What, are they afraid that the girls who go dateless will wind up immaculately conceiving?

Guess you didn't think that plan of going to a school where social events are governed by old single men wearing gowns all the way through.

If you don't want to follow arbitrary and stupid rules, don't enlist in a religious cult. It really is that simple.

farking relax, girl. Save that stuff for next year.
 
2012-04-25 03:28:07 PM  
Is there seriously nobody that she can drag into the prom with her? What's the matter with taking a friend, a cousin, a brother, etc., to the prom as a "date"?

/Why yes, I AM from Texas! ;)
 
2012-04-25 03:28:16 PM  
I did that once. I iced this chick who was gallivanting around with a mutual acquaintance of ours, thinking it wouldn't get back to me. I dropped her like a bad habit right after she bought her dress.

(evil!)

Meh, she's a junior. She's got a whole year to find another guy that'll ditch her.
 
2012-04-25 03:30:01 PM  
Smart move. I applaud the guy.
/No, I wouldn't

What's with all these stories about prom drama? At my school it was just something to get through for the adults' benefit so we could go out and party. fark the prom.
 
2012-04-25 03:30:21 PM  
Not to worry, she can always go in 30 years.
 
2012-04-25 03:30:22 PM  
Welcome to Catholic schooling. My high school had the same rule: Want to go stag? Stay home, because we aren't letting you in.
 
2012-04-25 03:31:21 PM  
She's not that hot, she should get used to disappointment.
 
2012-04-25 03:32:01 PM  
Hey parents? If you want to send your kid to an uptight religious school for whatever reason, fine, but don't whine when they then act like an uptight religious school. You want a school where they have to be fair to everyone? Send your kid to a public school. Don't cry and expect the rest of us to give a shiat when a Catholic school acts like a Catholic school.

Spent a $1,000 on prom??? Maybe this will be a valuable lesson on how not to waste your money?
 
2012-04-25 03:33:15 PM  
Your problem with Catholic dogma is their rules about prom? You've got a rude awakening coming honey.
 
2012-04-25 03:34:32 PM  
"She's been excited for a couple of years (about prom)," her father, Jack Dougherty, told the TV station.

Wow, so once it's gone, I guess she'll have nothing left to live for. Too bad.

can't bring a porn star to the prom. Can't go alone. What are these kids supposed to do?

2012-04-25 03:39:45 PM  
She should bring another girl. Just for the trolling factor.

nunpunter: If you don't want to follow arbitrary and stupid rules, don't enlist in a religious cult. It really is that simple.


So much this. I always wonder why people go to these private religious schools and then complain when they have to follow arbitrary rules. Religions have been making these rules and forcing their adherents to follow them (with varying degrees of success) for centuries. If you don't like the rules, you are free to leave, but whining about them is stupid.

/thank god we can leave. Nice to live in an age where leaving the church doesn't get you branded a heretic and tortured/burned

Are you saying Mary's parents did NOT hook up in a high school bathroom?
 
2012-04-25 03:44:40 PM  
So unless your gender balance is a perfect 1:1 or you allow "outsiders" to be dates, someone will be excluded in what is essentially a cruel game of "musical chairs".

Otherwise, you could advertise on Craigslist for a date...

You could always get a jewish kid wearing a yarmulke to the prom.
 
2012-04-25 03:45:08 PM  
Damn, she looks big enough to take her dad on in a wrestling match.

The day of the prom, we all got to leave at lunch time so we could go get ready and what not. My girlfriend went off with her other friends. I was so excited, because it was our senior prom, we were really serious about each other, and I'd bought a ring. I knew from the prom committee that she was going to be the queen, so I talked them into letting me be king. I planned to propose to her on stage, in front of all of our friends. I imagined it'd be the happiest day of her life.

The friend that was driving my girlfriend home dropped her cigarette, lost control, and flipped her Pontiac Sunfire Convertible. She was doing about eighty, so by the time the car skidded to a stop on its roof, the asphalt had ground down their skulls, flat to the base of their necks.

It was the only funeral I've ever been to that was closed casket from the neck up. I put the engagement ring on her finger, kissed her hand one last time, and watched them lower our dreams into the ground. Saddest day of my life.

the sooner this young lady is repulsed by the faith her parents immersed her in pre-birth the sooner she can get on the road to recovery.

pray for her delivery from cult insanity.

Well, at least you had over 50% of the body so you still could've gone to this prom.

She picked out such a beautiful dress.

If she read the RTF(S)M that came with an enrolment, she would have know this and could have planned accordingly.

/Years of "planning" should be enough time to read the chapter about prom.

Spentmiles, I am so sorry. It must have really been terrible to dance at your one and only senior prom with someone who was headless and dead.
 
2012-04-25 03:58:05 PM  
she should just go with one of her girlfriends so the ACLU stirs up a shiatstorm them when they get turned away for being a same-sex couple.
 
2012-04-25 03:58:56 PM  
What is the big deal? I got asked to a guy's prom two days before the dance after his girlfriend dumped him. I already had the dress for my prom so I went and had a good time. Just ask another guy who doesn't have a date and stop being a baby about it.
 
2012-04-25 04:00:02 PM  
I would expect that the rules are in place to prevent dateless wonders from depressing all the other kids, or from desperately hooking up with anybody who is willing to slow dance in spite of the strong aroma of breakfast sausage.
