Too hot for homecoming
Teenage girls in Mesquite, Texas are raising hell after high school administrators turned them away from Saturday's homecoming dance -- all because they weren't dressed primly enough. According to reports, as many as 50 female students were banned because they showed up with too much leg or cleavage on display.
Now, there is certainly an element of teenage melodrama here. The Dallas Morning News, for instance, describes how one mother received such a hysterical call from her daughter that she assumed she had been in a car accident: "I could hear screaming and crying. My husband kept saying, 'Baby girl, calm down,' over and over." But, take look at some of the mild dresses that were deemed inappropriate (see the image above), and it's hard not to agree with 15-year-old Ebony: "It was called a Red Carpet Affair, but it was an unfair affair." (God I love teenage sass.).............
Mesquite High girls' dance dresses turn the wrong heads
Alexis Sias was first told she couldn't enter the Mesquite High School homecoming dance Saturday night because her dress was too short. A second administrator finally agreed it met the dance dress code. Ebony Ohen was told her dress was too short.
