    As an aside, I don't really know which side to believe. It could have happened either way, and both are plausible IMO. It would be interesting to hear from other teens who were there and what they have to say, as well as dads themselves and other chaperones.
    Earlier in this thread there are links to the opinions of other teens who were there. The thing is that the OP's source got it all wrong. Important to read what the teen in question actually posted on her sister's blog rather than to take a face-value what the OP source said.

    I did read it. I don't see your point. The teen makes all kinds of claims. None of these things prove anything though. It's a he said/she said situation really, and it probably depends entirely on who's viewpoint you might agree with. What one person considers provocative, another person may not. That's another thing to keep in mind.

    I was responding to your saying, "It would be interesting to hear from other teens who were there and what they have to say...." My point was that other teens who were there have commented.

    Well, I didn't read those, but I did read the blog post from the teen herself and her claims. I'll have to look for the comments later.

    This!

    It's a private event, not public. Arbitrary rules may be applied.

    Probably the most important point is that the teenager herself on her sister's blog never said that the fathers had impure thoughts; she wrote that the female chaperone had said that some of the men had expressed concern that the dancing might arouse impure thoughts IN THE TEEN BOYS.

    There are probably other links on this thread, but here is coyotedelmar's Post #135, which has two links: http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1063279325

    Sounds like the bigger issue is in the home life. The teen's, who got the boot, reaction is more concerning to me. Even if my child felt they were wronged they know better than to show disrespect to adult by profanity, rude gestures and name calling online

    A private event only means that you get to make and enforce the rules (within legal bounds, of course). Being private does not automatically give legitimacy or credibility to said rules. They still have to stand up to scrutiny on their own for that.
    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 don't think we disagree. They are certainly open to criticism.

    My point is that civil protections don't apply here. They could have bounced the girl for any reason at all and apart from the cost of the ticket, she's got nothing to base a legal claim on.

    But that didn't stop half of the people in this thread from making false accusations against the fathers.

    There are so many comments out now about what really happened at that prom, and none of them match the story the teen told. No surprise.
