Poll: Is Dress Code Necessary? 29

Dress code is a very controversial topic here at Stacey. Some people think that it is targeted at girls while other consider it to be a crucial part of school. What do you think?

  1. I don’t really think it’s targeted at girls. They just have more things to watch out for (in the eyes of administrators).
    Some rules make sense, like wearing shorts that don’t show anything bad, but that one is still extreme.
    I do, however, think it prevents self-expression. Like, why can’t I die my hair or wear a tank top?
    And it’s kind of impractical. It’s really hard to find shorts that reach your fingertips or a top that doesn’t show your bra strap.
    Personally, I find those hideous purple “you’ve been dress-coded” shirts to be *way* more distracting than a bra strap or a streak in someone’s hair.

  2. These Rules are fair I don’t care what you think I as a guy don’t want to see shortes that are so short you see skin or tops that are so short that you see lots of skin its not good for people’s eyes. some people at this school want to save there eyes some people at this school have religious beliefs that don’t want there children to see stuff like what men and women want to wear. now I end with saying there is a need for a dress code! and you need to enforce it. I’m ready for the criticism ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank You.

      The majority of dress code rules are targeted to girls. There are no tube tops allowed, any shirts that show off your bare mid-drift, tank tops with spaghetti straps, low cut shirts, and “short” shorts, (Shorts that have less than a 4″ inseam). Now do those things have to do with girls or boys? Well, the majority of boys don’t wear crop tops on a usual basis.

      Boys basically have a right to wear practically anything. The only things they can’t wear anything that drug endorsed, relates to gangs or is downright inappropriate.

      “I as a guy donโ€™t want to see shorts that are so short you see skin or tops that are so short that you see lots of skin…”
      You still prove my point to be true. by saying that you as a guy want to choose what a girl is wearing. For some reason, men have a choice on what girls have to wear. Are girls in charge of the limits of your clothing??? Probably not.

      **Disclaimer: I don’t mean to be mean I am just speaking my opinion.

  4. I think that dress code is very much targeted to girls. My best friends have received many dress code warnings for their “short” shorts. When they asked the person who dressed coded them what the problem was the person said, “Boys can’t handle themselves.” My group of friends was appalled by that statement.

    • I agree with what you said, and the fact that ‘Boys can not handle themselves’ when girls wear what they want, should not exclude girls from expressing themselves, but instead boys should learn how to control themselves. They should not punish girls for this and leave the excuse as “Boys will be boys” but instead change their ways and allow girls to express themselves.

  5. I think that the dress code is more targeted toward girls because most of the rules are about them.
    I think that there should be a more appropriate amount of what girls can wear but its fine to have shorts and put on a tank top once in a while its hot out here. Its California! But the boys should be appropriate with the girls because girls are not objects they are living people just like everyone else. Boys (Including Me) should be more focased about there work also adding its none of there buisness if a girl is showing off some skin, its the girls privacy not ours.

  6. What an exciting debate! You all have good points to bring up. I support both sides but I think that even though it is considered “pointless” or “unfair”, it mostly depends on each individual rules or expectation because some of the rules are necessary to keep things appropriate here at Stacey and some limits the rights of students to express themselves.

  7. of course the dress code is targeted more at girls. Most likely because normal boys usually dont wear some short shorts or spaghetti straps or whatever is in there. Just let girls wear whatever and let boys wear whatever and see what happenes

  8. For a quick saying first of all if there was no dress code the 1 to 5 women who get assaulted would most likely get shot right up! then you would want it back!! plus what’s the point of wearing the short stuff all your doing is making an image of yourself.

    • Okay, I see you’ve started to get kinda frustrated with this whole debate. You seem to have some good points, but it’s hard to even understand what you mean when you’re ranting.

      But back to my point. As Joseph previously mentioned, some of the shorter garments are due to this weather. It gets up to ninety degrees here; I don’t want to wear a parka.

      I would also like to point out that, especially for tall people like myself, it can be hard to find shorts that are long enough. And the majority of shirts for juniors are either spaghetti strap or tank tops that show your bra strap.
