WSOC Retracts ‘Vagina First’ Graduation Story
mediabistro.com ^ | 6/15/12

Posted on 06/15/2012 9:32:08 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

WSOC is apologizing for a series of stories covering a “controversial” high school yearbook photo that may or may not have shown an 18-year-old student lifting up her graduation gown to flash her vagina.

In an all-caps message on its website this week, the Charlotte ABC-affiliate issued a formal apology and retracted all of the stories published on the site related to the photo.

“WE OPENLY AND FULLY APOLOGIZE TO THE YOUNG LADY SHOWN IN THE PHOTOGRAPH AND TO OUR READERS,” the post states, listing a series of statements contained in the stories that the station now admits were made in error.

Same liberal station, WSOC, on their web site has an area called "Links We Like", and one of those links is one ripping Mitt Romney for not "standing up" to Donald Trump.

I smell a lawsuit.

I guess the young woman forgot that her decision will follow her for years.

She did not show her vagina she showed her pubis area.
Man, when will people get body parts correct.
I graduated in 1965, Santa Barbara CA.
We were sitting in a stadium, the audience was in front of us and the podium speakers had their backs to us, but turned sideways when they handed out the called the names.
The last person called was Wendy.
She took her diploma turned our way (no one else could see her) she opened her gown flashed the crowd - she was completely naked. Needless to say we cheered and stood up as she closed her robe and walked back to the stadium.
The audience thought we were cheering because we had graduated.
The flash is not new.

Indeed. However, there were no digital cameras then and you didn’t have the internet.

First rule of photography: Don't photograph anything you don't want everybody to see forever.

True. A bunch of guys got in those photo booths and took pictures of their manhood and past them around to the girls.
Normally we just threw them on the ground after laughing.
The point is that kids will use what is at their disposal to be kids.

I'll take you word for it; I am not going to view the photo.

Considering how obsessed the "education" establishment are with despoiling the childhoods of school children with total sexual knowledge at the earliest age, it is amazing how often this error is made.

Either that or the girl is a contortionist.

My Grandfather always said... "there is NOTHING NEW under the sun"...

The older I get, the more I understand what he was talking about!

And somebody put that in the school yearbook?!

If so, arrest the school officials for production of porn.

The vagina is internal. Unless she had a mirror or laying on her back you can’t see her vagina.
The picture I saw she lifted up her gown and you saw her pubis area.

Yearbook porn is the next big thing in publishing.

What’s really funny about this story is school officials are saying that it is just an optical illusion.

Shaved beaver or optical illusion?

You decide!

Even if it was an optical illusion, that wouldn’t be appropriate either. Where the heck is this school district? Somebody should definitely be fired over this - specifically anybody who knew of it and allowed it to go in - and the yearbook should be required to be re-done without porn images - whether an “illusion” or real - in it.

And then the girl should be arrested for indecent exposure.

You need to become educated on physiology. The vagina is an internal organ, normally concealed by the external genitalia.

You sound more ignorant all the time...

The correct one-word term for what you are trying to describe is, "vulva".

You're on the internet; look it up for yourself!!

In the original photo, the young lady is not “lifting” any article of clothing. She is holding (in both hands) some sort of brochure or printed program — like the person to her left is.

Jeessh, I know what a vagina is..I just use the street term for what parts you can see.
