Kaitlyn Juvik is certainly attractive. But the Montana girl with the bright grin and huge brown eyes drew much more attention than she expected when she showed up to class braless. Kaitlyn, a student at Helena High School, was pushed into the limelight when she opted to forego wearing a bra.
Her clothes — or, in this instance, lack thereof — did not go unnoticed, much to her surprise and dismay. School authorities reportedly forced Kaitlyn to alter her attire after someone reported that the way she was dressed was making them uncomfortable. Kaitlyn was issued a dress code infraction as a result of the report, but anybody who believed the fashion faux pas matter would stop there was gravely incorrect.
Rather, the problem caused major headaches for the school administration. Although the principal said that the infraction had nothing to do with Kaitlyn’s undergarments, Kaitlyn stated the opposite, confessing that she was not wearing a bra. “I’m not going to check students’ undergarments,” Principal Steve Thennis maintained, maintaining that the problem wasn’t Kaitlyn’s absence of a bra but failing to elaborate on the nature of the infraction.
They are going to request them to dress rightly, and if they think it is unsuitable, male or female, they will ask them to cover up, Thennis continued. Since he said that Kaitlyn received the violation because she needed to cover up rather than because she didn’t have a bra on, he must be implying that her top, as shown in the photograph below, was too revealing.
Kaitlyn said that what she was confronted about was wrong. As long as nothing is showing and one is covered up, girls shouldn’t have to wear a bra, she said. Then, in a Facebook post accompanying the image above, she said that if anyone is inquisitive THIS is the shirt she was wearing when she was called out!
An irate Kaitlyn clarified in the picture caption that the top is “not see through” and “not inappropriate!” She added that one certainly can’t tell she is not wearing a bra unless one looks very hard. She was certainly not wearing anything that violated the dress code. However, a quick glance at her bare shoulder reveals that there is no bra strap.
The incident offended a number of people, not just Kaitlyn. Students came out to defend her freedom to not wear a bra to school. Students condemning the event even formed a Facebook group called “No Bra, No Problem” to express their outrage over the allegedly sexist occurrence. “The movement for gender equality, women’s rights, and the right to be comfortable.” “In order to combat discrimination in schools, we focus on the right of girls to go braless,” according to the page description.
“The fact that I was told it makes people uncomfortable offended me because it’s my body,” Juvik said. “It’s my natural body, and I’m not sure why that bothers someone.” And, obviously, bra or no bra, Kaitlyn has a lot of people rooting for her — no pun intended. Kaitlyn’s mother noted that the protest was about more than bras, as male students intended to demonstrate their solidarity and backing for the braless movement by jokingly wearing bras outside of their clothes. She claims it’s about sexual objectification and body shaming.
“I completely support my daughter!” “I am very proud of the point she is trying to make and the movement that she and her friends have created,” Kaitlyn Juvik’s mother, Tami, said after the story appeared on KXLH’s Facebook page. “This isn’t simply about wearing or not wearing a bra. “Our daughters are constantly body shamed and sexualized,” she continued.
“We need to teach them to be comfortable in their own skin and not feel the need to hide beneath their clothes.” “The schools have bigger problems than whether or not my daughter is wearing a bra!” she stated. “Ask your daughters if they wear bras on a regular basis; I think you’ll be surprised!”
However, not everyone is on the same page. “If there are such rules at school, they should be followed, just as they are on the job.” “There are plenty of other occasions to go braless,” one social media user said. Pushing the limits puts you in danger of being called out and experiencing penalties. It’s comparable to choosing to speed and having a police officer pull you over.
A female’s body is hers, but she must treat it with respect if she wants to be respected. Why would you choose not to wear a bra to school? Most high school students are minors, and there’s a reason we don’t let them create the rules. In each scenario, you do not have to agree with the rules, but you must obey them or face the consequences.
