School Dress Codes Aren't Sexist

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

A Texas student posted a video on Twitter of her school's dress code video skit. She thought it was sexist and appalling that it only included girls, and now the video's gone viral.

I think that the video was fair. Women should learn to be women and not dress like they are going to the gym or going to bed. Have enough respect for your teachers and the institution of education and dress like a decent adult.

This is why we need to bring back finishing school and etiquette.

Went to a boys school, wore uniform (school blazer, school tie,) once a week, and semi formal (dress slacks, collared button up shirt) the rest of the week. School six days a week, and caned if you messed up. Men were addressed as “Sir” and women as “Ma’am.” That was respect, taught early on. Then, as an adult, you carry that on, and people have respect for you, and if your an a-hole like a lefty troll, you could dress for respect, but open your mouth and remove all doubt that your are not worthy of respect. Dress like a hobo, or “going to bed” and you need not even open your mouth, you automatically get no respect.

I like that reference of dressing like they’re “going to bed”… That speaks volumes about where millions of young minds are pre-occupied these days… “Thanks” to the entertainment industry for some four decades now…

Speaking of inclusiveness, how about showing a girl in Saudi Arabia being whipped for showing too much ankle. They penalty is 80 lashes.
