Virginian School Sector Wants To Ban Cross-Gender Dress

Written by 


In Virginia, a school sector plans to prohibit any kind of cross-gender dressing in order to eliminate harassing, which is completely ridiculous.

What could seem a good initiative, to want anti-gay bullying cease, is actually completely ridiculous in the case of the school sector of Suffolk in Virginia.

Indeed, the proposed dress code would prohibit students from wearing clothing "not in keeping with a student's gender" and that "causes a disruption and/or distracts others from the education process or poses a health or safety concern," as the board members told Reuters.

Cael had spoken about what had happened to Larry King who was killed because he got dressed as a girl.

James Parrish, executive director of equality Virginia, says, and you will understand why this is a ridiculous decision: "If a girl comes to school wearing jeans and a flannel shirt, is that considered cross-gender dressing?"

"They're calling it cross-dressing, but if that individual was wearing clothes that reflect their gender identity, that's not cross-dressing, that's appropriate gender dressing," he said.

Instead of truly trying to find a real solution, the board members of this school sector do nothing but increase it and would make students uncomfortable.
