    A Chattanooga, Tennessee, high school athletics director has been placed on administrative leave after a video was posted, and then deleted, of him saying boys should “blame the girls” if they were upset about the dress code, WTVC reported. The Chattanooga Times Free Press and other outlets obtained copies of the video and re-uploaded them. The video was originally posted on Soddy-Daisy High School’s YouTube page, according to WTVC. In it, Jared Hensley faces the camera and talks about the school’s policy of not wearing athletic shorts. “I know, boys, you’re thinking, ‘I don’t understand why, it’s not fair, athletic...

    Rochester, N.Y., resident Herbert Smith wasn’t aware of the controversy he was about to create when he was moved to post a photo of a local bar’s dress code to his Facebook page. But since he took to social media to share the long list of items that can’t be worn inside the Murphy’s Law Irish Pub in his neighborhood, some people are calling out the bar for enforcing a “racist” dress code. While making plans with a friend to meet up at a nearby bar, Smith received a picture of the questionable dress code posted in the front window...

    A South Side bar owner’s dress code is generating calls for a boycott. Andrew Balint recently posted the dress code for Twelve Whiskey BBQ and it began circulating on social media. African-Americans in Pittsburgh began to take notice, saying the guidelines seem to target them. “I'm not going to give my money and enrich your livelihood if you don't respect me as a person. This is a matter of respect,” said Khamil Scantling. Twelve's dress code, titled "proper attire," contains a long list of clothing that's no longer accepted, including Timberland boots, Air Jordan sneakers, baggy clothing, flashy jewelry and...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - The dress code at Kickback Jack’s has some customers a little upset. “The sign is bogus,” said customer Zaena Graham. “I think it’s a bunch of…rubbish.” The sign posted inside its restaurant lists the dress code and behavior requirements. The list starts off prohibiting negative attitudes, offensive language, and any attire containing profanity. “In a family atmosphere other than just a sports bar, I think profanity should be restricted in any public place,” said John Baucom, a customer. “The first part sounded OK, but it just got, to me, more discriminatory,” said Laurie Washington, who was...
  • Tehran Police: No More Arrests for Flouting [Islamic] Dress Code

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Police in Iran’s capital said Thursday they will no longer arrest women for failing to observe the Islamic dress code in place since the 1979 revolution. The announcement signaled an easing of punishments for violating the country’s conservative dress code, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year. But hard-liners opposed to easing such rules still dominate Iran’s security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

    A bar that wants to maintain a “classy atmosphere” has released a dress code, which some are calling racist. The Bottled Blonde, a pizzeria and beer garden in Chicago, recently posted a sign on its doors outlining a lengthy dress code. Here are a few examples from the list of banned items: “No Excessively Baggie, Sagging, Ripped, Dirty, Frayed, Overly Flashy, or Bright clothing. No hawaiian, tie dye, floral, skull prints, or anything else obnoxious. No gang attire (leather cuts, colors, or insignias) and no camouflage. No Embellishments or Statement [attire]. No plain white tees, long tees, denim, flannel …...

    Misogyny has been a hot topic in 2017. According to a new report from Axios, nowhere is this more evident than in the office President Donald Trump. President Trump has allegedly enforced a dress code upon female members of staff in the White House, insisting that they need to ‘dress like women’. A source, who worked on Trump’s campaign, also stated that the President places an exacting emphasis on appearance of his staff and insists that they ‘look the part’. The source also suggested that most women feel pressure to wear dresses in order to impress him and commented that...

The rebels warned of “drastic action” if anyone violated the prohibition.The ban, however, does not apply to restaurants with a common hall that don’t have partitions...

    A new dress code at Boston Latin School has sparked outrage by students. More than 500 students have signed an online petition protesting the school’s new dress code, which bans several things such as spaghetti straps and “gang-related clothing or colors.” Students say the policy discriminates against female students and minorities.

    The College Fix ^ | 7/22/2016 | Samantha Figueroa
    When a law professor wore a Black Lives Matter shirt to class earlier this year, she saw it as a teaching tool and exercise in academic freedom. Some of her “concerned students” saw the gesture as an attempt to push her “personal beliefs” on them, but also a threat to their ability to become practicing lawyers – and told her so in a much-derided memo. The incident was revived this month after Inside Higher Ed confirmed the institution was southern California’s Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary. Though Leary’s public critique of...

