but women should be allowed to wear what they want and not have to worry about men trying to get with them

It’s called a Dress Code and it’s for everyone, it’s not just about women, what about men??They want to wear stuff too, without being harassed.

Women and Men have different body parts and a whole different body, of course they are not going to have the same dress codes. TF :roll_eyes:

I’ve never seen 1 guy get dress coded at my school, but they are wearing cut-off tees that show their whole chest. I haven’t seen them be harassed either

One read the post above.

Just because YOU don’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. This thread is about Dress Codes in general, you are just worried about your fake- feminist party of dress codes.

This may be true, however, she’s right. Men are less likely to get dress coded. It’s less likely where you would see or hear about a man getting harassed about what he is wearing.

Most, but not all men will prance around showing way too much skin and never get told that they need to be covered up.

Also, there is no need for that. Everybody is entitled to have their own opinion.

y’all are fr just draggin a 14 year old :laughing:

doesn’t change the fact that women are more likely to get dress coded than men. That’s not feminism, it’s fact.

My school personally doesn’t have a dress code as we wear uniforms!
But I find it really annoying when I hear about the rules for dress codes, there are about 10 rules for girls then 1 for the boys. Like!? OoOh are my straps distracting?

I’m pretty sure men do get harrassed by women when they wear whatever they want. Revealing clothing at work/school is more likely to cause false accusations against men and that can damage a man’s life.

I’ll never understand why people make a huge deal about bra straps. Trust me, I felt discouraged when this horrible aunt was telling me to stop wearing sleeveless clothing but I still carried on because I refused to let her win.
But yeah, I don’t get why people make a huge deal about it, it’s just a strap.

True that. No one gets horny over shoulders! Annoys the hell out of me when anyone gets offended over shoulders. Especially radical religious groups I’ve came across since they give me the evils for that.

I think dress codes in schools are so dumb. Uniforms I get, having basic rules of don’t be a stripper at school I get, however the dress code rules in America are insane. Girls can’t even show shoulders. Wtf? I’m sorry but if you’re getting turned on by shoulders you’re the one with problem. Also! What is the point? All you’re doing is sexualzing young girls, teaching guys it is a woman’s job to cover up so they don’t distracted, and that it is totally acceptable for you to be treated as an object as opposed to a person. This is the kind of behaviour that promotes sexual abuse and controlling relationships. It teaches girls that it is their fault if they get in trouble for what they’re wearing, and teaches guys that girls are only to be seen in a sexual light and that if they dress “inappropriately” she’s asking to be taken advantage of. An example I can remember is that not too long ago, a few months back, there was a girl who was taken advantage of sexually at a party, and one of the questions asked in court was “well what did your underwear look like?” Clothing is not consent, why was this a question asked. It is a question asked at every trial “What were you wearing?” like that is okay. Like that validates someone abusing and mentally scarring you for life. This is the kind of behaviour it makes acceptable.

I agree, although I like dress codes, we should not force everybody to dress in such way. Not everybody is like me and likes covering up. If shoulders make you horny…you gotta problem.

Dress codes are forcing people to do dumb things like not showing shoulders, and limit people from expressing themselves the way they want. I love dress codes that are fair…because we do not want to see all that cleavage.

It’s not just men controlling women, but sometimes it is. I went to an all-girls school, run mostly by women, and on casual clothes day we had dress codes.

Overall, I think some dress code rules are dumb…even though personally I love dress codes.

So we don’t have dress codes at our school. (naturaly though if you come in here walking naked it won’t be appriciated) but for work I find it only natural you need to wear a uniform/certian outfit/drescode for the reasons people metioned in this post but also so that you’re easier to find for the custumors. I’m somesone who doesn’t like uniforms/dress codes but I can also see where schools are coming from they learn you that you have to wear a uniform for you’re future job and that you need to look presentable. that you can’t have you’re uniform off you’re schoulders sounds pretty reasonable to me. see it this way if you where a custumor who would you prefer? someone who shows of her shoulders making her/him look unprofessional or someone who looks has ther uniform right and doesn’t show unnessacary body parts? I personally would go for the second one as that person looks like someone who is serious about everything and also has a professional look. as much as I’m happy that I don’t have to wear them I know that I’m going to find work clothing a problem in the future because I’m not used to it. so I guess I’m alright with dress codes. but I prefer not to wear them.

I hope you understood my point :sweat_smile:
