NYC Schoolgirls Get ‘Slutty’ to Protest Dress Code
The Christian Diarist ^ | June 8, 2012 | JP

Posted on 06/08/2012 8:12:40 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

Students at New York City’s Stuyvesant High are unhappy with a dress code that bans girls from wearing Daisy Dukes and tank tops to school along with other such inappropriate clothing.

To protest the restriction on their supposed right to wear as little as possible to school, the girls held a so-called “Slutty Wednesday” demonstration this week. They complained that Stuyvesant’s dress code is unfair, particularly to well-endowed girls.

Lucy Greider, a Stuyvesant freshman, told the New York Post she’s been sent to the principal’s office 10 times this school year for showing off too much cleavage, midriff or shoulder.

“Sometimes the teachers will call you out in the hallway,” she whined, adding “I like what I wear. I want to have my own style in school.”

Meanwhile, boy students, protesting in solidarity with underdressed female classmates like Greider, complained that school administrators assume they cannot control their raging hormones when they’re in the company of teen-aged babes wearing next to nothing.

But it’s not like Stuyvesant is telling Greider and other female students that they have dress like Amish girls.

Its dress code, put in place last year, states that shoulders, underwear, midriffs, and lower backs are not to be exposed. Shorts, dresses and skirts must extend below a student’s finger tips with their arms straight at their sides.

In practical terms, that means Stuyvesant girls can’t wear tank tops, halter tops or sports tops (the kind often seen in workout videos). Nor can they wear short shorts, micro-miniskirts or itty bitty dresses.

It also means that Stuyvesant boys can’t wear wife beaters and “sags” to class.

The girls have to make do with clothes that don’t make them look like teen-age street walkers. The boys have to do without gear that makes them look like they just got out of the joint.

If the upper-middle-class Stuyvesant girls just have to get their hoochie on, if the white-bread Stuyvesant boys feel they need to represent that they’re living the thug life, they all can do so after school each day, on weekends, on spring break and on summer vacay.

The pity is that the parents of the students who staged the New York City high school’s “Slutty Wednesday” protest gave it their tacit approval.

They are obviously unmindful of the Scripture that advises parents to train up a child in the way he (or she) should go. Otherwise their teens wouldn’t go to school each day wearing whatever – or not wearing whatever – their precious little hearts desire.

So, then, since so many of the Stuyvesant kids are apparently getting no adult guidance at home as to appropriate school attire, the responsibility has fallen to the New York City high school’s principal and teachers.

Those beleaguered educators are not the bad guys in the highly-publicized dispute over Stuyvesant’s student dress code. It’s the Stuyvesant parents who don’t care how slutty their kids look when they leave the house.

I hope the spoiled brats learn about dress codes the hard way when they show at at an interview and do not get the job or admitted to a college because they dressed like sluts.

Here in L.A. as I drive into work I play a little game.

“High School girl on her way to school, or streetwalker after a long night out.”

It is sometimes difficult to spot the difference - if there is one.

What sane person allows their 16 year old girl to dress like that?

And the SCHOOL needs to enforce a dress code? The SCHOOL???

I would ask “Where are the parents?” but I know it is more like “Where is the parent?” singular. And the answer would most likely not be one I would want to hear.

I totally agree with this.

The principal should hold a press conference and announce that the dress code is going to be abolished.

After the thunderous applause recedes, then announce mandated uniforms for the girls and shirt/tie for boys.

Also, require the parents to purchase them.
The more ridiculous, the better.

There is a school where I grew up that had such a policy and after 6 months, all violence and dress problems vanished. Boys treated the girls with much more respect as well.

“These Stuyvesant kids are considered the best and brightest of the next generation. Heaven help us.”

Stuy is one of the most difficult and most selective schools in the country. Public or Private. There is a special exam to get in and only the top 5% are accepted. The demographics are 50% Asian / 42% White / 4% Black / 4% Latino

From my experience, the best and the brightest tend to party the hardest. Most work very hard but many are very talented and don’t need to do much work. Especially when young. In my high school, nearly every single one of the top 10 ranked boys smoked pot pretty much every day. Sex wasn’t in short supply either.

Stuy has some of the highest rates of drug use of any High School. It also has some of the highest SAT scores and acceptances to Ivy League schools.

Sport coat and tie required at my Prep School in the Sixties! Of course I had one of those sport coats that changed colors depending on how the light hit it. And my ties were all hand-painted silk ties from the Forties. The one with purple fish scales and lightning bolts was my fav.
Hathaway Brown and Laurel girls all wore uniforms!

Honestly, they don’t look any different than the teens I see out during the summer here. That said, not appropriate for school, and the shorts could definitely come down longer. I went to a Catholic school and wore an uniform, and I think that’s the best thing. It’s much easier.

School uniforms for the students and a smack in the head for the parents that allow their little angels to dress like this for school.

We had a foster daughter that snuck a pair of daisy dukes to school in her backpack. When we got the call about her attire my wife took a pair of my baggy sweats and red suspenders and had her change in the nurses office. The shorts were disposed of appropriately and she had to buy a new pair of jeans to replace the other ones she had thrown out.

