News on a different front

This just in on my RBC brokerage account:

10:58 pm ET US judge: School's rule for girls to wear skirts breaks law

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina charter school promoting traditional values engaged in unconstitutional sex discrimination by requiring girls to wear skirts, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Malcolm Howard ruled that Charter Day School can't enforce the skirts-only rule as part of its dress code that punishes violations with suspensions and even expulsion. No child has been expelled for violating the dress code since the school opened in 2000, Howard said in a decision filed on Thursday.

I don't have the rest of the story or any more details.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

This does beg a question, why is the skirt policy being challenged now?
It's clearly wrong but there must have been some catalyst.
Realistically, even if the girls are allowed trousers the boys will not be especially welcome in skirts.
Harsh but true.

Wait what? You mean the girls don't have to identify as boys to wear pants?

So.... in North Carolina (a southern state), forcing girls to wear skirts is unconstitutional.... but forcing boys to wear pants is okay? Sex discrimination has been held up in courts numerous times, what gives here? Gender and sex isn't even mentioned in the constitution.

Now if the roles were reversed I can tell you exact how the judge would rule...

He'd say it's completely fair, reasonable, and constitutional to require males to wear trousers. It is not sex discrimination as we are enforcing district gender clothing differences as our girls are required to wear skirts.

But now that the judge has ruled in this, if a boy tries to wear a skirt how can they deny him this privilege without discriminating on him based on his sex (for being male)?

... oh I forgot, the southern ace in the hole.... RELIGIOUS FREEDOM... When all else fails, just say it's a moral outrage and invoke the official state religious code. :roll:
