OMG not again

Yep another student is in tears because they wont let her wear what she wants instead of going by dress code of the school...this happened in Michigan.

From what I read in the article it say you can wear tights, leggings,  jeggings (jean leggings) if they are covered by a skirt or garment that comes to mid thigh.

instead of going by the rules the student and her parents want to let the world know how badly their daughter is being treated.

this time the key words were "may be distracting to boys"...

Well, duh...even the longest part of this top is not mid thigh, which means it doesn't meet the requirements of the dress code. 

I can see that this teen looks upset and has probably been crying about the whole thing, but dammit she knew when she left for school that she was pushing the limit and she did it anyway. I think her mom wants her to be the exception to the rule, because she is an "a" student. I guess. Sheesh.

I wear leggings and yoga pants at home and if I go out, I put on a top that comes almost to my knees.  Now granted, I'm a senior citizen with no desire to show my posterior, but still I do not believe that leggings are slacks. It's just wrong.  Stop doing it and you will not be sent home.

When you are of age and want to express yourself through your wardrobe, knock yourself out. Until then just freaking stop it.


Dammit, Dammit, Dammit.

We have reached a time when children are always right...always entitled to have their way...and if they are required to abide by dress codes and do not want to do so, Mommy and Daddy pull them out of that school and either put them into a more permissive school or let them be "home schooled and attend classes on the Internet".
I am so over all these spoiled brats. The kid knew she was wrong and she decided to do it because she has always been told that she was special...she is, after all, an American princess! The only saving grace in this photo is that she wasn't wearing a short skirt without undergarments just to prove how mean and unfair the dress code could be.
Leggings and yoga pants worn in public are tacky...even when worn by women who are not "jail bait". If men wore tights and leggings which outlined and emphasized their genitals, there would be a public outcry..they should wear decent trousers or jeans. Same holds for females.
Aren't I fun???
