I was on Facebook and someone had shared someone else’s post a sign that really got to me. I thought about that sign and realized that the kids in schools don’t understand nor do they care or or simply not being taught anymore about a “time and a place” rule. Instead they rally behind the “I want, want want” cry whenever they want something without thinking about if it is really appropriate or not. Now I understand kids will usually take the opposite stance and get their hackles up, which is normal teen behavior. This is why parents need to step up and explain what clothing is appropriate to certain situations.
Take the above photo. That is clothing appropriate to an office environment. Professional people who wear appropriate clothing in the work place. Sane people understand this and understand that wearing clothing that is meant for beaches, is not appropriate for an office. Like these outfits:
This is what the currently crop of people and feminists are screaming about. They want to wear clothing meant for summer and beaches to places of work and education.
Then there is the other problem with the post I had read. Here is the image so you can understand.
In case you can’t read it here is what it says
“When you INTERRUPT a girls school day to for her to CHANGE CLOTHES, or SEND HER HOME, because her shorts are too SHORT or her BRA STRAPS are VISIBLE, YOU are telling her that making sure BOYS have a “DISTRACTION FREE” LEARNING ENVIRONMENT is MORE IMPORTANT THAN HER EDUCATION.
INSTEAD OF SHAMING GIRLS FOR THEIR BODIES, TEACH BOYS THAT GIRLS ARE NOT SEXUAL OBJECTS. ”
I will break down the problems with this type of thinking.
- This is the most important one. This type of thinking disregards boys. It tells them that girl’s rights to wear clothing they want, is more important than their education, by NOT giving boys a distraction free environment.
2. It ignores the fact that there are reasons why clothing that is revealing is inappropriate, and tells girls it’s perfectly okay to wear what you want no matter where you are. You wouldn’t wear a bikini at a funeral or at an office, so it doesn’t make sense why you would wear hot pants and a bikini top to school, but this is what these kids want.
3. It doesn’t prepare them for the real world or even University. When they get to University they are considered or used to be considered adults and as such they will be treated as such and wearing inappropriate clothing to a class could have serious problems.
4. This places responsibility on the men. Men have eyes and are visually stimulated. Women get angry with the boyfriends or husbands when the guy looks at another woman. Even for a few seconds, and now they expect them not to look when girls are showing to much skin in a place that they are supposed to be learning for their future.
I’m going to approach the idea from a different angle. If your so worried about wearing what you want to a place of learning then maybe your not focused on the right direction. Maybe, just maybe you should focus on your education and not worry about fighting dress codes.
