When Clare and her date arrived at the “Twilight in Paris,” prom she was questioned about the length of her dress.
The sparkling silver outfit came to the tips of her fingers, meeting the dress code posted for the event.
Organizers of the Richmond Homeschool prom relented, but told Clare to be careful and keep the dress pulled down.
WWBT in Richmond, Virginia reports it was just 15 minutes later when Clare, and her date were approached again.
This time they were told she had to go.
On her sister’s blog, Clare said a woman told her, “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. Despite being supported by her friends, Clare was forced to leave the prom, and her friends went with her.
Clare defended herself this way. “I’m not responsible for some perverted 45-year-old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on,” she began.
“And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem,” she concluded.
The prom was held at Shady Grove United Methodist Church.
