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.


This post useless without pics.

Not surprised. The mother sounds like a bit of a nutcase, one of these people looking to be offended. One who if the facts are as she says would be right in this case, but a nutcase just the same.

Administration definitely should have moved the kid regardless. A whole lot of stupid in the article.

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

rebelyell2006: 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'm not even sure HOW normal boys FIT in the goddamn pants sold in chain stores. I'm so glad for the stretch waists coming back. My son is normal shaped (at least I assume he is), but everything's too tight around the thighs, tight through the crotch, loose as hell around the waist and hips... It's the worst. I think he wore sweatpants for 3 years solid.

I went to high school in the 70s, which makes me and my teachers dinosaurs by today's standards. And still, no teacher back then would call out this girl for that outfit. It's not like she's showing too much skin or something.

She might offend one of the other snowflake kids by dressing like that, perhaps even the Son of a Preacher man. Can't have that.

When I was that age I had a mash-up of Janis Ian ad Fear lyrics caught in my brain in a continuous loop...

"AND THE SUBURBAN SCUMBAGS THEY DON'T CARE! THEY JUST GET FAT AND DYE THEIR HAIR...at seventeen.

I'm glad the interwebby wasn't really a thing I had access to at that age, outside of my horrible poetry, I'm pretty sure it is all I would have wanted to talk about. Thankfully even then my tits were absolutely fantastic.  They still are.  (Wishlist in profile.)

A small group of my friends would bang just about anything. Their goal was to go home with a girl from the bar every night, there were nights that the pickings were (not) slim.

Why? Did you get one size up in yours just by looking at her?

Nadie_AZ: "I refuse to put my daughter in a situation where her self esteem is completely destroyed. She is there to learn. This whole time she was missing out on an education while we were all sitting in a room discussing her boobs. How often does this happen to your sons? Seems like another way to keep girls uneducated."

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


They're referring to talking about their son's boobs.

FTFA:Barber also posted a video to her Facebook page, which shows someone describing a shirt that a male student had worn to Joplin High School without any apparent repercussions.
The person in the video said the shirt read: "Our erections are harder, stronger and last longer."


Fat shaming AND misogynist double standard, in Missouri of all places? Why am I totally not surprised?

Damn straight. In high school in the early 80's, there was a girl who thought it was a good idea to wear overalls with no top underneath to high school. She spent the whole day trying to hold the boobies under the bib.

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?

WTF!!!??? That is the most demure and appropriate outfit short of a burka. WTF is wrong with that teacher?

One of my friends did too. Her back hurt all the time. The attention was ridiculous. And she couldn't find any tops that fit. She totally blossomed after the surgery, it was amazing to see. She stood differently, interacted differently. It was a life-changer for her.

BTW, the girl in TFA is *not* busty at all.

MikeyFuccon: There is nothing indecent about that top, and Miss Barber is not at all "plus-sized."

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: [img.fark.net image 695x948]

Intentional, or Freudian?

Aside from that, the outfit of the girl on the left is much less school appropriate than Miss Barber's, in my opinion. What is her excuse?

I suspect a personality conflict going beyond looks.


I was listening to a couple female high school teachers chat at a coffeehouse the other day. They were talking about how sadistic the students are.  IMHO, they shouldn't stoop so low to be offended by what a student says or does. That's a sign of immaturity on the teachers' side.
