There is a big debate about girls and their school uniforms whether or not girls wear their uniforms appropriately during school. There have been multiple cases about girls who have stood up for what they think is right when it comes to what they wear to school. One of them is about how one girl sued her school because the school officials did not comply to what she was saying about how what she was wearing was appropriate for her school uniform. I am not saying that it is just girls who get in trouble, but boys do not get in trouble as often.
There was an article about how some 8th grade students were pulled out of class because their school administrators that their outfits were a distraction to the boys. It was the hottest day of the year and they were told to cover up. Many parents questioned since when is skin that is on the human body a distraction. It is also about how they want to change the dress code, not shun the girls. I agree with this because girls are getting in trouble for what the guys are doing. The guys should be punished if they are not able to control themselves around girls.
There is another article about an 8-year old transgender child who is suing her school because she was prevented from using the girls restroom and was forced to wear boys uniform clothing. The school neglected to call her by the correct pronouns and name. “This case sends the message that in California we don’t tolerate this type of discrimination,” she said. The lawsuit says Nikki now attends a school in the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, which has affirmed her gender identity and is working closely with her parents. The family is asking for changes to the school’s policies and an unspecified amount in damages.” This is a different type of case, but she should not be treated differently and told to put on a different uniform because the school officials didn’t like it.
This has been a problem for even me and a lot of other girls at my school. We have been told not to wear our shorts shorter than our knee or we can no longer wear skirts because guys were looking up them. This is not our problem. This needs to be changed. We follow the uniform requirements, but we are constantly blamed because some guys don’t know how to control themselves.
