Mary Hill used to hang out in Cherry Hill Park. The game she played lasted all day to way after dark. Now, all the girls, they criticized her but all the guys just idolized her, cause Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark

I am sure that the teacher's problem with the girl is that she was ruining the photos of all the pretty pretty princesses.

"The teacher tapped me on the shoulder and said she had a problem with what I was wearing. I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket and I was like, 'Well, I'll take those off,' and she was like no, 'It's the pants.'"

Well... take them off.

I don't see a problem with them having a dress code for the prom, though apparently they never published one which was a mistake.  The issue should have been someone of either gender wearing jeans and sneakers to a formal event, not the fact that it was a girl in pants.  If a girl wants to wear a full tux, or a dude a formal dress, I guess that should be kosher, but come on, have a little class and don't dress like you wandered in from the skate park.

What if it's gay black females wearing pants?

Am I allowed be outraged then? Or is it only when it's against my tribe, old white American of Polish, Czechoslovakian Roman Catholic decent?

Are boys allowed to wear pants to the prom? Would her pants have been acceptable if worn by a boy? Was the only issue with her wearing pants her gender? Is this a public school?

Since the answers to all of these are yes, you can expect a lawsuit and a very, very quick settlement. Since we've already had this exact case before.

I'm kinda glad the family hasn't bothered to sue the school (yet).  This sounds like it could be nicely addressed by a good old fashioned media shaming of the school for not having their shiat together in regards to the prom's dress code.

Although, since they had it at some local country club maybe the club has a dress code, like ties required and no jeans.

/She could have worn a pantsuit.
//Red skinny jeans.  ugh.
 
2014-04-22 10:51:20 PM
Yeah, but those are kind of sloppy pants.  A dude might get hassled for rolling up like that.  I didn't RTFA, so flame on for what I missed, but she could have tried harder.  My friend's daughter is a 17 year-old lesbian and she looked a lot sharper than that at a wedding we were at last weekend in her pants and dress shirt (with bowtie).

I, as a groomsman, was stuck in some ugly ass tux that my friends kept joking some teen jizzed in last weekend.  I hear that dry cleaning chemicals are dangerous.  I certainly hope so.

2014-04-22 10:56:34 PM
I skipped my own prom, not my thing. That said, why can't people just wear proper prom type of attire and stop trying to be attention whores? It's not the time nor the place and just makes you look like an asshat in the end. Girl in TFA looks horrible.
 
2014-04-22 10:57:02 PM
It's a high school dance. Something that you'll pay way too much money for in order to get pictures that you'll never look at again.

You'll get over that one kid who didn't dress up as well as you, I promise.

I was thinking the same thing as I saw the picture of the pants. Jeans to the prom ? seriously ?

You'd think a young adult would be able to figure out it was a bad idea without needing to have it spelled out in a dress code...
 
2014-04-22 11:02:52 PM
Oh look another attention whore
 
2014-04-22 11:02:52 PM
Honestly, I wish they'd just ditch the whole tradition, along with school "royalty."

It's dumb. Kids dress any way they want at a dance. Jeans cost upwards of 50-100 dollars, anyway.

Get over yourselves.

I could give a shiat less that she wore pants to prom.

Anyone wearing skinny jeans to prom, however, which is still considered (last I checked) an event requiring formal wear, should be kicked out.

If a boy wants to wear a gown, or a girl a tux, go for it. It is 2014, after all. But skinny jeans--regardless of the gender (or gender identity) of the individual wearing them--are not appropriate for a formal/black tie event. If Kanye West's arrogant ass can find a tuxedo to wear to a formal event despite his belief that he is a cutting-edge fashion god, so can she.

I really hate the way kids dress. This kid looks like a farking moron. Looking like an idiot doesn't mean she deserves to get the boot!
 
2014-04-22 11:05:14 PM
Ya, I don't think it was wearing "pants" that was an issue.  It's wearing jeans...that happen to be pants.  If you think jeans are "formal" because of cost, you're a farking idiot.
 
2014-04-22 11:06:04 PM
She should have gone with a guy wearing a skirt.

2014-04-22 11:07:25 PM
Did they send any guys home for dressing like that or did all of them have the sense to come in formal attire? Get over yourself and grow up. Try going to a formal dinner once you're an adult dressed like that and guess what, you're going to be asked to leave!

Its not because its the south or because everyone wants to hate on the people who don't want to conform it was a promenade and by definition it is a formal ball. farking teenagers thinking the world has to bend to their rules because they want to be different. You know what be different, don't go to prom, have your own skater boy dance the same day. You don't like the fact that all the other people are having a dance that you didn't want to put forth the effort to go to, do what we did as teenagers shut up and stay the hell at home.

true story bro'

A girl in my high school wanted to wear a tux to the prom.  They told her no.  Nobody was really sure if she was a lesbian or not, but we all suspected it.  If she was, she was probably just afraid to let it be known because we were kind of homophobic back then.  She wore a dress to prom and her date was a guy, so I'm still not sure if she was a lesbian.  It's not any of my business anyway.