    The next day, all of us who signed the petition were called into a meeting where we thought our proposal would be discussed. Instead, we were informed that due to our “unprofessional” behavior, we were being let go from our internships. We were told to hand in our ID badges and to gather our things and leave the property ASAP. We were shocked. The proposal was written professionally like examples I have learned about in school, and our arguments were thought out and well-reasoned. We weren’t even given a chance to discuss it. The worst part is that just before...

    A reader writes: I was able to get a summer internship at a company that does work in the industry I want to work in after I graduate. Even though the division I was hired to work in doesn’t deal with clients or customers, there still was a very strict dress code. I felt the dress code was overly strict but I wasn’t going to say anything, until I noticed one of the workers always wore flat shoes that were made from a fabric other than leather, or running shoes, even though both of these things were contrary to the...

    A Texas high school student was punished with in-school suspension last Monday after a teacher discovered he was wearing an American flag T-shirt, FOX 4 reported. The student, a junior whose name is Jaegur, was wearing the shirt -- which featured an American flag design with an eagle in the foreground -- at Seagoville High School in Dallas when an administrator determined the shirt violated the school dress code. Jaegur’s mom, Shelly Goode, fears the suspension will show up as a permanent mark on his record, ruining any chance her son can earn a scholarship through the ROTC program. “He...

    This probably looks like an unusual topic for Hot Air, but the rather frivolous nature of the subject speaks to some deeper societal questions which cross all sorts of boundaries. In Connecticut, one high school issued guidelines for proper attire at the prom this year and it has some of the teenagers up in arms. (And a lot more than just arms are visible in some cases.) Shelton High School sent out a memo letting families know that their daughters should not show up looking like Lady Gaga on the red carpet when prom night comes. This is apparently...

    When 16-year-old Gabi Finlayson went to Paris with her mother and brother in December, she only bought one thing: a light pink dress with lace overlay that fell just below the knee. She planned to wear it to an upcoming high school dance. “I loved it,” she tells Yahoo Parenting. “It reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. It seemed like a classic dress I could wear forever.” So on Saturday night, the Utah high school junior couldn’t wait to show up at the dance. “Being a 16-year-old girl, it’s hard to find something that makes you feel pretty and when you...

    A Minneapolis night club’s dress code aimed at forcing patrons to dress presentably is being attacked as racist by people who apparently think being black means dressing like a slob. barlouiednewcode0708According to Minneapolis Fox affiliate KSMP, the nightclub Bar Louie has posted a sign barring customers in “flat bill hats,” “long plain white T-shirts,” “excessively baggy clothing” or sporting “large chains.” That struck some observers as basically barring blacks. “If you do not want African-Americans to frequent your establishment, then maybe you should just say that and not just break it down to the dress code,” one man told the...

    The first thing you should know is that I'm guilty. I am a part-time professional dress code offender. I wear jeans to work when I don't plan on interviewing anyone that day. I used to keep a pair of flip-flops under my desk. For all I know, they're still there, buried under something else. When I told co-workers I'd have to confess to my sartorial sins, I thought they'd tell me: Nonsense, you always dress well. I was wrong. In my defense, I clean up well for editorial board meetings. I like to think I dress well for a newspaper...

    Nathaniel Wentz is a 17-year-old kid who plays quarterback for his high school football team. He also works — well, he used to work — during his free time. Why did we say he used to work? Because he was fired from his gig at Odyssey 1 family entertainment center in Tacoma, Washington after he wore a Broncos jersey to work last Sunday. Why was he wearing a Broncos jersey? Because his boss told employees that they could wear jerseys of their favorite teams to work since it was the day of the AFC and NFC Championship Games. Wentz's manager...

    The Pentagon on Wednesday relaxed its rules governing the religious apparel and facial hair that troops can wear or maintain while in uniform, permitting in some cases tattoos, body piercings and other religious items.  The Defense Department issued the changes via a directive Wednesday afternoon. As part of the military's changing approach to making religious accommodations, the new policy will allow service members to sport different kinds of religious garb and hairstyles so long as they don't have an "adverse effect on military readiness, mission accomplishment, unit cohesion, and good order and discipline."  The changes create several new categories, besides...

    Smart women don’t show cleavage — or at least that’s what one high-powered Manhattan law firm is telling its female employees. The legal firm Clifford Chance sent female associates a bizarre memo advising them to stop giggling, squirming and showing cleavage while speaking in public, irking female employees who called the tips sexist, the legal news website Abovethelaw.com reports.
