School dress codes are highly-controversial and can cause a lot of problems for students, usually female students. But beyond being a major annoyance, they perpetuate sinister, and damaging, ideas about female sexuality.
The TikToker, named Chan, started her video as a response to a video asking: "whats something thats actually incredibly misogynistic but everyone ignores (& pretends like its normal)?"
"DRESS CODE," she says. "Dress code. Let me explain."
Dress code is one of the earliest symptoms of rape culture in America. What is rape culture? It is victim blaming and blaming a woman for an assault that happens to her or other victims (It doesn't just happen to women).
Dress code at its core is grown adults sexualizing little girls (7-17 years old) and blaming them for distracting male classmates.
