Let me tell you something about today. Today was the hottest day of the year in New Jersey, I woke up sweating despite air conditioning because it was 95 degrees. Now, i did what any logical person would do and I put on my favorite pair of shorts so i wouldn’t be sweating throughout the day.
Even in my shorts i was sweating my balls off but I went through half of my day as normal, no boys stared at my ass or tried to grope me in public yet when i went to the the cafeteria a teacher told me to go to the office because he finds my shorts inappropriate. I head down to the office to find a group of girls wearing shorts and skirts sitting in a small room in the office, we where all ordered to call our parents or to change into the clothes they had offered us from the school store. These items of clothing included sweatpants and a large heavy sweatshirt. I obviously refused to where those because it was 95 degrees and when you are sweating the key to cool down is NOT to put on more clothes. They told me I would have to stay in that room the whole day if it came down to it.
I was able to leave the office when my friend gave me a pair of yoga pants. The man who made me go down to the office brought down several other girls as I was leaving, at this point they didn’t care how long the shorts where they just sent everyone who was wearing a pair down. They warned me that if I put my shorts back on they would right me up.
I put them back on anyway because just walking down the hallway in those yoga pants made me faint, dizzy,and extremely hot. Thats the main issue, it is hot enough for people to pass out in school but to the school system they would rather a girl suffer from a heat stroke then to have a boy become turned on. My shorts don’t say “COme fuck me in the middle of class” they say,”Its warm out”
The sexualizing of innocent students is not okay
Risking students health is not okay
and tHE LACK OF FEMINISM IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WILL NEVER BE OKAY
Today was literally horrible
I hate our school so much
My sister keeps asking me if I want to go see The Great Cosby with her and I don’t have it in my heart to correct her.
Street harassment is not a compliment.
cultural genocide in North America
This, this right here, this is why “white people” cannot wear our things, cannot appropriate our customs or languages. Because y’all did this. y’all continue to do this too.
well then you motherfuckers need to stop wearing jeans, watching tv, eating our food and wearing clothes of ours, stop using cell phones, and pretty much anything your “culture” hasnt contributed to.
the shit can go both ways, and i can wear what ever the fuck i want, just like you can.
although, i wouldnt wanna wear that shit because WHY would i need to.
people on here are fucking idiotic.
What some white people fail to understand is that, yes, if you were a minority who had their land and rights stolen from them from a majority and then be continued to be seen as the lesser for years and years to come, then sure you would be pissed off is that majority was taking aspects from your culture that they stole from you and using it to aid their fashion. You just gotta put yourself in their shoes and not decide for them whether they are allowed to be offended or not.
The fact is that being told you’re doing something offensive is not oppression. Not having your cultures past struggles acknowledged out of your own convenience or guilt, is.
Tellin’ it like it is
I don’t quite know what this is referring to and I do love The Story So Far’s music and I might have read this wrong, but it is always really unfortunate to see members of bands referring to some of their fans as “fan girls” in a derogatory nature. People enjoy shows differently. Some stage dive and some like to just listen to the show. They’re at the show for you, and that is amazing. Not every band has fans like that. Many are struggling in their scene, many don’t have the opportunities that these bands do. Just be thankful.
Everything Katt Nelson is doing on tumblr today is so correct.
