Just last week, a 7th grader with a curvy build came home upset about this. She had worn an outfit with a skirt and leggings, and in the morning, a teacher had said to her, “Cute outfit.” But then her homeroom teacher pulled her aside at the end of the day and said, “You know, another girl could get away with that outfit, but you should not be wearing that. I’m going to dress code you.” Juliet Bond and the child’s mom were discussing the incident, not certain if the message to the child was ‘you’re too sexy’ or ‘you’re too fat.’

The kids also report that the teachers have been discussing ‘appropriate body types for leggings and yoga pants and inappropriate body types for yoga pants and leggings.’

Bond says, “This is concerning because it is both slut shaming and fat shaming. If a girl is heavy or developed, the message is that she cannot wear certain clothes.” Neither is acceptable. We should not be sexualizing kids, nor should we be making them feel that they can wear leggings as long as they remain stick thin. Bond asks, “Why are the girls being pulled out of class to have assemblies on whether they are wearing the right clothes, while the boys remain in class, learning and studying?”

I don’t have a problem with a school having a dress code; in fact, I attended a school that didn’t allow jeans or shorts or shirts without collars, but I do have a problem when the dress code is discriminately based on gender and body type. There is a big difference between telling all students to dress respectfully and telling curvy girls to dress in a way that doesn’t distract boys.

That’s the worst part about this. If sone thing isn’t uniform, then it’s not uniform for EVERYONE. Actually think about what you want your dress code to be, like organized and professional adults, and stop just picking on curvy girls. Do your job and stop vilifying curvy girls because you’re not proactively doing your job.

I went to a school with a district wide dress code that equally limited the types of clothes that boys and girls could wear. This whole fiasco just doesn’t make sense to me. If something isn’t mentioned in the rules, just pulling students aside and telling them their outfit isn’t okay because of their body is extremely messed up. It’s this “well she should have known better” ideology that places curvy bodies at automatic fault for being curvy.
