Why do people get so offended?

Because you would become an exception, and any instances of exemption to the rules would undermine the meticulously established order of your school. Although I'd say the administration ought to concern itself with more pressing issues than student preferences of how they exercise. It's good that you offended them.

In conflict, the utterance of "I find that offensive.", makes me succumb to a sickness of intestinal disorder.

In a discourse of debate one will eventually find an adversary who thinks such a phrase shall act as a merit to their position and that the opposition should redact or withdraw. Based on what? That others may have concurrent perception of offense? Clearly they are not the absolute. Those others are likely to be intellectually unburdened or chemically unbalanced. Regardless, it is voicing opinion based on the historical, common, or anecdotal perspective. I am a person who does not hold in high esteem the concept of philanthropy or toleration for idiots. In short, only an idiot or person appealing to popular opinion or fallacy will ever use such in an argument or ever feel unsubstantiatedly offended.

Lastly, don't go jogging around the park shirtless, there are children present, and their minds and eyes soak everything in like desiccated sponges.

football is probably a big tip-off, they have to suffer so they want you to suffer as well.
If they are truly offended by a guy without shirt, pools and beaches must be hell.
Let's not forget people doing yard work.

At my old high school, no-one was allowed to be half-naked on school grounds unless they were on the swim club, and this was limited to the vicinity of the pool. It was just an inappropriate thing to do at my school lol. And if you wanted to bend the rule (to be shirtless as part of a costume in a play or the like), you had to follow procedure and fill out a form for student council to be given to the principal for approval a day in advance. No big deal, and our principal was nice. Not that I've ever seen any plays where someone needed to be shirtless anyway lol.

And that does make sense and that's what I thought. But last year and even last semester, the football team and some of the XC team were going shirtless to practice. This is what led me to believe that it was just the principals doing, and nobody was actually offended. I'm finding it hard to believe the football team actually cared whether I wore a shirt or not, which is why I've yet to talk to their coach about it.

And that's just silly. I find it so hard to see how it's inappropriate. And it's not like we're doing this because we want to show off our ripped bods, it's just so hot outside and so uncomfortable to run for long distances in the sun with a shirt on.

Our cross country team was allowed to run with shirts off, i mean if OP was 400 pounds then i'd probably tell him to put a shirt on too Kappa

That's stupid, that's like saying you have to wear a shirt while swimming

same thing happened to me once. football moms complained.

"the team will continue to suck regardless" I said, to an unreceptive audience.

If I was you I would've just put the shirt on and said nothing and just went on my merry way. I gotta obey the rules.Then if by chance I was to get sick from heatstroke I would sue the school. They can pay for my doctor bills( if I end up going to the emergency room) since they were the ones who told me I needed to wear a shirt. Or if I stayed home the next day sick and they asked why I wasn't in school I'd be honest and say "You told me I had to where a shirt while practicing and it was hot outside, that caused me to get sick.". I would suggest you don't act like an immature kid about it, just be mature and calm. They shouldn't be able to turn it around on you since you were just obeying them.
I do think it was a stupid call on their part because you could have seriously been hurt.

You kno I was sorta thinking the same thing earlier when I taking a walk. I felt the weather was soo hot I feel like running topless. Then I imagined the scenario I could of stopped traffic or gotten glares. Basically your sexy body is too much for people to handle along with the heat.

It annoys me when people go around shirtless. I don't want to see any of that. But I'm not going to go complain about it or tell them to put a shirt on.
