They wanted to expel her from school for wearing “INAPPROPRIATE” clothes. Check her blouse!
Decades ago, the most popular dress code for school was a uniform designed by that school. The scholar's uniform was an important part of the social life and it was even used to identify students from one particular school. Finally, it was also a symbol that students identified themselves with the values followed by the school.
Nowadays, there are only few schools that keep this rigour in dressing style. The vast majority of schools are indifferent to their student’s clothing, as long as they respect the general rules. One of the most important rules says that you can’t reveal too much or be too extravagant.
There are schools that have their own dress codes, but what happened to Kaitlyn Juvik in Helena Institute in Montana is a bit worrying regarding the rules imposed by a school.
A month ago, Kaitlyn was sent to the assistant of principal of her institute for violating the school dress code. However… let’s say that opinion about violating the dress code doesn’t have much support in reality. Why?
On the photograph shown below you can see the young woman with the blouse that she was wearing that day. Do you see anything inappropriate or offensive? We think there’s nothing wrong and we might even declare a contest and give a prize to everyone that will guess what was the reason of her detention.
Well, it seems that there was someone at her school who complained about some piece of Kaitlyn's clothing. Or better said, the absence of one of her clothing items.
Kaitlyn was sent to the principal’s office because someone felt offended by her apparel. When she got there, she discovered that the reason of her visit there was something she would never have thought about. The absence of her bra was the problem. The girl was instructed about the way of dressing and she was also asked to cover herself or to put the bra on.
Kaitlyn couldn't believe in what she heard. Her clothes surely weren’t too revealing. They weren’t transparent or sleeveless. Everything was just fine. During the interview, she said: “Everything I was told was wrong… If you don’t show too much and you’re covered, you should be able not to wear a bra. This is wrong on so many levels. Let’s start by the fact that there are no scholar instructions about the underwear”. She also added that her blouse didn't show a thing and that this offended person had to stare very carefully to notice that she wasn’t wearing a bra.
That is why Kaitlyn did what every other strong woman would do in her position. You have to check it out.
Kaitlyn started and took leadership over protest against her Institute because she couldn't accept this foolish decision about her detention. Other schoolgirls decided to support her and started to attend classes without their bras on. Those boys who also decided to protest with Kaitlyn paraded through the school corridors with bras over their shirts. In an interview taken during the protest Kaitlyn said: “The fact that I was told that I displease people offends me because it’s my body. It’s natural and I don’t understand how I can displease anyone”.
In addition to that, she created a Facebook protesting page called “No Bra No Problem” which has now over 8 000 likes. Kaitlyn's mother supports her and accepts everything Kaitlyn does. She admits that it’s not only about wearing or not wearing bras, but it’s all about sending a message that we should be ashamed of our body. This should never happen.
What is your opinion about this? Do you think that school’s decision was correct?
