Girl Kicked Out of Prom Because of Horny Dads

This story on WND comes from the Christian Post and is their usual 3-paragraph snippet: “Dress ‘Too Impure’ for Homeschool Prom.”

The girl went to prom and she obeyed all the dress codes. But, male chaperones (dads) began to have impure thoughts, notified a female chaperone, and she kicked her out: “some of the dads who were chaperoning had complained that my dancing was too provocative and that I was going to cause the young men at the prom to think impure thoughts.”

FYI, you might want to read an actual unbiased version of this story rather than the Christian Post one … perhaps one from Americans Against the Tea Party (wink): “‘Christian’ Homeschool Dads Get Girl Kicked Out of Prom Because They Can’t Stop Lusting After Her.”

Yeah, see, that whole part of it — the dads being the ones pointing out the impure thoughts — is the creepy part that’s buried in WND’s version. Really creepy.

So, because a young woman decides to get guzzied up for the biggest social event of her non-high school career, following all the rules, she gets kicked out because some old men can’t control their penises and so point out that some of the boys may not, either. Yeah, because they can’t control themselves, she is the one who gets kicked out.

And that’s that power of religious: It allows you to subjugate an entire gender – half of your population – because your religion lets you. It says that the woman is the provocateur, that men are just reacting to them, therefore you must remove the woman, keeping her subjugated and wearing nothing but her burlap bag.

And WND commenters agree. Now, granted, “Melissa”‘s comment – which is at the top with 13 up-votes and an unknown number of down-votes and extra up-votes – wrote, “LOL! Seventeen year old boys don’t need an excuse to have impure thoughts. They wake up with them! Haaaa”

I say that we don’t actually know the votes because Disqus has the next comment – the second-highest – with 17 up-votes by “GTHSBB Momma” who wrote: “It’s one thing for women to want to be beautiful, but quite another when they want to draw attention to themselves. This young woman was embarrassed when she got called out for making a spectacle of herself. Her parents need to teach her not only about modesty, but about having the humility to accept a rebuke.”

No, she got embarrassed because she was told to leave because old guys were leering at her. That she was kicked out of her prom.
