coffeeburns: hmm, I'm in Joplin, and I'm hearing that students are saying the conversation didn't exactly go the way the article states.


Well Jimmy Olsen, what's the scoop, then?

Actually, the top she's wearing de-emphasizes her bust.

Apparently there is another side to the story (imagine that!).
The school dress code is No Boobs, bellies, or butts (im repeating what i saw on the Facebook comments, not my verbiage lol), and she was actually sent to the office for a bare midriff (oh the horror).
I'm not defending the school or teacher or any-such thing, but as a person whom likes to be objective, i do try to make sure the various sides are presented.

Jake Havechek: vudukungfu: Jake Havechek: In '84, a girl got sent home from my high school for wearing a tube top.

they did go out of fashion in 78.
I remember girls wearing them in high school.
 and think halters with no bras.

ah, the 70s.

Ahhh, the halters with no bra.  It was truly a magical time.


Those tube tops and halters were responsible for "the jack in the box" boners that always occurred when I stood up in front of the class. Darn high school days.

The fact school districts have a pretty solid policy (under advice of legal counsel) to not talk to the press about these issues in public, this makes sense. Good on the fellow student for posting the snap.

You need to learn to identify FAKE NEWS.  My point was that TFA is so blatantly biased, you can't trust it's description of happened.  In other words, YOU DON'T KNOW the manner in which the teacher treated the student because the article has an obvious agenda that involves a financial benefit to the student and/or her mother.

Therefore, sexualize an underage girl in front of her classmates, giving them ammo to make her life a living hell for the rest of her days there, then discuss her tits in front of her mom. Great strategy. Got any more diagrams there, Oliver Stone, maybe placed over a map connected with push pins and string?

/even if the top wasn't laced it wouldn't be all that revealing.
 
2017-09-14 10:41:53 AM  
I'm sure that's exactly how tight the strings were that control the cleavage when the teacher yelled at her.  No student has ever pulled their skirt higher, shirt more open, or rolled up their shorts to avoid dress codes, and then put it back when they got in trouble and claimed mistreatment.  That's unheard of.  It MUST be oppression.

You poor, naive thing. That's ALL they talk about.


I agree with her point, but if some kid came to school with a Robert Plant/Bonn Scott bulge in tight jeans, he might get called out too.

rebelyell2006: CaptainOrangeCat: That shirt is very cute and there is nothing inappropriate about it.  It isn't even tight.  The jeans are awful, but that's not really the student's fault - it's almost impossible to find jeans for teens that are not "skinny" and "low rise" which looks good on exactly 1% of the population (and they are the ones that do the modelling of them usually).  The best way to see how the fashion has completely skewed the choices that girls have in pants is to look at a school that has the "polo and khakis" uniform.  All the boys are walking around in comfortable looking, relaxed fit khakis, and all of the girls are walking around in skin tight khakis.  Not because that's what they wanted, because that is all there is.  I spent months trying to find relaxed fit khakis for my step-daughter and couldn't find anything.  Even Dickies were "skinny, low cut" style.  My step-daughter is one of those girls that looks good in them (which bothered me even more, because a 7th grader's pants should not look like they were painted on her body).  She's a senior in high school now, and can wear what she wants, and still can't find pants that fit her properly.  She is very active in sports and has muscular thighs because of it.  However, her waist is a size 1.  Skinny jean that fits a size 1 waist are hugely uncomfortable on her thighs.  After much searching, I found some relaxed fit jeans that fit her thighs and had them altered to fit her waist.  They look comfortable, and she can move easily in them, but I have a hard time getting her to wear them because they look so vastly different from what all of her peers are wearing she feels out of place.

Of course, the distressing of the jeans is annoying - but that's a different story.  When I had holes in my jeans, it's because I earned them the hard way - not because I bought them that way.

