Pants over yoga pants. At the top of the page are two pictures of me in different pants. Let me tell you a little about my high school experience with clothing.
When I was a Freshman and Sophomore, I was groped and cat-called and treated like a sexual object both inside and outside of classrooms.
As I walked through the hall, I remember Senior boys grabbing at my derriere and whistling at me. I remember classmates yelling across the room explicit instructions of what they would like to do to me.
Junior year, I showed up to the first day of school wearing this: A new dress code had been enacted over the summer, and when I walked into my first classroom, the teacher loudly announced that I was going to have to go home.
Because my clothing was inappropriate. The teacher that called me out in front of the class completely humiliated me, to the point of tears. At that time, the dean came into our classes and explained that the boys had a hard time paying attention when girls were showing skin.
I remember being terrified to reach to the top of my locker because if a teacher happened to be watching and the tiniest sliver of skin was exposed, I knew I risked being sent home and humiliated.
Did the cat-calling and groping stop because of the dress-code enforcement? Did teachers even really seem to care when they saw it happening?
Not as much as they cared about the dress code. I want to tell you, as a former student what I am feeling right now when I look back at my high school experience.
The emotions I am feeling now, eleven years since graduating, are still just as fresh. For being female and having the gall to put on clothing that suggested they were female.
I was the problem.
The other girls and I were made to feel like our bodies were dangerous. We were not protected. I hope you can understand that you are not protecting your students with this dress code.
You are shaming them and teaching the girls that they are dangerous, and the boys that they are weak and must be protected.
You are teaching girls that if their pants are too tight, if too much skin is visible above their knees, if their shoulders are bare, they deserve to be punished. You are telling them to go home and not come back until they look differently.
The logic you are using fits perfectly into that mentality. Girls, cover up to protect everyone. I wear yoga pants every day to work. Because I work from home and I can. Why do I wear yoga pants, you ask? To seduce my non-existent male co-workers and distract them from their jobs?
And because I can. And I still get paid. And I still advance in my career.Nov 02, · Kids' picture books and coffee-table books such as Peter Menzel's riveting Material World: A Global Family Portrait can bring diverse circumstances and emotions to life for all rutadeltambor.com: Elizabeth Foy Larsen.
I corroborate everything Marc said about the skies over Tucson yesterday, 4/26/ And, the day before, 4/25/18, the sky was "clear" for much of the day; in the early afternoon the lines started to appear, and by late afternoon it was the same artificial cloud cover that always appears after this activity.
