I am rolling my eyes today at a school in Scotland. Apparently, they’ve cautioned their students to wear baggy clothing as to be less appealing to pedophiles:
Paedophilia warning over King’s Park pupil dress sense
Good job, King’s Park Secondary School – way to objectify your students. Because obviously, it’s their fault their clothing is well-fitting or skirts or short. Obviously, if they get assaulted by pedophiles, it’s their fault. Y’know… not the fault of the culture that has told them from the day they were born that they exist only to be ogled and classed as a sexual object. :p I bet you also think that a woman who wears a short skirt or passes out drunk at a party deserves to be raped, eh?
Honestly, I’m just relieved to see a big societal backlash against the continued sexualization of children. Now, if only I’d quit seeing the word fashion in the children’s section… kids don’t need to be worrying about being fashionable…
Hello train of thought, where did you get to? *sigh* There’s so much I’d like to say, but I can’t seem to think a straight line today. I guess I don’t mind, at least, I’m not going to beat myself up over it. And every time I almost get my thoughts lined up again, someone (multiple someones) insists on making noise too close to me, shattering my focus. Sigh… why am I not on Ritalin, again?
*breaks down and opts for the other ear pain – earbuds!*
Yeah, no… definitely not getting it together enough today to write more than this… maybe tomorrow!
