A high school senior from Washington says she was left embarrassed and humiliated after being denied entry to her senior prom because her breasts are too big.
Brittany Minder of Silverdale was excited to show off her new strapless dress, but was prohibited from entering the dance because school officials felt she was showing too much cleavage.
“In my opinion, I feel that it is because I’m bigger chested and there is more cleavage that you can see, and there’s nothing I could really do about that,” Brittany told KOMO News.
Central Kitsap High School’s dress code does allow strapless dresses, but only if the cleavage is covered.
Brittany’s dad, however, says it is near impossible for his daughter to fully cover any decolletage. “A girl like Brittany should not have to go to a dance in a burlap sack because she’s large busted,” he said.
Added Brittany’s mother: “All women are not created equal, and you can not compare a golf ball to a grapefruit. It ain’t gonna happen.”
The teen eventually agreed to obscure her bosom with a shawl and was allowed in. But it just wasn’t the same, and she left after about an hour.
“I felt self-conscious and they took the magic out of the night,” Brittany said. “It was tough being there after all that happened. I didn’t feel comfortable. I already had a blow to my self-esteem. I didn’t really want to be there anymore.”
@Oakshades sent me this story yesterday when it was “breaking news” and told me to blog about it. I said fuck no, because it’s retarded and no one would care. Sure enough it’s been on the news and every website since then. When I saw it again being discussed on the news this morning, I decided to share a few thoughts.
#1 – Stop saying she got kicked out for big tits.
It keeps being reported as: “Teen Prohibited from Attending Prom Because Her Breasts Are Too Big”. That’s not what the fuck happened. She got kicked out because she SHOWED too much breast, not because they are large. Stop saying that shit, it’s 100% different. Getting kicked out for simply having big breasts is illegal, getting kicked out for showing too much is totally legal in school.
Which brings me to my next point…
#2 – This is a prime example of inequality. But not the way you think.
Look, I’m all for equality. If you look at any of my politically charged blogs or any of my POVs you would see that the main issues I confront are the unfair inequalities in this world. I think when it comes to obesity and how we treat certain people it is down right disgusting as a society and extremely wrong.
BUT. The point of equality is to treat people EQUAL. Negatively or positively, it must be equal. Just like how you can’t be treated differently in a negative way because you are obese means you don’t get special privileges as well.
I can think of AT LEAST 5-10 skinny, small-breasted, girls that got kicked out of my proms for wearing outrageous shit or outfits deemed to scandalous by the school. I would say with the exception of one or two of them that 100% deserved to be kicked out for their crazy ass outfit, the majority were not that bad. I thought a few of them were unfairly kicked out and their outfit wasn’t a big deal.
You know what happened next? Nothing. No news story. No press. No public outrage. The chicks either changed their shit or said fuck prom. Girls get kicked out of prom and school (especially Halloween) all the fucking time for controversial or scandalous outfits. This shit happens every year! It has nothing to do with breast or body size. Most of these girls were skinny and small breasted. You can’t go crying about injustices towards obesity when this shit happens to skinny/small breasted girls in every school in the country, every fucking year.
Doing so would be promoting inequality and thus saying that bigger girls should be treated special. It happens every fucking year to girls of all different shapes and titty sizes. It’s called equality son. Shame on her fucking parents for going with this as well.
#3 – The school did nothing illegal, or unjust, but did they break an unwritten rule of our society?
Like I said, there is nothing illegal or unjust about this, but they did potentially break an unwritten rule of our society? That is: the bigger you are, the more breast you can show.
I see this shit walking down the street of NYC every day. A big girl with her breasts popping out of the top. You can just see the seams of her shirt holding on for dear life. Some of it is choice, but for others, like the parents said, it’s just what a big breasted girl is going to look like. There’s not much you can do about it. Either way, nobody freaks out or starts some big uproar when you see it. You just keep on, keeping on. Because everyone knows the female code of the streets is the bigger you are, the more breast you can show, and everyone else can’t say shit about it.
