What if your Daughter Wanted This Photo as Her Senior Portrait?

One Colorado student is upset because her chosen senior portrait was not going to be published. The five student editors said it would not be used as her portrait because it is too racy. They said she could use it as her senior ad but not her portrait. The student is upset saying that it was administration who banned the picture and that the student editors turned their back on her. The editors are claiming it was all their decision.

I personally would not want my daughter using this photo in her senior year book. I think it is too racy and is not appropriate. But.. That is MY OPINION...

What are your thoughts? Would you help your daughter fight for this to be used as her picture?

ok when i was a senior, we had one pose in the yearbook. Face forward with that black drape over us. That was it. I'm sure she's upset but oh well. Get over it. Post your half naked pictures on facebook, not in a yearbook. If my son's picture was next to her's i'd be livid!!! They did the right thing not allowing it. If she's taking pictures like that and wanting them posted for all to see... that tell's you something about her character.... not good.

While I think she is a very pretty girl and I have some pictures like that of myself in high school ( yes, I was a child of the 80s spandex, midriffs showing, and big hair were normal attire as well as skin tight jeans with zippers on the ankles to get them over the feet :) ) however they weren't in the year book because we had to wear that stupid black shaw thing and had to chose from certain poses so that way we all looked similar.Heck they use the same photographer, the same style poses, and the same tuxes and black shaws now that they did 20 years ago when I graduated in PBC. A friends son is graduating this year and we just laughed comparing his senior pictures to his dads because they were identical.

I had a child who was a senior last year and one this year.  Same thing, drape or tux photo that looks just like everyone else's. Although I wish they could have more of a personalized senior picture, this is exactly the reason some schools won't allow any individuality when it comes to these things. (I'm even more upset that they don't even get a senior quote under their picture...but oh well) My son wanted to dress like "Where's Waldo" for the class picture (of 200+students) but was told he couldn't wear the hat or classes because it was "distracting". Maybe we should raise a fuss, call the press and try to sue someone...OR we could say "too bad that they don't have our same sense of humor." and MOVE ON WITH OUR LIVES! Some people just need to make a big deal over small things. (and just for the record I would ground my daughter for life if she tried using a picture like that for her senior picture...or maybe for even taking a picture like that! lol)

Here's the photo... what do you think?

hahahhaa wheres waldo! that would have been AWESOME!!! :-)

Inappropriate.  As a parent, I would not approve of this and would be asking why she would want this posted anywhere public.

once again since my ppost was mysterously deleted this is from a photoshoot. she is 18 yo and an aspiring model... If you go to msnbc.com or msn.com the article is better written and states this fact. She is a bneautiful girl and some people are just jealous of this .

I think she is a pretty girl but I think the black drape should continue to be the standard.  Otherwise, it will just be one competition after another between girls as to who can find the cutest and sexiest outfit.  Also, this may be a problem with the girls who have less than flattering figures.  Right now, it is kind of hard to tell what shape a girl has in the senior pic and maybe it should just continue this way.  I know the seniors get other pics done besides the year book pic and are individual. 

Absolutely not. It's a senior picture not America's Next Top Model. One girl in my class did not have a traditional picture available because she had braces at the time the pictures were due so she submitted a pic that her mom took of her at home. Big 90's hair and all. lol

To me there's enough to look back on and regret than having a, to me, provocative picture forever in the annals of my former classmates and school library.

my thing is this. We're all adults here. You got a picture like this in a high school yearbook, and what do you think teenage boys will be doing with it. I would find myself disgusted if it was my daughters picture boys were pleasing themselves too... so there is something wrong with her parents thinking it's ok.  If she is an aspiring model, then she would have a portfolio. An escort ad, which to me is what it looks like, doesn't belong in a yearbook were it will be seen for years....
