Where have all of these conservative prudes been coming from as of late? I guess they’ve always been there, but it just seems like there’s been so many stories lately about young ladies getting victimized by schools aggressively seeking to push the pant-suit and victorian style dress style or something.
Anyways, the long and the short of it: women attending the University of Texas nursing program are being asked to refrain from wearing normal woman summer clothes because they prove too distracting to the other (read: male) students and faculty members.
What do these ‘revealing items’ include? Oh, how about: midriff-baring shirts, short-shorts, low-rise pants, low-cut shirts that reveal cleavage. Just the normal stuff that a woman might wanna wear in the dead middle of Texas during the summer where its probably like wearing a snow suit in the bowels of hell.
Next time, they should wear this just to make a statement:
I’m sure there’s air-conditioning and stuff like that on campus, but that’s totally besides the point. The university has no right to prevent women from wearing normal clothing on campus. This is so clearly pointed directly at women – I GUARANTEE that there’s piles and piles of university jock dudes running around campus totally shirtless wearing board shorts throwing around footballs or whatever kids like to do these days.
Are there any signs directed at them? No? Then fuck off!
I’m sick of reading about all of these cases of shit like this, especially on a college campus, where all of the students are grown women and deserve to have total control over themselves and what they wear!
