This school's dress code is inherently affecting girl's such as pulling them out of class when they have ripped jeans that have rips in the thigh, we all very clearly see this is over-sexualization of YOUNG GIRLS. Keep in mind in middle school they are of the ages 12 to 14. Not to mention that my not even pulling them to the side when they get dress coded adds humiliation, may decrease self-esteem, AND can even lead to bullying by peers.

In general, a lot of these rules oversexualize literal minors. Such rules are like no rips in jeans over your thigh, spaghetti straps not allowed on dresses or shirts, and having shorts or skirts, not under fingertips.

A common refute to this is that " it is a distraction to the boys or male instructors if the girls have thighs or shoulders showing" there are SEVERAL PROBLEMS in this refute first, if the boys are distracted by shoulders or natural body parts, just teach them manners. Young girls are not quoted on quote "distractions". this is also very dehumanizing when you describe young girls like this.

We do not want to "show off our bodies" at school we just want to be comfortable in an environment where we are supposed to be comfortable and not constantly over-sexualized.
