High School Boys Wear Off-Shoulder Tops to Protest Against ‘Sexist’ Dress Code

by Neha Monga

When the students of San Benito High School, California returned to school for a new term, they were in for a big shock. The administration sent around 20 girls back home for wearing off-shoulder shirts. The girls were told that they were found to be disobeying the school’s code of conduct.

At this point the school’s male students decided to show solidarity with their fellow classmates and unite against the sexist dress code rules.

A group of boys came to school the next day wearing the same kind of off-shoulder tops that the girls were sent home for.

The school says wearing off-shoulder tops has been banned for years but was enforced only on August 14, according to Yahoo Style.

 “The dress code policy hasn’t been an issue the past two years I have been here,” a 16-year-old student at the school, on condition of anonymity told Yahoo Style.

She added that the “administration says that it is for our own safety, but I don’t understand what they are keeping us safe from”.

“I really don’t think that there is someone dumb enough to pull down a shirt first of all – they have no right to touch me or anything else at all,” she said.

The school released a written clarification countering ‘the notion that strapless shirts are a distraction to male students’. The Principal said that the school neither supports, nor believes it to be an appropriate reason to ban the same.

The actual reason for enforcing such a dress code, according to the statement, was to prevent the possibility of any student from being a victim to any incident where they could intentionally or unintentionally be humiliated.

These men have set a perfect example with their show of solidarity and support towards the unfair rule.
