I can't provide you with an answer, but I can empathize, because I don't understand either. I guess it's kind of like someone getting offended over a girl showing their belly button and stomach. Although, I don't understand that either.

Well... have you tried putting it in terms of rights? Attire and the way we dress is free expression. Tell him he can't deny your rights. If you're on school grounds, then you're going to have to follow dress code procedure unless you can exploit a loophole.

And people get offended over the stupidest things, but it's their right to express that and it's your right to tell them they're fucking stupid and they need to stop bitching. I don't know your circumstances but if you're not on school grounds, you're a free person.

We've been allowed to go shirtless during practice until the principal put a stop to it today, so none of us have been breaking rules. And even if it did state in the dress code that we could not go shirtless during practice, why? It's just too silly.

The principal is retarded. -_- If it's hot out there, that's also a safety hazard. I'd fight it personally. Get a parent involved or something.

Why are people so easily offended? I think it is because they spend too much time with politically correct people and media like CNN and BBC news. If you spend more time on 4chan and Encyclopedia Dramatica, then you should grow thick skin. So in other words, you wouldn't be so easily offended by rape or racist jokes.

4Chan where trolling started. From under a bridge to the keyboard, someone will get mad.

I spend all day on 4chan. I actually have 4chan open in one of my tabs on Firefox right now. I can go over to 4chan in an instant, and start trolling there on the fly. I do occasionally troll on 4chan, but for the most part, I have serious discussions on 4chan.

I like 4chan because the anonymity means that it is impossible to hold a grudge against anyone. Whereas on sites that use usernames, it is possible to have a grudge against other users. I don't like holding grudges against other users. I like how it is impossible to have a grudge on someone on an anonymous imageboard like 4chan. How can you hold a grudge against someone if you don't even know who they are? You can only hold a grudge against someone if you know who they are, and to know who someone is, they need to be using a username.

You can hold a grudge against any of the users on CrunchyRolls because everyone uses a username on here. On 4chan, it is impossible to hold a grudge against anyone because everyone is Anonymous. Well technically you aren't anonymous on 4chan, because the admins of the site can see your ip address. But to the average user who can't see your ip address, you are pretty much anonymous to them.

So I'm on my school's cross country team. When we practice, I don't wear a shirt, because it's fucking hot outside and I find it extremely uncomfortable to wear a shirt while running.

Almost half way through my 3 mile run today, I was stopped by my coach. I was told that since the football team and other teams complained about me not wearing a shirt (specifically me because I'm the only one who doesn't wear a shirt during practice), I had to go put a shirt on and continue practice. Something about people being offended or something.

Well it's fucking hot outside, and it's uncomfortable. All I had was the shirt I wore to school today, which had to be the worst shirt I could possibly wear and run in.

Why do people get so offended over the silliest things? How do you get offended over something like this? I just don't understand.


its called school policy

and freedom of privacy.

Its sort of a crime to go topless in public.

drink more water.

be more fit.

thats all i can say.

and take of your shit when're you alone.

I think it's less about people being offended and more like someone complained about your shirt being off as it could be a possible dress code violation and your coach probably wasn't going to say anything until someone complained. At which point his hands were tied and he had to enforce it. You'll learn there are many petty people in the world and it only takes one of them to ruin it for everyone else. You should start packing some sort of shirt you do feel comfortable running in, like some sort of tank or some sort of cotton shirt (avoid synthetic fabrics) that doesn't hold your sweat up against your skin. I live in the desert where it often gets up to 120+ in the summer time and all of our XC runners still wore shirts.

It's dumb, but you'll have to learn how to deal with the pettiness and not let it get to you. I deal with this sort of crap all the time at work. High school never ends.

Living in the desert, I just thought I'd let you know that taking your clothes off and exposing more of your skin to be burned and dehydrated by the sun is about the worst thing you can to. It may give you the feeling that you're "cooling off" but in reality you're hurting yourself more than you're helping. Do you want heat stroke? Because this is how you get heat stroke. You're better off wearing light weight fabrics. Avoid synthetics and dark colors.
