I suddenly saw how sad and artificial my life had been during this period, for the loves, friends, habits and pleasures of these years were discarded like badly fitting clothes. I parted from them without pain and all that remained was to wonder that I could have endured them so long.
On Thursday, our school principal made an announcement about the dress code, and every rule and suggestion was directed at the girls. There was one half-assed comment where he tacked on the word boys at the end but I highly doubt any of the guys at my school will wear strapless shirts so there wasn’t a point. On Friday morning, everybody came to school and these posters were stuck on the walls and windows throughout the entire campus. The best part of it all is that the student body’s response to this protest has been totally positive. Go whoever this is. You rock, and I want to help with your next endeavor.
