How do you feel about this one?
We see all sorts of multiple standards, particularly when females are the object of the "rules". How many schools in the US, including 'christian' schools are there whose cheerleaders costumes comply with the dress code for school attendance or the prom. I mean, girls can't show their legs or knees or shoulders because it will distract the boys yet the same schools pimp these girls for the ball games.
I can remember moving down the hallway during a classroom change , and some guy , I didn't know , grabbed the back of my bra and snapped it . They used to do that , in hopes that it would unhook , in the early 1960s . It wasn't acceptable then , either . Stupid assholes . What did they think they would accomplish ? Certainly didn't make the girls like them .
The Patriarchy.. Women can be sexualised - but only on men's terms. Women are not allowed to be their natural selves. If school girls/women don't wear a bra for example, they might get sent home.
That's how ridiculous it is. Women should be allowed to go topless in the US. People would eventually get used to it and the human body will be seen as the human body again.
It is a huge pimping of girls. Not to mention that girls are put into supporting roles and told boys sports are more important than theirs. Plus cheerleading is a huge popularity contest. I never told my girls they couldn't go out for cheerleader. They told me they didn't want to. Two were in the marching band and none of them had much good to say about the cheerleaders or their relative intelligence.
