What’s particularly interesting here, at least for me, is that it seems as though the students aren’t so much taking issue with the fact that they can’t wear whatever they want so much as the female students are taking issue with the fact that most of the dress code is hindering female dress options and crushing the curvier girls for being just that: curvy and still a teenager (god forbid). In that sense it actually becomes a feminist protest—working against out-dated conventions of propriety which target women as the source of all “disgusting” sexuality/sexual activity—rather than a protest regarding freedom of speech (wherein the speech is represented by clothing choice) alone. Interested to see how this one turns out.
