Reader: Sydney Spies photo shouldn't appear in yearbook's paid section if editors reject it
Durango High's Sydney Spies appeared on the Today show yesterday to protest the decision to ban her sexy photo from the school's yearbook. Our post sharing her take inspired plenty of readers to weigh in as well, with one seeing a contradiction in the policy that would allow the shot's publication if Spies pays $300 for the privilege.
Brian Melton writes:
I'm not for her, or her mother or trying to pimp out a career in the "modeling" business by placing those pictures in the yearbook.
However... doesn't anyone find it odd that the school would allow her (or anyone else for that matter) to publish smutty pictures of themselves in a $300 ad in the back of the book? Either tell her she can't have those pictures in the yearbook or let her have them. But take a side. Don't tell her she can't unless she pays you for the privilege.
If I was in high school there, I'd probably buy a $300 ad to advertize my basement medical marijuana operation.
