A blog where I reblog a lot of things, post my own art (Which can now be found at Reedart and Reeddoodles, though I still Reblog it here sometimes), and sometimes actually use it to talk about my life! |

Oh, and I over-use emotes. And I'm a little spacey.

Just last week, a 7th grader with a curvy build came home upset about this. She had worn an outfit with a skirt and leggings, and in the morning, a teacher had said to her, “Cute outfit.” But then her homeroom teacher pulled her aside at the end of the day and said, “You know, another girl could get away with that outfit, but you should not be wearing that. I’m going to dress code you.” Juliet Bond and the child’s mom were discussing the incident, not certain if the message to the child was ‘you’re too sexy’ or ‘you’re too fat.’
The kids also report that the teachers have been discussing ‘appropriate body types for leggings and yoga pants and inappropriate body types for yoga pants and leggings.’
Bond says, “This is concerning because it is both slut shaming and fat shaming. If a girl is heavy or developed, the message is that she cannot wear certain clothes.” Neither is acceptable. We should not be sexualizing kids, nor should we be making them feel that they can wear leggings as long as they remain stick thin. Bond asks, “Why are the girls being pulled out of class to have assemblies on whether they are wearing the right clothes, while the boys remain in class, learning and studying?”
I don’t have a problem with a school having a dress code; in fact, I attended a school that didn’t allow jeans or shorts or shirts without collars, but I do have a problem when the dress code is discriminately based on gender and body type. There is a big difference between telling all students to dress respectfully and telling curvy girls to dress in a way that doesn’t distract boys.
YUP! All the girls in my school were kept after weekly assembly a handful of times to be reminded that it was our responsibility to follow the dress code as modestly as possible because we were a “distraction” to the boys. I remember hoping that the boys would be held back after the next assembly to get a talking to about blatantly playing with their junk through their pockets in class but no dice. I guess having to see my classmate scratch himself for 40 minutes out of my peripheral isn’t distracting enough to merit a comment but my inability to find a blouse that covers my chest fully and can be tucked in is damaging to our school’s legacy.
How is this 2014 and little girl’s are getting slut-shamed.
