At my school, it seems like girls cannot wear anything. If we get dress coded for shorts, our counselors don’t measure them to see if they’re in dress code. They just tell you to change. Last year I missed over an hour of my education because I was dress coded for shorts that where in dress code. The counselors didn’t measure my shorts and I waited in a classroom behind a desk for an hour. My dad measured my shorts, and they where a dollar bills length from my knee.

Girls got dress coded for holes right above their knees, bra straps, shorts, shirts, crop tops, etc. And most of the time the teachers that dress coded girls weren’t in dress code themselves. 

These teachers and counselors only dress code girls with thicker thighs and bigger butts. Any time a girl with smaller thighs got dress coded, they get sent back to class in the same thing. Teachers will only measure a girls shorts in front of classrooms if they have smaller thighs. If a girl has bigger thighs, they get sent to the office. All while saying the dress code is not discriminatory. 

Something else that bothers me is the over sexualizing of young female bodies. We get told our butts, curves, and breasts will distract boys. We are not responsible for our body or how it was made. That’s just genetics. Some of us got bigger butts and breasts, and more curves. Some of us got smaller breasts and butts, and less curves. Either way, we get told we are a distraction and we need to leave the room.   

Teachers tell us to stop talking if we have any discussion about the dress code. They tell us it Isn't unfair or one sided. They say that if they showed up to school in a bikini they would get fired. We aren’t asking to be able to wear bikinis. Were asking to be able to wear regular, comfortable clothes.
