High school senior kicked out of prom for wearing pants

It is sad. Those that drink and type. Really people should understand their limits and take appropriate measures to ensure that their drunken blathering are kept from the sober public at large. Hopefully you are taking measures to combat your substance abuse problem, what ever that substance maybe.  (May 5, 2014 | post #25)

Are you actually try to make an intelligent response or do you just have verbal diarrhea? How is one related to the other? Not only does this post of yours not make any sense what so ever, it is not even related to this thread and very off topic.  (May 2, 2014 | post #20)

So now not only am I a racist I am also a Muslim? Who is the racist with a comment like that? Or were you talking to someone else? Hard to tell from such a broad statement.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #17)

Not even sure why I bothered. You are disrespectful low class scum that believes the individual has the right, even the duty to walk all over societies social etiquette. Nothing is sacred and everything beautiful or traditional should be torn down and ruined for the group just "because it is there". You believe that the dead deserve no respect, that a young girl should be inappropriate and that anyone that disagrees with you must be a racist. I even bet that when you are riding an elevator and a good looking man gets on and smiles at you that you get nervous. Don't you? Types like you are usually the homophobic type. I believe that the home is sacred to the individual and that whatever happens behind the door of a home is the head of household's business as long as it is not harming or illegal to someone else. I say to each his own. But, when it comes to living harmoniously within a society that the individual needs to respect the group. If the individual does not respect the group then it his or her duty to make their own group with rules and norms that they wish to promote. Tearing down the groups norms and disrespecting tradition is not how to do it. It should have been this girls parents that taught her what is expected within the group to live harmoniously. Obviously her mother is just as disillusioned as she is and you are. When I told you to get a life I should have said fix your life. If you do not like the traditions that society has established for the students for Cherryville High school that attend the prom then organize your own prom where skinny red jeans are perfectly acceptable. I would not want to attend a church where dirty clothes or shorts are acceptable. But it is my decision to attend a church that has rules, albeit unwritten, but rules that prohibit that type of behavior. For I and my friends like me find that behavior unacceptable. Likewise I would probably not associate with people that find wearing jeans to a funeral acceptable. But for other people to believe that way is fine with me, just do not think that I or my friends will find it acceptable with the people that we choose to associate with. You will probably say that because Cherryville High is a public institution that it should be illegal for officials to force rules on this girl. I do not agree because it is your attempt to tear down the standards of the community to your level. In the gutter. I think that one of the purposes for the prom is to initiate kids into a society and level of socialization that prepares them for adulthood. You believe that it is a place to party harty. And that everyone should be grunge dancing or something. A grungy sleezy environment preparing our children for the gutter. Your profile name and use of foul language betrays you for what you are. Lowlife scum.  (Apr 30, 2014 | post #16)

To you I have a couple of questions. "I wore jeans to the funeral of one of the people I respected most in my life..they weren't skinny jeans , or red. It wouldn't have mattered though..He wouldn't have cared." So why did you go if he would not have cared? Or did you mean that because of the way of life he led he would not have cared that you wore jeans to his funeral? If that is so I bet a lot of people that attended his funeral wore jeans. See where I am going with this? I bet that his wife, significant other or other good friends would not have cared that you wore jeans to this man's funeral because of the kind of man he was. The kind of life he had. The kind of tradition that he fostered. The rules that he had for life. Wow, we are back to the point I was making. You respected and followed this persons tradition and rules of life. You even state "one of the people I respected most in my life". ****Respect is a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual qualities of the one respected (e.g., "I have great respect for her judgment"). It can also be conduct in accord with a specific ethic of respect. Rude conduct is usually considered to indicate a lack of respect, disrespect, whereas actions that honor somebody or something indicate respect. Specific ethics of respect are of fundamental importance to various cultures. Respect for tradition and legitimate authority is identified by Jonathan Haidt, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, as one of five fundamental moral values shared to a greater or lesser degree by different societies and individuals. **** (http://en.wikiped ia.org/wiki/Respec t) This young lady that we are speaking about disrespected her set of friends traditions and the expectations they had for her. Do you see my point at all?  (Apr 29, 2014 | post #13)

