It sounds like they were just looking for any excuse to get rid of an idiotic rule.

The best thing about being an adult is not having to deal with arbitrary rules that idiots come up with as busywork.

Are these kids being paid to abide by these stupid rules?

No?

Then who cares about one's workplace analogy.

Maybe if you don't want to look fat you should actually try solving your fat issue not your clothing issue.
 
2013-05-11 08:01:09 PM  
I wish people would quit worrying about "offending" someone.  If they are little fat bastards, maybe it would do them some good to get a little peer pressure to get their fat *sses in shape.
 
2013-05-11 08:02:53 PM  
So their not allowed to wear muumuus
 
2013-05-11 08:06:19 PM  
So what if fat kids feel uncomfortable?
 
2013-05-11 08:11:42 PM  
Fat people disgust me.
 
2013-05-11 08:11:56 PM  
What's the point of tucking in shirts anyway? Isn't it just a fashion statement? "Oooh look I'm Mr. Goodboy my shirt is tucked in and you can see the form of my body." For fat people, of course this is going to be a problem. The fat people already get bullied, can you imagine the additional insults that will be directed at them once their fat bodies become more visible?

"HHAHAHAHA look at him, he's not a planet but he's got his own ring around him!"

"Dude it's raining, can I take cover under your belly flabs?"

"Do you work for McDonald's? Your moobs and belly look like Grimace!"

"Watch out, here comes Droopy!"

"Damn his belly can speak!"

"Behold, the ripples of obesity!"


Just let fat people hide their bodies, they're not harming anyone.
 
2013-05-11 08:16:16 PM  
I fear that given enough time evolution might view this average fatness we have going on as normal and start using it as a baseline in the future.

We'd have to go back to the late 80's, very early 90's. As far as I can tell, that's when peoples poor wittle feweeings started mattering more than anything else.
 
2013-05-11 08:26:07 PM  
On the plus side, it makes it easier to hide that teen pregnancy.
 
2013-05-11 08:32:26 PM  
It has nothing to do with petty self-esteem issues. It's a simple engineering problem - you can't expect people to do what's physically impossible, after all. I mean, what, do you want kids to start having to wear rain slickers just so they'll be long enough to actually tuck in? Obviously, the problem isn't the rotund little corpulent balls of goo. Oh, no. No sir. The problem is most certainly the rule requiring them to be able to actually reach the waistbands of their pants with the bottoms of their shirts.

Lawlz at 'circle of lardass'.

Now I'm imagining 'Circle of Life' done with tuba accompaniment.

False. We still have congress for those.. Although they do treat pretty much everyone as children.

You seem to think that being fat is a problem.... and I guarantee that they don't think it is.

No, they think the rules don't apply to them BECAUSE  they are fat.

"It was brought to my attention that for the students that are healthy, tucking in your shirt shows your healthiness,"

Is "healthy" a new euphemism for "fat"?
 
2013-05-11 09:03:25 PM  
Maybe they should add one of these to the school uniform.
 
2013-05-11 09:09:59 PM  
In junior high you could hide your boner if you untucked your shirt.  If these fatties are even able to pop a chubby they gut would prolly cover it anyways.....
 
2013-05-11 09:18:03 PM  
Maybe the little hippies should get some haircuts, too.

If you are dressed by your grandmother.

Dress codes are incredibly stupid. The reason for uniforms is never, "make the poor kids feel better about their lack of designer clothes" nor is it "prevent inappropriate slogans/sexuality". It is simply: "remove personal identities and indoctrinate the victim with the mentality that authoritarianism is acceptable in day-to-day life" That's why uniforms are a vital part of a standing army or prison system. It's one facet of an ongoing campaign to repress dissension.

spentmiles: I think we're the last Americans that will remember what "being fat" actually means.  You go anywhere nowadays and nearly everyone is overweight.  Gradually, as these kids take over, they'll drop the "over" part.  225 at 5'9" will be the new normal.  And the first child will be born and die immediately of a heart attack.  This will become the new SIDS.  We'll cure it by moving every delivery to the water.  Our soft spots will never heal.  They'll form into blow holes.  It's the circle of lardass.

I'm confused, too. I assume those things would be upright when it's fully inflated but my brain still can't make any sense of it.

I've recently seen a collection of JROTC students at a gathering/muster. That's the most comical thing I have ever seen, as there are so many fat students in the corps(e).  I do not know if they get their extra large shirts from the military supply chains, but nobody in our fighting forces should be that big and therefore getting shirts and pants that large for the students should be impossible.

Don't get me started on the number of ribbons they have.  Some students had 5 rows of ribbons, multiple ropes on their shoulders, and medals clanking all over the place.  Not to do with them being fat, but even the fattest of them had several ribbons.

Chuckle - found it in a google image search for "weird hot air balloon". It's an australian art balloon designed for a company's anniversary, and it's even stranger in profile. The artist won't say what it was supposed to be..

If I am wearing another shirt over the t-shirt (such as an unbuttoned flannel shirt) then I tuck in the t-shirt.  If it is just the t-shirt then I leave it untucked.

The military exists to turn idiots into smart people by inuring them to arbitrary rules...so that when necessary they'll know how to bypass them.
