    If that were my daughter... I might try to get it removed as well... but making a big thing of it...advertises it.

    "Put my daughter's...... on YouTube, PLEASE!"

    ***

    Ok, you decide not to wear panties and you wear a mini skirt (that's some sort of dumb). But when you DO go "commando" isn't it ALWAYS on your mind?

    And then someone asks you to have a picture taken and you sit down? Don't you think...No, I'll stand in the back, thank you.

    And has she never heard of pantied-pantyhose? No panty lines-but covered up?

    To me...commndo is so uncomfortable...and so obsessive.

    And, yeah, when you are on CNN with your daughter talking about her..... showing, wouldn't you have your daughter wear long pants. Or at least wear shorts longer than her top...AND SIT WITH HER LEGS TOGETHER???

    You know... with this sort-of stupid...my sympathies start to wane.

    So I DID see the picture online somewhere... It was kind of questionable, but I agree that it is a shadow.

    They also found pics from the girl's myspace - a bunch of underage drinking and smoking up, with her mom in the background.

    Ummmm....I'm not sure it would really matter how long the skirt was, at least for me and my daughters.:eek:

    We had a school near here whose yearbook featured a picture of several boys showing 'The Shocker'- a sexual hand gesture. The administration wanted to pull the yearbooks, but the parents actually tried to fight it! They said 'Let us decide what's offensive!' They knew what this gesture meant, and were fine with it!

    Wow I just went to wiki to see what 'the shocker' was as I have never heard of it. That's a shame that was allowed in the yearbook and the parents approved? Sad, disgusting world we live in.

    I am a yearbook advisor and this is exactly why I've stepped down. No one goes to a soccer game (at least not in Canada) and hounds every decision a coach makes, but yearbook advisors get hassled non-stop. It is impossible to catch every detail. I would have to increase the size of the photo to about 400% to have a chance of seeing this - I can guarantee you no yearbook advisor is looking at every skirt. As for hand gestures, I spent hours and hours cutting hand gestures, acroynms in kids grad write ups, etc. Then Jostens goes through the whole book. I know we still miss stuff. The only way to have a perfectly "clean" yearbook is to just stop having yearbooks.

    And my guess is the size of the photo in the story is at least 500% bigger than the picture in the yearbook. Unless this is rich schools are us there is no way a team photo would be that big.

    for our seniors last year, the kids were able to put a quote, their nick name, and their friends names or something like that. The principal couldn't figure out why so many kids were friends with Mary Jane since there wasn't anyone named Mary Jane at our school.:dizzy:

    I swear I probably cut 50% of what was written in the yearbook write ups. Some kids ended up with about 2 words in their grad write up.

    What makes me laugh is that in my high school days (over 25 years ago), LOTS of girls did this on purpose-especially for yearbook photos! (not me though-too much of a prude)
