These kids are right! DEUS VAULT
@Dark Lord Friendly, but seriously though, would it kill girls nowadays to have a LITTLE bit of modesty?
@XxDEMONBANExX, no it would not. We are in one of the prime ages of humanity with advance clothing and technology yet the girls want to revert to when humans were first created
@Dark Lord Friendly, I'm currently imagining Jesus at a track meet
@Donald Drumpf, he would be and is very disappointed
You know what? Maybe we should be encouraging young men to learn to focus in the midst of extreme arousal, since it’s how they’re gonna Spend pretty much the rest of their fvcking lives. It’s a viable skill.
@Berntley, are you a young male? Any young male will tell you that you're asking an elephant to climb a tree. I don't disagree with the sentiment, but it's a pretty amazing sight when an elephant actually climbs a tree.
@Reach4God, true. But it’s easier for an elephant to grow up knowing how to climb a tree than it is for one to suddenly realize it needs to later in life.
@Berntley, No, the grown elephant is already taller than the tree by the time it's grown.
@Berntley, how about teaching your daughters not to be ho’s?
@Pubmarine Shamwich, or your sons not to be perverts? There’s a difference between what is seen as distracting, and what’s conceivably slutty, and the schools do not make that distinction in telling the girls how they may represent themselves.
@Berntley, obviously you don’t have daughters. I do, and they have self respect, hence they don’t dress like ho’s. When you have a daughter of your own, skank her up and let’s see how things go.
@Pubmarine Shamwich, I have two daughters. Still young. I plan to raise them to have confidence and individuality, and not to concern themselves with the weaknesses of others in how they conduct themselves. Again, there’s a lot of overlap in what kind of appearance distracts boys vs what is actually provocative dress.
@Berntley, why not put every child in a uniform? An oversized polo shirt and unflattering khaki pants takes care of this for BOTH sides real damn quick. It's been proven. Kids can express themselves some other way OUT of school
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I think that at least that’s a fair solution, except that there are even a number of ways that it can’t be. I read about one school where the boys weren’t allowed to wear shorts under any circumstances, even if it was hella hot outside. They revolted by wearing the same skirts the girls would wear (which is just great). I’m not a huge proponent for school uniforms, overall, though. I think that our school years are largely how we cultivate our sense of individuality, and part of that is being allowed to express ourselves within our peer groups. But, I may be over exaggerating the effects. Maybe it’s not that big a deal. Some kids love being at schools where uniforms are required. I wouldn’t have stood for it as a kid. I always told my mom that if she took me to a school where uniforms were required, I wouldn’t go. Fortunately, we could never afford it anyway.
@Berntley, there are studies that show separate boy/girl schools can increase academics in both genders. Although uniforms plus same gender schools would increase academics, the US won't put it in place due to cost. As far as boys not being allowed to wear shorts? My sympathy is low for that one. Not due to gender bias--- but in the professional world there are sometimes ridiculous rules such as that. My friend who is a band director in Texas can't wear shorts when directing during practice. Why? Teachers are expected to be in slacks/pants except on jean allowable days. As far as boys wearing shorts? If they are middle school/high school they can get over it. Prep them for reality and workplace expectations
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I wouldn’t be totally against an all girls school, though I think occasional integration should be a thing. Sporting events, naturally, but maybe picnics or other coed opportunities (I mean, you wanna talk about real world preparation). As for that real world nonsense, you’re already recognizing that the dress codes as adults are largely arbitrary and nonsensical, yet you insist we should perpetuate those nonsense rules from a young age. There is literally no reason for that. People will dress professionally if they choose to. I do. I could wear shorts, jeans, hell, I could show up to work in a kilt and get away with it, and I work in the community in a very professional position. But those above me don’t believe in telling us what to wear as far as professionality goes. They do caution the women against dressing super provocatively, but not with arbitrary guidelines like no spaghetti straps. Basically, they just warn the women what kind of population we are
@Berntley, whether I believe they are nonsensical or not, the primary purpose of school is preparation for the "real world". I am a jeans T-shirt gal. I believe that I can teach just as well in a pair of jeans as in slacks/dress. But, society hasn't matriculated into that thought yet :) so we have to (as educators) prepare as much as possible. Especially in title I schools where a lot of kiddos get no preparation at home. I like your idea of coed events- but as far as academics, one gender all uniform is realistically more sense for middle school. That age can't even function when it RAINS outside. Two less distractions would make a significant impact
@Berntley, working with, and how they want to be perceived, which is really no different than the rules we have to follow (or I have to follow. I’m the only guy) for ourselves, but considering a large part of the population still views women as sex objects first and foremost, sure, they have to keep these things in mind. So, we can prep our teenagers for the arbitrary bullshît that really has no more place in adult society as it does school, or we can cultivate individuality and prepare them to change the world and make an impact by not having to worry about being the round peg for the round holes. So much energy is wasted on trying to force our youth to assimilate to a manner of conduct that makes us comfortable. We need to get over ourselves and let future generations forge their own paths.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, Fewer. I get what you mean. I still disagree with the concept of such a restrictive dress code. Then again, there’s a lot of things in this respect that I don’t get how we’re still so held back. On that note, what are your thoughts on the actual letter? Being an educator, do you think this was actually written by boys in high school? And if it was (or wasn’t), do you think it’s actually about a legitimate concern for how the girls’ dress might affect the educational focus of the young boys, or something else? Do you think it would actually make a difference in how teen boys looked at their female peers if they dressed more appropriately?
