SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing low-cut shirts & mini-skirts change the garments during a school celebration, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials’ concerns of sexual violence outweighed students’ freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the women’s clothing would enflame the passions of male students during the celebration. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between women and men.
How many of you are now outraged? How dare these women get told they have to change so they don’t enflame the passions of men, right?
Treat anyone who attacks the student as the victim, vs a perpetuator of hate-crimes
Hell, all over Tumblr people always post about how girls can wear whatever they want and if someone DARES tell them “you dressed like that so you asked for being attacked” people go nuts and scream at whomever would say that.
But change it to a male or female student wearing a flag, and … yeah no outrage over being attacked. Blame the victim, make sure they know they’re not allowed to dress like that because it “draws attention”. O.o
Always sad how some hate-crimes are accepted while everyone’s so quick to denounce every other hate-crime.
Condemning one hate-crime but condoning another is hypocrisy.
