I am deeply and sincerely apologetic if I ever prevented you from learning. I am deeply and sincerely apologetic that society has taught you that women need to wear “proper” clothing in school and in the workplace. I, even more so, am extremely apologetic that in the country of the “free”, our education system has taught you that women are distracting when showing skin: a part of them that men also share. What am I most apologetic for? The fact that from kindergarten all the way to my senior year of high school I was subject to my outfits and what i wore that day instead of the knowledge in my head. That I would be taken out of class just to discuss my apparel instead of letting me LEARN. Instead of letting me do the thing that we are meant to do in school. If someone is distracted that I wore a tank top because it’s 95 degrees out, then that is their issue to fix, not mine. They should be taught the values of their education and redirected to anything besides my human shoulders. I’m sorry that young men have been taught by the education system that they can wear what they’d like but I, their female counterpart, must be conscious because I may be a distraction. They, not a distraction on me, though. The day I become a teacher is the day there is one less teacher restricting what students may or may not wear in my classroom.
