Are All-Girls Proms Fun or Lame?

For many Americans, prom is a rite of passage. The guy asks the girl to be his date, they get dressed up, pose for cute pictures in expensive gowns and tuxes, and maybe, just maybe, get into a little trouble later on. But this is hardly the scene at Michigan's Hamtramck High School. Because Hamtramck just held its first all-girl prom.
The prom was all-girls mainly because many of the students at the school are Muslim, so they cannot date, dance with boys or appear without a head scarf in front of males, The New York Times reports. The girls decided to party anyway ... and non-Muslim girls showed up, too. "I want to support all my girls," Sylwia Stanko told the Times. "I know how important it is to them."
This may sound lame to you, but Gurl.com thinks it's a great idea. "During my junior year, I went to prom with a big group of girls -- and I have to say, it was the most fun ever," she writes. And she loves that the non-Muslim girls got all dressed up for the dance, too. "Even though these girls could totally go to the regular prom and dance with guys, they showed up at the one that was for girls only just so they could let loose with their best girlfriends." Ladies, would you attend an all-girls prom? Guys, how do you feel about being excluded?
