The girls then will need that certain make-up or certain style clothes to help them look good and also need to go on extreme diets to help them maintain their physique. These are all things the Orenstein was worried about with her daughter and yet she already knows that no one likes the fat people. Being taken back by this she knows that she never talks about her body weight or weight in general in front of her daughter so where could she have learned these cruel obsessions? It could be from her daughter attending school and other girls may not have a parent like Orenstein and do talk to children about weight and appearances without realizing that it could have potential harm to
Not only did a teacher write her up, but she had to go the nurse’s office, change clothes, and wear a baggy, bright shirt that said “dress code violator.” Natalie refused to wear the shirt and when she asked why she couldn’t wear what she had on since according to the rules, she wasn’t violating anything, the nurse answered like any other worker in an American school: “the yoga pants are too tight and revealing, and we just don’t want any distractions.” Ever since Natalie’s dress code violation, her school banned yoga pants and leggings. You would think these are made up stories, but these are actual school situations that have made headlines on news articles. Hillary Clinton once said, ‘human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.
I believe in naturalness. When I was little, all that my mother used on my hair was detangler and leave in conditioner. As I got older I grew to hate my hair more and more because of it’s frizzy curls. By the time I got to high school I got tired of straightening my hair everyday and I started to use gel in it but that still wasn’t cutting it for me.
A character I can relate Payton and Emma to is Stephanie from the book Chicken Soup for the Girl’s Soul. Stephanie got a headgear and she was ashamed of it because she thought that she was the only one who had problems. One day when her mom forced her to go out to the supermarket, she found out that the guy she liked also wore a headgear. She learned that trying out something new can lead to something good.
"Oh of course I 'll be the smartest one there madre, no silly boys will stop that," she lied as she kissed her mother 's forehead. "You pinheads better take care of my mother or I 'll beat your asnos," she said jokingly. "I 'll see you all on whatever break they give me." The brunette smiled. She then hopped in the back seat of the taxi and waved to her family as the taxi speed off.
Do you wear contacts? Well, when I was a freshman in high school my mother finally let me get contacts as long as I promised to take care of them. I thought all this meant was that I would destroy them or lose them I had no idea what it meant to "take care" of contacts. To my surprise, there were tons of rules. The eye doctor said to make sure I did not wear them to bed and to make sure I cleaned them with an enzymatic cleaner at least every few days.
It is no secret that the Dress codes target girls, to the dress codes being exposing bra straps, showing collarbone, wearing a simple tank top, dyeing hair, and piercings. When girl are told to be modest they are being sexualized. There should be nothing wrong with a girl wearing a comfortable shirt to school; but of course the shirt shows parts of the students’ collarbone, she cannot wear it again to school. For boys it’s simply your pants are too low pull them up and be on your way. On the other hand girls are taken out of their classes to call home for another pair of clothes.
I put that on then I went to my vanity to do my makeup. I would put on all the makeup on my face that honestly, I really didn 't need, but I wanted to look good for those guys at my school. When I was done with my makeup I went downstairs and grabbed some breakfast and went straight out of the house to go to school. When I finally got to school everyone would say hey and the guys would just stare at me. I don 't know if they were staring at me because they thought I was pretty or they were
I remember before actually getting to work Barbara asked me if I wanted something to drink. I said no almost immediately but more hesitantly because I thought I would pee my pants. That’s how nervous I was. My ‘’best friend’’ Paulina had on a headset and took a few orders from the drive through and made drinks at the same time and I thought that was so cool because I’d never seen that before. Everyone else did their jobs and I felt like I was getting in the way so Paulina gave me an extra headset out of the office and started to teach me how to take orders and all the shortcuts that a manager wouldn’t show me.
