Girls just want to wear pants : Comments

By Evelyn Tsitas, published 16/11/2016

A school uniform shouldn't inflict misery on one gender, which is exactly what archaic girls' uniforms do.

Simple answer is a student Pand C. Enter Democracy.
Students should be encouraged to raise complaints about their environment.
There is a good reason to maintain all-girls schooling, to alleviate pressure on girls during their developmental stages.

oh the deprivations of the the private school system, how ever did you bare it.
The cravat the boys had to wear during the cross country run was an awful colour.

Dan must be an ex public servant who still clings to the stupid abbreviations that slow communications. Cobber is being smart lol!
At least she could not blame men as women are the majority in education. So Evelyn you are a big girl now, deep breaths and actually do something! Go to your old school and explain your issues and argue the case with the other big girls. Then you can all agree it is really the fault of men lol.

"It starts at primary school, with the uniforms spelling out the inequity boys get to wear practical shorts and tops that are easy to move in, girls get dresses that curb their physical activity."

Confucius say "Girl with dress up run faster than boy with pants down."

Why the false dichotomy? Gender neutral uniforms are to the only alternative to badly designed girls' uniforms.

And does any school still have such ridiculously strict standards for uniforms (whether badly designed or not)?

It really is an indictment of our society that people like Evelyn have so little of interest or importance in their lives that they have to invent such meaningless problems, to make their lives interesting & give themselves some importance in the scheme of things. It is an indictment of academia that people are paid good taxpayer money while producing such garbage.

If a sedentary life at a university is not exciting enough, or offer enough stimulus for her, I suggest she join the British army as an infantry soldier. This should relieve her boredom, & if deployed overseas, something real to worry about.

Bits of bumph like this certainly confirms the stupidity of the publish or perish problem that has engulfed academia in recent decades.
