[Freedom of Expression?]

I respect dresscode rules. I think that they are slightly necessary because frankly, I really don't want to see a bigger girl in next to nothing (though for them it usually isn't enforced. Which is sad to see them degrade themselves in such a way.) However, when I wear a shirt that doesn't violate the dresscode in any way, I don't appreciate it when some teacher tells me to change my shirt simply because he doesn't like it. "The First Amendment guarantees many things, it doesn't guarantee that you won't be offended." I forget who said that but whomever did, thank you. I feel like my rights are being squashed simply because some jerk of a teacher (and that is me being polite about him) doesn't like it or me for that matter. Personally, if I didn't like what someone was wearing and it wasn't violating anything in the dresscode, I wouldn't let it get to me. Perhaps this seems small but it bothered me for awhile so I thought that I would write it down.