Responsible parents make the difference

Aside from the exposed midriff on the right, I think it is O.K. for a high school girl.

I graduated from HS in 1971, when hot pants and mini-skirts were popular for girls.

It’s always been that way with many of the most creative and intelligent among us. Drug/alcohol use, promiscuity, mistresses, dangerous activities, etc.

It is said that “ignorance is bliss”. I think too much intelligence is almost a curse. Intoxication, dangerous sports and sex are a way to momentarily stop the mind from constantly seeing our harsh reality and momentarily feel that “bliss”.

Here’s just a few world-famous figures from the top of my head. Remember that most people like that can easily keep it secret. There are many that we will never know about.

Alexander the Great

Ben Franklin

Ulysses Grant

Ernest Hemingway

Howard Hughes

Albert Einstein

Steve Jobs

I remember going to school in the 60’s and seeing the Catholic school girls all formal like in bobby sox, plaid skirt, white shirt and matching plaid tie.

In the 80’s I remember going to clubs and seeing hot girls dressed in bobby sox, plaid skirts, white shirts and no tie, but shirt open 3 buttons.

Which just goes to show, it isn’t the clothes that make the slut. It’s the slut that makes the clothes.

Those high school girls do not look slutty at all. They look like kids. Now in my day, I knew some girls who could take what they are wearing and make 3k a night in Atlantic City.

I went to high school in the late 1970s. Girls wore short skirts and hot pants to school. Never a complaint by me.

There isn’t 2 cents worth of difference between the dress of the 2 girls in the photo posted and the girls wearing hot pants on my HS campus.

In our county, the principals and teachers are not doing their part to support the parents and the entire voting community’s standards.

In my town, ( in one of the reddest counties in the nation) the mothers and fathers complain that their children leave the home modestly and appropriately dressed but then change their clothes once they are in school.

Unfortunately, the government school principals do** NOT** enforce the dress code that was approved by the school board. I guess it is above their pay grade.

Dress is an expression of speech and therefore there are fundamental conflicts between government owned and run schools and the First Amendment.

In private schools there is no such conflict. Dress codes are decided privately between the parent, principal, teachers, and members of the private school’s board of directors.

How about congratulating THIS SCHOOL and THIS PRINCIPAL for maintaining standards and condemning the obviously irresponsible parents who let the children dress like little tramps?

Let's face it the majority of the schools problems are irresponsible uninvolved parents.

This story clearly underscores that.

I do not congratulate any worker in the government owned and run schools. Why?

Answer:
Fundamentally, there is a conflict between government owned and run schooling and First Amendment human rights. It is a conflict for the student, the parent, and the taxpayer that can not be resolved.

In my county, the principal respects the First Amendment human rights of the students by allowing them free expression in dress, but tramples the First Amendment rights of the parents. In this school, in the article, the principal upholds the standards set by the voting mob, tramples the rights of students.

Within a government system of socialist-entitlement schools, this conflict can NOT be resolved. I should **congratulate** those who actively seek work within this system of inevitable human rights abuse?

As for this particular school, why are those kids still in government school? Hm? Why aren't these brilliant children finished with college by this time and working on their Ph.D. research? What a waste of talent and life.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If generations of children are sent into godless, socialist-entitlement, and compulsory state schools this is what eventually happens. We get moral degeneracy, socialism, and compliant prisoners of the state.

My grandmother ( born 1894) attended secular ( godless) government schools that merely nodded to God on occasion. How many generations of citizens is that? And...Every child since that time who has attended a godlessly secular government school since at least her time has learned to think and reason godlessly. They had to just to cooperate in the godlessly secular school. How could it be otherwise?

By the way, if hard core tyranny comes to the U.S., the oligarchy will not use cattle cars to haul the citizens off to the death camps. No. No. The” Powers that Be” will use big yellow school buses, and the sheeple will meekly board them just as they have been trained to do.

Well then how about condemning the parents for

A) Purchasing or allowing their little angels to purchase such clothes.

B) Allowing the children to wear clothes like that in public.

C) Not supervising them closely enough to make sure they were dressed appropriately.

Make no mistake the parents are the ones to blame here and only the parents.

Of course an intelligent conservative person would never jump to the wrong conclusion in spite of all of the evidence and blame the school. No they would never make rash statements or blame the school for the obvious poor parenting skills, or for spoiling their precious angels who would never think of doing something wrong. No a real conservative would never do that.

Ok...So, let's assume a parent is capable of controlling a teen’s dress. ( This is isn't always possible since many teens work and have their own money and have friends who are more than willing to lend clothing.)

Why should this child, and his family, be **FORCED** into assembly ( remember that “assembly” is a First Amendment human right) with children whose parents hold different standards and values regarding dress, or may tempt the socially, spiritually, and psychologically immature child to borrow inappropriate clothing? Why should taxpayers be forced to pay for this First Amendment abomination?
