Oklahoma Teen Fights Back Against Dress Code Violation

What 1 Student Did to Fight Her School's Dress Code

This year was full of "dress code violations" that made our blood boil, and even though the kids are off from school until the New Year, there's one last instance of a teen getting shamed for what she wore to school that is driving the Internet crazy.

Rose Lynn, a 17-year-old student from Oklahoma, went to school wearing a pair of black leggings with a tank top and a long sweater and was sent home and asked to change because her outfit was deemed inappropriate. She did as she was told but returned to school wearing the leggings with an oversize white t-shirt, which read, "It doesn't cover your crotch. You'll distract the boys."

Like other teens who faced similar issues this past year, Lynn took to Facebook with photos of her outfit and to air out her frustrations.

Because I'm developed farther than the average girl my age, I am required to go home and change. . . . because I look like a CURVY woman and may distract young boys, I have to miss class and change my outfit. So once again, Society has failed to advocate young ladies, by confining them in a box, where they are stripped from their sense of self respect and self expression, rather than teaching young men to respect the boundaries of young ladies.
