School policy forbids kids from saying "no" when asked to dance

Yeesh. I can think of more than a few scenarios within this where this could be... worriesome.

I remember this policy In my middle school too when there was an end of year Ball.

I don't get why people are not allowed to say no, is it so that nobody is left out from dancing?

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Wow, I think I finally found something good about my middle school -- that, bad as it was, it did not have that policy, thank god.

How do they even think that is okay? Are they really only looking at it from the angle of students feeling included and not disappointed? Kids can be terribly cruel, so what happens when the bully asks, only with the intention of trying to humiliate his/her target? The kid who is their target every single day isn't allowed to enjoy the dance on his/her own terms and is not allowed to avoid that person? I would have never gone to any school dances if mine was like that, hell no.

In addition to parents concerns about giving kids the message that they aren't allowed to say "no" and that they get no consent, that's also a bad message that also says that no one is allowed to tell them "no." So good job on continuing the trend of raising kids who can't tolerate disappointment and show them that it is "wrong" for them to have to feel it... You know, the kid who might then shoot up a school because someone, like a crush, told them no one day.

Rejection is an important life lesson.

I wonder for how long this "law" existed and how often were rejected guys who put it in place.

I never thought I'd see the day where you guys would argue for empowering women.
