Two girls at Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida, showed up to a football game with painted bodies.
Now a controversy swirled because they were booted from the game, while boys with painted bodies were allowed to stay!
"People think we did it to be rebellious senior teenagers but we did it because we wanted to show school spirit," student Monica CummingS said. "That's all we did it for."
School district policy states that it is up to administrators to decide whether something is appropriate or not and in this case, the principal decided that the girls' outfits were not appropriate.
Once the girls came in, there were a number of people who came up to the principal, the assistant principal and other school administrators who were very upset over their appearance, school spokeswoman Margi Nanney said. "We have never had complaints about the men or the boys."
Was it sexism or just an appropriate response to indecency? Should they have been allowed to stay? What do you think? Link
