Someone on the faculty at this high school should have known this dress code policy would end up on Facebook.

Offensive dress code letter of the day. Because tomorrow there'll be a new one.

It looks like we've got another one to file under archaic/sexist/shaming dress codes. The letter pictured above was handed out to students at Biglerville High School in Pennsylvania, and describes the dress code policy for the graduation ceremony. Brianna Burtop posted the letter on Facebook with the caption, "I didn't know it was okay to insult your female students. Weight shouldn't be used for comedic relief."

The young men at Biglerville are told to "make your choices wisely" and "PULL YOUR PANTS UP." The instructions for women have a different tone. They're told the following:

"No bellies showing, keep 'the girls' covered and supported, and make sure that nothing is so small that all your bits and pieces are hanging out. Please remember as you select an outfit for the ceremony that we don't want to be looking at "sausage rolls" ... As you get dressed remember that you can't put 10 pounds of mud in a five-pound sack."

All men need is a push in the right direction to dress themselves, but women need to be body-shamed, slut-shamed and reminded of how simple math works. Nothing makes someone feel like a piece of meat more than having your body referred to as a type of meat. I mean, forget graduating high school, all these girls want to do is distract everyone with their sexy unsupported lady bits and show the world their underwear!
