Happy Almost-Friday, y’all!
Dress codes are nothing new, and this one might have flown under the radar if not for the distinct and foul stench of sexism. When a parent asked the principal why the girls couldn’t wear strapless dresses, the principal said it would be “distracting to boys.”
A parent who led the protests made a damn good point when she argued “it’s neither a woman’s nor a girl’s responsibility to control a man’s or boy’s behavior.”
What say you? Did the school have a right to do this? I just think it’s strange to draw such a stark line in the sand over what amounts to a couple of strips of thin fabric.
What else is on your mind today? Chat away!