The boys are going to have issues too. The latest trend at Target, Belks, and so on when I went to Santa Fe for pants shopping last month was skinny/straight leg dress trousers. With stretch banding around the waist. And 0% cotton.  And lower waistbands too, so they ground into my balls very uncomfortably. I bought trousers online instead.


I have t even thought about shopping for clothes at a Target in ten years for just that reason. I am not who their clothes are made for. At this point I am content with commodity-grade tshirts and disposable cheap Walmart pants.

Dress codes are farkin' stupid. Stop worrying about what the kids are wearing or doing with their own bodies, and farkin' teach them about English, History, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Civics, and other things.

Back when I was in public school there was no dress code. The administrators and teachers had better, more important things to do than obsess over whether someone's clothes were too tight, too short, too torn, or too offensively screen-printed. They never said one word to me, whether I was wearing torn jeans, or wearing ripped fishnets, a knee-length skirt, and combat boots. Not one word about my multi-hued hair, not one detention or demerit over my smeared lipstick and eyeliner. They might say "cool outfit" sometimes, but they never got all bent out of shape and sent me out of class.

The same goes for the girls. I saw lots of cleavage, lots of tight t-shirts, lots of bare midriffs (actually, it was the 80s, so that was also popular with some guys, too), lots of short skirts... And yes, it was titillating, but that was MY problem, not the girls' problem, and certainly not the teachers' problem to solve.

Even if the girl in this story was showing her midriff (which is probably why the teacher was going on about "plus sized" girls) it's NOBODY'S BUSINESS but the girl's. I absolutely hate it when people try to tell other people how to dress.  You can say you don't like it. You can say they look tacky or slutty or dirty or whatever... But punishment and trying to enforce a specific code of dress always offends me.

The sole exceptions are in a courtroom or when you agree to an employer's code of dress. Otherwise, if you're not standing before a Judge or getting paid to be there, it should be up to you how you choose to dress, and if people stare that's for you to deal with, too. It's nobody else's business.

Well, yes, except the problem (such as it was) would have been easily corrected by having Miss Barber tuck her top in. Moreover, the dress code as a whole is clearly not consistently enforced.

I'm sure the teacher gets on great with Miss Wilson, but that just makes it look like favoritism. I remain convinced this is a personality conflict going beyond Miss Barber's choices of outfit---and her chest.

My point is that the article is obviously propaganda and you SHOULD have been thinking:

"Gee, I bet there is another side to this story." - Your Inner Voice


Do you FWD: FWD: FWD: fake news from your crazy uncle?  Perhaps you ARE that crazy uncle.  Turns out that the dress code violation was actually in regard to her exposed belly, not her chest.  The photo angle in TFA cleverly conceals this important detail.  You should always be suspicious of one-sided reporting, especially if you get a sense of outrage.

Learn that feeling... it is the feeling of being manipulated.

My high school had a dress code, but administrators did not focus on enforcement. The teachers were told to use their best judgment and give out demerits to any students with violations as they came into class. In theory, if all teachers equally enforced the dress code each day, those demerits would quickly add up to a detention or two by the end of the day, and the student would have an incentive to change after the first class.

Same here, except it is "shirts I get sweaty while hiking" and "shirts I wear to work". The latter category also includes some dress shirts with my employer's logo, which does reduce my shirt-buying burden, and my hiking shirts can be the cheapest, thinnest long-sleeve shirts they carry at Walmart. I hate how the decent dress shirts at outlet stores (Van Heusen, etc) are more and more slim/fitted, because I actually have shoulders and shoulder muscles, and a gut, but the shirts would not fit even if I lose weight.

You know, you two girls have everything. You're tall and short and slim and stout and blonde and brunette. And that's just the kind of a girl I crave.

Please tell me you tell me you are going to regale us with the mechanics of actually executing someone with a cannon like the mural. Because I am actually interested in a knowledgeable take on the subject now that it crosses my mind.


