She Was Sent Home For A Dress Code Violation, She Returned With Something That Shut Them All Up…

Last year was full of “dress code violations” that made our blood boil, and even though the kids are off from school until the New Year, there’s one last instance of a teen getting shamed for what she wore to school that is driving the Internet crazy.

A 17-year-old student from Oklahoma was sent home for violating her school dress code, and her response to school officials is going viral.

High school student Rose Lynn was sent home after school administrators deemed her outfit was too inappropriate. What was her outfit? A cardigan, tank top, and leggings.

Of course, she did as she was told but returned to school wearing the leggings with an oversize white t-shirt, which read, “It doesn’t cover your crotch. You’ll distract the boys.”

Like other teens who faced similar issues this past year, Lynn took to Facebook with photos of her outfit and to air out her frustrations.

“So today I was sent home from class, after being in school for two hours, for my outfit. Because I’m developed farther than the average girl my age, I am required to go home and change. . . . because I look like a CURVY woman and may distract young boys, I have to miss class and change my outfit. So once again, Society has failed to advocate young ladies, by confining them in a box, where they are stripped from their sense of self respect and self expression, rather than teaching young men to respect the boundaries of young ladies. My response: #Feminism #YoullDistractTheBoys #SocietyIsFailing”

It has been a contentious year for dress codes and dress code violations. Lynn‘s challenge to school officials is just one of the many attempts made to combat the double standards in dress codes.

With this, young girls have been using the hashtag #IAmMoreThanADistraction, which has become a popular way for girls to unite on social media and to challenge the idea that what a girl wears has any relationship to boys’ lack of concentration in schools.
