The 655 LB Gorilla in the room may be that she was with a black gentleman as her date. Were there a lot of bi racial couples at the date? If there were then I am wrong and glad to be so. Either way I feel badly for Clare and as a father of 5 daughters I am disgusted by the way she was treated. She sounds like a fine lady with a bright future. Like many events during the teen years this will be a forgotten memory in the rear view mirror soon enough.
“As my junior year approached, the first semester went exactly like my summer. Nothing changed except that I dedicated more time to community service when I drove back to Nashville”
reading this whole thing is very frustrating if I were a parent or chaperone at this particular dance I would have stuck up for you. But then, I find myself at odds with many of the ridiculous school rules, 8775 zero tolerance 8776 policies and rigid nature of the administrators in charge.

“I was told that the way I dressed and moved my body was causing men to
think inappropriately about me, implying that it is my responsibility to
control other people’s thoughts and drives,” Clare writes in her blog post.
“I’m not responsible for some perverted 95 year old dad lusting after
me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And
if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem.” This is a beautiful strong and powerful FEMINIST statement. Don 8767 t ever stop saying this.

john doesn 8767 t understand that names get capitals, and is completely ignorant of the difference between grammar and spelling. I declare his entire string of comments wrong and invalid based on that information alone.
We married in May and wrote our ceremony (really a compilation of others I had found online and especially through A Practical Wedding). We had somewhat traditional vows including the 8775 for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health 8776 but that is because those things were very important for us to include. We also included the language of it being a choice. The vows began with 8775 I choose you 8776 which was also important to us.
The whole paragraph about the cosmetic/plastic surgery can go except for talking about how you’re glad to help people change their lives. Other than that, it doesn’t have anything to do with why you want to be a PA.
Bride/groom facing each other, say to one another: In the name of God,
I, X, take you Y, to be my husband/wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow.
The behavior shown by the dance 8775 officials 8776 is almost as insulting to the males as it is to the females. The same judgmental attitude that blames women for 8775 enticing 8776 men simultaneously demeans men as beings that cannot control their (allegedly) baser instincts.
Even the house in which the youthful main character lives addsto the sense of moral decay. The former tenant, a priest (now dead),is shown to have been insensitive to the spiritual needs of his legacy was a collection of books that showed his confusion of thesacred with the secular-and there is evidence that he devoted hislife to gathering money and furniture. He left behind no evidenceof a life of spiritual influence.
Don 8767 t kid yourself, Mila. She is tall, beautiful, smart, and worth 8775 ogling 8767 over. This, coming from a 8775 black guy 8776 (as if that changes anything)
Ultimately this is going to lead to a point where officially sanctioned proms are boycotted altogether, and eventually they 8767 ll be outsourced to third party venues that the schools have no control over, and they 8767 ll be democratically organized by student groups instead of parent groups.
I believe the difference is that the officiant is asking you a direct question and you are answering directly- it is made clear in this that you come on your own free will and are not being forced. Sort of archaic and silly, if you ask me.
