Seeing, they say, is believing. While the girls had all heard from their coach that the boys will be naked, they still had trouble believing it might be true, as doubt has a way of creeping in and altering recollections. In the week since “the announcement, ” as they had come to call it, disbelief had seeped back into the minds of the girls. That the boys will be completely naked was simply unbelievable. When Monday arrived and the final bell rang, ending the last class of the day, the girls on the swim team raced to the locker room, eager to finally know the truth. The door to the locker room held a poster-sized piece of paper. The girls recognized Miss Tewksbury’s handwriting to say, “Please change your footwear only and report directly to the poolside bleachers.” The girls quickly slipped out of their school shoes and socks, stepped into their blue and white team flip-flops, and exited the locker room to the pool area. The coaches and several of the female faculty had already assembled. Miss Tewksbury quickly quieted the girls and sat them in the first two rows of the bleachers. “In a moment, we will invite the boys out of the locker room. I will ask again that you ladies remain respectful of these young men, who are your classmates and teammates,” she started. “Remember, there will be no specific discussions of their penises, no insults relating to their bodies, and no attempts at humiliating them. We understand that this is all new to you, and we all appreciate that it will be distracting at first. The boys will understandably be nervous, as they will be naked in front of their classmates. You girls will obviously have many places to look, seemingly all at once.” Some girls giggled at this remark, which brought a smile to... ... middle of paper ... ...called James and one other boy, Sean Ross, forward. Both boys had full erections that stood straight up and away from their bodies. With their hard penises swaying, they walked tentatively forward until they stood directly in front of the bleachers once again. “Erections are perfectly normal and natural reactions in the male body and will sometimes happen,” Miss Tewksbury said. She indicated the two boys’ penises with a casual wave of her hand. “Having them should not embarrass the boys and you girls should not be bothered by them at all. This provides an excellent segue to my next point of discussion,” she finished. She then called the rest of the boys over. They all stood, holding hands, directly in front of the girls. The same six or seven boys continued to ebb and flow. While they threatened full boners, each managed to keep them at bay through sheer willpower.

Almost all high school boys spend every day of their four years in high school working towards a reputation of a strong, manly man. Quite a lot of teenage boys find crossing any line of manhood obnoxious and trivial even for the sake of humor and school spirit. Homecoming week is full of events that are life-long memories for any student who attempts to participate along his or her fellow classmates and friends. One of the most exhilarating occasions during Homecoming week is the Powderpuff game when girls play flag football and boys perform as their cheerleaders. Powderpuff is the one and only opportunity for the junior and senior boys in high school to act, dress, and dance absolutely inappropriately in front of basically the entire school for the three to five minutes during the halftime show of the game. Even the most uptight and seemingly tough guys of the junior and senior classes sprout out of their shells to essentially love the weeks they spend dedicating their free time and attention to perfecting their powderpuff dance routine. After all is said and done, there is no possible way that any of the boys can possibly walk away from the powderpuff game feeling as if they did not have an excellent experience, but the process of cherishing their memories is not only stressful but tests the limits of sanity of not only the boys but the girls that take the time to teach the dance routine. An unbelievable amount of effort is put into producing a seemingly faultless routine which includes recruiting the boys who want to dance, picking songs for the music collaboration, making up the dance moves, teaching the boys the routine, perfecting every trick and step, decorating outfits and costumes, and treasuring every second that one spe...
Saturday night, May 15, 2004, was Lemoore High School's prom. As Lemoore principal Jim Bennett looked around the dance floor, he saw most of the guys dancing behind their dates, grinding their hips against the girls as the girls gyrated back against them. They were freak-dancing, which is how most people dance to hip-hop, but Mr. Bennett had always felt it was too sexual for a school event. "It's [the same as] foreplay," he says. During the last song of the night, a girl got on all fours and rubbed her butt against
For the third time today, everyone in the classroom was in a standstill. Eventually, I was greeted with eighteen pair of eyes, which appeared to say, ‘who in the hell do you think you are talking to her like that?’ heck, you would’ve thought I called the girl out of her name with the dirty stares I was receiving.
In the book, the authors detail the lives of the players and those around them. The impact of being away from family also takes center stage, from dealing with the death of parents and siblings to coping with changes in family dynamics. The game of basketball also helped the girls get away from the Indian Wars and the Dawes Act that had occurred before the boarding school was founded. For many of the girls, basketball was a grounding force that continued to foster an important sisterhood among team members.

