Just a friendly reminder. (via Imgur)

Recently, there have been all too many stories of school dress code shaming for us to cover. From a lesbian teen banned from wearing a tux to the prom to a girl sent home because her hair was too red, these stories just get sadder and more familiar the more you read. Just today we wrote about a 5-year-old who was kicked out of school for showing her shoulders, which is sick.

So it's refreshing to see a teenage girl striking back, and reminding us all that sometimes women wear clothes for reasons beyond tempting and provoking men. It seems like common sense, but many school administrators obviously need it pointed out to them over and over again.

When I was a chubby high school boy, I wore my breezy, baggy cargo shorts to school every day in the spring and summer. I took for granted the refreshing breeze blowing up into my business, and would often stand on the windiest part of campus like a modern-day Marilyn Monroe, reveling in the sensation. And the best part is, nobody ever accused me of sexualizing my body. Quite the opposite.
