My sister gotten herself into quite some trouble for not wearing a bra. Basically her school send her home a few weeks back. Apparently the dean called her into his office saying she wasn't dressing appropriately because he could see her nipples through the sweater. To which she said "you're welcome!", which got her suspended
And she got her note to our parents saying that she has to wear a bra to school because everything else would distract the boys.
Actually though she was wearing a bralette. Since it's kinda delicate fabric though, her nipples were still visible through it
So what are they actually saying? That girls should be requited to wear a wired, padded bra? I think that's a little ridiculous. Do you agree with them?
She's 13. Does she really have to hide her body like that?

I have three major problems with this:
1. That many Americans (including this stupid dean) think nipples are somehow inappropriate. They're not. They're just as inappropriate as feet or noses or shoulders or knees. Just because he gets his panties twisted when he sees a pair of nipples doesn't mean they're inappropriate. Nipples are natural.
2. Nobody should force women to dress in a specific way. If she wants to wear a bra, she should be able to wear one. If she doesn't want to wear a bra, she should be able to leave it at home.
3. American high schools can be extremely hypocritical when it comes to these kind of things. On the one hand, high schools in America constantly baby their students. Contrary to here in Europe, college in the US is the very first time in many young Americans' lives where they actually feel like adults - because it's the first time they get treated as such. Before, they have to endure 12 years of school where they are being treated like stupid, incapable, irresponsible 5-year olds that you can patronize at every turn. So on the one hand, the school regards your sister as a little child. On the other hand however, the dean looks at her boobs and thinks "oh these boobs must be really distracting to the boys". So in this respect, the school views your sister and the other students as having adult sexualities (because children wouldn't care much about boobs). This makes me want to ask: so what is she now? A child or an adult? If she's a child, treat her like a child. This includes letting her wear no bra. Children don't wear bras. If she's an adult, treat her like an adult. This includes letting her choose what she wants to wear. This hypocrisy that many American schools treat their students like 5-year olds with the sexuality of 21-year olds really pisses me off. It's intellectually fucked up and deeply unfair towards the students.0
