School dress code is a big part of rape culture. The idea that women have to be dressed accordingly so that males can “learn without distractions” is absurd and demeaning to women. Boys are not animals that have this uncontrollable urge to look and focus only on a girl who wearing spaghetti straps. Imagine being called to the teacher’s desk and being told your shirt is too “revealing”. Why do teachers have to be staring at girls during class in the first place? Teach math to students and stop staring at the a teenaged girl’s body. If a teacher honestly can’t focus on the subject because a 17 year old girls is wearing a short skirt, then that teacher doesn’t belong in a highschool setting. Dress codes are full of double standards. Girls are far more likely to be dress coded than boys. This is a result of society viewing women as objects instead of human beings. Teachers will remove a smartphone if it is distracting a student. Oddly enough, teachers will send a girl to the office to be dress coded and given “more appropriate” clothing because boys can’t focus when a girl is wearing short shorts in the blazing heat. Girls are constantly falling behind in class because the education of a male is apparently more important than a females. That is the message society puts out when it obligates a girl to leave class to change so that the boys in the class don’t get distracted from the class topic. Boys are rarely dress coded for wearing shorts that are above the knee (a recent fashion trend). One can find a plethora of stories on social media of unfair dress coding incidents. Such as a boy sagging his pants but the girl with the bra outline gets dress coded and sent home. Males are constantly breaking dress code even here at mountain view but rarely, if ever, does one hear about a boy being dress coded for his obviously visible underwear or wearing tank tops, which girls are constantly told to avoid. In 90 degree weather a girl wants wear what is comfortable and won’t give them heat stroke.
