Virginia Teen Is Allegedly Provocative, Gets The People Going. Gets Kicked Out of Prom.
This story might be one of the most ridiculous I’ve heard in a while. For those who haven’t heard about it, a 17-year-old girl in Richmond, VA was attending her homeschooler prom and her allegedly too short (it wasn’t too short) dress and dancing caused the fathers in attendance to claim that she was causing other boys to have impure thoughts and had her kicked out of the prom.
(She wrote a blog post linked via the Gawker post about the whole thing which I’m pretty sure is all over the place at this point.)
Or in other words, these fathers were watching her dance – probably just like every other 17-year-old girl dances these days – and determined that she was doing too much and they got a little bit aroused and as opposed to checking their own sh*t, they had her removed.
Before I say the inflammatory stuff, let me step into my hot tub time machine to my own prom back in the 90s. Kids will be kids. They dance. We definitely were getting it in at my prom. And there were boobs a plenty. My own date had a very low cut dress on. I had ALL kinds of impure thoughts. I remember seeing some very short dresses as well. It’s prom. Girls find the dress of their prom dreams and for one night do what they will. Of course nobody is going ham and showing up basically nude – this girl didn’t either – so all’s well that ends well. And yes there were chaperones who probably let us dance a bit closer than is legally allowed by the school, or would if such law existed. Point is..the point of it all is…unless she was actually dressing like a ratchet, then I don’t see the problem. Hell, how’d she get in the door?
Next…we’re teetering VERY close to the edge on this one with the men claiming that she was causing them to have impure thoughts.
Let’s keep it 1 hundy. All boys are having impure thoughts. A girl showing up in a burka in high school probably has some pervy boy wondering whats up under that long sheet. Prom ain’t the undoing of high school boys. Eyes are the undoing of high school boys. So this wasn’t about the boys, this was about the fathers who are blaming this girl for their own issues. And yes, this is right there at that line of: my bad behavior is her fault. If she didn’t look like that, I wouldn’t behave like this.
And yes, Virginia, that is ludicrous. She was “provoking” them SO much that she got put out. Not them. Those grown men put a girl out of a prom because they couldn’t handle it. It’s entirely possible that his prom was the most Puritanical celebration ever and she came thru, hit a nae-nae, then tried to buss it open for a real n*gga. Maybe she put her hands on the ground and nobody saw her face for an hour. Doubtful, I don’t know. If she was being lews or intentionally disruptive, okay…you put folks out for not following rules.
But her very BEING was the problem? Sexism is real. Of course, this is just my perspective.
What do you all think? Should she have been put out for being “provocative” or were the fathers who put her out trippin?
