She defends herself by explaining how it is common to say the word and that “everybody at school” uses it. Scout tries to use this to her advantage to get out of school, showing she doesn’t necessarily care what the word means but also showing that people in her world use the word often. The people she's around most likely don’t understand the full definition of the word and obviously are just copying their parents who say the word often.

These changes have been met with both positive and negative comments from parents as well as the pupils themselves, prompting the question: Are gender-neutral school uniforms the best way forward? Or are they a terrible idea that do more damage than good?

People know that Stargirl is different, Stargirl teaches me that being myself is perfect. She wears different clothes, she meditates, she does what makes her content and from my knowledge teenagers don’t usually do those things.
