    So a girl that with a boy hair cut tries to tell girls that it wrong to act like a real lady and boys not to act like real men.
    Prom was a formal dance. Then era and some people opinion were used in judgement. Right or wrong
    Its still a formal dance. But people like you don't like when real boys and girls dress proper. You take offense to it. Get over it.

    Oh wait a minute, are you telling me that stuff before the 1960s was segregated and racist? Gee, I wouldn't have guessed. Also, there is nothing wrong with a Prom having social, behavioral and beauty standards, since it's meant to be a higher class dance. And about that "good girl" poster: I think we have all observed the modern culture when it comes to dressing. Many girls like showing a lot of skin. Don't deny it, if you've gone to high school in recent years, you know what I'm talking about. Since as mentioned before, Prom is meant to be a mature and classy dance, so naturally the school wouldn't want you to show up wearing something overly revealing. But oh wait, dress codes are sexist because they don't allow girls to wear anything. Oops I forgot.

    Until chapter 5 (and some signs of misogyny and racism) I don't see any wrong and evil thing at proms in history. That's just the way things were back then. I understand that at after the 60's those things shouldn't be happening because of the change of society.
    But I think it's more an issue about the culture, not the party. I'm mexican and been living in Mexico my whole life and when I was a teen never had those "elitist", racism or misogyny issues. The dress code was just "go fancy". Nothing complicated or forced.
