Ah, prom season—a memorable time of hair spray and daughters fighting with their moms over which shoes go best with their dresses. But for Amy Steverson, her reminisces of the over-rated high school event will be filled with body-shaming, because that was the theme of prom for this high school senior. According to Cosmopolitan, the Maryville High student wore a kickass dress to prom that her school didn't approve of because their standards make no sense.
Steverson was first denied entry because of her "revealing" dress. If you're baffled at what seems revealing about this tasteful dress, Tiffani Taylor, a mother of one of Steverson's friends, wrote a Facebook post elucidating that the school felt there was too much cleavage going on. Only after being shamed for her body and tossing on her Vice Principal's tux jacket (which is an added layer of "WTF" to this story) was the girl allowed into prom. Even then, Steverson continued to be punished for her size, as Taylor painfully explained.
"Us big girls gotta cover up."
The teacher's attempt to act all familiar with Steverson regarding her body shape is cringe-worthy and outdated, especially given that Steverson was covered up.
