“A father bought an adorable dress for his adorable little 5-year-old girl, but her school forced her to wear a t-shirt and a pair of jeans because her shoulders were showing and Texas school officials couldn’t handle it. Last week, Jeff Rouner sent his daughter to school in a rainbow spaghetti strap dress that she had been asking to wear. The weather had warmed up and he approved of the dress, so he gave her permission to do so.
“But, while at her Houston-area public school, school officials were bothered by her bare shoulders, so they forced her to cover them up. Then they made her wear a pair of jeans because the little bit of ankle showing bothered them as well. At the end of the day, the little girl went home dejected, which caused Rouner to slam the school’s dress code in the Houston Press.
“He wrote: “I’m not surprised to see the dress code shaming come into my house. I have, after all, been sadly waiting for it since the ultrasound tech said, ‘It’s a girl.’ I didn’t think, though, that it would make an appearance when she was five years old.”
“He then also slammed the dress code for applying mainly to girls rather than to boys, as well: “Have you ever stopped to think how weird a school dress code really is? I went and checked out the one for my daughter’s school district and it’s amazing in how hard it tries not to say what it actually means. There are literally no male-specific guidelines anywhere on that list. I mean, prohibitions against exposing the chest or torso could, hypothetically, apply to boys, except that they don’t. Not really. They don’t sell boys’ clothes that do that. There’s nothing that is marketed to boys that is in anyway comparable to a skirt or a sun dress. Essentially, a school dress code exists to prevent girls from displaying too much of their bodies.”
Asked to comment on the incident, the spokesperson for the school stated that the guidelines “are there for a reason and they have done their job so far superbly.” Speaking to Newslo, the spokesperson also mentioned that “it was impossible to instill true values of Christianity into the youngest children at the school, not while that little Miss Flirty was distracting everyone.”
“It was just not possible for the other children to focus their attention to Jesus with her parading around and displaying her shoulders,” the spokesperson conveyed the complaints of several teachers. “It wasn’t enough that all the boys were looking at her, but the girls were also very interested in her outfit, as it generally is with women. It was chaos and mayhem everywhere. Sodom and Gomorrah were a picnic compared to the catastrophe that little girl’s father caused. He should be ashamed of himself.”
