The A.C.L.U. will be monitoring the event so to all the fathers, no dancing with your daughters and to all the mothers, no dancing with your sons.

This was not at all the purpose or basis of the ACLU complaint...please do a little reading up.

Scott, that is absolutely untrue. Think about what you said, this is not a gender specific title and that is what precipitated the strongest argument against the Father-Daughter and Mother-Son events. BASICS has nothing to worry about...and I do read thru your comment thinking it was said in jest...but we don't want to perpetuate any worry or fear. Reading up as Bill said, is best. I'll bet tapping with my kids and ensuring that each one get's a Tootsie dance with me.

This is a fund raiser for the students; lets not turn it into a political debate or it will be ruined for all parents and students participating!
