Sex is a powerful force. Recognizing that simple idea, historically, societies have been structured to keep the sexual impulses down.
Monogamy is an example. In the West, young men have historically had a shot at marriage, children, and family because of it. That structuring of society around the family has kept the beast under some control.
In societies where men are allowed multiple wives, some young men have no chance at marriage, and so turn to crime and/or war to work out their frustrations.
Another effort to keep sexual aggressiveness under control comes from the Bible admonition to women to dress modestly, in a nonsexual manner. My God, in Muslim countries women wear clothing that conceals all. Although we reject the burka in the West, it serves its function in the Middle East.
Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the power of sexuality ought to support school dress codes for young females and likewise dress codes for males. The female projection of sex and the male projection of thuggery MUST be discouraged. If they are not, there will be serious consequences.
The mother of an 11-year-old girl pulled out of class for wearing leggings said she was told this was because ’13-year-old boys can’t control themselves around this type of dress’.
Kimberly Jones said her daughter Bella wore patterned leggings and a jumper dress to Lansing Middle School in Kansas on August 24, and was sent to the school office for a ‘dress code violation’.
The school’s community relations coordinator measured the dress and deemed it too short, and Bella was made to wear a borrowed pair of tracksuit bottoms.
Kimberley said that the school’s policy only stated that ‘clothing that is revealing or is suggestive may not be worn’ and that she was told ‘the reason behind this is that 13-year-old boys can’t control themselves around this type of dress’.
‘Two different staff members told me that!’ she wrote on Facebook.
On Thursday, the school posted a new dress code policy, in which leggings specifically were banned.
Ms Jones has said, however, that she feels her daughter was isolated and shamed by Lansing Middle School staff.
‘If I could come up and bring her a change of clothes, why in the world would you want to humiliate her all day like that?’ she said,
‘We’re a military family and we just moved here.
‘One of the big heartbreakers for me was that literally all day and the day before she was so excited about school. And then to hear your daughter say, “Can I please move?” It was hard.
Leggings can expose the shape of female body parts. And although it will outrage feminists for me to say this, that exposure of the outlines of lady body bits can create sexual aggression in males toward the girl wearing this type of clothing.
Furthermore, there is a racial angle that the politically correct press will not touch. Blacks (and to a lesser degree Hispanics) have a higher testosterone level than whites and Asians. Girls might be safe around white and Asian boys, but around blacks and Latinos …
Let’s just say that rape and/or other sex crimes MUST be discouraged.
Where Bella’s mom has a case is in the way the school handled the girl’s mode of dress. Youngsters are sensitive. It’s really not the best idea to embarrass them in front of their classmates.
