CBC reports teen’s “tantrum” over dress code like it’s news because rape culture

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


A grade 10 student attending Essex District High School in Ontario has been suspended for protesting the school’s dress code.

The young lady told the CBC that she and several of her friends were sent home or punished after being told to change their shirts because their bra straps were showing.

To protest what she thought was an unfair rule, the young lady and her friends made posters calling the dress code “rape culture” and put them up around her school without seeking permission from the administration first.

Watch as I show you why - for once - I think the school is doing the right thing. I'll show you what the dress code actually says about how both boys and girls at the school should be dressing.

In CBC’s story about the young lady’s protest and subsequent suspension, they didn't tell you the full details of the dress code. Instead CBC breathlessly reported on a 15 year old’s interpretation of the dress code, and her feelings that it was unfair.

If you've ever met a 15 year old, you know they think everything is unfair.

This isn't a news story at all - it's a child's tantrum unchecked by their parents as reported in the state broadcaster because feminism and rape culture or something.

Whenever I see these kind of stories from the CBC I think “Oh crap, what has prince charming gone and done this time”.

How true that is about teens not being adults. Like children, everything revolves around them and their little world. Though there are responsible teens out there, many ruin it for them with their childish behaviour.

In New Zealand all secondary schools have uniforms. For my son, hair length must acceptable, he must be shaved, uniform must be kept in neat and tidy condition, shirts ironed, only black leather shoes allowed…..he may look like a mini business man, and doesn’t like his uniform but solves so many of the crazy issues going on in schools in Canada without dress codes. Rich and poor alike have to wear the same uniform to school. Those who have honors grades have stripes on their blazer and/or badges. Sports and other achievements are also marked with badges sewn on the blazers which serve to distinguish themselves from others.

Drew, IMO the mother is trying to be a best friend, she has lost perspective and understanding of her role as a mother. It seems to be a parenting trend…then these people cry when their children fail to launch, get into trouble and live the life of a perpetual adolescent.

Tammie i think the mother is ignorant and self important as well.
