I agree with dress codes. Teaching modesty isn't a bad thing. It's not as though boys can walk around topless. Hell, in my high school, the dress codes weren't even gender-specific. Technically, a boy could wear a dress to school, so long as it reached his fingertips in length, had straps at least 2 finger-widths wide, and showed no chest.

I'm more upset by the fact that so many people seem to be missing the point.  They are making the dress issue the girl's fault.  In many cases, it's not really.  It's the fault of antiquated ideals by an older generation.  I should have added the link, because the picture was totally harmless and not showing anything wrong at all.  There was NO reason for her to have to cover up.  She was modestly dressed, but she had a larger bosom, so of course, someone thought she needed a turtleneck to cover it.  *eyeroll*  She didn't even have cleavage!

It was a cute outfit and didn't even show cleavage.  This was pretty ridiculous.  Sometimes, I look at one of these and I can see why they are upset, but this one was truly ridiculous.

Middle schoolers should not be dressed in the same clothes that adults wear to the club.

There is nothing wrong with a dress code for school or for employment. People need to get over themselves.

Check out the shirt.  CM wouldn't post it.  It looks nothing like a clubbing shirt for attention.  There's NO cleavage at all.  Too much of WHAT chest?

I'm just saying for my nonexistent daughter. Lol to have a large chest, with a shirt off the shoulder, I'm assuming bra straps would be showing. I didn't get an in depth look at the picture, it was side by side with the one in the op, I just remember thinking, 'glad I don't have a dd, I wouldn't let her wear that... and how awesome it is that the older sister stuck up for her little sister, seems like that's becoming a rare thing'.
