Schools dress codes are often a subject of controversy, in every country, where arguments are focused on decorum, and there are always at least two opposing factions.
There are those who argue that at school you should wear clothes that are not too informal, such as not wearing flip-flops and short shorts in the summer; and then there are those who insist that it is not about seeing a bare leg or shoulder. Every institution has internal rules that must be followed – but not everyone agrees with them. In a video on TikTok, a mother named Stasia shared her story. Documenting her daughter’s crusade against the “absurd” dress code rules at school, rules that seemed to impact the girls the most.
According to Stasia, her daughter broke the dress code by showing up to class in shorts and a tank top, and the school gave her an oversized T-shirt to cover herself up. As a result, the teenager organized a protest in which the boys also wore crop tops to school. Due to this protest movement, the institute decided to punish only the girls. Stasia supports her daughter despite the fact that she has used vulgar language with the school administrator about the dress code, especially given the obvious disparity between boys and girls.
In a subsequent video, the mom recounted how her daughter organized more protests: “Today she organized a day where women will wear white tank tops with messages written on them. My 19-year-old son helped her write her message last night, which asks: “Is my cleavage distracting you as you read the front of my shirt?”.
In one of her videos, the mother reiterated, “My children oppose teachers who discriminate.”. Despite not being suspended, Stasia’s daughter was removed from the teacher-pupil school board. When she was sent to the Headmaster’s office, a boy went with her and asked the administration why he hadn’t also been warned for wearing a crop top. However, the administration just told the boy to go back to class, where he immediately began cutting his shirt even shorter, with a pair of scissors, resulting in him being punished as well.
Stasia’s followers commented, “I love that the boys support her and put their lives on the line.”. Another follower said, “I am trying so hard to teach my children to be like your daughter.”.
All the girls were given an oversized t-shirt to cover themselves up with, but the t-shirts were large enough to cover up their shorts as well. A second time, the girls were warned since the t-shirts covering their shorts supposedly made them look like they were in their underwear.
The final thought of the mom is to express how happy she is to see the growing solidarity between girls and boys, who are now on the same page: “It seems that boys are beginning to understand that it is more righteous to stand with girls.”
