If guys are wearing camel toes, I suspect (and hope!) they'll be busted, too. When guys butts are hanging out the bottoms of their shorts, I suspect (and hope!) they'll be busted, too, just like they were when their butts hung out the tops of their shorts.A teenage girl who was suspended from school recently for wearing denim short shorts has publicly challenged the school dress code, declaring it sexist.
Lindsey Stocker, an 11th-grader at Beaconsfield High School in Quebec, Canada, says that she and several female classmates were asked to stand up for an outfit inspection during class. The girls were instructed to put their arms by their sides so school officials could assess whether the bottom of their shorts or skirts lined up with their fingertips. If their fingers reached beyond their hemlines, the girls would be considered in violation of the school's dress code."When I started explaining why I didn’t understand that rule, they didn’t really want to hear anything I had to say, and it was in front of my entire class. I felt very attacked … and I wanted to tell them how I felt," Lindsey told Canadian news outlet CBC. "They should approach it in a way that doesn’t target girls at least — for starters — because that’s the first problem. They don’t really care what guys wear. They just kind of target the girls first."
But let's continue:
Yahoo Shine could not reach Lindsey for comment; however, she told Canada's Global News, “There’s a huge rape culture that educational systems aren’t really paying attention to. They’re actually contributing to it without realizing it.”I'm gonna say it. So-called rape culture exists only in the minds of idiots--at least, here in the Western World. Honey, what you are contributing to "without realizing it" is exactly what you whine about in your little tantrum-induced sign, and that is treating women as sexual objects. I'm not saying you need to wear a hijab, far from it, but If you're going to show off the entire length of your legs all the way up to your vaginal region and butt, you can't get upset if someone's checking out your legs and your vaginal region and butt. You can say "don't look", I say "don't throw it in my face".
And then the article actually takes a grown-up tack:
The Lester B. Pearson School Board did not return Yahoo Shine’s calls for comments, however, a representative released a statement to BuzzFeed that read, “It needs to be clear that this is always an opportunity for the school to make it a learning situation for the students… To sensitize them about hypersexualization, which is often a topic that is discussed and the students are well aware of.”Hear hear.
According to Los Angeles-based child psychologist Fran Walfish, PsyD, prohibiting young girls from wearing especially short shorts is appropriate, especially if dress codes for boys are equally enforced.
