PA High School Sends Home Body-Shaming Dress Code Letter

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/05/29/1388768/-PA-High-School-Sends-Home-Body-Shaming-Dress-Code-Letter


Biglerville High School in Adams County, PA sent home a letter just prior to graduation with the following dress code "requirements" for ladies:

Choose modest attire. No bellies showing, keep "the girls" covered and supported, and make sure that nothing is so small that all your bits and pieces are hanging out. Please remember that as you select an outfit for the awards assembly that we don't want to be looking at "sausage rolls" as Mrs. Elliott calls them. As you get dressed remember that you can't put 10 pounds of mud in a five-pound sack


Really? "The girls"? Couldn't even use the proper term, and say "breasts"? Is that scandalous?

And where was the "Boys should wear pants that fit properly, and don't look painted on. We don't need to know if your parents had you circumsized as a baby, or if you give Ron Jeremy a run for his money"? The most they said was to wear proper fitting pants, and pull them up because your underwear choice is personal.

And are "sausage rolls" ok for the guys? I certainly didn't see them saying that they didn't want to see them on the boys.
