One of the few things I look forward to on my 40th birthday is drunkenly shouting this as my wife rolls her eyes.

eas81: Ok have to point this out, but they live in Hicksville.  In case you didn't notice the girl graduated on the High school football field.  What were you expecting from the stix??

I grew up in the downtown of one of the 20 largest metro areas in the state.  Held graduation on the football field.  Don't be so ashamed of your roots.

log_jammin: mom "well, I guess you better not wear that one to school anymore even if that is a BS rule"


FTFA: Not only was it Violet's last day of classes before graduation, but she had worn the dress to school half a dozen times before without any problems.

So, yeah, it goes without saying she wouldn't be wearing it to school anymore after that...

If the daughter is in reasonably good shape, and mom can fit in her graduating daughter's dress, it's fair to say that they're vain enough to not get fat.

My wife will not let herself get fat. Non. She looked at herself 2 weeks after baby #1 was born and said "you're watching her for two hours everyday while I go to the gym" without discussion. I didn't argue too much, okay not at all, because she did actually lose the "mommy pouch".

So much easier to stay attracted to an in shape wife.

Someone pulled the daughter out of the last day of classes for a dress code infraction?

I'm calling shenanigans on that.  Even if she was wearing something completely inappropriate, they would have had to put up with it for a few hours on a day in which there is no learning.

And if you think that dress is distracting, you might want to stay away from the JC Penny circular.  It leads to impure thoughts.

When I was in middle school, the board updated the dress code and the teachers flooded the office with student infractions in protest.

I was sent to the office for wearing a velour shirt.  That was much more embarassing than this.

Kenny B: Her Mom looks like a dude. Outfit is hideous on both of them.


The mom is flexing in one of the pictures from the graduation day.  She must work for a living...like, something with a lot of dust, sun, and manual labor.  Construction, whatever.  We're all complaining about how masculine she looks...and yeah, the pictures aren't flattering, in that perspective.

OK, I don't know why this went up my nose this morning, but can I just say that the "fingertip rule" everyone seems to be in love with this year is total nonsense.

This is like going shopping with your nutty aunt.

I know a grandmother that can fit into her 14 year-old granddaughter's jeans. She's in her late 50s and smoking hot. No surgery, either.

There are a lot of young men on Fark with sad ideas about valuing people based on their looks.  At least I hope they're young.

Good for mom, standing up for her daughter.  It's freaking hard to instill confidence in girls, and a strong role model is great.

mbillips: Tellingthem: ChubbyTiger: lack of warmth: Aigoo: log_jammin: I didn't read the article, but geeez...the dress was too short by the schools rules. let it go.


Um, actually, most school dress codes are "fingertip length" at a minimum. On the kid, it's far longer than that. It even meets many churches' standard of "no more than one inch above the knee while standing" (that's standing with both feet together) for the kid. It's possible that the issue isn't the skirt length at all, but the bustline. I might be a little iffy on it for a day of high school classes, but it's not inappropriate for most other uses for a 17 year old young woman.

Either way, she'd worn it about a half a dozen times throughout the school year without ever being sent home or warned about it--which you'd know if you'd actually read the article. That's why the parent had an issue. I would have too.

Um actually, you fail at measurements.  The skirt is a full 3" above the kid's knee which would not pass at any public school I attended, SC or MI.  I would agree a couple schools would've also been upset about the top half as not covering enough as well.  log_jammin didn't need to read it, the mom just has authority issues where it doesn't matter.

On a different note, I get the thought that if mom doesn't get fat, the daughter may not either.  However crazy levels should still be considered.

Really? What kind of weirdo fundie school did you go to? Hell, our gym shorts were a good 6" shorter than that. Girls regularly wore mid-thigh skirts and nobody blinked. And don't even get me started on the cheerleader uniforms.

/I may be a little old
//good for the mom

I went to a public school and fingertip length was the rule (or two inches above the knee). No hats or shorts (except for gym). Small town Michigan. But that 20-30 years ago so I'm sure things have loosened up by now.

I hit the exact sweet spot for girl's clothing in high school. Rural Tennessee in the mid- to late-70s. Short shorts, halters, ...



Same here; graduated in 1978 from a TN high school. IIRC the dress code for girls was they couldn't show a midriff, the skirts had to be no shorter than mid-thigh, and they couldn't show cleavage. There was a lot of leeway otherwise; one girl in my homeroom came to school in jeans so tight the teacher asked her if they were sprayed on. Another one came in with a frilly skirt that barely met the requirements, but no way could she sit down without showing everyone what color her underwear was. Then there were the halter tops and the cheerleader uniforms they wore on game day...

When I was in highschool in the 90s, we (girls) wore baggy jeans or cords, and our Dads' old flannel shirts or bomber jackets.

I kick myself for that.  I was a smoking hot size six with big boobs, I could've raked it in.  Now I'm fat with big boobs and it's not as nice (although kinda wish the oversized flannel shirt look would come back).

Almea Tarrant: Bendal: Damn, when did schools start requiring girls to wear their dresses barely above the knee? I remember girls in my high school wearing skirts that showed half their thigh, and nearly all of their leg when they sat down and crossed their legs. No, it wasn't that distracting; well, maybe a little, but they didn't stop us from learning in class either.

My high school had a teacher who wore skirts like that.  She also wore stiletto heels and liked to sit on her desk with her legs crossed.  Her class was very popular with all the guys who were, I'm sure, deeply interested in the history she was teaching.  I think they studied flags too as they discussed what color was flying daily.
She got fired for some reason, probably due to controversial historical views.


Had a teacher like that, taught math.  Unfortunately she was pudgy and not a real looker above the shoulders.  Mid 70's for reference.

As for TFA, I'd say that the skirt being too short would be less of an issue than the neckline being rather closer to he navel than her neck.  But whatever, if you're getting that distracted by a little bewb or bootie you're probably doomed to die crashing your car when a hottie walks by...or to being a politician.

Dress is a little short but not bad, my guess is the top is what really caused the problem.   Way too much shoulder and cleavage for most schools now a days.

/Yes you can wear it to church just not school.
//Mom needs to lay off the steroids or shave before taking selfies.  A little too much 5 o'clock shadow.

Back then, my clique -- the postpunks, proto-goths, new wavers, neo-hippies, and alternative types-- were the ones who wore dresses and skirts. ..And not just the girls, but some of us guys, too (I looked smashing in a long skirt and combat boots; Lots of female attention when I dared, and the school administrators didn't care.). Most of the girls in my clique wore skirts or dresses, often very elaborately designed or decorated ones. Granted, they also often wore combat boots, mohawks, razor blade earrings, spiked collars, and skipped wearing underwear when they wore long skirts. Still, back in those days the schools didn't get all upset over what students looked like, as long as they weren't blatantly obscene.

The preppies all wore Jordache jeans; `Not even faded ones (that wasn't "in" at the time), but dark blue and crisp. They also wore those hideous Izod shirts and over-bedazzled blouses. Blech.

Look at the kid's back leg, not the one that's kicked out. Could be the lay of the fabric or the angle of the shot, but on the straight leg, it looks long enough.

And again, taking into consideration that half dozen times she'd worn it that year without a problem, my guess is they chose a shiatty picture of the kid to show the length on her.

Also, don't look at the mom at all--she's several inches taller.

The real question to ask is, "did anyone notice or care?" I'm betting the entire article exists because the mom contacted Yahoo to tell them the whole sordid, one-sided tale.

The mother crows about winning a "struggle" that, apparently, her opponents didn't realize was actually happening. This was worth of report by Yahoo.
