There is a dress code for a reason. Preventing these teenagers/kids to dress in a provacative way. Breaking the rules means being sent home or detention. She retaliated by wearing a crop top, why wouldn't she be sent home?


"Provocative."

We might as well be wearing dresses covering up every part of are body but our face like in the 1800s
I assure you, most girls don't go to school dressing like they going to the beach.
That picture is LITERALLY the most skin they show when in school.
I guess showing our legs & shoulders & midriffs are so provocative it gives every boy in a 20 mile radius a boner? Then all the blood in their brain goes to their dick, preventing them to get an education.
Damn, fuck us for our bodies developing into what a female body would.


Can't you make a point without trying to empathize with victimizing yourself? That's not provocative but it's just not school attire, that's it. There is no hidden meaning, it's just not something you wear to school, if a guy came in wearing what he wanted he would also be told that's inappropriate. I don't know how this very same thing, translates into 'omg boys just can't control themselves' which is sexist, which is the very thing you're apparently against. Well, I know how it translates, because you can't debate so you try blaming males for your problems.


Ok...what is school attire? Uniforms? Clearly that school doesn't have uniforms.
Also guys are often dressing how they want. lmao Unless its a shirt that's actually inappropriate (like has curse words I guess & some sexual context), that's when they are dresscoded. Not for simply showing skin.
I can't debate? Neither can you then. If pointing out the opposite sexes problems = can't debate. That's all you are doing, but difference is its that its wrong and actually sexist.
I'm not being sexist. I said this like over 10 times already there's a difference between sexism & prejudice.

you wouldn't get a decent job dressed like that ...

and i'm just saying that if a nice lookin guy came in to work (or school) half dressed i certainly wouldnt be able to concentrate on my work... but it would be ok cuz it's hot outside and he should dress how he likes and he can't help how his body develops or strives to keep himself in shape oh and i should be completely in control of my thoughts and urges at all times anyway right???

You just don't get it lol, if someone don't dress the part, it don't matter what it is chances are you'll be told to wear what's needed the next day when you come in. I would know I've been there. This girl made a huge deal out of and was probably the real reason she got sent home. Posts it on tumblr and somehow PATRIARCHY is to blame.

I'd jump him... and say that he was totally asking for it.

I'm not sure what you mean by "this guy". It's a valid opinion, and I agree with a lot of it.

I don't understand how pushing modest dress in pubic schools is a bad thing, let alone promotes rape culture. Sure, some schools go overboard by getting girls in trouble if their bra strap accidentally shows, or the like. Girls wear bras, weird, right? But wanting to bear your midriff, wear crop-tops, hot pants, etc? I was a teenage boy once. It'd be hella distracting.

Now, before all the feminists come barging in, I say the same about the boys. There is no point in wanting to wear short shorts, open chested shirts, going shirtless, sagging to show your boxers, or whatever at school. Let's be honest here, you're only doing it to make a statement, and whatever that statement is, it doesn't matter at school. You're there for an education, not to rebel against the system or show off your body or anything else.

Again, that can be related back to girls. Be honest and ask yourself why you want to show more skin at school. Unless it's 120 degrees and you feel you're gonna die if you wear so much as a t-shirt, that reason is generally superficial in a school setting. Boys can't go topless or open chested at school either. If you feel empowerment from your naked image, there is a better time and place to show it off than at an educational institution. If you think you look cute in a crop-top, great! You probably do. If you are one of those who are fighting for quality in allowing girls to go topless, also great! But, not in school.

Yes schools should stop overreacting to minor slips in dress codes, but it's not like boys can wear whatever they want at school and girls are forced into single identical uniforms. The issue is that girls, for some reason (most likely societal pressures on the female image), seem to want to push the limits of the dress codes in schools far more than boys do.



"This guy." Is the one I quoted. He has made several threads that eventually got removed, all of them having sexist/hate remarks.

Also that constantly happens. Girls are often just dresscoded for simply showing midriff, shoulders, or legs. That is why we hate it so much & find it unfair. Girls are usually covering enough of their body. The most they would arrive in school dressed as in a tank top & shorts. Shorts that, most likely, are probably an inch or two longer from showing their cheeks. Even then, that rarely ever happens. I'm not saying boys don't get dress coded, but compared to girls, not much.
Also you are right, we are there for an education. So why are we being sent home for wearing "inappropriate" clothing?
This is why its frustrating & need to say something about it. We wanna learn, but we are being sent home for showing skin on our bodies.

I've only ever had one thread ever, removed which was yesterday and that had nothing to do with sexism. Stop trying to make up stuff as if you have an argument.

And I assume you'd be perfectly fine being operated on by surgeon dressed like that. Or have your children be taught by a teacher dressed as such. I can never understand what these people think they'd get out of fighting for the "freedom" to show off their bodies or dress however they wish. Exactly what good does this do for anyone? Oh yay! Mini-skirts and crop tops are allowed everywhere now. Now we can't tell the difference between the one trying to sell sex and the one trying to go to school.


No. This is school. Not the doctors office. This is school, not work.
You don't understand because you don't agree. If you really think this is considered like stripper wear, then like I said, we might as well be wearing dresses from the 1800s.
Cuz fuck us for having the female body.

If I were your boss and you you show up for work in an outfit that is inappropriate and against the established dress code, I will send you home. Granted you're there to work and your attire may not necessarily interfere with said work, but you are also expected to follow the rules. If you can't do that and want to live by your own rules, then by all means go be your own boss. School is designed to prepare children for this. Being a part of society means knowing when to follow the rules. If you cannot follow a simple (and often pretty lenient) school dress code, then as I've mentioned before: good luck trying to find a decent career outside of being a stripper.

mm why is it that you have to be so defensive. Then we must be part of different worlds -joking of course- The city near me, I can guarantee that the girls in that high school wear things that can be worn to the beach. You can not generalize that every teenager dresses the same. These students go to that school, that school has rules. If they do not like what they have to wear, then by all means transfer schools. I went to a private middle school (not by choice). We had to wear the whole attire: long skirts, button up shirts, and knee high socks. Did I like it? NO, but does that mean I have to break the rules because I can not wear what I want? NO. Anyways, boys are boys. Grown men are grown men. Girls should wear what they want, but then again don't complain about the smart inappropriate remarks men make. So I stand by in what I said in the beginning. She had a voice, but she could have used it for a better reason.


That's a uniform.
Damn, fuck me for defending my sex. Fuck me for wanting me & my girls to have equal right & be heard.
Also she had a voice, & used it. Unlike most of us, who often don't have the courage to do so.
Whether its a good reason or not to you, she used it.

And what exactly are you going to school for? Modeling? That's the only way I'd find this entire thing acceptable. At least it's some form of training for that.

If you really want to proudly show your female body, go join some tribe in the Amazon where women are freely able to walk around half naked. You might enjoy it there.

THAT IS WORK. NOT SCHOOL.
Also, Damn I didn't know not showing skin was a part of the school rules. Also, nothing wrong with being a stripper. At least that stripper probably be making more money than you.
Honestly.

Its like you never read what I write.

You guys can continue giving me the same argument but it won't go anywhere. I know what I'm talking about.
I actually have a reasonable argument to counter with every single one of your claims.

No point in arguing with someone so dim. *shrugs*

I never said there was anything wrong or bad about being a stripper. When the hell did I say that? Then again, it's not surprising if you don't get it. Should I spell it out for you? What I meant to say was that if you cannot follow a simple dress code, then you're better off with a career that requires no clothing. And finally, yes. They're probably making more money than I am, which is great for them. Doesn't really mean much to me though. I'm not desperate for cash or anything.
