“The Dress Code: Or the Policing of Young Bodies” Modern Manhood: The Podcast

The dress code is something we have discussed before but just casually, and I just keep thinking what is the big issue with the god damn dress code, why are we spending so much time on it, and why do people have so many different opinions on it. Well let me tell you that the dress code IS a big issue, because it’s a window to how our society treats women, men, our bodies, and our decency.  Articles used: https://www.racked.com/2018/7/2/17519874/dress-code-duct-tape-enforcement-violation https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/life/news/a44798/boys-wear-skirts-protest-dress-code/ https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/boys-in-several-quebec-high-schools-wear-skirts-to-protest-dress-code-1.5755570 https://noworegon.org/issues/model-student-dress-code/

By German V

My name is German Villegas and I have worked with youth and males in a human service capacity for 5 years plus. It was one of my passions to help out males of all kinds in their quest for their own perfect manhood, and to be a better ally to the many marginalized population in my community and beyond.
