Response to Gravitycollapse (Original post)

18. I trashed that thread yesterday

Just based on the title alone.

I went to a boys high school with girls in it - by that I mean it went co-ed two years before I transferred. We had uniforms and our argument was not the knee length skirts or trousers - but the colors (maroon, navy, and grey) that we were limited too. Senior year we won and were able to wear whatever color blouse, pants (including chinos) skirt or sweater we wanted.

I don't disagree with "prep school" attire for all students but my reasons have to do with driving women to not worry about their appearance AND taking away "some" of the "class" differences in class.

If we had a national school uniform every student would be in white button down shirts and navy, black, or khaki chinos or skirts. Parents could buy these online very cheap.

That said - I never needed to see the remarks that were linked to. Really - referring to adolescent girls as the perpetrators of seduction in the class room? Really?

I'm not playing in that sandbox at DU anymore. I'm not flinging the sand with women or men who will not acknowledge their own participation in gender stereotypes and dismissal as women as either crones or sexual beings. Especially when it does to the sexualization of female minors.
