Figure Modeling

Why won’t anyone criticize the stretch pants trend? The students are coming to school NUDE. Someone asserted that if a student came to school nude with a painted-on outfit, probably no one would say anything.

I don’t think the dress code actually says students must wear clothing to school. Maybe the dress code is written so that the description of stretch pants is within the acceptable parameters. Maybe people are afraid to say anything because they don’t want to be accused of being perverts. Maybe no one wants to inhibit anyone’s self-expression. Maybe people fear the consequences of the women’s rights movement. But someone needs to say something because kids should not be sexualized. School is for learning and the dress code should encourage this. Also, these pants are nasty. Maybe they’re a health hazard or something.

The issue isn’t that the larger students are wearing them. It doesn’t matter to me if the student is in good physical shape or not. I don’t think people should wear stretch pants if their shirt does not cover the derriere. It’s not appropriate for a school setting. As someone once said, “Fabric wasn’t meant to stretch that far.”
