Just heard from one of my daughter’s friends (13 years old) that her friends school in Nambour, Queensland is getting ready for a dance/formal night. Interesting way that they get the kids to pick dance partners. The girls stand against the wall and the boys pick which one they want to take to the dance! Then the girls “have to” go with that boy. Just like picking a new mobile phone I guess – girls as commodities, I wonder if they dictate what colour the girls come in. Errr, and here we are in 2011! Come on, parents this is not acceptable!
