High school dress codes are often sexist and absurd, and this teenager found a creative way to fight back. Kansas high school student Isabella Rossellini (not the the one Ross was allowed to cheat on Rachel with) was shocked when her 13-year-old sister Grace was “dress coded” at school on Monday for wearing this:
Grace told Buzzfeed News she wasn't formally punished for the shirt, but that several teachers "commented negatively" on her apparel. "I went into school and I received some looks from teachers, just not nice looks," she said. "Instantly I was like—okay, I’m going to get dress-coded and I felt the need to change."
Her sister Isabella, hero among heroes, had the perfect solution. She whipped up a new shirt for her little sister to wear real quick. Here it is:
The spectacularly badass shirt reads:
-Promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies.
-Blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/ actions.
-Perpetuates rape culture.
Isabella shared a photo of the shirt switch on Twitter, where it's going viral:
"My 13 year old sister was dress coded for her shirt today for 'revealing too much chest and shoulder' so i made her a shirt to change into," she wrote.
And people are loving it.
And this girl pointed out the sexist double standard behind so many dress codes:
Luckily, we might all be able to get our own version of this shirt soon.
I might get one because it looks comfortable. And it's important to be comfortable when smashing the patriarchy.
