Tricks or Treats: Porn Star Remark by Principle Insights Father’s Outrage

12 Nov

Apparently sending your 15 year-old to school daughter dressed in a sexy pirate costume[2] is a bad idea. Who would have thought? Apparently not Steven Werner in Michigan.

“A Michigan father who says his 15-year-old daughter’s school Halloween costume was unjustly criticized for resembling a ‘porn star’ by her principal is accusing the woman of bullying.”[1]

His daughter wore the below costume to school and was called in by the principal, Janet Jones, due to it not being appropriate for school. Many would agree something like this needs to stay at home. If a parent wants to let their daughter go out wearing this, more power to them but do it in private, not in school.

However, that’s where things take a turn for the worse for the school principal. She makes the comment to the teen her outfit looks like a “porn star”. After asking the teen if she knows what a porn star is, the teen replies she supposedly does not. Ms. Jones then gives a lesson on what porn is and what porn stars do for a living.

When the teen’s father finds out he is furious not only at what the principal did but her lack of remorse for her actions. To say this is bullying is a bit of a stretch and merely a clear publicity play on a hot button topic.

Quite frankly both are wrong. The father should have never allowed his daughter to go to school in the very adult costume. However, the principle should have never told the teen she looked like a porn star, even if she did, or give any explanation of porn. That is a conversation for a parent to have with their child when they feel it appropriate.

Both parties need to sit down, apologize to each other where appropriate and put an end to the whole issue. Of course this is modern day America, where self imposed blame is as rare as a true virgin bride. So we should hold our breath for the clearly right outcome.
