dress code is sexist and unnecessary. it makes adolescent girls feel like they have to hide their body and be ashamed of their shoulders. bra straps aren’t allowed?? whats so sinful about an elastic?? what about all the boys walking around with their pants sagging and wearing muscle tees? but girls can’t do that? from the moment they are put in school, girls are pushed to believe that showing their own shoulders and legs is inappropriate and sexy. the only thing we can do to change this is teach men not to sexualize the female body! but schools don’t want to do that. they don’t want to put time and effort into teaching boys something very important.
