See, the thing is, used to be there were other socially acceptable targets to be prejudiced against, but as one by one they either are no longer acceptable to be prejudiced against or they are ground into the dirt (smokers come to mind), new targets must be found, because for some people the need to be prejudiced will always be there.

The statement does not indicate that the issue occurred after she arrived at the prom. It says after the picture was taken, causing the dress to be much more revealing once at the prom. Never mind it's no ones responsibility to carry a sewing kit around

Turned away for looking like a S*ut. Got it. I bet she feels great about herself after that. I think it's a horrible thing to do over some cleavage.

She wasn't turned away. There are pictures of her in the prom, do you just read something and believe it instead of thinking?

I'm a very conservative guy and even I don't think that looks bad.

I'm sure majority of the other girls looked worse and trashier.

The actual situation was that the teacher told her to cover up and said 'us larger women can't do things like that'

I think most of society would agree that "fat" is not usually meant kindly.

Exactly. So much of it in this thread. Just plain old-fashioned meanness.
