Parent of a female teen whose school banned leggings
#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators
^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)
This parent is right. The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers. Have I got that right? (rhetorical)

All of the above, and additionally, has anyone actually asked the male students about this? I doubt it - this is grown adults deciding what it is about underage girls’ clothing that is ‘too distracting’ (ie, too sexy), which is a whole new level of ‘ew’.
That’s what it really comes down to. No male student’s viewpoint was taken into account here, I guarantee it. This is adults censoring (girl) children, it’s in the same vein as ‘protect your daughter’s purity’ cultural mores, it’s “we think there is something fundamentally wrong about a girl’s body and we need to start teaching her this NOW”, and yes it involves full-grown school officials sexualizing young girls and policing them for it. It’s gross on several levels.

I have decided that I will reblog this every time it comes across my dash because it makes me laugh until I think I’m going to puke.
