  1. You need a dress code for school. You can’t just have shorts up to your waist where you can’t even see them. I’m fine if it’s slightly above the knees, but having the shorts by your waist isn’t for comfort, it’s for attention. Please just be respectful and don’t create a negative image for yourself

  2. trust me the boys are all for girls showing some skin………….not sure how that will affect the learning process with all the boys having a woody all day though

  3. Dress codes just end up being bullshit. Unless its really outlandish people should where what they want to where. I love how every person at my school wheres different things everyday and how i have that choice in the morning. Dress codes really should only exist to keep the worst stuff out of the school. I really think as a kid you only get so many freedoms and being able to where what you want is one of the only things you get to decide.

  4. LEt women dress however hell they feel like what's dam problem if people cant control them selfs cuz see some skin then should look in to that person.
    .

  5. This isn't a dress code it's not even close. Try being at a school that has a real dress code certain color polos and certain color dress pants a belt a tucked shirts for the guys. For girls same thing with the shirt but skirts are aloud no belt or tucked shirt that's aloud but is against the dress code. I'm glad I'm already done with school, it truly was pointless you don't learn anything and dress code which is meant to prevent distractions does nothing but show who wants to spend $50 on a shirt and who doesn't.

  6. Do not pretend like schools are actual institutions "learning" designed to prepeare kids for adult life through the education they get. Schools are here, since the 1800's, to indoctrinate children to satisfy the needs of the 1%.

    Guess why there is such a big emphasis on "getting" a job and pointless mathematical problems instead of social skills development and emotional intelligence.

  7. Yeah I would say school uniforms will solve this problem don't let teenagers and sjw teachers dictate rules to otherwise they'll go into life completely unprepared for reality, maybe the teachers need a school uniform as well🤔

  8. How stupid to say it’s rape coulter do you men wearing short shorts and complaining about ppl hitting on them no shit if u wear short shorts your begging for attention are you a teenager or a pornstar smh

  9. school: let’s make a video to help show our rules for dress code

    random student: 1:33 RAPE CULTURE
    😂😂😂wtfffff

  10. My high school basically didn't have any dress code. As long as we weren't totally naked, they didn't seem to care … but this was over 30 years ago.

    That said, I've worked in companies that had the OPPOSITE problem. Men were supposed to wear suits and ties even in blistering weather, while women could wear shorts and sandals and sleeveless blouses and call it "fashion".

  11. So basically women can be objectifying towards men but a women teacher can't be towards women? Imagine the outcry if a guy teacher made this… Lol the world's bloody broken

  12. Fuck you feminazis. Grab an m16 and hot the ground. Until you close the gender death gap your concerns mean nothing.

  13. They want the girls to be less distracting to the boys but girls in the class altogether is distracting to boys, well that's how it was for me. Didn't matter what they wore I was just aroused by looking at them.

  14. The day b4 school started they were all at the swimming pool in bathing suits and nobody cared or got too excited.But athletic shorts the next day at school is distracting?When i was in school half the schools wore skirts and dresses shorter than cheerleader skirts everyday and nobody lost their mind.None of those girls were dressed bad,too much leftist control in society.

  15. South Texas should annex North Texas. Y’all wild too much. Like I hate the dress code at my school but they don’t make a weird ass video like that tf.

  16. No matter what, uniform or not. Almost every girl is still focused on, “Oh what accessories and sweater should I wear to look better then the rest.” Or “Who rocks the uniform better? Jessie or Sam?” No matter if they take anything off, it will always be the same, if guys get boners by looking at us girls in shorts or a tank top. Not out problem, they are basically wired to get one if they are sexually frustrated. I’m sick of the double standards! If girls wear shorts at Im a 95° weather, they would get pulled into the office and asked to change. But if guys wear shorts, it’s normal? Excuse me, kids wear mini skirts right? They won’t get really punished since it’s part of the outfit. But as soon as they grow up, they are told not wear anything small? Wow, choose one. Don’t make kids confused. Little boys get boners but, hey. No one cares until you are old enough to do something. People think it’s wrong to dress with shorts to school and a tank top. Focus on both genders and make it RIGHT. Because some males are gay, and dress revealing. But hey, they are still boys so no one cares.

  17. People are so fucking offended over anything anymore. Get a fucking backbone. Maybe I should sue Victoria Secret for only selling women's stuff. That's offensive to men then right

  18. Last year when we had a principal
    (I go to a small private school in a small rural town)
    Anyways my principal last year had talked to the girls about their shorts and other things like that if the were past the dress code and the teachers didn’t seem to mind (they’re all females) anyways I never saw him talk to the boys about anything if he did hem I didn’t know anything about it. So this year we don’t have a principal and one day I wore shorts not quite to the mid thigh and I never got talked to about it.

  19. I came straight to this video after I got dress coded for wearing green leggings and and
    NASA sweatshirt that completely covered up my stomach.

    My school is completely screwed.

  20. I go to a school with uniform and I just want to ask if they don’t like tight clothes why don’t some schools like oversized clothes? What’s wrong with wearing oversized t-shirts and sweaters etc I don’t understand.

  21. Yes, it may suck really really bad for girls, but just think about how offended guys are by dresscode. Just hear me out. When they tell girls to cover up thier bodies, its like telling boys they cant handle themselves around shoulders or thighs, when in reality, they can.

  22. I got dress coded my third week of school (by my English teacher(male) and I went to the principal (female) and she told me
    “It’s hard for you to find shorts due to the way your body is (my body I petite) so, I’ll let you off.”
    By the way..who tf gets turned on by legs??

