Erica Edgerly posted a pic to Facebook showing what her sister Macy, a senior honor student at Orangefield High School, was sent home from school for wearing.
She explained: "I'm sorry but I have to stand up for my family and for women who are degraded and judged for their bodies and clothing everyday. People wonder why women feel insecure about their bodies or what they wear.. And it's because you're told your clothing is inappropriate when you're completely fully clothed, even when you're not showing cleavage or anything."
Erica continued: "How about instead of body shaming women, school systems should start teaching 15-18 year old boys to stop degrading women with their eyes and contributing to the rape culture of today's society. Bottom line, girls cannot go to school in comfortable clothes THAT COVER EVERYTHING because school systems are afraid that hormonal boys won't be able to control their eyes and minds. And that is such a bigger problem than worrying about clothing."
She later reposted the image and explained the school's policy on skirt length (applied here to her sister's oversized shirt paired with leggings): "The rule is they are allowed as long as it is fingertip length. The front and back of her shirt were that length.. But the small part on the sides was not."
The picture of Erica's picture has since gone viral, with many people weighing in on how ridiculous it was to send her sister home.
