she was dressed modestly to begin with though wtf
But obviously girl knees are so much more psychologically problematic to a developing adolescent than watching adults wield and flex the ability to humiliate powerless children with the excuse that the knees of children are inherently sexually stimulating
Christ, what is going on in America with this fucking dress code stuff I see everywhere.
I’m Australian where we wear a school uniform. Throughout all my school years in summer every girl wore a short-sleeved tunic, with a v-neck, a zipper down the front and it was well above the knee. It was mid-thigh length, we often wore it shorter. You could even call it a mini-dress. And from what I’ve seen of school girls today, it hasn’t changed. The only ‘dress code’ we had relating to the uniform was that we had to wear proper safe school shoes.
And there was never any harassment, there was never any of this ‘the guys can’t control themselves because they can see our knees or something’ shit. The guys hardly noticed, because it was so normal, and, more importantly, an issue wasn’t constantly being made of what people wore by the school.
Because that’s part of the problem, as far as I can see, the more the adults at the schools make an issue of it, the more of an issue it becomes for the guys in the school, and they start to believe that the most important thing about a girl is not what she thinks or feels or says, but merely whether she’s dressed ‘appropriately’. And if she’s not dressed ‘appropriately’ then it’s okay to go to town on her. Shame her. Humiliate her. Do whatever the fuck you want to her.
I swear to god, how can a country just constantly fuck up everything so much. WTF is America?!!!
