This girl was sent home today from a high school in Kentucky because she was breaking dress code. Female students are not allowed to show their collar bone because it's distracting the male students.

It certainly wasn't her collar bones that distracted me. We are talking about the American south where Republicans are desperately trying to drag everybody back into the 19th century. I see by Wally's response, that is why he supports the Repubs.

Girls learn from an early age that their bodies are dangerous and not considered their own. It's a straight line from "distracting boys" to "deserves harassment" to "rape". This kind of dress code is how girls are socialized into being sex objects and blamed for their own oppression.

I agree with Corduroy. Everyone is conditioned or trained from very early ages and because of religion mostly, sex and our bodies are evil until marriage. Then you mix that with fashion and clothing designers' ideas of how women should look and the inabilities of parents to teach their kids respect for others and it is quite volatile.

Get rid of the gay men who design and market clothes. That is the problem.

Why? Straight men don't want to dress women like dolls.

Not all male clothing designers are gay.

Does your hubby design and dress himself in the clothes he lets you wear?

Does he strut around while playing "It's raining men"?

Social norms now who decides what social norms are? What I am reading here is the
Born again crowd in the old south are every bit as religiously oppressed as the Muslims
you know the religion of peace. Here is America supposedly half way round the world
fighting to rid people of oppression and at home they are using moral codes and social
norms to enforce what they are fighting.
Ain't religion great when it interferes with and tries to enforce its own vision of social norms

Religion eh.... I didn't read anything about it being a religious group pushing these restrictions. Seems to me that it's probably some **** retentive old fart (probably your age) pushing his/her own agenda.

gerryh everything in the Bible belt of the deep south is based on religion.
They don't even go out and see their shadow before prayer.
I have not problem with people being religious more than half my family are.
In fact I was in Cape Breton last week being driven around half of them do
the sign of the cross passing a church still. Don't kid yourself these folks
dominate the political and social agenda of everything.
Where I take issue is when they attempt to apply religion to the secular
society at large. You want to be religious great you want to dress in sack cloth
and ashes even fine but don't try to manipulate others into the religious vision
of all.
I spent years going to mass and church events with family that is until the day
a magic birthday said I am old enough to say enough already. Do I think kids
should go to school half naked, of course not but this kid is not inappropriately
dressed, in mainstream society. I am not an atheist but I sure as hell avoid the
church crowd as much as i can.
Yes acceptable is subjective but the social police are going too far.
We expect nonsense like this in the Middle East and for ideological reasons in
place like China. North America in the mainstream has moved into the 21st
century. We live in a multi cultural and secular society its called democratic
freedom where individualism is given preference

It's a public school. Religion is evil in the public system.

I guess female Woodford students must do PhysEd in a basement with no windows or else wearing potato sacks.
And we are speaking of a public school in KY. KY is in the Bible belt.

Their dress code:

WCMS DRESS CODE
At Woodford County Middle school, we believe that students should “dress for success.” Student dress
needs to be comfortable and neat and promote a safe, united, and orderly learning environment. Students
are encouraged to check their clothing before departing from home in the mornings so they do not lose
academic time dealing with a dress code issue.
General
All students are expected to adhere to common practices of modesty, cleanliness, and neatness and to dress
in such a manner as to contribute to the academic atmosphere. Clothing, jewelry, accessories, or other items
of adornment that refer to alcohol, tobacco, drugs, sexual innuendos, gang activity, violence, foul language,
or weaponry is not permitted. The wearing of any item that materially or significantly disrupts the
educational process or threatens the health or safety of other students or staff members is prohibited.
Pants
Students may wear jeans, khakis, slacks, or sweatpants of any color. Pants must conform to the following:
• Must zip, tie, or snap and be free of holes and rips above the knee (frays and tears are considered holes.)
• Must cover underwear and backside at all times
• Must not sag (must be worn at waist level)
• Spandex, bicycle, pajama, yoga, and flannel pants are prohibited.
Shorts/Skirts
• Shorts and skirts must be knee length or longer
• Be composed of nontransparent material at least to the knee length
• Must be free of holes and rips
• Must cover underwear and backside at all times
• Must not sag (must be worn at waist level)
Dresses
• Be composed of nontransparent material at least to knee length
• Must be knee length or longer
• Midriff, back, cleavage, and collarbone must remain covered at all times
• Sleeves must have a measurable underarm seam
Shirts
All shirts must meet the following criteria:
• Sleeves must have a measurable underarm seam
• Must be able to be tucked in even during movement (although it does not have to be tucked in)
• Midriff, back, cleavage, and collarbone must remain covered at all times
• Be composed of nontransparent material
Footwear
•Footwear must be worn at all times. Slippers, house shoes, or the like are prohibited.

Prudes is the word you are looking for. Perverts would have mandatory yoga pants showing camel toe.

Can you even say the word "camel" in KY let alone hint at wearing something that shows something similar to a part of a camel?

Kilts show knees. I guess to the authorities in Woodburn or whatever all Scots and Irish that wear kilts are pervs.
