Students explore fashion without clothing regulations

Fashion and clothing decisions are ways for individuals to express their personalities, and some Temple understudies who had clothing standards at past schools get the chance to investigate this.

Of the 17,000 individuals between the ages of 18 and 64 surveyed, 22 percent accept clothing standards in secondary schools cutoff individuals’ opportunity to convey what needs be, and 13 percent said it focuses on their gender in unjustifiable ways, as indicated by a 2017 overview by the Today Show.

Madison Joy, a freshman health professions major from Vermont, said she feels increasingly freed in school without a clothing regulation.

“At Temple, I feel like I’m judged less, so I tend to be more daring in what I wear,” Joy said. “There are a variety of body types here at Temple so I feel more represented. When I see other girls that look like me wearing clothes I used to be too scared to wear, like crop tops, I feel affirmed that I really can wear whatever I like.”

In 2018, the head of Oakville High School in Oakville, Missouri apologized to guardians subsequent to telling female students they ought not flaunt their bodies inspired by a paranoid fear of “distracting” male colleagues, KSDK (Channel 5) revealed.

Kate Kubiak, a first year recruit civil engineering major, said that since clothing regulations are never again upheld in college, instructional time isn’t squandered as a result of how a young lady is dressed.

“One time a girl in my class got [in trouble] for wearing a crop top and the whole process of her getting sent to the office was much more distracting than I think the shirt had the potential to be,” Kubiak said.

Across the country, 53 percent of government funded schools upheld an exacting clothing regulation during the 2015-16 school year, as indicated by the National Center for Education Statistics. Teachers are bound to teach young ladies of shading for minor offenses, similar to clothing regulation arrangement infringement, and are bound to give them harsher disciplines, as per a recent report by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.

Sociology Professor Amanda Czerniawski said clothing standard guidelines are frequently aimed at the female student body, which sexualizes young ladies.

“This raises the interesting question of whose responsibility is it to regulate teenage sexuality? Is it that of the girls, to prevent being a distraction to the boys? Or is it that of the boys to learn how not to be distracted by the girls,” Czerniawski said. “The answers to these questions reveal the gendered nature of human sexuality.”

Soumya Sam, a first year recruit psychology major, said without a clothing regulation, she would now be able to utilize fashion to convey what needs be on campus.

“I can be as conservative or revealing as I’d like, which helps with my confidence in my body and personal style,” Sam said. “I can be as daring as I want because I don’t feel like my body or clothes are being criticized.”

Sam said she is eager to have picked a supportive college.

“The environment at Temple is a lot more supportive because I can see a lot of different people and see myself in them which makes me feel more confident in many aspects of my life,” Sam included.
