me saying no isn’t me being rude it’s me protecting myself and my energies. this applies to every situation in which i say no in. and i don’t need to explain myself and that’s awesome and i love it. hell ya.
For me and my friends growing up, being told things like ‘you have to wear this because that’s what boys wear” or “dresses are for not for your body type” was frustrating and a pretty bad time.
The bottom line for me is, if someone feels happier and more comfortable in a particular ‘type’ of uniform, then that’s something that should be encouraged, not punished. Students have enough to focus on at school, having to fight to be yourself shouldn’t be added to that.
