Student sees no reason to be called out for not wearing a bra.

She chose not to wear a bra to school because she got sunburned shoulders. If having sunburned shoulders would have kept me from wearing bra to school, I would have prevented that sunburn or bought a strapless bra. When I was in school, it was unheard of not to wear a bra in high school. I would have been so ashamed not to wear one. Schools requiring girls to wear a bra do so because it is improper to not wear one. Now, we have another student who is offended and wants to make a fuss like David Hogg who went against Laura Ingraham. Since when did teenagers because the boss?

Description of what is proper or improper attire should always be in the student's hand book and guidelines that the students, parents and guardians sign upon admission. So no acting like a spoiled brat.

I agree. Some students love to go against the rules to stand out.

@MsBooklover in a way going against rules is part of teenage life, I was once a teen and I won't say that I'm immaculately innocent when it comes to following rules but that is where accountsbility for actions done comes in.

@louievill That is true....but if something happens to a girl as a result of not making intelligent decisions, she should consider herself to be partly at fault.

In my opinion, it should be the choice of the teenager to wear a bra or not. However, if she is wearing a white or tight shirt purposely then that should not be allowed. But if she is wearing a dark colored shirt, top or not noticeable then I think it should be fine. I don't recall anything about having to wear a bra.

I think it depends on how obvious it is. Some girls do it for attention. They like to tease.

@MsBooklover ... yes exactly. I think if she was trying to get attention, or wearing a tight shirt and it can be a distraction to the class, then perhaps she should opt for a different color.

If it's part of the school dress code, it should be in the handbook. I'm sure there are many girls who don't see a need to wear one and can get away with not wearing one. In that case, it should be the girl who decides her wardrobe, not the school.

I am thinking it would be in the school dress code. I saw a picture of her in the shirt they spoke of, and her nipples were very pronounced. If they did not put it in the school dress code, they might want to start thinking about it.

@MsBooklover That kind of shirt should not be worn in school. I'm sure they are already revising the dress code.

@just4him I hope so. Some students love to cause ruckus and get as much attention as they can.

@MsBooklover Attention seeking people are usually insecure.

Many older folks are saying that parents today do not teach their children right from wrong when they are young makes them have a bad attitude like David Hogg and his cousin Emma Gonzalez.

@MsBooklover My late parents put their foot down if any of us got out of line by making stupid demands.

I can't wear a bra when my fibromyalgia is bothering me. I don't want guests around those days either. I wore a bra all my life. I would have been shame and just last month I could not put one one. I was burning up in my coat. But i refused to open it. I still think it's ok in school with something over your front.

You have a good reason. Fibromyalgia is painful. It is OK for a girl to go without a bra as long as it is not obvious and done for attention.

We have no school rules about wearing the bra. I think most students will wear for comfort.

Maybe the reason they don't have it in the school dress code is because as long as I can remember, girls just wore bras...no questions asked.
