These girls aren’t allowed to wear leggings to school unless they’re ‘not fat’

‘Even if you’re not fat, you look fat’

A South Carolina high school principal just told female students they shouldn’t wear leggings unless they are “not fat.”

It was during a 10th grade assembly about clothing and conduct that Stratford High School principal at Heather Taylor told female students they shouldn’t be wearing leggings if they’re above a certain size.

“I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now: Unless you’re a size 0 or a 2 and you wear something like that, even though you’re not fat, you look fat,” Taylor is on record saying to the students.

According to the school’s formal dress-code, “leggings, tights, yoga pants and spandex must be worn under clothing that cover to mid-thigh,” but there is nothing implying that only girls of a certain size are allowed to wear leggings.

Students and parents everywhere are outraged.

“It was extremely offensive to me honestly, because I’ve always been criticized for my size by other students,” Jordan Timmerman, a sophomore at Stratford High School, told babe today. “It was shocking and disgusting to me.”

Timmerman said already-sensitive students could have been “set off” by the principals body-regulatory comments. “They could’ve done something bad to themselves.”

Principal Taylor apologized to students in a released statement , claiming she never meant to offend anyone and said she was one of their biggest fans and supporters.
