it’s shocking how everything on tumblr is so selective and always so focused on the US. for example every year around 9/11 tumblr is flooded with posts about it although it was 13 years ago. but whenever horrible things happen somewhere else in the world at this very moment hardly anyone mentions it. it’s really sad to see that not just in every day media some lives are more important than others but that the same also happens on tumblr…
“At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?”
Parent of a female teen whose school banned leggings
#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators
^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)
This parent is right. The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers. Have I got that right? (rhetorical)
