I saw this post among the slew of comments on this Planned Parenthood post regarding the decision on the after 20-week abortions ban in Arizona.
It was nice to see a conservative man standing up to the anti-choice bullies on the page.
This is what happens when a conservative meets this little thing I like to call “reality.”
this speaks to society on so many levels.
well done pixar
ok, but can I just
I can completely see Megamind despite being disguised as Metro Man right there. The smile is identical, his eyes have the kindness and care that Megamind’s has. There is nothing about that last gif that I can’t see as Megamind. And yet. I’m looking at ‘Metro Man’.

Today I was stopped in the hallway on my way to class by one of the security guards. She wouldn’t let me go to class and forced me to walk across the school to the main office to have my mom, who by the way was on her way to work, bring me “real pants” because the way I dressed was “sexually provocative.” Because of this I was ten minutes late to class, and after five minutes of actually being in class I was taken back out to be talked to again by the security guard and given my “real pants.”
These shorts are mid-thigh, and I am wearing opaque black tights. Other than my hands and my face, I had no skin showing whatsoever. So tell me, how is this being “sexually provocative?” (reminder: this is a typical american public high school, not a private or religious-oriented school)
The security guard ridiculed me, saying that what I was wearing was inappropriate. I told her that everyday, other girls walk around in skin-tight yoga pants, some even with their thongs clearly showing, and shirts that are see-through. “This is not bad clothing.” I had told her. This security guard plays favorites with the girls on who she does call out and doesn’t call out. On game days, the cheerleaders decide to wear their skirts that barely cover their butts and she doesn’t cal them out at all. She also openly said to my mom “I don’t look at what the boys are wearing, only the girls.”
When my mom came in to bring me the pants, she had a long talk with the security guard. She told my mom that I should know that there is a dress code, and that I should follow it. My mom told her “Maybe there shouldn’t be a dress code if it isn’t monitored consistently. This is double-standards.”
My mom also told her “The only distraction from class that is going on is you are pulling my daughter out of class and keeping her from learning.”
I had to walk up to this security guard to get my long pants, since she was talking to my mom, and my mom said to me sarcastically: “It appears that you are being sexually provocative, darling.”
“Oh yes mama, all the boys are just popping boners everywhere!” I pretended to swoon. We both left, my mom calling back to the security guard: “I didn’t need this today, you know. I need to get to work and I haven’t even showered yet. Good Job.”
The whole ordeal was ridiculous. Girls shouldn’t be ridiculed for wearing shorts. Even so, I was wearing thick tights that you couldn’t see through–much better than just wearing yoga pants. There is no way that what I was wearing could even be considered “sexually provocative.” Plus, anything the boys wear is completely fine in the eyes of the security guard, it’s only what the girls are wearing that are “inappropriate.” Even yoga pants where you can see the thong through it don’t “disrupt class” because nobody cares enough about what a student wears and does not wear, only the security guards.
tl;dr, dress codes are counterproductive and the enforcers cause more disruption for a student’s learning than shorts do.

Reminds me of the time this girl in my class who was wearing shorts that went almost to her knees asked to use the restroom, took forever, and came back wearing different pants. She said she got stopped in the hall because her shorts were inappropriate so she changed into her sweatpants for PE. Even our teacher was like “What?” I guess her knees were just really provocative.
teachers in my school dont even tell people in private when they have a problem. they will yell across the hall to you about this kinda stuff . it pisses me off.
One reason I’m happy to have a uniform, but… That’s not fair? Like I go to a private catholic school and on the days that we are allowed to wear what we want, nobody is made to change when they wear something “provocative” no, they’re simply told “next time would please try to follow dress code” and that’s it. I find it pretty weird that my school is… Less strict than the public school on dress code actually…
There were a few times my high school administrators stopped me and wanted to check my shirt or skirt length because they “weren’t sure about it.” This was almost always at lunchtime by the same people so I’m fairly certain this was their only duty during the school’s lunch shifts.
My favorite time had to be when I was wearing an above-knee skirt that had happened to blow up due to a gust of wind. This woman comes from behind me and tells me my skirt is too short and I have to wait in her office. I do so, and there’s a receptionist who asks why I’m there. When I tell her she gives me this look and says “you look fine what’s the big deal” and said if she had the power to she would have let me go.
I waited for one whole lunch and two class periods before the woman who pulled me aside finally comes to the office and tells me I need someone to bring me suitable clothing or I go to in school suspension. Since there was only one period left I just went to ISS and did some homework. But oh, that day I’ll never forget.
