Dress codes ¨...reinforce that girls are expected to act to a different standard than boys, and that boys are incapable of controlling themselves around girls,” said the Huffington Post. For example, in some schools girls have to wear a one-piece in the pool but guys can go shirtless. Dress codes also limit
The editorial School dress codes reinforce the message that woman’s bodies are dangerous written by Laura Bates, brings to our attention, the sexism that surrounds the application of dress codes. In the article Bates discusses how, although there are rules for male and female students, it is mainly girls who are punished for dress code violations, and the same dress code rules do not apply for both sexes. Boys are allowed to wear athletic shorts but girls are not, in some cases girls are not allowed to show their legs at all. Alongside the sexism in dress codes is the sexual objectifying and public shaming of young girls, who are told that showing their legs while wearing skirts is distracting to the male faculty; and being publically shamed by being pulled out of class, put into isolated rooms to continue their work, or being sent home altogether. Bates points out
Many kids have changed because of dress codes and because of wearing uniforms. In this, I feel like many kids are being changed by dress codes and uniforms. I think schools shouldn’t have to have a dress codes and a uniform because i think dress codes and uniforms are a bad idea to have in
Many student argue that a forced manner of dress is a infaction of their First Amendment rights (“School”). Meaning that the rules restrict them from doing what the first amendment says they can do. Other people argue that dress codes send the wrong messages to students. They declare that forcing students to wear similar clothing tells students that they cannot be trusted to make their own decisions. In the United States, parents spend
The student wearing it would have to wear it all day, the goal of this is too embarrass the student so much that the students would not break the rules again. This can cause bullying, and a complaint from parents that make the school look
but I do not think that I have been giving my best even though I try. I am not the only one in danger but the female students at that school are in danger to. I am not only scared for myself but I fear for them too. I have seen the female students get sexually assaulted in my class and the TEACHER would not do anything.
Some deem others who do not wear the most fashionable clothes unpopular. In fact, according to the website Daily Mail, “children are so heavily influenced by brands that they bully or shun classmates who do not keep up with fashions and logos” (Clark). For example, in Heather Havrilesky’s essay “Bobos”, she discusses conflicts in school with fellow classmates treating her differently and ridiculing her because the shoes she normally bought were not the name brand shoes everyone else bought (Havrilesky 34). This is merely one example illustrating people being viewed differently and judged because of a misunderstanding of what normal is. In hopes to solve such problems, some schools even implemented school uniforms.
2.2.2. Hostility in The Great Gatsby That the novel shows certain hostility towards women is seen also in other female characters of the novel, namely Jordan Baker and Myrtle Willson. According to Parkinson, every time when the women of The Great Gatsby make an effort to move outside the social conventions of their class and all three suffer for it (92): Myrtle Wilson is ripped open and destroyed; Jordan Baker seems to have lost not only her integrity but also her femininity and Daisy is tempted three times to break out, but each time is easily dissuaded, and returns to her captive position, retaining it finally through the collusion of Gatsby and Nick, who do not reveal that she was driving the car that night but was unable to control the powerful vehicle (92). Myrtle Wilson and
Students are ashamed of having a dark complexation. This is because they are constantly teased with prejudicial treatment. As a teen I had to deal with boys not being attracted to me because I was of the darker complexation. They would choose the girls who were light skin or white because those were the girls who were considered pretty. This is a form of colorism, impacting a student education and wellbeing.
Dress code Belleville West has had a dress code since 2002 and students and parents have hated it . The students from west think it is a waste of time and the nonsense it has for them. Most students think it is a appearance or even to try to reduce violence. Mostly male student think is it because of women student, and why there is a dress code. “There is a dress code so people won 't wear stupid and inappropriate things to school,” Senior, Keyairre Gaston said.
Would the honor Code really be worth all the examples of division among student body and faculty that I talked about. The answer is No, it wouldn’t be, because Fairmont Heights need a balance and it has it. Students keep to themselves and let other students do their own thing and deal with their own problems. The balance is key to the continuation of Fairmont Heights social order and without it, things would be much worse in the the eyes of students like
At the start of ‘Never Let Me Go’ readers get the impression that the guardians are bad, Kathy even going as far as saying that the students ‘were all pretty scared of her’ when talking about one of her guardians Miss Emily. We get this impression because if a student if scared of one of their teachers then something is definitely wrong and there isn’t any evidence at the start of the book to prove otherwise. However as readers read on they can tell that actually the guardians are the good ones. The students once thought that that Madame was ‘afraid’ of them. It’s not until later on when Madame starts ‘sobbing after the encounter with Kathy that we learn she has a heart.
This frame was Satrapi 's first encounter with the guardians, it goes to show that it 's very dangerous out in Tehran for women and that if you don 't follow the dress code expectation as a women it could lead to you being reprimanded by the government, then, as well as now it isn 't too good. Based upon Satrapi 's behavior we see that she indeed is a "natural rebel" because it 's not like she didn 't know the expectations that were placed on her because of her sex. This foreshadows the Satrapi we will know later on in the book as far as what she will say and do
