I remember my prom. I had a rented tux with cummerbund that matched my date’s dress. we were styling. my date’s dress was red, sequined, flattering yet appropriate. Just above the knee, straps and beautiful. Just like an 18 year old is supposed to be at her prom. Just like Clare is in the photo above.
However, it was a little too much for the Dad chaperons at her Richmond, Virginia prom last week. They told her that her appearance was “making the boys think impure thoughts”. Are you kidding me! At 17, every women whether they wore a bikini or a burka was giving me impure thoughts. I would suggest that those boys parents weren’t doing their parental duty by preparing their sons for living in a world where they will have to restrain themselves from attacking all the pretty girls and having their way with them.
I think the parents at this particular prom should be ashamed for ruining not only this young ladies prom but possibly her reputation in the community. Time to pop a top and let the kids celebrate one of the biggest milestones in their life… just like they did when they were 17.
