    I didn`t read it, but I grinded at my prom. I then lost my virginity that night.
    Grinding is good.

    Same thing, different generation. In the 50`s it was listening to Rock and Roll, in the 80`s they liked to ban classic books, today it`s grinding.

    When today`s kids grow up, they`ll see their own children doing something they find objectionable and continue the cycle.

    While grinding is fun, it`s not always appropriate. If these kids aren`t allowed to fail, how will they learn? Just let the chaperones watch the dance and single out the kids being inappropriate. A little embarassment from a teacher could go a long way for the kids to learn.

    I hate "grinding", seriously get a damn room. It is probably the least romantic thing to ever do. "Hey hot stuff, let`s be really animalistic and hunch over each other while I rub my semi-hard on all over your ass for 4 hours!" I`ve never done it, but guys wouldn`t you have killer blue balls after!? =P I just don`t see the point. There`s dancing and then there is sex.

    They didn`t allow grinding and stuff in my middle schools, either. I think it`s a good thing. Grinding is a stupid way to dance. One of the few school dances I went to, everyone was dancing that way. Everyone. It was basically a mob of tribadism on the dance floor.
    I mean, it wouldn`t be so annoying if that`s not ALL they did. No matter what the beat of the music, no matter what the song, they never changed their style. I mean, f-ck, dancing needs variety, you monotonous freaks!

    End rant...

    Eh, our school has been pretty cool about how dancing and dress code towards dances go. And I hope I am not jinxing that by saying that.

    At the last dance, the DJ jokingly just said that he was going to start playing country songs if we didn`t tone it down. And when people didn`t listen, he played this rednecky country song, and everyone got the point, toned it down, and he went back to playing songs that everyone knew the dance moves too, so everyone wanted to dance to the moves instead of grinding.

    If they say "absolutely NO grinding, NO lights off, knee length dresses that are turtlenecks..." then no one is going to listen. Everyone is going to get mad, and then do it anyway.

    I think they should just do it like the DJ at our dance did. It was funny, and everyone had a lot of fun

    The precautions they`re taking are ridiculous. I mean, banning school dances in general?! I love grinding, it`s easy and you don`t even have to be experienced. The few kids that take it to the extreme are giving "grinding" a bad name. Honestly, if no one`s starting a fight, having sex, or taking their clothes off, it`s fine.

    Schools need to stop being so lame. My old high school tried to ban "dirty dancing" and (as my old principal called it) "black music". All that happened is that every dance had so few kids buy tickets that all of them were cancelled except homecoming and prom. Besides, stopping kids from grinding isn`t gonna stop them from going home, getting wasted and screwing each other anyway.

    Schools need to lighten up. For years they`ve been trying to force students to say the pledge of allegence. Then a couple days ago there was the 13 year old that was handcuffed and arrested for doodling during class. Now this. Won`t be long before schools are run like a military camp.

    The whole idea of "we`re only doing this for your own good" is BS, It seems like every year, there`s something else thats being outlawed or banned. Playgrounds of my day (I`m only 23) were built with two things; Concrete and Steel. Bumps, and bruises, and broken arms were part of growing up. Go visit a modern playground, it`s all plastic, rounded cornered, and foam or rubber ground. In some schools the game of TAG is banned. It`s rediculous for a second to presume that because you impede adolescents on one level "for safety", means that they are safe from the big scary world. Protecting kids and Wimp-ifing them are two different things. We are doing them no favors by raising a generation of p*ssies.

    It`s not about protecting kids, it`s about not allowing inappropriate behaviour in public. Simulated sex acts (and actual sex acts; In my day it was called dry humping) should not be allowed in school.

    You can`t stop it from happening in private, but allowing it in public is just wrong.

    How about having the kids treat these dances like a `formal` event (which many are)? Adults do this all the time. They dress up, maybe even in tuxedos, gowns, roostertail dresses, etc, and behave like the occasion warrants. They act respectably, respectfully, and then go on their way. THEN they go to the after party or the club and let loose. Or maybe wait until next weekend.

    There is nothing wrong with having a `behaviour code` in addition to a dress code, as long as -imho - it conforms to societal norms. When you go TOO far, then it starts to breed contempt.

    Is there anything inherently wrong with teaching kids that in certain situations, certain behaviour will not be accepted, and if they cannot conform they can leave? Job interview for example? Work? Formal dance?

    grinding is to 2010 what the twist was to 1960, the jitterbug was to 1927, and the waltz was to 1895; an absolutely horrifying display of an overly sexual nature that makes older generations pee themselves at the debauchery of the younger generations.

    Just wait until the 2040`s when kids are wearing g-strings rubbing up and down against each other essentially naked, while their minds are uplinked into each others minds and they are having dream-sex...

    People alive today will miss the good old days of grinding. Where people wore more than an ounce of clothing.

    Everyone pointing out that "they said grinding = pregnancy" is missing the point of the quote.

    “I’m old enough to be a grandmother but you’re not old enough to be a father.” is basically saying the the grinding will probably lead to something else. Grinding and thrusting like some drunk people at a night club at a school dance is pretty innapropriate, even if that is "cool" nowadays. Childhood has been eradicated by our society. I know of 8-year-olds having sex.

    It`s because of this chain of "I wanna be like-." The teens that grind in public wanna be like the sexy celebrities that were originally targeting the older people (who go to clubs etc) but they hear the dance style nightclub music on the radio.. then younger people wanna be like their older siblings (things like sexy underwear for kids.)

    It makes me worry about what`s gonna happen when I start having kids.. what kind of world will I be bringing them into?

    Why would you tell your mom that you were freak dancing? Especially if you go to a Catholic school. Like she was going to say "Dear, thats terrible, i`ll go contact the pope"

    i suppose i dont particularly agree with it, but calling it "simulated sex" is going a bit far isn`t it?

    Eh I actually agree with the school on this one. I`m all for freedom of expression but this is just plain inappropriate for a catholic school...

    We had an academic assembly a few weeks ago, and I wasn`t really paying attention. All of a sudden some kids got on stage and started doing... this. I was confused. Then I found out it was an example of what not to do, but that didn`t make it much better. What the hell, educational system?

    "thats pretty drated up. its not like sexuality doesn`t exist in teens, and whats so wrong with that"

    When you have kids you`ll think differently. No-one implied that sexuality doesn`t exist, and everyone`s been that age and knows the horomones are raging (in boys at least). But the problem is that kids are stupid, and i`m sure a bunch of 16 year olds will start flaming be but its true.

    Maybe this should be more of a school rule of keeping dancing friendly and just fun, instead of it being a literal federal case

    I agree with the banning of grinding. i think that if your going to dance, at least do something that takes skill.
