There is a school in New York which recently got a new dress code. It states that girls can’t wear tops exposing their shoulders, stomachs, lower backs, bras, and underwear. The students decided to rebel and have what they called ‘Slutty Wednesday’. One student said, “A lot of the classrooms don’t have a/c’s and when it is 80 degrees outside and it is really hot, it’s perfectly OK to show a little skin.”
First of all, I went to a public school in Alabama. If you’ve never visited the south, then you wouldn’t know that the temperatures are often in the upper 90s by May. I wore khaki pants and a polo shirt to school everyday of my whole senior year, and the air conditioners at my school weren’t too reliable, either. Second of all, most work places are going to have dress codes. You can’t walk into an office showing off your bra and panties. I think it’s just preparing them for the real world. I don’t think the NYC kids have any room to complain, do you?