I think she should have told them to fark off and worn a tuxedo anyway.  I'm not sure what the administrators expected to happen.  Would God rain down thunder and lighting?  I doubt it, but that would have been interesting.

It was probably the most religious secular school in the whole state.  We said the Lord's Prayer during assembly and scripture was sometimes quoted, but it was not a religious school.  Besides, the founder was a Christian Scientist or something and those people are just nuts.  Seriously, the school had moved on from that and most people no matter how religious they were thought Christian Scientists were nuts.

Oh geez, again...looking for sexism again where it doesn't exist.  The issue is what is considered "formal wear" and what is not.

Good for her, and Fark the school!   Average prom cost dropped this year... to just below a THOUSAND dollars per student.  WTF.    Glad to see a student be logical, instead of a Sneauflake who needs a grand dropped for a few dumb hours.

What she was wearing could not have been more conservative and plain, other than the red trousers being red. Other schools have to deal with young ladies showing too much.  This seems like the pettiest of petty nonsense. She was fully clothed and even more formal than the usual jeans and tee shirt look.
 
2014-04-22 11:16:28 PM
She should have worn a tux. Lots of ladies look good in a tux.
 
2014-04-22 11:16:44 PM
Back in my day, a bunch of guys from one of our sports teams showed up to prom wearing proper tux tops and very, very loud jams shorts and no one seemed to care. Later on in the evening they managed to coerce the band that was hired for the event (Pebbles and the Bam-Bam Boys, I believe their name was) to play nothing but AC/DC songs for the rest of their set.
 
2014-04-22 11:18:08 PM
And as we all know, the word of a high-schooler is gospel. I'm sure this played out exactly as she described it, and in no way did she try to deliberately scour the dress code to ensure that she would find a way to show up in violation with the express intention of getting kicked out... of a prom that she had also probably insisted that she had no interest in.

On the other hand, given the "Asst. Principal Vernon school of school administration" that still seems to be en vogue, it also wouldn't surprise me if it happened exactly the way she described it.

Either way, both sides look like douchebags for caring so much about a prom. I didn't even know these were still a thing; I thought kids were completely over them by now. You know, because Millennials (or whatever this round is called) is so like totally beyond all the like totally bogus stuff that previous generations did.

PROM
präm/

North American
a formal dance, especially one held by a class in high school or college at the end of a year.

What bothers me is that the very definition of Prom is A FORMAL DANCE.  Why do freaking morons have to make an idiotic statement that means nothing to pretty much everyone?  If you're a lesbian, FINE!  BE A LESBIAN FORMALLY FOR ONE FREAKING NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE... or better yet, don't go to a FORMAL DANCE if you don't want to dress formal!  Have some god damn respect for the 99% of kids that just want to dress up and have a good time (and possibly get laid for once in their life.)  I don't feel that we should even have to remind people that Prom is supposed to be a formal dance.  The fact is that this girl probably caused such a scene, many kids will be talking about how she got kicked out opposed to the fun time and memories they should have been making.  It's a damn shame that parents don't have the decency to speak to their kids and tell them the right and wrong times to make a statement.

Schools shouldn't have to dumb down rules for stupid children, and I see this becoming an ever increasing problem.  I have no problem for kids standing up for what they believe in, but this girl was going to a formal dance dressed informally.

She should be embarrassed for her choice of venue in which to make a statement, it only made her look stupid and her parents look bad.

Who the fark is spending a grand on prom?  Granted, mine was about 15 years ago, but still:

Tickets for two: $40
Tux Rental: $60ish
Corsage for date: $20
Dinner beforehand (for two): $40ish

Total: $180, and that was me covering most of the cost for my date, all she had to do was buy a dress, and I've seen those on sale for well under $100.

Granted, I never rented a limo, but neither did most other people.  How are people spending that much money on prom?

Tickets are more expensive now, as are dresses, tuxes, and dinner at a decent place. It can be done for less than $500, but going to $1000 wouldn't be too tough.

High School dance, let her wear what she wants. If you think thats bad you need to look back at the fashions of the 70s and 80s. Formal fashion is extremely dynamic, and is set oddly enough by people who make up their own rules rather than following the rules they are given.

I've already told the story of the girl in my high school that wasn't allowed to wear a tux, but aside from non-traditional gender clothing there wasn't any dress code at all.  There might have even been a guy who wore jeans, a t-shirt and a tuxedo jacket, I don't really remember.  The faculty and school administrators didn't give a shiat.  Prom was something for students to have fun at and aside from a "tsk-tsk" no one would have stopped anyone from dressing casually.  They might have been mercilessly mocked by all the other students, but they would have been allowed to dress that way.

As long as the girls didn't wear tuxes and the guys didn't wear dresses of course.

My sister got married on the same night as senior prom. Never even got the chance to drunkely grope my date in my mom's Volvo. That happened on many many many other occasions. '87 740 GLE w/ the hand crank sunroof. That biatch was classy.
