Girls are being sexualized. That's not in any way okay. We are young and we should never be shamed for wearing soemthing just because some people decide to look at us. It condones rape culture. It teaches young girls that we should cover up in order to avoid being sexualized. Like It's our fault that people can't control themselves. And the guys really didn't care until they made it such a big deal. And not everything fits everyone the same so to say fingertip length could be booty shorts on one person with shorter arms, and knee length for someone with longer arms. It is unfair and disgusting. I had a teacher say to me that my outfit of high waisted biking shorts and a crop top ( no skin was exposed) was very unprofessional and I was in a professional environment. Which is clearly not the case. Furthermore, I am a student,I do not work there. I do not need to look professional. This has to be changed or girls will always be ashamed of their bodies and scared that they will be raped, and boys will be taught that if a girl is wearing "revealing" clothing, that they are asking for it by wearing such attire.

I honestly think its bc they believe a boy should have short hair and a girl should have long hair. I dont agree with that. A school tried to make a girl make her hair grow faster since it was cut short. she had something get stuck in it. You cant get a motorized toy helicopter out of hair besides to cut it. Schools will do anything pretty much to make you follow THEIR beliefs. My school is just selective on who they dress code and sexist. They never dress code the guys even when they wear the same damn thing a girl wears. Ive noticed that my schools assistant principal selects who she dress codes. If someone is wearing a strapless jumper and so is another but one has bigger breasts than the other, she will dress code the girl with bigger breasts. Same thing goes for the booty. If she got bigger cake, dress coded because they have to do it to fingertip length. Some women have long arms. People cant control that just like people cant control their genetics. A school cant make you do squat if its over something ridiculous. Its a good thing your speaking up. Im also speaking up about my schools dress code. Just like there, the handbook hasnt been updated for years here. It really says no spike jewlery. I see kids wearing that daily with nothing said to them. Ive also seen a girl straight up walk into the building in just a sports bra and jeans. Spaghetti strap bra. Dress code says "3 fingers wide" i got dress coded over a tank top strap that was just a centimeter too small. What if you have fat fingers? They need to take things into consideration.
