was telling us about an article in the New Paper (I try my best not to read the trash).
Apparently schools are now dictating the kind of bras students are allowed to wear to school.
Principals argue that it is is to preserve their student's modesty. Coloured bras are distracting. White is pure and preserves a young girl's integrity.
Some give multiple warnings to students and then issue demerit points.
Some force students to remove the bras and purchase white ones for $6 at the school supply store.
Some force students to remove them and will not return the bras.
This is it, people. WTF?!
Look, if you can see through a school blouse to see the patterns and colours of a bra, then there's something with the material your manufacturer uses to to make these uniforms. NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
And teachers/principals/prefects have NO BUSINESS looking at students' bras! Can anyone say sexual harassment?!
Coloured bras are distracting. Hello, I think nipples are more distracting than coloured fabric, ok?ambriel_licia
also mentioned how some convents do not allow students to wear sports bras. They say they are concerned with the hazards to the health and development of students' breasts from wearing a sports bra all day. While that is true, they are forcing students to remove them... even for gym class & to continue exercise routines without them.
If I had been subjected to that, I would've had to jog with my arms crossed and my hands cupping my breasts, cuz it bloody hurts
to jog without a sports bra. Not to mention, developing saggy breasts!
The other reason for this: sports bras are coloured and can be seen through tee-shirts. Students can only wear them if they're white.
Look, many sports manufacturers make their bras coloured, cuz many women just wear the bras during their exercise routine. If they made them white, these women would sweat and the fabric would be see-through. Then what's the point? It'll be more nippleage again.
If I have daughters, I will tell them that if ANYONE (even the principal) tells them to remove their bras, to refuse and let them call me. I will raise Hell... I will tell them that neither my daughter nor I will remove her bra. If they want, they can try and remove my daughter's bra themselves & if they touch her, I will call the cops for molestation.
Do school administrations really have nothing else better to do than stare at students' chests and wonder if they are wearing coloured/patterned bras?
Look, to make this fair, how about schools make this rule: if boys walk around with their underwear sticking up above their pants or their underwear is patterned/coloured, they must remove them & their underwear will not returned. They can go home without any underwear.
Seriously Singapore, so much for trying to foster creativity & being more open to ideas. Our schools are slipping back into the 16th century here and some parents are actually supporting this nonsense.
What a load of bullshit.
