Should Guys Be Allowed to Wear Skirts in School?

Some schools place limits on how much skin a girl can show -- how short her skirt is, etc. -- but Calvert High School in Maryland is trying to flesh out how that applies to one student's unique take on the dress code. Warren Evans, a bisexual student at Calvert High, was suspended for wearing a skirt, and he says it doesn't violate the school's dress code.

Evans told NBC Washington, "I don't think [it violated the dress code]. Why not? It didn’t say anywhere in the code of conduct or dress code that says boys can't dress like girls ... Some people aren't tolerant of that type of thing." Officials have not commented publicly on the situation, but say the dress code is not gender-specific. Some parents have sided with the school, arguing that boys in dresses would be a distraction. Do you think guys should be allowed to wear skirts during school hours?

    Then what about men's skirts being in style for men? THAT is the double standard!

    A man wearing a dress is not a unisex garment. Girl pants are girl pants. Don't you ppl. know girl pants from men pants. (which side it buttons on) or do you know? or do you have amnesia from eating too many doughnuts and fast food hamburgers?

    Who gives a damn? Let him wear what he wants and if you are going to go by that rule in the end then you better damn well make all the girls wearing boys clothes change too. Tight asses.

    That's worse than guys wearing girls skinny jeans.... EEWWWW. Just look how low in the back they try to wear them now to show off the plumbers crack, wonder how high they will try to wear them to try to show off their dong... NO THANKS. Put some decent jeans on and wear them properly.

    Absolutely not! Distraction? Oh hell ya, it's a distraction. This kid's gonna need his own private security guard.

    Look, if my kindergartener can't wear a dress simply because the short sleeve/strap area isn't 2-3 fingers wide and it's a so called distraction, then this is surely a 5 alarm distraction.

    ehh went threw this in High School, been there and no way should he be allowed to wear a skirt in High School. HE can wait until he is 18 or out of High School before he wants to take on these giants. There are many decisions that kids in High School feel justified in doing and are STOPPED for good reasons, they ARE NOT ADULTS YET.

    Not to mention the guys shoes.This issue is so outdated..we grew up in a unisex world and that was the 1960's early 1970's where we got an ear full from our grandmas(rarely our grandpas!lol.).To hear the same Victorian old fashioned BS now coming from guys and gals under the age of say fourty is just nuts!.Ttalking about short skirts-how about long T shirts!?.LMAO.
