During this Valentine's Day season, many schools take the opportunity to host a dance for daughters and fathers. However, one school is now making national news after an incident happened at their dance.
"On Feb. 9, Jennifer Meade and her family paid a $30 ticket fee and walked into the Carter Community Building (CCBA) in Lebanon with no issue, though their time at the soiree was abruptly cut short. According to Meade, organizers asked her and her 5-year-old son to leave the event after just 20 minutes, as per the Valley News," wrote Fox.
Jennifer cited fluidity of genders in today's society for her reasoning behind not wanting to leave. The school officials have been very forthcoming about the incident and claimed they simply asked her to hang out in a game room downstairs and not to actually leave the event.
“It’s not like anyone was uncomfortable that I was there,” Meade said of the unhappy ending to the evening. “I wasn’t taking away from anyone’s experience being there. I don’t understand why I have to be a dad to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my kids. In this day and age, it’s not like your gender should define what type of parent you really are,” she added.
Officials claimed they have hosted the event for the past 20 years. They also said that mothers are invited to take pictures but are usually asked to wait downstairs. They also noted that they throw a mother-daughter dance in the spring to make sure to include everyone.
