MECHANICSVILLE, Va (WITI) — A teenage girl says she was kicked out of a homeschool prom after several fathers at the dance complained that her dress evoked “impure thoughts,” according to WWBT.

17-year-old Clare, who is homeschooled, was attending the Richmond Homeschool Prom’s “Twilight in Paris” dance when the incident occurred.

According to WWBT, there was one requirement when it came to dressing for the dance: dresses had to be fingertip length.

Clare’s family claims the dress met the guidelines.  However, she was told to leave after some of the fathers chaperoning the dance said her dress and dancing was too provocative.

Following the incident, 17-year-old Clare wrote about her experience in a blog — and the entry has gone viral.

    Sounds like the fathers were the ones with impure thoughts. They shouldn’t be checking children out.with their impure thoughts in mind.

      Agreed. and not only that, when it comes to high school guys, any clothing on a girl will evoke impure thoughts! Also, that dress really wasn’t that bad.

  • Brad

    that’s what they said, Charity. “the dress evoked impure thoughts”…
    However you are right, they shouldn’t have been looking at her like that anyways.

  • Emily

    Clearly the fathers were upset that they were having these thoughts. Where I am betting some men would just enjoy the view without shame. Which is worse?

    “I think I’ll wear this dress because I am hot sexy!”

    “HOW DARE YOU NOTICE HOW HOT SEXY I AM YOU OLD MAN!”

    Its a team effort people. Where is the prudence in our society today?

    This was the first high school dance where the waiting line for the boys’ bathroom was longer than the girls’.

    Much much longer.

      Home schooled children are lesser than others? I imagine you think if you are in a tuitioned school, those children are even better than regular school children It is people like you, and there ignorant comments that show how things like this happen. I know lots of homeschooled children that are awesome and become great employees, business people, etc. I do not homeschool mine, by my choice, but with the way society and people like you think, or I should say do not think, I am thinking more on doing so also for safety reasons.

    Hm They are saying it envoked unpure thoughts how she dressed? But if a Muslim girl was to attend in her modest attire including headcover she would be ridiculed for her dress. Double standards much ????? Maybe they should look into there own sick minds if this is how they as grown men thought of a 17 yr old girl. Men will be pervs it is why all girls should dress modestly to protect themselves from these type of things

    Seems really messed up that a teenager get punished because she’s surrounded by perverts. The real question should be why are these adults having impure thoughts. If she was 18 would that have made any difference? Let see why this happens in the first place? I’m a 33 yr old man and I look at teenagers just the same as my own children who are 6. When an adult says that he has impure thought about a minor that will eventually lead to sexual assault. Do why is the girl suffering for adults inappropriate thinking? Seems wrong in my eyes.

    I think most were offended by the inter racial relationship as well. It disgusts me on both things- but they had to come up with something besides what they were thinking. That is what many of my office thought when watching this video- We think it had to do more with a white girl and black guy than her outfit or maybe the way they were dancing with eachother that bothered them. Those adults should be ashamed of themselves. Being homeschooled isn’t bad but how do other kids get to know how to relate to other races? This is sad all around cause I do not believe it was about her dress soley.

    • Robin Bilaloglu

      Wow Nicole ignorance and racism? You make the rest of us HUMANS sick you disgust me!!!! And so do your office mates as well. People learn to relate to as friends schoolmates neighbors to all races if they have parents who are not ignorant and take the time to teach ther children all ALL humans are created equal even idiots like you should not be picked on ridiculed or ostrisized because of there stupidity as should noone be picked on ridiculed or ostrisized for there race religion or anything else. You are a pathetic example of a human being if this is how you think. I certainly hope someday your life does not depend on the african american, mexican, asian or any other race to who could help you live because you propbably would be ignorant enough to refuse the help to save your life. By the way I am proud to be a caucasion human beig with friends and family from all different races religions and cultures thank God none are ignorant like you and you co workers

      Nicole, I agree with you. I first read somewhere else that that may have been an issue so I did a little research of my own on Mrs. D and her offspring – many of the remarks on her page and her kid’s pages (apples don’t fall far from the tree) were questionable and I found extremely offensive – ridiculing and making very odd remarks about black people.

      • Robin Bilaloglu

        Not sure your comment makes sense or if you actually read Nicoles correctly Caroline. You say you agree with her in the 1st sentence but by the end you say” remarks made were offensive – ridiculing and making very odd remarks about black people.” Are you sure you know what you are commenting because Nicole stated ( I think most were offended by the inter racial relationship as well.( It disgusts me on both things- but they had to come up with something besides what they were thinking. That is what many of my office thought when watching this video- We think it had to do more with a white girl and black guy than her outfit or maybe the way they were dancing with each other that bothered them. Those adults should be ashamed of themselves. Being homeschooled isn’t bad but how do other kids get to know how to relate to other races? This is sad all around cause I do not believe it was about her dress soley. She either thinks race is a problem or mis worded her text cuz to me her stating It disgusts me on both things sound loike she is a racist But I get it now I hope she was stating she is disgusted by the pervs and the racist that are using her dress as an excuse to hide there rascism :) sorry to Nicole if I implied you were and are not.
