Short shorts fray tempers at Australian School

FEMALE students at a Hunter high school have been told the length of their SHORTS is making male staff and students “UNCOMFORTABLE” and puts staff in “potentially AWKWARD situations”.

"We've had complaints from Mr Glitter, Mr Savile and Mr Clifford," said headteacher Chlamydia Strife. "These little sluts are asking for everything they get."

OK, I'll bite.


Why is a school employing teachers that feel uncomfortable around children?

Why is the head teacher named Chlamydia STrife?

From the link

...t how principal Jo Edwards addressed ...

Failed to see any mention of Chlamydia Strife.

"We've had complaints from Mr Glitter, Mr Savile and Mr Clifford,"

Arf. Surely complaints about Mr Gadd, Savile and Clifford?

“The wearing of shorts which are not long enough places our staff in potentially awkward situations and could be considered a child protection issue.”

What does the length matter since you're not supposed to touch them.

"“not my intention to reflect on the character of students addressed earlier, and I apologise if my choice of words caused offence”.

Top non-apology. Its tempting to start a thread for best non-apologies.

There's another one going around about some poor kid who wasn't allowed to go to the toilet to deal with their first period because they didn't have a 'toilet pass' which would require a doctor's note.

What the actual fuck? A lot of schools seem to be being run by people for whom no little power trip is too absurd. And the teachers applying these rules are just as culpable to be honest.

This is creepily weird too

Re 8:

Yes, Mrs. Smut, it's a uniform skirt, from an approved supplier. Yes, it's of a length specified in the school regulations, but I'm afraid that the little strumpet will have to wear something else, as she's giving me the horn.
