All over the United States schools have been struggling with leggings. Are they school appropriate? Should be they be acceptable for just pants? Are they too distracting to young boys? Is it the boy’s problem for being distracted? How should leggings be wore? In this Blog we are putting our opinions into two different points of views, are leggings school appropriate and how leggings are not school appropriate. What do you think?
For: Girls should be allowed to wear leggings in school. The reason for this is that the schools cannot give a strong reason as to why they can't. They claim that it is distracting to boys. Another thing comes into play that no matter what these young women are wearing boys will always be distracted by girls. Even if it caused more distraction the girls should not have to suffer for the boys treating them like sex objects. Leggings are not that revealing and do indeed count as pants. They are designed for comfort. They do their job. They cover up all parts of the lower body, which are called pants. Girls should not be held responsible for boy's inability to act mature and treat women as people. Not sexual objects.
Against: Leggings show off the body. Many girls have them so tight you can quite easily see their underwear and the exact shape of their behind and everything else that some other people don’t want to see. It’s repulsive and obnoxious. Nobody wants to see this in school especially when they are supposed to be learning. They are a distraction to boys. Whether they wear them to show off their bodies or not, it is the end result. Leggings are supposed to be worn with long shirts and dresses, not used as pants. It’s seriously distracting to male teenagers who are going through puberty and their hormones are active. Many women complain about women being treated as objects. What is the point of complaining about this if many girls act like they want to be treated like objects? They know what they are doing right when they put those leggings on. Not at all cute. Girls should wear clothes that they are job appropriate. Respect is what are girls now of days are lacking. Appreciate your body, but don’t take it too far. Do you think leggings appropriate?
