Teen Girl Kicked Out of Prom for ‘Impure Thoughts’

A 17-year-old girl was kicked out of her senior prom after lustful dads chaperoning the event complained she was arousing “impure thoughts.” Now, speaking out in a guest story on her sister’s blog, Wine and Marble, the high school senior from Richmond, Virginia is telling her side of the story.

The home-schooled student, Clare, detailed the events leading up to her being told to leave the dance. She tells how the woman organizing the prom expressed disapproval towards Clare’s dress, even after seeing that it met the “fingertip length” dress code. When Clare, who is 5’9″, entered the ballroom, she laughed after seeing that the room was filled with shorter girls in much shorter dresses.

She and her friends were then “a little grossed out” by  the group of dads “ogling and talking amongst themselves” on the balcony above the dance floor. After “swaying with the music and talking and enjoying ourselves” for a few minutes, the same lady who told Clare her dress was too short earlier pulled her aside. The woman told her that the dads thought Clare’s dancing was “too provocative” and in danger of causing young men at the dance to have “impure thoughts.”

Despite making it clear that she didn’t even get a chance to dance yet and that her dress length was within the finger-length regulation, Clare was kicked out of the dance and since they had all driven there together, her friends had to leave too.

To add insult to this incredibly unfortunate series of events, the dance organizer told the group that they would refund everyone’s tickets. However, only Clare received her money back. Within her post, Clare asks the adults who orgazined the Richmond Homeschool Prom to “refund my group as they verbally promised to do, and issue an apology for kicking me out of my senior prom because their husbands felt as though my body was something they had a right to control.”

She writes:

I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem.

As of now, the Richmond Homeschool Prom Facebook page has received so many negative comments of disgust towards the incident that administrators have deleted the page altogether.