I think you quoted the wrong person. But as someone who has fired black powder cannons on state and federal parks, I can assure you the powder charge alone would kill the person at that range, burn them really badly, and splinter the tree.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: tillerman35: It's a shiat town in the middle of a shiat state, but it does have some pretty cool art.  Thomas Hart Benton is one of America's greatest painters.  If you're every driving through what you should have flown over instead, I highly recommend stopping in at the Joplin town hall and taking a quick look at the mural there.

The guy tried to the tree looks like he's baffled and slightly annoyed that they're going through such wasteful effort when they could just shoot or stab him regular-like.

Therefore, sexualize an underage girl in front of her classmates, giving them ammo to make her life a living hell for the rest of her days there, then discuss her tits in front of her mom. Great strategy. Got any more diagrams there, Oliver Stone, maybe placed over a map connected with push pins and string?

/even if the top wasn't laced it wouldn't be all that revealing.

My point is that the article is obviously propaganda and you SHOULD have been thinking:

"Gee, I bet there is another side to this story." - Your Inner Voice
Do you FWD: FWD: FWD: fake news from your crazy uncle?  Perhaps you ARE that crazy uncle.  Turns out that the dress code violation was actually in regard to her exposed belly, not her chest.  The photo angle in TFA cleverly conceals this important detail.  You should always be suspicious of one-sided reporting, especially if you get a sense of outrage.

Learn that feeling... it is the feeling of being manipulated.

It's a loose-fitting shirt. If the shirt was too tight, you might have a point. I mean, I would still choke you to death in front of your own class if you did that to my daughter, but you'd still have a point.

I was staring at that painting thinking, "That's a whole lot of effort to go through just to make an incredibly disgusting mess, when they could just stab the guy with their bayonet and avoid all that canon preparation, loud noise, tree-killing, and gore."

Of course, it's pretty horrible that they've got a guy tied up and they still think they need to kill him, anyway. Just take your wagon and go, you jerks. He's not going to follow you!

It looks like the soon to be victim is thinking "Ok, this seems a bit over the top. Really? A cannon?"


Aw dammit, you beat me to it!

Imp___12: Apparently there is another side to the story (imagine that!).
The school dress code is No Boobs, bellies, or butts (im repeating what i saw on the Facebook comments, not my verbiage lol), and she was actually sent to the office for a bare midriff (oh the horror).
I'm not defending the school or teacher or any-such thing, but as a person whom likes to be objective, i do try to make sure the various sides are presented.

It is pretty clear from the pics, that its the same outfit she is wearing.


Thanks, Imp___12.  I thought her single-pose, demure stance picture was pretty much the best possible way to conceal whatever might have made her stand out.

vudukungfu: Jake Havechek: In '84, a girl got sent home from my high school for wearing a tube top.

they did go out of fashion in 78.
I remember girls wearing them in high school.
 and think halters with no bras.

ah, the 70s.


Yes indeed, good Sir. With hiphuggers and short shorts / cutoffs.  70's were amazing in many ways.

How exactly is she even supposed to wear MORE clothes?
 FFS
She seems fully clothed to me
Girls  were allowed to wear tank tops to my high school

flondrix: harleyquinnical: Deep Contact: Teacher was obviously jealous.

Kind of wanted a pic of the teacher for the sake of accuracy.

Not to mention other necklines from the same school.  Perhaps the teacher was objecting to the "cleavage window" where the top laces together?


The proper term is "Boob Window", and that top has a tasteful one.

I have a lot of shirts like hers, even if the laces are completely undone they wouldn't show much more than what is in TFA. And even if she did expose a slight bit of belly it wouldn't be any different than what the low rise jean fad did.

I gotta say most school dress codes are arbitrary, even though I went to high school in the early 2000s the rules where never enforced well, especially when you where pretty and the male security guards gave 0 farks. We weren't supposed to wear a lot of things but it really depended on the teacher, what security guard/admin saw you, and how hot outside it was on any given day.

Oh no, I quoted the right person. If you enjoy shooting black powder and haven't met ditty, then consider this the start of a beautiful friendship.
