Letter to the Editor: Rose Dalton

The Rockwood School District Dress Code is sexist to women and influences the fetishization of the female body. First of all, Showing a little bit of stomach and shoulders shouldn’t be enforced at all. Nothing is wrong with a girl getting dressed how she wants and her stomach being visible. People shouldn’t be sexualizing that girl’s body. She shouldn’t have to feel forced to hide because the school blamed the girl’s body for what happened. How is it fair to the girl she has to wear a jacket all day, but the jock in the gym can rip off his shirt? A male will look at a woman and find anything they can to find sexual about them. I think it is time for the school district to stop punishing women for being “sexual” for showing skin and it is time for men to be punished for sexualizing women in school.
