If you were to ask me, I’d tell you that young girls wear their skirts way too short these days. But I have no idea why anyone would ask me. I’m old and married, I tend to have conservative thoughts on fashion, and I’m generally pretty pompous when expressing my opinions.
Still, you’re here now, so I might as well opine about the parochial school in Connecticut that’s changing their uniforms next year from the classic plaid skirts and jumpers to khakis and polos. My thoughts? It’s kind of high-larious that a Catholic school is just catching on to how slutty some girls make their uniform look. I mean, a uniform-clad Catholic school girl as a temptress is nothing new, right?
However, according to Jezebel (via the New Haven Register), the administration at St. Bernadette Catholic School in New Haven just realized that older girls were rolling their skirts up at the waistband to make them shorter. To combat the extra flesh, the girls will have to wear flesh-colored pants starting next fall. And not even a surgically enhanced stripper in a whorehouse could make those suckers look sexy.
Surprisingly, some parents at the school are upset by the change. Something about tradition, femininity and looking like every other kid. Another argument against the change, which is actually understandable, is that it’s just plain expensive to switch uniforms. The parents also think the school could have just outlawed girls rolling up their skirts in the same way that nail polish and flashy jewelry have been banned.
Clearly those parents haven’t seen Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” video. Or maybe they have and they’re secretly hoping their daughters will also shave their heads, require a conservator to manage their lives, and get married twice before they’re old enough to legally rent a car.
Come on — you think it’s kind of funny, too, that this school has just discovered what everyone else has known forever, right?
