A schoolgirl who refrained from wearing any pantsu for her school yearbook photos, and was subsequently photographed in intimate detail sat immodestly in the front row, has caused consternation after it was revealed that the school printed thousands of copies of her indecent exposure and apparently did not bother recalling them.
The Florida school, Sickles High School, printed and distributed the yearbook normally, but soon after hundreds of students and parents had received it, they received reports of a dreadful mistake.
One female student had opted to attend the photography wearing a short skirt and no underwear, “because she didn’t want her panty lines to show”, but apparently the consequences of this decision eluded her when she sat in the front row of the class (or in this case, pottery club), with her exposure only being noticed by fellow students upon receiving the print:
She maintains resolutely that no exhibitionistic element motivated her act: “Absolutely not. It is ridiculously embarrassing.”
The girl apparently could not muster the courage to return to school in the face of her embarrassment:
“I started crying, I was freaking out and I didn’t know what to do. This is my junior year, it’s so important. I didn’t think I could go back to school knowing that everyone knew and had seen the picture.”
Her understanding mother was unwilling to force her back, so a transfer may be in the offing.
Her mother was not satisfied at the response of the school, and in particular the principal:
“He said he doesn’t want to exploit my daughter and here he is passing out yearbooks with her picture still in it and continuing to pass out pictures! It’s like don’t you get it?”
Curiously, the district school board denies there is anything amiss at all: “We don’t believe there is exposure in the yearbook…. It is a shadow.” It is not clear what they make of the girl’s admission to her fashion conscious pantsu-lessness.
Oddly, there is no talk of prosecuting the school or teenager concerned for this brazen publication of child pornography…
