Alright guys, this shit got me heated.
So today as I was getting ready for school, I get a call from my youngest sister’s elementary school clinic. My sister gets on the phone and tells me she is sitting out of class because her skirt is too short. “You need to bring me one that goes down to my knees, they said,” is what she told me.
Quick recap: My sister is eleven years old, in fifth grade, and has some mental and physical disabilities. She’s the tallest girl in her class. Also, the dress code states her skirt must be down to her fingertips, not her knees.
When I get there, I insisted I see her instead of just dropping her stuff off. I was not suprised to find her with a skirt obviously within the rules of the dress code. I asked her what class she was missing and she told me math. She’d been sitting out for atleast twenty or thirty minutes while she waited for me to come.
She only learns things at about a third of the pace as everyone else in her class. Even missing this short amount of time means missing a lot of information for her. Just to recap: she has to sit out of class because of the length of her skirt. She can’t even just sit in her classroom while she waits for me, because apparently that’s too distracting. To whom, you ask? I can’t really tell you. Are ten year old boys, fifth grade boys already old enough to be sexualizing her to the point that they were going so insane with horniness that they had to whisk her away until she could put on something ‘decent’.
So not only are the sexualizing a fifth grader, they are giving her different rules for the dress code based on her height and making her miss valuable class time. This bullshit needs to stop. Eleven goddamn years old and she’s already being taught her body isn’t her own anymore, that she’s being too provocative if she wears a skirt to the same standard as all the other short, skinny girls in her class just because she looks older.
As a P.S., I would like to point out that she is already bullied because of her disabilities. Pulling her out of class and making her change is even more of an embarrassment, and only leads to more teasing.
Signal boost, my niece went through the same thing.
this shit makes me so pissed off.
fuck every school that does this bullshit.
Im sorry if this is triggering to anyone in the snake community. i just wanted to bring this forth for you all to see. this is what happens to snakes WHEN YOU USE NON CONTROLLED HEAT DECORATIONS in tank with the snake. she had 2 in the too small tank and could not get away from either of them and thus suffered the consequences of her owners choice
please get this around so that people learn to not to buy heated decorations like rocks or hides. why would anyone want this to happen or let this happen to their babies
**DISCLAMER I just rescued this snake last night from its original owners because of this burn THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN TO ANY OF MY SCALE BABIES.**
please do not delete any of my post. this is all important
THIS IS A SIGNAL BOOST!!
this poor baby. hopefully it will be able to recover. PLEASE research your pet’s needs before actually going out and purchasing it. i know it’s not the fun part, but it’s absolutely needed. without having the proper knowledge of your pet’s requirements, something like this could very well happen.
DON’T let this happen to your pet. DO YOUR RESEARCH and don’t take shortcuts on husbandry. be a responsible pet owner.
^^^^!!!! If u have heated decor just remove them. I can see how inexpereinced owners might make this mistake however after reading this and being informed u have no excuse to still keep them in. Wht matter more, ur pets health and happiness or some stupid piece of rock or statue? The same thing can happen with improperly placed lights, of ur snake likes to climb on taller decor and gets too close to the bulb, especially during hibernation. It happened to my bio teacher. Health and proper care always comes before aestetics and ur entertainment…
why are people even questioning obesity in america
why is your tea liquidised?
….. Where exactly do you live that the tea isn’t liquid?!?
ENGLAND. WHERE IT IS IN A BAG AND YOU MAKE IT YOURSELF.
like what do you do with already liquid tea? Microwave it?
No it’s sweet tea you drink it cold
WHO DRINKS COLD TEA???
HAVE YOU NEVER HAD ICED/SWEET TEA BEFORE?!?
so i reblogged this from a british person and i’ve been laughing at their tags for 600 years
England, you stole tea from China. You’ve had it a mere 4 centuries compared to their 30+. Don’t play like you’re some kind of authority.
