Okay so I'm a girl and I come from a very conservative background, went to a private religious school in London and for the past two years for sixth form I've been going to a state school.

So a lot of the girls obviously wear mini skirts which is cool but I just wonder don't people get turned on by that. As a girl I feel so bad that it's distracting to me. i mean people say that it's guys who sexualise girls but I feel that it's sexual though im not sure if its because I'm socialised to think that wya because of my upbringing. A girl in my class was wearing a mini skirt a while ago and her underwear was very visible because she had her legs up on a chair and it was just really distracting, I tried really hard not to look but it was just so visible, literally everyone could see if they walked past her chair.

i don't get it, girls do you want people to see your underwear when wearing a mini skirt? And for people in general does it turn you on or distract you at all when you see a girl in mini skirt at school?

Your school's dress code is too lax. Not much that you can do about it though

we're not actually allowed to wear mini skirts but nobody really cares if the students do.

I use to work in my high schools learning support department as a mentor basically doing anything from helping those in the lower years with problems (e.g fall outs, family issues, mental health ect) to just helping keeping a space open at lunch for them to go where its less over stimulating and those with behavioural issues (This was maybe 70% of our kids) could hang out and avoid trouble.

Something I found a lot was pointing out to some of the behavioural girls (typically between 13-15) that their skirts where too high and needed pulled down, often it was to the point where their behinds where barely covered by very small tight skirts. There was also quite a few times where we would have to remind a girl that the way she was sitting was basically showing off her underwear and if that made me feel uneasy I cant think how a teacher or other student felt.

For the most part I dont think the girls where going out of their way to get attention or show off, it was a mix of their style and just not thinking in the moment

This. Not that it matters whether it is lax or not.At my school (when I was there) more often than not it was the girls who would lets say push the boundaries of the dress code.

Haven't you ever been accused of sexualising the girls for telling them off for it?

I know you’re not asking me this. When the teachers pointed out the skirt length to some of the worst offenders. Sometimes they would accuse of sexism, ie why are you telling the boys off about uniform (maybe because us chaps had to wear a suit and tie, there’s not much you can do wrong with this)

Theres nothing sexual about me pointing out them breaking school dress codes, I wasnt the only person pointing it out and this included female staff.
Theres a difference between looking at a kid and noticing its very unconformable for everyone and/or their breaking dress codes, especially when youre a girl you have to be aware of how youre sitting.

It's when you get the 11 year olds in yr 7 wearing mini skirts and leaving nothing to the imagination, you begin to wonder what kind of a world we are truly living in

Of course.

A teacher would say to a student, your skirt is too short.

Student would reply, why aren’t you moaning at the boys as well as why does it matter what my skirt length is, it doesn’t affect anything. I’m sure male teachers shouldn’t be commenting on my skirt came up a couple of times.

Def, in my expreince it was the girls pushing the rules on dress code not boys because theres much less a guy can do in that regard, especially if your school enfored ties

just generally though do you think it's normal or wrong for someone to be turned on by that? That someone being the same age or of similar age (not anyone who is significantly younger e.g. under the age of 13)

In my school ties were enforced for everybody in years 7-11. In year 12-13 the boys still had to wear ties and jackets etc. (We did have the luxury of choosing our own) whereas the ladies had the rather vague business attire.

I don't really think it matter if its sexulised or not, its just not professional. School is meant to be a work environment, not a fashion show.

I mean of course, these are children we are talking about so with a major age diffrence its wrong.
If they are the same age its not so much an issue given its not so much malishish intent as noticing someone attractive within your own range
