Twerking is definitely a sexualized and objectifying dance. Watch a REAL twerking video and you'll see. Does it have cultural ties to dances from Africa? Sure, but let's not play here. These days it's more culturally relevant to the strip club and dirty rap lyrics. Twerking has never been popular in the mainstream, until trap music glorifying strip club culture reached suburbia. Just sayin.
I agree.
This strip club culture has had a huge impact on music (Af American) and fashion, and these influences are being normalized on tv.

I don't think girls should aspire to or glamorize it and I'm glad the school isn't taking it lightly. (Tho I don't agree w/ the punishment.)
I agree, I'm not a fan of glamorizing this strip club culture and further objectification of women and especially girls but the punishment is way too harsh.
I agree to a certain extent, the punishment does seem harsh. However, one should never break a rule and just expect minimal punishment. They broke the school's rules and they have to be punished. They could be attending the prom and graduation if they used better judgment.

I don't think it should be minimal either, but not what they got. Besides expulsion, it's the max punishment. Graduation is a big deal.

I agree. They've basically negated four years of high school because of one bad choice. What would have happened to them if they were juniors?

While twerking may have roots in African dance, you cannot tell me that these kids had that in mind when they were doing it. The guy leering at them the whole time was a pretty good indication of that. Context is everything. That's why I think turning this into a teaching moment about the sexual objectification of women would be a better "punishment." I also think a lesson about how there are appropriate and inappropriate times for the same behavior.

I took the no graduation part to mean that the couldn't attend the ceremony. I seriously doubt that they aren't going to give them their high school diploma.

While it may sting a little not to be able to wear your cap & gown and walk across the stage, at the end of the day, they'll still graduate. As long as they don't mention it in their college essays or future job interviews, I don't see it having any lasting negative impact.

Right. Not the worst thing in the world. In certain cases, tho, in any given group of students, you never know who might have been the first in their families to cross a stage, and that can be an inspirational thing, for themselves, their parents and younger siblings. I just don't like the punishment bc it misses the teachable moment and some of these girls probably are that clueless. And the pimp...i mean, john, I mean customer, I mean photographer? He needs his ass handed to him, too. Why was he making this video?

Not being able to walk in your hs graduation is a big ass deal. Way bigger than shaking your ass at school and taping it. Sounds like a taliban like punshiment. I guess I'm just more liberal on these things. I don't believe what they did was that bad.

My parents made me go to my hs graduation; if I could have missed it, I would have. I was so "over it" by then. LOL

I don't think what they did was "bad" but rather idiotic and hs is where you go to learn, so I think the school administrators were remiss.

I'm all for feminism and I absolutely despise slut shaming (God, it made me so mad when I read comments on the video saying things like "My daughter has respect for herself. She wouldn't do that."), but to skip class to do a provocative dance on school grounds using school equipment while wearing the school uniform (Are they wearing the uniform? Someone in the comments said they were. I wasn't able to watch the actual video ) is basically begging the school to severely punish you. It's like screaming "HEY! I don't want to go to prom or walk at my graduation! I want to be suspended! Pick me! Pick me!" I agree with their punishment except for maybe banning them from walking at their graduation. That's a bit much.

LOL, no and I don't even know that I am but on some things. People around me point it out a lot since I am around a lot of conservative people in general. Probably because I'm the south. People just look at me like I'm crazy sometimes. O well.
