Hey this is what I wore to school today and so tell me tell you the story of why I’m super pissed off.
My school has a rule that skirts must be finger tip length. I could rant about how that’s unfair to judge the length of a skirt by arms or sexualization of girls and their bodies being ridiculous but that’s not what I’m angry about specifically. I’m angry because the dress code gives immature boys a license to harass girls about what they are wearing.
Today I was leaving school and on the way out the door these two boys started following me
Boy1: hey girl is that skirt dress code
Me: (without looking back at them) yes
Boy1: girl that is not dress code
Boy2: bad girl breaking dress code. Come here and let me see if it’s dress code.
Me: (turning around but still walking away a bit faster) No.
Boy2: whatever hoe
They left after I got outside to the parking lot and were just annoying and immature. However they still made me uncomfortable and ‘boys will be boys’ is not an excuse for this behavior.
This is why I need feminism.
