(CBS Baltimore)   High school requiring students to sign a "dance contract" banning them from twerking, grinding, intimate touching, dancing with their buttocks in the air or touching. Well, at least it doesn't say anything about riding a wrecking ball nekkid   (baltimore.cbslocal.com) divider line 97

They're all addicted to marijuana. I saw it in a movie.

/BJs under the bleachers still OK, I assume.

How much of a control freak do you have to be in order to come up with policies like that......thank God my kids aren't in that district, because I'd have a field day with that administration...

I'm older than some of you, younger than others.  In my elementary and high school days, we were warned against the lambada.

It depends on the district demographics. I used to teach in inner-city Phoenix. It's disturbing seeing 6th-8th graders grinding on each other. We had to stop that crap every single dance. ALL teachers had to chaperone, and it wasn't a matter of being control freaks. The kids didn't really think anything was wrong with it because they learned it from their parents, older siblings, the neighborhood, TV, wherever. Different culture. It was up to us to teach them that it's not acceptable for kids to dance like it's spring break in Daytona. Your kids might know better, but others don't. Luckily we had some really cool, hip, young male teachers to teach the boys how to dance like gentlemen.

I wouldn't chaperone a high school dance, either, that didn't have very specific rules in place, if nothing more than to shield myself from liability. If you don't lay out the guidelines clearly, kids are going to push those nebulous limits. That's their nature.

Dancing is a means of self-expression. If this school wants to take on the First Amendment, I think they're in for a rude awakening.

Touching?!? Wth is this footloose or something? I'm sorry, but if you're dancing with me, your getting touched.

LOL.

I thought the Flanshdance was the most absurd premise to create a dance movie but this happens in real life.

It all comes down to lawsuits.  If a 14-year-old girl says she was humiliated and harassed because someone grabbed her ass, and the school is partially responsible for hosting the event and not providing proper... blah blah blah cash settlement. So the school is just being financially prudent.

If I were a school administrator, I wouldn't put up with the headache of such events. School is for learning and some athletics. You want to dance with your classmates? Go do it on your own time.

/yeah, I'm no fun

This.  It's a school dance, not a national law for all teens.  Meaning people have to chaperone, meaning watch all the  annoying crap.  Having some rules in place saves a lot of headache.  Who wants to watch a bunch of teens act like Miley Cyrus's extra awkward brand of "sexy"?(have a seat over there)

They can do whatever they want on their own time.  School is supposed to prepare them for society, to include behaving in acceptable ways when required.

I suppose they couldn't just control the dancing by being careful on which music to play.

I'd like to see them try to twerk it up to Chopin's Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor!
 
2013-10-24 05:32:52 AM
How much will this dance cost the public, afterwards? There are bound to be bastards conceived afterwards. Spiking the punch with a sterilization mickey seems prudent.

You are mistaken. The courts have made it clear that children do not have their full first amendment rights when they are under the care of teachers, staff etc. This was made clean in the "Bong hits for Jesus" case.

They would do it anyway. Music blah blah savage beast, etc. Anyway, there would be a discrimination lawsuit if their tribal beats weren't played.

I've been wrong before. Wouldn't want to get myself stuck in the slamming door.

How about some information, please?

Please, please?

Ha! You're cute. Thinking high schoolers have first amendment rights.
 
2013-10-24 06:17:35 AM
They should have also banned waving your arms in the air like you don't really care.  It's nihilistic.
 
2013-10-24 06:20:48 AM
yeah cos if you ban grinding at a high school dance, it follows absolutely definitely that they won't have inappropriate sex.
 
2013-10-24 06:23:06 AM
I support a no-twerking rule 100%. I'd rather see them having sex on the dance floor, at least there's some dignity in that.

I've got an idea, let's just have a race to the bottom!

Or, maybe we could just demand a certain level of decorum at public events, if for no other reason than to give the students a venue to practice dignified behavoir in a social setting.

They can mate like feral animals afterwards for all I care (like you say, they will anyway), but that doesn't mean we should allow them to act like feral animals before hand.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Easy, just don't have school dances. Stupid things.


I agree, but from what I understand, these sorts of things are usually under the control of adults whose hearts never left high school.

Me, I couldn't wait to get the fark out of there, which probably goes for most people around here.  The last reunion was organized by the popular kids.

Drug use, animal sacrifice, and public sex are practiced in some religion, yet those are routinely and sometimes totally curtailed.

So are T-shirts saying, "Fark this School", yet I don't think that will fly in school either.

And then there is the right to bear arms.  That certainly doesn't mean "anywhere you farking please" now, does it?

Rudely awakened yet?
 
2013-10-24 07:13:02 AM
Or those who want it can host their own dance, with blackjack and hookers.

What about windmills or picking up change?  Are windmills allowed?

No kidding... the fuel injection systems on Swedish cars in the 80's were nothing to sneeze at.

The bong hits case was more narrow than that because it expressly applies to student speech promoting illegal drug use.
Schools have always maintained that students have no rights.

/don't necessarily disagree with their stance in this instance

Our dances were supervised back in ancient times.  The chaperons insisted on seeing daylight between slow dancing couples.  It only made us hornier.
