Illinois Middle School Says Girls Can’t Wear Leggings. What’s Next? Burkas?
Geezus. For real? In 2014? In the United States of America?
Middle-school girls in Evanston, Ill., are picketing for the right to wear leggings. Sophie Hasty, 13, told the Evanston Review that teachers at Haven Middle School informed female students this month that leggings are “too distracting to boys” to be fit for the classroom.
The lesson to be taught here is to boys, not girls.
What’s next? Burkas? The Taliban forces women to wear burkas for exactly the same reason…boys and men just can’t control themselves when they look at the female body…even if it’s covered in leggings. Males can be so weak when it comes down to it but, natch, women and girls pay the price because men wield the power. They’ve got the guns.
You go Sophie!
