I never get to these early enough, so I'm always late for the fun. Anyways, to start with a history lesson, dress codes existed far before crop tops existed and all that jazz, so that's something you should be aware of.

Dress codes are generally based upon a level of professionalism and aren't inherently sexist. Both men and women must dress in modest and appropriate wear. Men are expected in the least to have t-shirts and a pair of shorts/jeans. Women are expected to wear a top and pants/ though a dress in some cases in appropriate as it is not considered super-informal or something. Just because crop tops, short shorts etc. happened to be designed for women, the dress code isn't targeting women. Men would be held to similar grounds, the fact is though, men don't wear short shorts or crop tops so of course they aren't called out as much for the dress code.

It all comes down to whether you think a dress code is appropriate for a high school or not. The code itself appears to be mostly neutral and everyone would adhere to it. I for one, believe high school is the road to a professional education, the path for university and becoming an adult, so a certain level of professionalism I believe is not a bad idea at all.

I sure am glad I didn't grow up with this generation. It seems like there are way too many unnecessary things going on for them. Too much drama for me.

I get where she's coming from, but school's may have dress codes to upkeep a certain professional looking environment. Boys aren't allowed to wear tank tops or anything revealing shoulders at my school, either.

BUT, while that statement still stands, at my middle school, we did have a rule that included "remember girls: boys will be boys!" and I did find that very dehumanizing now that I look back it.

If anything that bolded part is more insulting to a male.

We had so much fun you missed most of it.
But yes, this is all true. New generations usually have different fashion styles. Kids wanna wear them & show everyone how they look in it. School is the perfect place for that. People seem to forget the social aspects in school. I never got a chance to say this earlier.
But I'd say maybe college is the best time to start looking professional for work. Not really high school. Cuz you are gonna have an actual job pretty soon & of course, need to learn to be & dress appropriately for it.

boys will be boys could be interpreted as young minds will do as young minds will,that saying is most of the time used to cover for peoples mistakes so why are you taking it as offensive, theirs "girls will be girls" so its not very sexist, and were talking boys not men,boys as in a undeveloped male.

Why can't every country just be like Japan and have their schools? Their grading system, uniform code, etcetera.

High school boys do not equal men. In age or in maturity.

its like saying to a woman " your a girl" instead of "your a little girl"
one is offensive while the other is acceptable

I was just joking but I actually do hear that often from teenage guys.
Always seem worried about their masculinity, so calling them boys feels insulting.
Kinda sad, really.
