Except it completely does. There are different standards for swimwear than there are for regular clothes. I’m not going to get to a big debate on whether or not her picture is truly inappropriate, but the school is allowed to set their clothing standards. It’s like complaining that an underwear model gets to wear fewer clothes than a lawyer wears in the courtroom.
Plus she’s obviously trying to make this a “different standards for boys than for girls” thing but that’s not what’s going on at all. I’m sure the women’s swim team has the equivalent of bra straps showing because that’s how the suits are made. The complaint is asinine.
I think the point she’s making is that the clothing standards set by the school are BS, but the comparison to the swim team IS kind of silly. Im in her camp, but it coulda been done better.
If that’s her point she’s making it in the stupidest way possible. And the fact that she specifically calls out the boys team makes me think she’s definitely trying to make this a gender thing.
The swim team is wearing swim trunks because that’s what swimmers wear. It’s not like the boys are coming to class shirtless. Female volleyball players wear spandex panties. It has nothing to do with modesty being unfairly imposed on women and not men. Men aren’t supposed to come to school with their pants around their ankles. Women aren’t supposed to come with their bras hanging out. Is to set a professional dress standard and has nothing to do with the intrinsic value of those clothes or the people wearing them. Certain clothes are appropriate for certain things. The school gets to decide what’s appropriate.
