(thetelegraph) – Chris Whitehead wore a girls’ knee-length skirt to classes at Impington Village College, near Cambridge, Cambs. He is protesting against a school uniform policy which bans boys from wearing shorts during the summer months. He also addressed 1,368 pupils at morning assembly wearing the black skirt, which boys are permitted to wear due to a loophole in the policy. Chris believes that forcing boys to wear long trousers during the sizzling summer months affects concentration and their ability to learn. He said: ”In the summer girl students are allowed to wear skirts but boys are not allowed to wear shorts. ”We think that this discriminates against boys. I will march in a skirt with other boys waving banners and making a lot of noise. ”I will be wearing the skirt at school all day in protest at the uniform policy and addressing the assembly with the student council, wearing a skirt.” Teachers at Impington Village College imposed a ban on boys’ shorts two years ago following consultation with parents and teachers. ‘‘Ultimately the boys can wear a skirt to school because it doesn’t say they can’t in the uniform policy and we would be discriminating against them if we did not allow it.”
Boys are permitted to wear a skirt due to a loophole in the policy? Um, then close the loophole dude. “Hey you little fruitcake, you can’t wear a fucking skirt.” Loophole closed! This isn’t the US government, there are no checks and balances. You’re the principle, if you don’t want your hallways to look like the Rocky Horror Picture Show then tell the fucking kid to put pants on. All it takes is one crack in the dam and the thing could fucking break. Next thing you now school will be littered with a bunch of dudes wearing skirts, playing with Polly Pocket’s, and belting out showtunes. Then what will become of your little British futbol team? Oh, yea that’s true. I guess it would be business as usual.
But maybe they’re ignoring it because this kid, while he is an advocate for “good,” is the best possible way to prevent kids wearing skirts around? Nothing like watching little Chris Whitehead getting shoved into lockers and punched in the face by the bullies on a daily basis to put the fear of God into you. I’d watch this little herb get his back pack nuggeted then stuffed in a trash barrel head first and would swear-off ever even thinking about wearing a skirt.
