Banning single girls from the prom?! Have you not SEEN 'Pretty in Pink'?

Posted on

Prettyinpink_lMay I not admire you today, the interim principal of an all-girls Staten Island high school who just made the junior prom for couples only. Check out the video news report here. The principal would not comment on why she’s decided that dateless girls are better off staying at home. I’d love to know what kind of message she’s trying to send. Because I’m hearing that unless you have a man, or a “best gay” (shout-out to Mark, my junior prom date!), you don’t deserve to have fun. 
Discuss.*

*Anything you say can, and probably will, be used in an ABC Family original movie. I know I’d greenlight one, and I’d lift Molly Ringwald’s “I just want them to know that they didn’t break me” line directly from Pretty in Pink.)