I am a girl, and I agree with this.
@iStalkBruceWillis, in spite of the down vote you received this female agrees with your agreement. High schoolers dressing like jail bait is very distasteful. They should have one day a year where the guys dress like the girls (booty shorts, plunging necklines) to make their point.
@Shazamanite, I wouldn't mind that.
@Shazamanite, Some kids in my journalism class dressed with the same length of clothes as girls and I think only one kid was called out on it once compared to girls being called out a few times.
My high school really did have a pretty big fight over this issue, I still don't think it's enforced equally.
I really didn't care and usually if a girl dressed really skimpy, she wasn't my type. But that's just me. I get it can be really hot and there are many sides to this argument. I just hope it comes to a point where everybody is happy and cool.
@iStalkBruceWillis, im a female and i agree with you
@iStalkBruceWillis, how did this comment possibly get downvotes?
@Jauffre, there will always be someone who disagrees with anyone. Just to be a poopy pants.
Guys gonna have a rough time at college
Is there a butt-hurt high school girl just down voting everyone's comments here?
@iStalkBruceWillis, I’m assuming so.
I mean he’s not wrong
Anyone else think a little modesty can be WAY more attractive sometimes?
@August Wthr, who wants a present that someone else has already unwrapped?
@August Wthr, hell yeah. There's nothing wrong with a slightly provocative outfit, but the other day I saw a girl wearing a bra, minishirt and a jacket. It was too slutty to be attractive. Us blokes like a bit of a challenge at least to appease our egos
@August Wthr, yes
“I get a boner when I look at you therefore YOU are at fault young lady wear your skirt and head back to the kitchen.” -This guy
Segregated school systems work.
I think as long as boys and girls are held at the same standard that more conservative dress code isn't a bad thing, I do get annoyed when girls are expected to do more, like in a case where the students were going somewhere where swimsuits would be worn and the girls were told to wear shirts but the boys were not or when they sent a girl home because she wasn't wearing a bra.
Wouldn't it be grammatically correct to say, "Dressing like THOT?"
@Empshok, THOT has basically become a noun of its own now.
@Captain Swordsman, not to me, Cap'm. Not to me.
@Empshok, it would, but human stupidity increases every day.
@Grizzy, sounds like entropy
It’s clear there’s only one solution to this problem. Girls can wear anything they want, and boys with straight A’s get to have sex with any girl they want (sometimes referred to as joining the “On her” Society). Boys seeing scantily clad girls will actually be more encouraged to study for the reward. It’s the only logical solution
Similar # of votes for a pic telling girls that it's their fault teenage boys are horny AF and can't control themselves but 3x the downvotes on a pic with happy anime lesbians. 321748
Now IDK about you personally but I was (and still am) a sex-crazed guy and it Hardly matters what kind of clothes you're wearing. Yes some stuff may make one look better or worse but in the end, it isn't your clothes I'm interested in. Point being: you're Damned teenagers. You're going to be hornier than a triceratops. Deal with it like literally every other generation has, STFU and be responsible for Your actions and flaws. And enjoy those that want to advertise or don't look. Don't push your control on others.
(Pushing freedoms (freedom of dress would fall under 1A) is not the same as pushing control.)
No. Please. Don’t dress like a tramp. That would be the worst.
They even took a picture of the sheet slightly tilted like true thots.
Like a that ho over there?
Too hot for these thots. Little boys need to focus on school, not those toys
There are two ways to look at this: some girls do under dress and some guys have a poor self esteem to just blame girls this way to over come their insecurities.
