    It seems everyone is jumping to that conclusion as the prom organizers did not object to her dress but to her manner of dance.

    The devil is in the details

    What's wrong with this picture?



    oh, dear, dear me....."impure thoughts" what next?

    I guess we pretty much have to stone the bitch.......

    And why is it America is killing people in Afghanistan? So women can be free to get educations and dress how they like or something.......oh, maybe it's just 14 years of revenge.

    Now, if the home school group hosting it was secular based, then I could see the girl's point as she would reasonably equate secular group with secular dress standards and secular dancing standards.
    As far as I can tell, the only standard was the one about the dress which the girl adhered to.

    Granted, pretty much every event has some standard of behavior that must be adhered to. However, there is nothing specific about her behavior that demonstrates that her eviction was reasonable. The only thing mentioned is that her "dancing" (she denies that she was doing anything more than swaying) might cause the boys to have impure thoughts because it was somehow "inappropriate". That sounds very unclear, so I don't think it's accurate to say that the girl "knew" what the standards were

    No, we are not killing people in Afghanistan so women can be free to dress and dance how they like at any and all private events.

    This line of thought seems very "Bundyesque" - of the Nevada cow stand off. He too confuses his "wants" with his "rights". One good thing though, I dont think a leftists militia is going to try to transform this girls wants into "rights".

    Even allowing her version of events to be totally non biased and objective, if she knew the host group was religous and the event would have religous overtures, and she was really interested in staying, she should have erred on the side of wardrobe caution- not "can I squeek this by?" Thus, Booting her was reaonable.

    Now, a secular host group would have different expectations about dress, dance etc. In that case, I would side with the girl.

    You mean that some of the men had child molestation on their minds, and it was the child who was kicked out, and not the perverts?

    I guess I was a little too esoteric for your intellect.

    Let me try again: Nobody has a right to attend a private event. References to Afghanistan, Taliban, stoning etc are not really material.

    Nice. I hope Moot sees this. According to her, men who have thoughts about young attractive girls need help because they are about to act on their thoughts with their own daughters.

    Do you want to have sex with your teenage relatives?

    Standards are going to be different, and the prom organizers had the right to remove the student for violating standards or rules. Even if there was dispute about whether or not the student had been removed unjustly by strictly those rules of conduct, it is still beside the point. Most people are arguing that the philosophy that a woman being responsible for the thoughts of men is a bad or imbalanced standard. If that philosophy more or less framed the viewpoint of the organizers, that is what is being critiqued.
