    School suspends boy for wearing dress to his prom; charged with disorderly conduct

    http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cg...type=printable

    (05-11) 19:56 PDT Lake Geneva, Wis. (AP) --

    A high school senior who thought it would be funny to wear a dress to his prom was ticketed $249 for disorderly conduct, suspended for three days and banned from his last track meet.

    School district administrator Jim Gottinger said the discipline was for more than just the dress, noting Kerry Lofy, 18, was dancing in a sexually provocative manner at the prom, according to a police report.

    Lofy doubts that was the real reason he was disciplined Monday.

    "The whole night was that kind of dancing. They can't single me out and say, 'Oh it was you, it was only you,'" he said. "I think it's over the dress."

    Lofy said Lake Geneva Badger High had no problem letting him go to Saturday's prom with another male, but that school officials drew the line at his dress.

    "I thought it would be more appropriate for there to be one person dressed like a girl and a person dressed like a guy, than for there to be two guys to go," said Lofy, a member of the school's track, ski, powerlifting and soccer teams.

    Also, he thought people would find it funny to see a 6-foot, 185-pound male in a black, stretchy, spaghetti-strap dress.

    When Lofy showed up in the dress, a blond wig, open-toed platform sandals, blue earrings and a necklace, teachers turned him away. He said he showed up later with a tan-and-black plaid leisure suit over the dress, went inside and whipped off the suit during a dance-off. A security guard escorted him out, he said.

    Lofy said when he went to school Monday, the school liaison police officer issued the disorderly conduct ticket.

    "They thought I was mocking the school," he said.

    Blue earrings with a black dress? Platform sandals for a formal dance? He needed a visit from the fashion police.

    It wasn't like it was a Stingray or anything.

    I can confirm this.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I saw this on the news this morning. I thought it was pretty funny! The kid was just having fun!! I think they were to hard on him.

    When I was a freshman we had a couple go to the prom and they both wore a tux. They were considered "cool"

    Exactly. It's not how I'd want to remember my prom..."which one is you DAD?"
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
