How ridiculous is this?
Odyssey reports that during a welcome assembly at Clements High School in Texas, assistant principal Phil Morgante told all the girls that they are the reason boys are getting bad grades.
Specifically, their tight clothes.
One of the students scored a recording of the assembly, which she has uploaded to Soundcloud.
“Ladies, I know you’ve been working on your abs since the Olympics, right? But your shirts can’t be up here. It’s gotta cover the whole gut. So cover up.”
Then he added, “Ladies, I still blame you all for boys’ low grades because of tight clothing. If you have tight clothing on, we’re going to ask you to change,” Morgan said in the clip.
We understand dress codes need to be in place but to publicly blame young teenage girls and their fashion choices for the other sexes bad grades? Disgusting.
One student Piper Cotton told ABC 13, “It’s just kind of gross, because he teaches teenage girls. Like they can blame us for them being distracted during school hours. He insisted rape culture [is] on us.”
Another junior said, “He made it seem like girls are just in school as a distraction for boys, when in reality, our education is just as important as theirs.”
What do you think? If you were a parent of these girls, what would you do?
