    This Country needs Help.......


    A school district aims to reevaluate its dress code to allow boys to wear makeup. (Photo: Getty Images)

    Days after a male high school student in Pearland, Texas, received in-school suspension for wearing makeup in the classroom, the school district is being proactive in getting its institutions’ dress code changed to best accommodate its students.
    A teenager, whose identity has not been made public, who attends the Shadow Creek High School in the Alvin Independent School District received disciplinary action for violating a rule in the district’s dress code that reads, “Boys may not wear makeup,” and refusing to take it off when asked. However, people throughout the community have gone to bat for the student, saying that the rule is outdated. One of the boy’s friends, Jasmine Richards, even launched a petition to get it revised, according to Houston local station KHOU.
    The petition that appeared on Change.org on Saturday reads: “Alvin ISD has a dress code policy in place that includes several gender-biased policies such as preventing boys from wearing makeup and earrings (both things that girls are allowed to wear). These policies are based entirely on outdated and sexist gender standards. Prohibiting boys from wearing makeup because makeup is ‘only for girls’ also prohibits them from expressing themselves in what is supposed to be a safe environment.”
    As a result of the petition, Alvin ISD responded by setting up a meeting with the student who was suspended and his friend Richards, which Assistant Superintendent Daniel Combs tells Yahoo Lifestyle was a “good learning opportunity.”
    “We started a great dialogue and allowed the students to share their insight, share their perspective, and share their concerns. And working together with the students, we talked about what’s a good course of action moving forward,” Combs says. “As a district, we are going to put together a committee that will allow our community, our parents, as well as our students, to have a voice, and go back through the process to look at our dress code and, again, identify areas of concern and make recommendations.”
    The process that Combs details isn’t something new, as the district has a fairly frequent review process where a representative committee makes recommendations to the administration. But he says that the students will be an “integral part” of this particular revision, where the district aims to address the specific concerns head-on.
    So far, Combs says that the community has responded positively to the idea of reevaluating the dress code, with many noting that the district has been super responsive.
    “That’s our goal as a school district,” he says, “to serve each student as an individual.”

    it is sad and maddening, the loft is completely out of control and the violence will get worse propagated by the left against the right but the leftist media will try to blame it on the right. the left is now trying to "buy" votes by threatening the Democrats that if they vote for the SCOTUS nominee they will give $1 mil to their opponent but, if they vote against him they wive it to them...
    IMO the only way to stop them is to bury them... either at the polls or on the battlefield.

    this kind of garbage is, and should be, ILLEGAL.... ANY member of the US Senate that "sells their vote" should be IMPEACHED and removed from office for "malfeasance in office" as well as accepting a bribe for a vote.... and the "representative(s)" of the DNC that made said offer / threat should be arrested by the US Marshall and jailed for bribery of an elected official...

    The bigger problem is with the media, giving this ridiculous bull**** any press. Its trivial and has no real meaning in the bigger picture.

    Your right BigMac....it has no real meaning.....however, propaganda has influenced elections and Wars for many, many years. It does have effect on people of little common sense. The bad part is, those with little or no common sense, gets to vote.

    Yes, even the very ignorant get to vote. And are easily manipulated. Case in point, cnn, msnbc, foxnews. All 3 networks news. None of them are a good source for election information.
