Is Slutty Wednesday Awesome or Inappropriate?

Wasn't there a time, not that long ago, when student protests were, you know, about something? In New York City's legendary Stuyvesant High School, kids are bucking the administration en masse and taking on another critical issue: dress codes. They fought back hard recently at new regulations in a campaign they called "Slutty Wednesday," during which they wore risque outfits to school and passed around flyers that said "Redress the Dress Code." Edgy!



Some of the draconian rules the brave students are protesting require, according to The New York Times that any sayings and illustrations on clothing should be in “good taste.” Another calls for shorts, dresses and skirts to extend at least beyond the fingertips when arms are extended straight down. A third bans the exposing of “shoulders, undergarments, midriffs and lower backs.”

“We work our asses off here and school is about learning. Clothing is not important,” ninth grader Lucy Greider told The New York Post. Some of the boys protested the new rules as well, claiming offense that the administration assumed they were unable to control themselves in the presence of girls in short skirts, and definitely not because they want to see girls in short skirts. So what do you think about "Slutty Wednesday?"

    The girls are dressed fine, it's the boys that usually need some educating on proper dress. Pants hanging of your ass, showing your drawers is dressing like a fool. Why would you want to emulate criminals in lock up? That's how they look when they take your belt and shoe laces away.

    I recently heard that it was a style fostered by law enforcement to aid in catching "runners", who try to flee pursuit.

    Did you hate it because of the *APPEARANCE* or did it interfere with the *JOB* itself?
    I heard it from an ex-LA Captain a couple of years ago.
    After seeing a few on "COPS" fall because of their pants falling around their ankles, it sure made sense to me.

    Sorry kids, the world won't change because you don't 'get it'. Dressing 'slutty' as a protst to wearing skirts longer than your fingertips? Uh, give me a break.....I measured how long that would be on the girls/women around me and we all agreed that was way too short for school. How does dressing like a bunch of $2 tricks combat the dress code? It's a stupid idea and just serves to distract from the point of school.....education.

    Buck up high-schoolers. Like it or not, clothing IS important, in all areas of life. Life will throw much bigger demands at you very soon, so consider the dress code a minor rehearsal for tougher things to come. Put the proper clothes on, and hold on tight!

    Girls could not wear any type of slacks or pants when I was in high school. Boys could not even wear jeans. School uniforms would be a great solution.

    At least they have a form of freedom. Grade school, high school, all of those years, I had to wear a uniform, and we still had a dress code for the 5 days a year having free dress.

    I go to school with a freaking ugly, itchy, boring, conservative UNIFORM. You are complaining about your uniform-free dress code and wearing shorts to rebel? Even if they aren't as slutty as expected, I'd laugh out loud seeing you wear a long poo-colored plaid skirt that itches so bad!!!

    My school had a worse dress code and I hated it. We couldn't wear holes or faux holes in clothes, shorts and skirts had to be below the knee, no v-necks, no flip flops, no rubber bracelets, no feathers in our hair or as earrings, no beads in hair, no hair dyed an unnatural color, which included auburn hair, no skulls on anything. It sucked, and we hated the school board for it.

    I think that students have a right to choose how to dress. Most will certainly wear decent clothing.

    Think back when you were in school. The kids who "bucked" the system, in anyway, did they amount to anything. These days, most kids buck the system. Also, would you pick as your dentist a women dressed like a whore?

    Because they are actually asking such a question in the first place. Really? They gotta ask?!? This question is 2000 years old (1 Corinthians), except that back then some took it to the extreme. Today, they say: “We work our asses off here and school is about learning. Clothing is not important.” So, it doesn't matter what we do with our bodies - its all about the spirit (substitute "mind" for the modern era). Paul said "no", not that it isn't about the spirit, but what we _do_ with our bodies is important too.

    Further, the teen years can be a difficult time for people to control their impulses; this partly has to do with brain development (check out Scientific American for more on that).. Sometimes teens "do not always exercise good judgment, so they sometimes fail to make good or proper decisions" (the quotes mean that's the nice way to say it). And remember, thanks to modern methods of raising up little Brandon (6th most popular boy's name of 1997), some of these guys don't have a lot of practice in impulse control. So, you want to...give them something to "think" about by the way you dress? I thought school was about learning. Surround the guys with girls dressed like sluts, and it's a sure bet that their learning quotient will decline on Wednesdays.

    "We work our asses off here and school is about learning. Clothing is not important,” ninth grader Lucy Greider told The New York Post. If this is the case, then why not learn to adhere to the school's rules, regulations and laws and focus on your education which will hopefully make you better equipped to handle the challenges of the world instead of wasting precious time fighting for what you're wearing which as you say is not important.

    You MUST be STUPID ANNND SLUTTY too then eh? Grow up, develop some self respect, learn to keep your knees together, get an education, and MAYBE you'll become somebody more than some wannabee dressing like a HO.

    Oh, buy clothes that fit too. :-P

    Women will begin to try to out do each other and/or compete and it will get out of hand. The work force already has so many distractions and what are we trying to do to our children which Hollywood is already doing to our children. Where are the boundaries?

    Time enough to be "slutty" after school or on the week-ends. Getting your education comes first! Like being slutty is something great to advertise. The girls who want this are undoubtly already known as sluts so there's no need to have a dress code. Its ridiculous.

    If you had checked your spelling you would have seen your type-o. That's more important than showing your "sexy". Are you so insecure you have advertise?

    Not necessarily. If your secure in your sexuality you can dress in a bag. The point is why be concerned with dressing "slutty", the term used to represent the style of clothing they want to wear, be an issue when there education is most important! What does the word "slutty" mean. Gee, I hope you have a daughter that's says "Mom, they won't let us dress like sluts at school! That's so unfair!" Sounds reasonable right?
