She Wasn’t Allowed In The Ball Because Her Dress Was Too Revealing

Prom is supposed to be a magical time before kids have their dreams crushed by college life. But recently the dresses that girls choose have been getting more and more criticism from teachers who don’t seem to realize that kids now have access to the internet, the infinite amount of porn that comes with it, and that seeing an ankle probably isn’t going to turn them into a bunch of sex-crazed animals.

And now Amy Steverson, a Maryville High student, is taking to Facebook to claim that she was almost kicked out of her prom for having the audacity to wear this…

Tiffani Taylor, a mother of one of Steverson’s friends, took to Facebook to say that Steverson was denied entry when she first tried to enter because it was “too revealing”:

“This is Bronte’s friend, Amy.

Last Friday night was her senior prom. She spent time looking for the perfect dress, got her hair done and was meticulous in putting her make up on. It’s an exciting time! She proudly had her pictures made, and why wouldn’t she? She looks like a princess!

Arriving at the prom, she was stopped at the door. She would not be allowed in because her dress was “too revealing”. After spending some time in the restroom crying, she was told she could go in if she wore the vice principal’s tux jacket, which mind you, did not cover her chest. She was told by a teacher repeatedly “Us big girls gotta cover up”.

This young girl was SHAMED for having breasts. Her excitement during this memorable time of her life turned into embarrassment at the hands of adults who are supposed to be leading her.

SHAME on YOU, Maryville. I think you look amazing, Amy.

“Us big girls gotta cover up,” may be the cringiest response I’ve ever heard. Also, who in the right mind thinks that a teenager would want to spend her prom night in a stinky old suit jacket that’s probably older than she is?

Taylor’s post quickly acquired more than 20,000 shares and hundreds of comments from people who were largely supportive of Steverson.
