Her excitement during this memorable time of her life turned into embarrassment at the hands of adults who are supposed to be leading her. SHAME on YOU, Maryville. I think you look amazing, Amy.

Like I said previously, kicked out unless she covered up with the principals jacket. If she declined then she has to go. What is your point? Why nit pick the way the girl was treated like she wasn't decent? Turned away, kicked out, either way she couldn't attend unless she put the jacket on.

To appease you I'll say she was threatened. Is that acceptable? You can go out and enjoy your prom if you wear this jacket I got from the principal so that you aren't assaulting people with your big boobs.
How is this any better?

The extra "fatty" comment was just icing on the cake. I bet it will indeed be a night she will not forget.

Yes, that was the point of my previous post. They are accurate words that have negative meanings when used to describe people. Although I said "retarded". Retard as a noun is not only offensive, it's sloppy English.

The writing teacher was morbidly obese, and she chose to use fat to describe herself rather than some other euphemism.

The picture in the post shows a piece of lace that was added to make the dress more conservative. The girl’s parents said that the lace broke off, which made the neckline several inches lower and wider than in the picture. That’s when a teacher asked her to wear a jacket.

WATE 6 will not publish the photos of the teen in the dress after the alterations broke, at the request of her parents. Anglim added that the neither the girl nor her parents complained to the school district about the incident.”


Note that the girl's friend's mother was the one who took it upon herself to state, "This young girl was SHAMED for having breasts.” Not the girl. Not her parents.
THIS^^. Exactly this. The girl's friends mother is an idiot for making such a statement. The dress was unable to contain the young lady's bosum after the added lace broke loose. They asked her to cover up.

Bid deal. The only shaming going on is the statement that woman made.

She wasn't kicked out or threatened you continue to add your own emotion when it's not necessary

I purchased my own prom dress and did not invite my mom shopping with me. By senior year I bought most of my own clothes with money I earned from my part time jobs. Sure my parents would get me stuff sometimes, but by 16 I got most of my stuff myself. It was assumed that I would use my own resources (allowance, birthday money, job money...) to cover my own needs.

I have run up against this one myself. It's 110 degrees outside and the ladies that are small-chested can wear whatever they want, but a hint of cleavage will get you sent home according to corporate dress code.

I used to buy minimizer bras (these essentially strap your breasts down like duct tape. Not real comfy) because I didn't want to wear a burka or a turtleneck to work in the Vegas summers.

Apparently other girls wore backless dresses and thigh high slit dresses to this prom. The dress she wore does not look particularly "revealing" to me. She just has boobs.

Your thoughts?

This Girl Was Kicked Out of Her Prom Because of This "Revealing" Dress
Brag, brag, brag. :
