CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – A teenage girl says she was kicked out of a homeschool prom after several dads complained that her dress evoked “impure thoughts.”

The 17-year-old shared her experience on a blog, which has gone viral. w1

Our sister station WTVR reports that Clare, a homeschooled teen from Chesterfield, says she arrived at the prom in a short, sparkly dress, a chaperon immediately pulled her to the side. But the dress was at fingertip length, the only dress requirement for the prom.

Later, Clare discovered that some of the dads who were chaperoning had complained that her dancing was too provocative, and that she was going to “cause the young men at the prom to think impure thoughts.”

After being scolded for both her dress and her “provocative” dancing, she was then told to leave.

“I’m not responsible for some perverted 45-year-old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem,” Clare says in her blog.
