Satirical Opinion by Carina Leaman
Bared shoulders. Exposed legs. Dangerously low cut shirts.
It’s a wonder any work gets done in schools these days. Students’ wardrobes are too distracting for any real learning to take place during class.
For example, how are girls supposed to focus when the boy sitting next to them in math class is openly flaunting his muscles for all to see? Tightly fitted shirts leave next to nothing to the imagination; it’s not the math equation students will be staring at, that’s for sure.
Bare legs are worse. Beautifully sculpted calves and chiseled knees are magnets for inappropriately timed gazes; leg hair makes girls swoon. If a boy absolutely has to wear shorts, they should cover the knee for any semblance of modesty.
Low cut shirts are out as well. The little bit of chest hair peeking out from a guy’s shirt is enough to send anyone into fantasy land while their history teacher drones on, completely oblivious. Shirt necklines should be no lower than two finger widths below the collarbone to prevent complete anarchy.
But most of all, male students need to stop wearing flip flops. Their chiseled ankles and toned feet is too much for any girl to endure; they can’t be expected to tear their gaze from such beautiful anatomy as a boy’s ankle. It’s too much.
It’s the school’s responsibility to protect the student population from such blatant distractions to their schoolwork. Boys need to learn to respect themselves, and dress professionally.
If a guy chooses to wear a tightly fitted shirt with shorts and flip flops, they become a distraction and need to change; they’re just asking to be stared at.
After all, girls will be girls.
