Ah yes I can feel the equality.
oh man i didn’t realise my belly button was so offensive and inappropriate
You know what, when I was in high school, I found dress codes like this ridiculous. But now I realize this is to prevent any problems. We live in a world filled with perverted teachers and horny boys who think showing your belly button means “yes”. Yes, dress codes are unfair and unequal. But we currently live in a culture that is unfair and unequal. This is how schools choose to deal with it.
Also, its school. School sucks. Fucking get over it. You have a life time to walk around almost naked. You don’t need to dress revealing at a school dance anyway.
While I think school dress codes prepare you for dressing professionally in a work environment later on in life, the reason in favor of them stated above is a bunch of horse shit. It’s not on me or anyone else to make sure ‘perverted teachers and horny boys’ don’t disregard consent and commit sexual assault. That’s not our responsibility. Dressing professionally is a reasonable request, but being told to dress a certain way so that you don’t get molested is adding to rape culture and I personally find it repugnant. Also, if something sucks, you shouldn’t be content to ‘fucking get over it’. You should try to change it.
