Dad Upset That Daughter Got Porn Lesson From Principal (VIDEO)

sexy pirateWhen it comes to our kids, we parents can be a delusional bunch. We hate it when other people criticize our kids. This certainly seems to be the case of the Michigan dad protesting the principal who told his daughter she looked like a "porn star" when she came to school in a sexy pirate Halloween costume.

Of course, no parent wants a school official to say such an offensive thing to a child. But how many of those parents would have actually let their 15-year-old head to class in that skimpy get-up?

Steve Werner saw nothing wrong with the look. School principal Janet Jones didn't agree. As soon as the girl entered the school, she was called into the office. According to Werner,

She said to my daughter, "Honey, you look like a porn star." My daughter said, "What do you mean a porn star?" She goes, "You know, a porn star. You know what those people do?" My daughter said "no." So she elaborated to my daughter what a porn star was and what they do for a living.

She wasn't asked to leave but told to turn the bows on her stockings around because those made the outfit look more scandalous. After hearing about the exchange, he called Jones to complain. "She did admit to everything," he said. "She did say that all men watch porn and it's a fact of life and I should get real." That's when this dad really got fired up. He created a billboard that read, "Mrs. Jones taught my daughter about PORN" and "All men watch porn," plastered it to the side of a moving truck, and has been driving it around. 

"I wanted people to be aware about what was going on as far as the parents to see if we could get more advocates for situations like this," Werner said. "This is a form of bullying as far as I'm concerned and us as parents need to be more apt as to what bullying is and help the students out."

Well, since he started his crusade, things have certainly gotten worse for his daughter. Peers are sending her threats and nasty barbs via Facebook. And still this dad blames the principal for that: "They all believe Mrs. Jones is pure and perfect and she can't do nothing wrong. The principal admitting to the fault of what she did wrong was an admittance of guilt. If you're guilty then you need to apologize." He doesn't realize his own part in making this entire situation worse for his child. She must be mortified. As if high school wasn't hard enough!

    sooooo many things wrong here: 1) that costume hardly seems appropriate for school. 2) the principal's comment was out of line - not her chastising the girl for its skimpyness, mind you - but rather, her choice of words and the "lesson" she gave with it. 3) the dad strikes me as the type who has to have the last say, who won't go away quietly, whether the situation warrants it or not.

    it should be simple: the principal apologizes to the student for the comments. the parent apologizes to the principal for acting like a baboon. the teenager learns to keep the skimpy outfits for after school hours. the end.

    Well the students should go to school in appropriate attire regardless of Halloween and the principal should just said her costume was a little risque instead of porn star.  Dad's plan backfire and caused more embarrassment to his daughter instead of addressing the issue with the school board in private.

    That outfit was totally wrong to wear to school and seriously what 15 year old doesn't know what porn is.  Stupid parent.

    I'm a fan of dressing like a slut, but I'm an adult. A 15 year old kid should not be showing that much skin at school unless there is a damn heat wave.

    I think we can all agree the father is a mental case. Now, do we have any evidence the principal said any of the things he accused her of saying? or what the context of the conversation was? Or are we going to lambast her on the word of a man who is clearly missing more than a few marbles.

    I'm glad the principal taught this girl what the word 'porn star' means- now she'll know and hopefully be embarrassed to be associated with such a term. If she REALLY didn't know before the age of 15- then there was a bigger issue regarding the fact that she hasn't been properly taught the difference between proper school attire and trash. This is her father's fault 100%.

    While wearing the outfit was a bad choice, there were better alternatives: 1) call the parents to bring a change of clothes.  2) dad, don't overreact.  3) pull the dress code card.

    Makes me glad I dressed as a zombie in high school for Halloween.  I only used a bit of tempera paint on my chin, and wore shredded clothing (flannel shirt and jeans).  Yet Mom got mad that I wasn't "being cute" like a girl should be!

    Erika- do you think copying a news story word for word is worthy of a "by line"? I think it is plagerism.

    This dad is going to have his hands full in the next two years with a slut for daughter and he his head up his ass about who she really is.
