In every school with a dress code, there is some controversy over it. At BSM, many popular varieties of female expression are outlawed, such as leggings, dresses that reveal shoulders, and skirts that end above the knee, but there are not many restrictions on what males can wear. In my years at this excellent school, after nearly every mass day I hear at least twenty members of our school’s female population comment on the injustice they are experiencing through the dress code. Girls at BSM clearly think they have it rough because of the dress code, but they have no idea the trials our great school’s dress code puts boys through.

One cannot make the assumption that we boys love wearing long shorts. If the sky is out, who is the BSM administration to prevent our thighs from being out as well? Also, why can’t boys expose their shoulders? We slave away in the weight room, building and toning every muscle we have, especially our delts, only to be told that we aren’t allowed to wear a sleeveless shirt. I personally take great pride in my cut-offs. I hand-tore every single one of them, and I want nothing more than to parade them around in the glorious fashion they deserve.

Additionally, think of this situation from a teenage boy’s perspective. When we wake up in the morning, there’s not much to look forward to on a school day other than getting home and taking a nice midday snooze. There truly are few things that brighten up a day at school. But walking into a class and seeing a girl’s shoulders and knees? Man, that’s a godsend.

This is especially significant considering that none of us boys will ever see a girl outside this school environment. Let’s face it: high schoolers these days don’t do much outside of school; we mostly just watch Netflix and do our homework. Maybe if mom can give us a ride to the football game, we can see some ladies there, but in general we can only ever see members of the opposite gender in our beloved Red Knight High.

I, admittedly, have never experienced BSM’s accursed dress code from a girl’s point of view, but I do know boys around the school suffer daily at the hands of this malevolent clause.
