    In a guest post on her sister’s blog, Clare reports how one of the women organizing the dance disapproved of her dress, even after checking to see it met the “fingertip length” dress code requirement. Later the same chaperone who had complained about Clare’s dress pulled her aside to tell her that some of the dads felt her presence was “too provocative” and liable to cause “impure thoughts” among the males in attendance.

    While in the ballroom, Clare reports a group of dads on a balcony above the dance floor were “ogling” the teen girls in attendance, making Clare and her friends feel uncomfortable.

    What's wrong with this picture?
    they removed the wrong person?

    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),
    LOL!!!... Just because some men are in high positions doesn't automatically mean they are gentlemen away from public attention.
    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.

    I'm not sure quite what you are attempting to refute. I simply stated that 'gentlemen's clubs' are a different animal in the UK, and are not seedy venues, regardless of the membership. Surely you have similar establishments in the USA?

    Yes. The general term with which I'm familiar is "private club." From Wiki (scroll down for a list of U.S. clubs similar to the ones in Britain to which you're referring):

    In the United States, the term "gentlemen's club" commonly is used to refer euphemistically to strip clubs. As a result, traditional gentlemen's clubs often are referred to as "men's clubs" or "city clubs" (as opposed to country clubs) or simply as "private social clubs" or just "private clubs".

    LOL, thanks! I didn't know that 'gentleman's club' was an euphemism for a 'strip joint' in the USA. I guess, despite all our tradition, we are a little more down to earth on this side of the pond. For example, we call an arse 'an arse', not a donkey.

    Oops, yeah, I didn't realize that in Europe the term actually is a little more respectable.

    Well, we don't misspell "ass" anyway.

    LOL, neither do we - from the King James Bible -

    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass ...

    The Oxford English Dictionaries define 'ass' as follows -

    A hoofed mammal of the horse family, which is typically smaller than a horse and has longer ears and a braying call.

    Genus Equus, family Equidae: E. africanus of Africa, which is the ancestor of the domestic ass or donkey, and E. hemionus of Asia

    If the dads are experiencing "impure" thoughts about the teenage girls, then perhaps they shouldn't be there at the prom cramping the girls' style?

    Maybe the girls should accommodate.

    Did I just channel Gipper?
