If this were my daughter, I would have been LIVID. A 17-year-old student at Branden River High School in Florida was humiliated by school officials for allegedly violating the dress code. Lizzy Martinez wore a baggy, long-sleeved t-shirt to school without a bra. Lizzy was called into the dean’s office on Monday, where she was told that her breasts were drawing stares and distracting other students.
The dean told her she would need to put on another shirt under the one she was wearing. She was then asked by the dean to “bounce around” to see how her breast’s moved with the second garment on.
Apparently, Lizzy’s breasts were still too breast-ish for the dean. So Lizzy was instructed to go to the nurse’s office. There, she was given Band-Aids, and told to place them over her nipples. The entire experience left Lizzy feeling humiliated and uncomfortable. In tears, she left school early. Now, as the story is shared and spread all over the internet, people are coming to Lizzy’s defense. And the the school has created a most unwelcome firestorm over their handling of this situation.
