As a Canadian, I can assure you that none of us are outraged about this story. In fact, it's nice to see students being abreast of gender issues.

I'm actually more outraged that subby linked the hideous mobile version of this story.

There's a proper venue for one's opinion about strippers. The strip club.

Isabella's father, said it's up to the graduates to decide what they want to wear in the photos, even if years later, they might come to regret that decision.

.
So he's not even going to attempt to discourage her from making a regrettable decision?

Stand up, dad!

She'll thank you later.

I'm sorry, but this story and the crop-top high school student protest was not "covered" in the proper fashion. We need many more pictures in order to finger out our position on these matttttttttersssss. More pictures. More. Pictures. MORE PICTURES,!!!
Never mind. I've come to a conclusion.

Apparently coding web pages to fill your browser got much harder recently.
Or not so recently.  I'd forgotten how farking stupid FB looks with it's tiny center column until my browser addon that fixes it stopped working briefly.

"Let's get a pikachu tattooed on my forehead" is a regrettable decision. Having a potentially embarrassing picture taken is a very mild life lesson a bit down the road.

Canadian outrage =
"Sorry about that, how's this shirt instead."
"No problem, I'm sorry for being such a stickler. That looks much better."
"Great."
"Cheese!"
"Buy ya a beer?"
"Oh yeah, thanks bud."
"No problem."

Take it from me, it's easier to just tell the truth than to claim you entered the strip club because you absolutely had to poop and couldn't drive another mile and you only took the private dance to avoid looking like a schlub.

"It was a clip art picture of a woman wearing skin-tight clothing with a tail and two ears - so it kind of really looks like Catwoman [a fictional character appearing in film and comic books]," said Chu. "I don't understand how anyone in the school would find Catwoman suggestive."
...she said, with a straight face.

/ah, to be young and cheeky again

Much obliged.  If I had the choice, I'd wear the girls' choice over the traditional shoice; that mascot looks more like a horny imp than a full devil.  Just being mature.

As someone living near the Canadian border - and the clubs are referred to as 'Ballet' (going to the Windsor Ballet, or Ontario Ballet)
1) The drinking age is lower in Ontario - this attracts more of the American college group.
2) When there were 'adult entertainment' establishments in the local border town, they were not allowed to go completely nude - Ontario clubs allow it.
3) Exchange rate - tipping a Canadian Dollar is only .81 American - although throwing loonies at strippers can leave bruises.

I thought it was how the Canadian women got through college.
You would think this career choice would be encouraged?
 
2017-09-24 07:42:20 AM  
so the one choice was to pull th3 tshirt down?   and showing that much more cleavage is less sexually suggestive than the image?  AND some of them listened?    I wonder if you can order that yearbook online somewhere?
 
2017-09-24 07:47:04 AM  
If the 'Blue Devils' in that town are actually wearing shoes that look like that?... The local podiatrists will be able to buy new boats.

2017-09-24 08:07:03 AM  
To make that story more Canadian, it needs a reference to Tim Horton's, a hockey fight, and a twofour of Molson.
 
2017-09-24 08:20:20 AM  
Things that enrage Canadians:

Tim Horton's being sold to Burger King
Watery American beer
Losing at hockey
Winning at hockey
Fake maple syrup
Spanish fishing boats

and now, vaguely possibly mildly erotic designs on shirts.

Being suggestive if kind of Catwoman's entire shtick.
 
2017-09-24 08:28:52 AM  
I'da thunk that the girls pulling their t-shirts down so the image didn't show in the pictures would be even more suggestive. But I'll just have a seat over there, thanks.
 
2017-09-24 08:42:52 AM  
Pretty much guaranteed that if you pull down on a T-Shirt a little to move the logo down it's NOT going to show massive cleavage unless the neck is already stretched out on the NEW t-shirt. Maybe a LITTLE more skin but not cleavage.  That's not how t-shirts work.
 
2017-09-24 08:48:58 AM  
If the girls just did what everyone said, this life would be easier. Amirite, fellas?

This.

For those without children,  at some point you need to let them make bad decisions.   That's how they learn consequences.

It's a school picture.

I haven't looked at my high school yearbook photos since I was still in high school.  I think they'll get over it.  Sometimes you pick your battles - "regretting" it later may be worth less than what they learn now.

Nice.

Story reminds me of the talent show we had my senior year in HS.  The cheerleaders did Reproduction from Grease 2...playing male and female parts.  They were disqualified.  I don't think they've ever had another talent show since then.

It can be stretched or torn. They've been told to pull it down. Girls, show some cleavage!

In what realm is this possibly a "regrettable decision" that anypne needs saving from? It's a farking highschool photo.

Who cares? Maybe you should join the rest of the world in what we like to call, "life after highschool." Fortunately and conveniently, life after highschool is the bulk of your life.

I went to the crop-top article linked on that page and the young lass who was at the center of that article posted a pic online of her in the offending outfit. I have no opinion which I think is safe to publically state.
