Told her short shorts were too short, 11th-grader Lindsey Stocker charged the dress code at her Quebec high school is sexist and “body shaming.”
Girls’ fingertips can’t go beyond the bottom of their shorts or skirts, which discriminates against the long-armed.
After failing the dress code inspection, I felt very attacked,” Lindsey told Canadian news outlet CBC.
She printed 20 sheets of paper that read, “Instead of shaming girls for their bodies, teach boys that girls are not sexual objects.” She posted them around the school and drew a one-day suspension.
Teach teenage boys that teenage girls in short shorts are not sexual objects. Oh, yeah. That’s going to work.
