind of comes off as though her and/or her friends from the get go decided the dads were pervs who only wanted to ogle teens at the dance. Posters on other sites have also made a good point that is the dads goal were to ogle teen girls, why would they want to kick Claire out?

    Maybe the fact that some jerks think it's a big enough concern to bitch about it on an internet forum even though it's none of their ****ing business?

    Meh. It's whatever. She's a little hooker already. No idea why this was newsworthy.

    One would hope she would learn her lesson and dress appropriately in the future, but I doubt it.

    Probably ejected by the same folks that promote abstinence.

    "Don't have sexual thought young lady...leave that to us adults".
