My 16 yo dd won't wear a dress to the homecoming dance. She flat out refuses. She was invited to go by a boy and she told him no that she wasn't going. My dh and I suggested going with just her friends but she doesn't want to wear a dress and she said all the other girls are. A friend of mine with a bi-sexual dd said since my dd has always dressed like a boy (doesn't like dresses) she is most likely gay. I told her I have a cousin who said she didn't wear a dress in middle school or high school till she was a senior and I'm sure there are others who did this but weren't gay. Has anyone had personal experience with this?Answer Question

I didn't wear dresses either. I'm not gay. That's an ignorant thing to say. So, does she assume that just because a woman wears a dress that this implies that she is straight? LOL. I just personally hated the way I looked in all of the dresses I tried on when I was younger. It's still hard for me to find something I am comfortable with. Been happily married to a man for 13 years and have never had the desire to switch sides.

When I was in grade 8 we had a grade dance, I to did not wear a dress in fact 4 of us decided as girls we would not conform to the expected idea of what girls should wear. We wore dress pants and sleeveless blazers. But you know Madonna was in so.....Just think if she is gay then she won't get pregnant sooo there's that!

Any of these would work great. I really like the one on the right, although I probably couldn't have done that even in HS because I'm short.
