You know there’s something wrong with society if the school board has to ban G-strings and thongs at graduation:
Even covered by a gown, hot pants and G-strings are not appropriate attire for a graduation ceremony, school board members in one south suburban district say. The Rich Township High School Board is considering instituting a strict dress code next year after board members said they were aghast at the attire worn by some of this year’s grads.
“When you come to graduation with hot pants, no stockings, 6-inch heels, G-strings and all other types of attire under a gown, that’s just inappropriate and highly disrespectful,” board member Brunetta Hill-Corley — whose daughter recently graduated from Rich Central in Olympia Fields — said at a board meeting last week.
“Morals do start at home, but in the event they’re not at home, the school district needs to uphold them.” Agreed board member Sonya Norwood: “We have parents who allow their children to wear anything — or half of anything — to school as well as to graduation. . . . Let’s look at the possibility of raising the bar at all ceremonies that you be properly dressed or turned away at the door.”
Hill-Corley said the code should apply to more than just students.
“As I watched the teachers or instructors that presided over the ceremony, there are certain undergarments I think they should have had on,” she said. “You’re saying you have a standard that you want the students to uphold, so we have to be the example.’’
Ummm, who gives a FAWK what kind of drawls people wear…as long as what’s over the undergarments is fine what’s the big friggin deal??
