A Pennsylvania high school student is up in arms after she was kicked out of her prom for wearing a suit after being warned at the last-minute.

A charge that the Catholic school disputes.

The girl, Aniya Wolf, said she is not transgender but is a lesbian and does not like wearing girl’s clothing, according to WHMT-TV.

“I was always more masculine. You wouldn’t catch me playing with any Barbie dolls, I’ll tell you that right now,” she told WHMT.

“You know, a lot of girls’ dresses, I mean I’m not saying that all of them are this way, but they do show a lot of skin. I think I’m dressed pretty modestly,” she said.

When her mother said they received, what she called, a last-minute email telling them all girls had to wear dresses to the prom she called the school.

“I told them that I had read the dress code that was given to the students and I didn’t think that it precluded her from wearing a suit. I said that this was very unfair, particularly at the last-minute. We had gone out and bought a new suit. I think my daughter is beautiful in a suit,” Carolyn Wolf said.

Wolf said a school official took her by the arm, removed her from the event and threatened to call the police, WHMT reported.

“I think my experience shouldn’t be any different than anyone else’s because of something I was born with,” Aniya Wolf said.

The school said “love, respect and cherish all of our students,” in a statement posted on Facebook.

“The dress code for the prom specified girls must wear formal dresses. It also stated that students who failed to follow the dress code would not be admitted.

“The full dress code policy was sent to parents about three months ago. A reminder was sent to all students on March 6. On Friday afternoon, when it was brought to the attention of the school administration that a female student was planning to wear a tuxedo, we contacted her mother in hopes we could resolve the situation,” the statement read.