So to get the attention away from you and your uncaring disrespectful attitude for anyone else's rights to have an event with , GASP, rules and decorum, you accuse me of being a racist? Funny how idiot's often throw in the race card whenever they try to defend stupid ideas. Gets the attention off of the ignorant idea trying to be defended. SAD! As far as we people that respect tradition and actually were raised with a set of standards you state that we will be service employees to her? Did you actually see the interview? I very much doubt anyone will be serving her anytime soon or in the future. With the kind of attitude she has I also doubt that she will have a good job or successful business. Because guess what? Most people in the world expect a certain type of respect and a sense of decorum with the people they do business with. You try to use Bill Gates as an example? Please. Do you honestly think he operates in a rule-less environment and that he does not expect his set of morays and traditions to be followed? The point is that if your ignore a set of rules that have been established and are expected to be followed then you will not reap the benefits of the society that sets the rules. Here is a perfect example of that is how ignorant you are. It is easy for me to sit here and pick apart your spelling errors. condem is spelled: condemn ; sucoming is spelled succumbing. What kind of job do you have where you are not even required to run spell-check? Or is it that spelling has rules and traditions? And as far as condemning the young lady for not spending thousands of dollars. Not only can you not spell, but you can not read. We only said that she was disrespecting the kids that did prepare and knew the rules. I have in the past helped buy a young lady a prom dress to go to the prom. She was not a relative but a nice young lady that wished to go to the prom and could not afford the dress. I did that because I knew that she wanted so badly to go and she knew what was expected of her. And a young lady does not necessarily have to spend a lot of money or have a benefactor like I was. I know for a fact that Cherryville High School will help a young lady that can not afford a proper dress to acquire one. And finally. Yes I do know you. So it is easy to judge you by your own words. You are the ignorant, disrespectful gross person that tries to unsuccessfully defend another ignorant, disrespectful, gross young lady that was raised by an ignorant, disrespectful gross mother. Many of you will say that is mean. I do not think so. I am defending a way of life and tradition that every American should know. So, Get a life!  (Apr 29, 2014 | post #12)

I know you are trying to be funny but I hope that you do not really believe that. I hope that our traditions and way of life are not continually eroded by lackadaisical attitudes that seem to be persuasive in American society lately. There are so many people that are just plain rude and the worst part is a lot of them seem clueless to it. Recently I was at a medical clinic and the young lady in front of me was at the desk. Her cell phone rang and she answered it as the receptionist was trying to help her. The girl lacked any sense of decorum. Drivers on the road will make gestures and become extremely aggressive at the slightest perceived slight. People will crowd on to an elevator without letting people get off first. There are numerous example of rudeness everyday if you watch. It is a matter of the individual rights of people impeding on the rights of the group as a whole as those individuals insist on trampling on the rights of groups that have a common set of wants and traditions. Our society already has too much erosion to politeness and respect to allow one individual to disrespect an entire prom full of kids the know how to act and dress.  (Apr 29, 2014 | post #8)

I bet when your kids graduate from collage you are the type of parent that screams and makes an ass of themselves and embarrasses the experience for everyone else. Am I right? Or is it ok to scream "fire" in a crowded movie theater? When do you stop? When does the kids attire embarrasses and ruins the experience for everyone else that understands decorum? Tradition is not an outdated concept. Social functions have rules and morays that make them what they are. You are correct it is the 21st century but that does not mean that the rules are thrown out the window. According to your conception everything is ok. Rape, murder, stealing, everything. If my kid spends time and money dressing up and attending a function that demands a certain amount of respect I would not want them to have to put up with a kid that throws on a pair of skinny jeans and expects everyone to put up with her disrespect to the function. And I am sorry if you are wearing jeans to a funeral you might as well spit at the coffin. Get a life and I mean really, "Get A Life" and respect tradition and other people. Otherwise you will find life difficult because some people understand what respect is, which you obviously do not. You would not be welcome to any of my functions ever again if you showed such disrespect. Maybe someday you will grow up if enough times you are snubbed for not respecting them or their traditions. What a gross person you must be.  (Apr 28, 2014 | post #5)

Lefty not sure if I can agree. Social norms should have taught this kid what is acceptable attire for a prom. Tight pants and a shirt are not acceptable attire in anyone's book. The defense is that there is no written dress code for the prom in the student handbook. I am sorry but it should have been very obvious to everyone that was going to the prom what is acceptable. There should never have been a need to "spell it out". The teacher did exactly what any administrator should do in that situation. After all would you wear jeans to a funeral? Would you wear cutoffs to a church service? These are social norms that every parent and any kid over the age of 12 should have been taught while growing up.  (Apr 27, 2014 | post #2)

Lincolnton man, 70, shot by cop

Oooooooo! Another intelligent reply from the unwashed masses. You do sound so witty with your reply. I envy the obvious admiration by your fellow man. I mean who wouldn't? You are such a man. Everyone around you must look up to you as you utter obscenities through tobacco stained precancerous lips. What makes me an "egg sucking liberal or queer" ? Or is it when you get on an elevator and a good looking man gets on with you and smiles you get nervous? And "I'd shot Alfred's ass in making an arrest." Tell me what does that statement have to do with this situation? And who the heck is "Madman" ? I suggest that before you start typing on the greasy keys of your keyboard that you sharpen your mind slightly and at least watch the dashcam video of this incident. The police officer was very upset and even cried when he shot the old man as the old man reached into the bed of the truck to retrieve his cane so he could hobble to the officer. Drinking and typing on the internet should always be discouraged.  (Apr 1, 2014 | post #20)

NC Police Seek Man Who Sucked Toes at Wal-Mart

I am sort of amazed that this guy was able to talk himself close enough to this woman to suck her toes in the first place. What woman would let a man that close?  (Mar 25, 2014 | post #44)

Recession + crooked back room politics = discovery. Beware out there if you are stealing from government coffers. With no fat to hide you it is easier to be found out. Cherryville discovered that.  (Mar 25, 2014 | post #1)

Notice that the picture showing Hoyle and her friends that she is the only one of the young ladies NOT wearing glasses. Yep, her friends were there to support her but by God they were not going to be recognized easily.