  23. The thing is, boys aren’t the ones distracted over shoulders….. it’s the teachers who are getting distracted over shoulders because they spent time focusing on what girls wear all the time. Lmao

  24. DISCLAIMER this is a very long tangent
    DISCLAIMER TWO this is not meant to insult anybody involved
    DISCLAIMER THREE nothing really, just wanted to tell you to have a nice day

    Can I tell you all about my first day of middle school? I was 11 years old, terrified, and overwhelmingly self-conscious. We all gathered into the auditorium for an assembly about school rules. Basic stuff, like no weapons, being respectful, and…the dress code. The part every girl dreads, as we are objectified and judged by our almighty administrators.

    So. Like I said, it’s the first day of school. Assembly in the auditorium. Our principal got up on stage. She speaks way too loudly into the microphone. She goes over everything she wanted to cover and then…THE DRESS CODE. In big bolded letters on the screen showing the handbook page. She reads out to us as we follow along on our paper copies (which I should add, by the way, is a waste of paper since they were showing us it on the screen) the different violations:
    (Just so you know, I’m paraphrasing most of these but not adding anything to make them seem worse)
    • Clothes that are “revealing or sexually suggestive as determined by school administration.”
    Great. A bunch of administrators that already creep us out will be staring at our bodies to decide whether or not we will be sent to the guidance counselor or nurse. As if we need therapy or medical treatment for wearing clothing that makes us feel confident.
    • “Tank tops without undergarments, spaghetti straps, halter tops, low-cut tops,” or shirts “not meeting the top of one’s pants.”
    This one just makes me laugh. This is such a double standard, since I see male students commit these violations on a day-to-day basis, yet who gets called out? The girl just doing her work, minding her own business, who just happens to be wearing a dress with thin straps as it is 90 degrees out that day. I am not saying anything negative against male students, before anyone thinks that. They have been taught to ignore these rules as they so obviously are not meant to apply to them.
    • “Loosely and/or low waist pants/shorts, revealing undergarments or suggesting the same, are strictly prohibited.”
    Okay, so why was I told in fifth grade to tuck my shirt into my pants because it was “covering my shorts,” but the boy next to me who shorts were sagging enough to see more than just the waistband of his underwear was able to skip on by?
    • “Ripped garments that expose skin above the knee are strictly prohibited. Ripped jeans with leggings underneath are acceptable.”
    Okay, let me just say this: this rule is not strictly prohibited. No one really cares. But I want to ask, where can I find comfortable clothing in my size, in my budget, in my style, that has rips only beneath the knee?

    There are more rules, but those are just like no hats or sunglasses or clothing with inappropriate pictures or words on it.

    The principal then started doing a “dress code catwalk” where eighth graders who signed up (for some unknown reason) came out on stage sporting outfits that were against the school dress code. She literally had us look them up and down, then called on someone to say what was wrong with the way they were dressed.

    So that’s great.

    My first experience with the dress code was, I think, in fourth or fifth grade. A little nine year old walking with her class to lunch, not caring about her dress, just wanting to consume all the nasty pizza they had to offer. But NOPE. The teacher decided my dress was too inappropriate for school so she tapped me promptly on the shoulder to tell me that my dress had spaghetti straps. So, my nine year old self was NOT thinking, “oh damn I just got caught trying to seduce all these fourth/fifth graders with my bare shoulders.” I was thinking, “wait, what? Am I in trouble?! DON’T CRY DON’T CRY DON’T CRY!” Then she asked me if I had a sweater or something I could put over top. (Keep in mind, this was in late spring and I was wearing a sundress.) I said, “No.” At this point I was holding back tears as I was always the teacher’s favorite-I got good grades (straight “e’s” in my report card if anyone knows the elementary grading policy we have around here), I never got sent to the principal’s office, I never misbehaved, nothing. So basically being interrogated by my teacher at this point was very overwhelming for me.

  25. it’s honestly too funny to be true.
    so in my school here is the 6th grade girls dress code:
    don’t show shoulders
    you have to wear a bra
    your bra cannot show
    no spaghetti straps
    no basketball shorts
    no nails painted
    no yoga leggings
    nothing that defines the butt
    no showing the back
    no showing the stomach
    no ripped jeans
    no hoodies
    socks can’t go up to knee
    no see through clothing
    shorts have to go past the knee
    no showing underwear
    why?
    because it’s a “distraction” to boys. my school is literally taking my education away from me when I make one mistake on my clothing. schools are supposed to be teaching boys to be mature and appropriate not baby them and let them have an education!! girls have so much ontheir shoulders and it’s not fair because everything is a distraction to boys!! godddd

    boys dress code:
    no nail polish
    no makeup
    no earrings

    why?
    because my school is sexist and rude. they think boys can’t wear makeup or earrings or paint their nails.

  26. Well the girls are the ones that mostly break the dress code because most of the rules are geared towards them

  27. Yeah! Because me and my best guy friend broke dress code, went to all the same classes, but did he get dress coded no! I did! And we were in shirts that broke dress code, and when I got dress coded I told the person that he was wearing the same shirt and he said oh ok and told me to change when I asked why he said he could see my bra (to see my bra you have to be LOOKING because these shirts aren’t see through)

  28. Tbh that’s how my school is as well they only enforce dress code to the females in my school and not the males.

  29. Not offensive at all. Boys make your own video. Girl, boy whatever follow the dress code. Stop feeling entitled to get offended.
