Girl Wears Dress To School Dance - She's Shocked By Administrator's Disturbing Comments

A young, seventh-grade student, named Ari Waters, was recently left humiliated and shamed after school officials indicated she looked overly sexual, telling her to cover up at her school’s disco at Mount Orab Middle School. Ari had planned the perfect outfit for her school’s disco, hoping to impress her friends with a stunning and flattering yellow dress: “The yellow dress was just right for me. It fit me perfectly.” However, Ari’s night was ruined when a teacher told her to cover her arms, forcing her to put a coat over the top of her sleeveless dress.

Ari was embarrassed and did not feel as though she could relax with her friends, resulting in a call to her mother in order to pick her up. Ari’s mother, Gina Waters, was appalled when she heard that a teacher considered her daughter's dress inappropriate, and demanded an explanation from the school.

The vice principal of Mount Orab Middle School told Ms. Waters that Ari’s arms “are sexual objects”, leaving Ms. Waters initially shocked and then furious over the ‘sexualization’ of her young daughter. Ms. Waters believed that the comment implied that seventh-grade boys could not control themselves if a girl’s arms were bare, a sentiment as ridiculous as it sounds.

Ari, who was extremely upset after the incident, revealed that she “felt dirty and just really down and upset that she said that because through the whole night, my friends were telling me, ‘Oh your dress looks beautiful. You look gorgeous today.”

Mt. Orab Middle School has also released a statement regarding the matter, stating “Mt. Orab Middle School has an adopted dress code that we require all students to abide by for school functions…Several weeks before the dance at Mt. Orab Middle School, the students were explicitly told that the dress code should be adhered to.”

Luckily, Ms. Waters has reiterated her initial conviction, stating that “They’re kids. They’re not sexual objects. They’re not sexual beings. That word should never have been used and it should never have been associated with an arm, with a limb.”
