We live in world and times of global dramatic changes. And almost all of them started with something simple, almost trivial. By accepting small changes, "lesser evils" we end someday in surroundings we don't like. It's simple as that. Overdramatic ? If you think so.Phasmal said:Thats a bit overdramatic, dont you think?JesterRaiin said:1. Sexist this, sexist that. It's too politically correct for my taste. Both genders are different and they should be treated differently. Trying to disprove this simple and obvious fact leads us closer and closer to blurred future populated by androgynous, indeterminated human-things that feel offended by "women" and "man" labels.orangeban said:1) Sex-specific uniform is sexist, because it encourages treating the sexes differently, and it splits the school into two factions and discourages socialisation between the two.
Yeah, women and men are different, but what exactly about my reproductive organs mandate that I must wear a skirt?
I went to an all girl school where skirts were (almost) mandatory. There were trousers but they were so ugly very few girls wanted to wear them, but at least they had the option. Wearing skirts in winter is pretty horrible.
As i stated before, by wearing uniforms children are introduced into "system". There are plenty of things we can't do in life because our culture, society or any other "system" forbids us to do. Sooner we learn about this, about the way we can deal with it, about cons and pros, the better. For some it will mean accepting "good bevavior", for other - becoming rebels. "Each to his own" - either way is fine with me.
My point is : I'm not against "options". Simply, i think that understanding the way world works is most valuable experience that school can deliver, much more valuable than math, physics, biology geography or whatever schools teach nowadays. And yes, such things as uniforms are part of it.
