Aren't all earrings male? They love to go in your hole.
 
2012-06-20 07:24:48 AM  
Maybe next year they'll allow males to have hair in a style that isn't a crew cut!

Nothing goes with a wispy high school mustache and a Kid Rock concert shirt like a cubic zirconia stud.

Earrings are a terrible idea. They are the first thing I grab for in a fight. The lobes (or better, the cartilaginous outer ear) are really easy to tear, especially with a post to pull on.

There are the kind that clasp onto your ear lobe, rather than go through a piercing. What are those? Doesn't sound very 'male' or 'female.'

Slow news today, so slooooow

It's well-known that a guy with a nice pair of diamond earrings never lacks for a beau. Kudos to the school for supporting gay rights!

There are three acceptable haircuts. High and tight, crewcut, buzzcut.

I had never even heard of the stereotype of Alabamans not having shoes until I met this girl from Birmingham down here on the island.

Doesn't the Southern Poverty Law Center have more important things to work on? Such as the fact that there are still some all white public high schools in Alabama?

Insecure little farts who think making fun of an entire state is not in any way a form of prejudice. Get a piece of paper and count them. It's a fun game.

Even more fun - make fun of NY or whatever shiatball state they're from and see them get to defending it, etc.

Really? You go for an earring before you go for a necktie? Now mind you, I may do my bar-fighting in classier places than you're accostomed to.

Yep. Easy lawsuit. Under the dress code, can girls wear earrings? Yes. Can boys? No. Is the only difference their gender? Yes. Book it, done.

There was a kid in my highschool that had an earring and a nose ring, attached by a chain. One day, he got in a fight. It did not go well for him.

Yeah, it's funny. People will get all bent out of shape and call things like Breakfast at Tiffany's horribly racist and then in the same breath they will say something like Southerners are all inbred retards.

It really boggles the mind.

I expect it on Fark, but I've left certain corners of the internet which were meant to be serious and supportive sites because there was too much of that.

But on topic for this thread, who farking really cares if male students in Alabama can wear earrings to school - except for high school students in Alabama?

Distinctions are allowed in school dress codes if there's a legitimate reason not exclusively related to "traditional gender roles". For example, dress codes can require girls to wear bras while not requiring boys to do so.

Yes, I did notice that. You'll notice that the person you responded to specifically said "shirts vs. skins". Are you suggesting that schools will or should allow skins vs. bras or shirts vs. bras?

Are leather boots still in style for manly footwear? Are beads and roman sandals ever seen?
 
2012-06-20 09:15:23 AM  
Like flat-brimmed baseball caps, male earrings are a great indicator for who should not be taken seriously, considered for a job, etc. Hip hop...what can't it do?

Those are the Sandusky Earrings - they just hang around the little parts and squeeze tightly until forced to let go.

So flat chested girls are fine for bra-free shirt-free activity, and fat be-moobed guys are required to maintain a bro and shirt at all times. Got it

Did you go to High School in the late 70's? The only girls who wore bras at my school were the ones in the religious clubs and nerds whose parents were uptight about it. And half of them ditched the bras as soon as they got in the building. This was the era of faux silk shirts and tube tops, so it was pretty obvious they were going "free."

As far as I know, nobody was harmed by boobies. The only danger came from the fact that the high school was in Wisconsin and the heating system was incapable of keeping the temperature above 60F. It's a wonder nobody got their eye poked out by a glass cutter!

If you look at actual statistics, comparing, like, graduation and test scores and so forth, you would see that Alabama does indeed seem to be inhabited by morans. Might be because of inbreeding, but that needs more research.

My middle school allowed it, but that was 1980-82. I still remember Diane's adult sized hooters on her 14 year old body.
