    Yup.
    And in your mind that translates out to for religious reasons?

    Not clear what constitutes an insult either.

    Did you ignore the rest of it?

    After reading this quote from her, it's obvious what is going on here.

    “I was told that the way I dressed and moved my body was causing men to think inappropriately about me, implying that it is my responsibility to control other people’s thoughts and drives,” Clare writes in her blog post. “I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem.”

    This self absorbed little girl needs to get over herself. As to the various "sources" who made it news to pimp their agenda, I say shame on you.

    Obviously, there is far more to the story, but that would kill the meme they are trying to spread.

    Yes, she 'was told' by a mysterious person that this was going on. I think you're right that it is only the fantasies of just another self absorbed teenager.

    I always crack up whenever I see that. "Gentleman's Club". Sounds so dignified and refined.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    At the same time, the flier boasts of 400 attendees, rather than a very small self selective group. This could support a conclusion that the event was operating from a more secular point of view.
    It's hard to tell. Could be most anything but if you held a gun to my head and made me guess, I'd say it wasn't specifically religious but the group as whole was comprised of a whole lot of conservative christians, and so guests should consider that when it comes to dress, behavior, etc. There's something to be said for being considerate of the people around you.


    There have been many criticisms here. Some members feel she had some kind of intrinsic right to be at the event. Another feels that purchasing a ticket leads to an intrinsic right to attend. Others proclaimed the American Taliban are on a tear - despite the fact it was a private event.

    As for your point, I agree with you. Her dress had been cleared (evidently barely) by the matrons at the door. As such, it should not have been second guessed. Those opposed to the dress need, as you imply, to accept the fact that they will encounter people in the real world who are not in 100% accordance with their conservative socio religous views.

    Of course, that works for progressives too. Some real world private events may well enact restrictions on behavior that are not in full accordance with their socio religous views.
    IMO, having bought a ticket, se *does* have a right to be there and should only have been asked to leave for cause, though as a private event, they can throw her out for any reason they choose. Since we have only heard one side, maybe her behavior was cause but from what's been claimed, it doesn't sound like it. From her description, it sounds like the parents were trying to protect their boys from being tempted, which does sound like something a conservative christian community would do. Particularly one that home schools as removing their kids from a secular environment is often one of the reasons why a conservative christian chooses to home school their kids

    But of course, we don't know this to be true, and this could be just my liberal biases leading me to suspect things that have yet to be proven true, and this girl (who is just a girl) may be rebellious and drama-queening the whole thing.

    And yeah, people all over the political spectrum often impose their viewpoints on others. It's a part of human nature, and as long as it's not taken too far, I don't have a problem with it. In fact, in many situations social pressure to conform to community norms can be a good thing and at a minimum, learning how to get along (or at least go along) with people who are different than you are is a worthy skill for a young person to cultivate. In this case, even if the girls story is 100% accurate, I don't think there are any grounds for a lawsuit. It would merely be a lesson learned for this girl. Even if her story isn't accurate, it's still a lesson for her.

    I wonder how much she would get if she auctioned her virginity when she hit 18 after all this publicity. Capitalism creates a fertile ground for that type of thing.

    You're right. Never thought about it. The guys who frequent those places are very little like gentlemen.

    I think any person who would actually pay money for such a thing is a complete idiot. It's unbelievable to go from virgin to prostitute like that, don't you think?

    LOL, I wouldn't jump to too many conclusions.

    White's is a gentleman's club in St James's Street, London. It is the oldest and most exclusive gentleman's club in London... Notable current members include Charles, Prince of Wales, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Conrad Black and Tom Stacey.
    White's - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are many such clubs in the UK, Boodle's and Brook's are two other well known such establishments. They are simply places gentlemen might go to escape the bustle of a big city - Author and publisher Tom Stacey, who has been a White's member for 40 years, describes it is a "refuge".

    "You can be completely unselfconscious. You are among people you have grown up with, people you went to school with. You speak the same instinctive language. It is not snobbish. It just allows you to relax."

    My dad was a member of White's, and I have been there as a small boy - I can assure you the atmosphere is the very soul of decorum (although I found it also incredibly boring),
    I hate the idea of causes, and if I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country. E.M. Forster
