In a reversal of most inappropriate prom attire stories, Aniya Wolf wore an outfit to her Catholic school's prom that was deemed too modest. As a result, she was removed from the most overrated of teen experiences, ABC27 reported.
The Bishop McDevitt school in Pennsylvania—where Wolf has worn shirts and pants for years as part of a required uniform—decided at the last minute that Wolf's carefully-chosen tux didn't conform to the dress code, even though her mother had checked the school's requirements beforehand for this very reason.
Wolf's mom Carolyn told ABC27 that she received an email about the tuxedo shortly before prom. "I told them that I had read the dress code that was given to the students and I didn’t think that it precluded her from wearing a suit."
Wolf was like, "Whatever, this outfit is lit and I'm going to prom."
Alas, Wolf—who is an out lesbian and describes herself as masculine—wasn't allowed in. The school was serious enough about their dress code that the principal took Wolf by the arm and threatened to call the cops if she didn't leave. At that point, the teenager left to go home and write about the incident on Facebook.
Sadly, I was not admitted into the Prom . I was forced to leave. The principal threatened she would get the cops. What an experience. Lol they can't take my pride.
In her interview with ABC27, Wolf delicately pointed out the chosen attire of other young ladies.
“You know, a lot of girls’ dresses, I mean I’m not saying that all of them are this way, but they do show a lot of skin. I think I’m dressed pretty modestly," Wolf said. “I think my experience shouldn’t be any different than anyone else’s because of something I was born with."
Wolf's fellow students didn't give a crap that Wolf wanted to wear a suit, and have supported her throughout this prom-mare.
Wolf, in a tweet that proves her tastefulness goes beyond her choice in clothes, responded kindly to the reaction from students.
Now that Wolf's story is getting out there, more people are getting on the pro-tux train and pointing out how great she looked.
Raised emoji hands pretty much sum up Wolf's prom look.
