People really don't seem to get that being distracted by "bum-hugging clothing" (aka: obvious body contours) is pretty strongly built into biology. You (especially) can't "teach" newly adolescent boys to just not be distracted by that—at least, not without going to much further lengths than minor dress code stuff.

I'm all for not blaming the victim when it comes to rape, but when it comes to boys looking at girls...

I think you can teach boys to be respectful and you can expect them to control themselves -- especially middle school students. You really disagree?

Hell yeah, I disagree. Hell, full grown adults, men and women can't control themselves in public. Have you ever been to walmart? Have you ever driven in rush hour? Have you ever been a hormonal teenager?

All I'm saying is that biologically, people can be jerks. It's just what we are. I mean shit, we still have war. If some kid in high school is staring at a girls backside and she gets offended or he touches her inappropriately...sure, his fault, but he could hardly help it. This is why we put locks on cabinets and plastic plugs in outlets. Because children can't help themselves sometimes.

All that should really matter is that something is causing a distraction and that needs to be addressed. It's the same as when cellphones became really popular and commonplace, they banned use in schools because it was a distraction. Simple as that.

It could be argued that wearing provocative clothing in public is a form of sexual violence against men.
