Twerking...

^^Yeah, it's pretty bad! These kids were dumb to break school rules to make this horrible video.

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 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.)

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.

When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

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.

Students also may face being banned from prom, commencement and other school activities as part of the overall suspension, ABC 10 also reported.

Jack Brandais, a San Diego Unified School District spokesman, would not comment on the suspension, citing the federal Family Educational Rights Privacy Act.
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.

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?

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.
