Prom Draft? Ridiculous.

You've all heard of the "prom-posal" by now, when guys do over-the-top invites to ask girls to the prom. Well, some students at a California high school are doing the opposite of that ... and it's downright sexist.The boys over at Corona Del Mar High School have a longstanding tradition of picking their prom dates through an NFL-style draft. Yep, the guys make their "picks" from a pool of potential dates. They even encourage the female "free agents" to dress to impress in the hopes of getting a prom date.Though the draft isn't affiliated with the school in any way, the principal has finally had enough and is trying to shut this practice down, claiming that it objectifies women. But one female student begs to differ: “I am part of the draft and am friends with many girls in the draft and yes, in some instances girls can be picked by appearance. It is all just a fun way to decide who you will be going to prom with. It is not meant to harm those who are picked and I do not believe that it does. It is not, was never, and will never ever be used to objectify the girls at our school.” WOW. (OC Register)
