Two inappropriate emails sparked outrage and fears of cyberbullying in Ipswich, Mass. this week. The emails were sent to many of Ipswich High School’s male juniors and listed 22 female students who didn’t have prom dates — along with comments about their interests, sizes and dating experience.
The email initially appeared to be from junior class officers, but Ipswich school officials say they weren’t the ones responsible. Rather, the sender obtained students’ email addresses through a Facebook account set up by the officers related to next month’s prom, reports The Salem News.
The first email named the girls and detailed their hobbies and sizes; the second assessed the girls’ dating experience using a system of asterisks: One for girls who had “never been kissed,” two for girls who had “had a couple of good relationships” and three for girls who wore “yoga pants, belly rings, low-cut shirts every day.”
