LAWTON, Okla. — School dress codes have been a major issue in 2015. Many teens girls have refuted their respective schools’ decision by posting their outfits on Facebook. But one Oklahoma high schooler fought back with a message.

Rose Lynn went to school in what most would consider appropriate clothing. She wore a crop top, a long cardigan, leggings, and boots.

But she was sent home, allegedly, because her shirt didn’t cover her crotch.

She posted a picture of her outfit to Facebook, next to a picture of a shirt that did cover her private areas.

“So today I was sent home from class, after being in school for two hours, for my outfit. Because I’m developed farther than the average girl my age, I am required to go home and change. Yet, if I was skin and bones or over weight, (not to offend anyone) I would be over looked and no comment would be made, (AT MY PARTICULAR SCHOOL.) Because “they must do that to feel better about themselves and they crave attention” But because I look like a CURVY woman and may distract young boys, I have to miss class and change my outfit. So once again, Society has failed to advocate young ladies, by confining them in a box, where they are stripped from their sense of self respect and self expression, rather than teaching young men to respect the boundaries of young ladies. My response : ‪#‎Feminism‬‪#‎YoullDistractTheBoys‬ ‪#‎SocietyIsFailing‬

The t-shirt she wore upon returning to school read, “It doesn’t cover your crotch. You’ll distract the boys.”

Her response has gone viral, racking up nearly 17,000 like and more than 15,000 shares since Dec. 11.
