Ah, sexism, you strike again.
Thirteen-year-old Grace was really excited to wear a pink, off-the-shoulder top she bought with her own money to school – who’d blame her? It’s a super cute shirt.
my 13 year old sister was dress coded for her shirt today for “revealing too much chest and shoulder” so i made her a shirt to change into pic.twitter.com/NdRQws91HB

While at school she realised she was going to get ‘dress-coded’ after getting funny looks and comments from her teachers about exposing her chest and shoulders. She ended up changing her clothes.
For a glimpse of a shoulder. SCANDALOUS.
Her older sister Isabella was having none of it. She made a t-shirt for her sister to keep in her locker and change in to if she’s ever forced to change again. On it she wrote:
– promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies
– blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions
– perpetuates rape culture
– is B.S.“
Isabella is a total legend – she’s even going to be printing t-shirts for people to buy.
