So many girls are not allowed to wear tank tops or any article of clothing that shows your shoulders. Nobody is distracted by shoulders. Boys are allowed to wear tank tops so why cant girls?  

Can we get this petition to 250 supporters? 

School dress codes go way too far and we need to work together to stop it.

===============================================================

"I believe that girls should be able to show shoulders. The most common argument against this is that it's "distracting", And I believe that this is a completely wrong way to think about things. Girls are not responsible for anyone else getting distracted by their clothing choice. The person who got distracted is the only one responsible, Because they are making the choice to look at a girl's shoulders instead of working or paying attention to the teacher. 
Another common argument is that it's inappropriate for girls to have bare shoulders. Personally, I just don't see it. Bare shoulders aren't "sexual" or anything like that. They're just shoulders. It's not like having boobs falling out of your shirt or wearing a pair of shorts so short that you can see their butt. Having bare shoulders is equal to having bare arms; it's perfectly fine. If you feel comfortable in what you're wearing, You should be able to wear it to school. Unless your boobs are hanging out of your top or your butt is visible under your shorts or skirt, Pretty much any article of clothing is appropriate for school. Schools shouldn't be so strict with dress codes. Young people should be free to express themselves through clothing choice, And not confined by stupid rules about bare shoulders. The rules should be simple: Cover your genitals, Don't wear t-shirts with inappropriate imagery/inappropriate slur words/swear words on them, And dress in whatever is comfortable for you in the current weather conditions. Screw uniforms, Screw codes, Dress however you want." -Amber Moloskihe