Joes High School’s total enrollment consisted of sixteen girls, and twenty boys. Ten of the boys that had enrolled there played basketball. All of the boys were over six feet tall. Lane Sullivan, the new coach of the basketball team, had never even touched a basketball before he started coaching. Sullivan had never coached anything at all before he started coaching the Joes basketball team. In order to gain knowledge about the sport, he got a book about it. He started coaching in 1927, but before the 1928 basketball season, Joes High School didn’t even have a gym. Instead, they’d practice outside on a dirt court, and two times a week they’d take a bus to the nearest gym, which was ten miles away. In order to play home games, the boys had to play in the local dance hall. The “court” was nowhere near regulation size, and the ceiling was so short that the boys couldn’t shoot an arched shot. The people who attended these basketball games had no place to sit and watch the game, the all stood around the edges of the court and on the small stage. Joes High School finally got their own gym around Christmas time because the people of Joes donated their time and material in order to make it happen.

As the story continues, Sammy curiously watches the provocative young ladies as they stroll through the store looking for groceries. In this fictional story, Sammy describes all three noticeable ladies, the main girl, "Queenie" he describes her as the leader of the two other girls. The second young lady he described was the chunky one; he fully described the chunky girl from head to toe, because Sammy had more descriptive words regarding her appearance. The third girl was the taller of the two. She was not as striking as the other two young ladies. The girls were barefoot and wore bathing suits, which is why they caught Sammy's attention. The reason being not because of the bathing suits they were wearing, but the way they strolled down the isles with confidence as they walked through the store. These young ladies were, "The kind of girls that other girls think are "Striking" and "Attractive." (48) Updike wants to let the reader know these girls wanted attention and only attention; by the way he described what they were wearing and how they flaunted themselves.
Summer has come to an end and school back in full swing. One is ready to crush the challenges facing a 5th grader. The last bell for recess sounds. Young boys race outside to enjoy the sun’s warmth. Name calling and horse-playing around immediately begins as they plan their weekend fun. Challenging each other to execute silly acts or daring one another to flirt with the girls across the playground. One yells out if you don’t jump from the top you are a sissy. Then one hears ask Julie out first. Recess is almost over when another one yells out he won’t…he’s a gay sissy. Silence has now blanketed the playground and one could hear a pin drop. Saved by the bell it was time to line up and head back to class. The final bell of the day
From their faces you would have thought they’d never seen a girl before.” (184,185). The boys desire to see the girl further shows their desperate need for something to change their way of life.
In addition to that, female students are not physically averting their peers eyes towards their bodies. A young girl cannot be held responsible for her peers choosing to be distracted by her clothing choices (Levin). It is each individual student’s responsibility to focus on their school work while in a learning environment (Levin). Girls should not be shamed by schools into covering their bodies, rather, their fellow students should be shamed for not controlling themselves. Sexism in dress codes transfers blame onto female students for sexual discrimination and distraction in the classroom instead of holding individuals of both genders responsible for their education (Dockterman). The choice of a student to deflect their focus from learning to another students dress is solely up to them (Levin).
I ran to the locker room, hoping to get there first before the rest of the girls. I liked a clean area to change my clothes, and when my peers came in the clean area I wanted soon disappeared under a heap of clothes and dirty tennis shoes. I quickly pulled on my shirt and skirt and changed my tennis shoes for my floral boots I wore constantly. I hurried to the high school entryway.
Schools all over the world have created and enforced dress codes. Some schools are more relaxed than others; however, they all share the common theme of regulating what students can and cannot wear during the school day. But what happens when the latest fashion trends completely compromise the implemented dress code? That is the problem student’s-particularly young women- are facing in today’s society. The overwhelming increase in dress code violations has brought to light another issue associated with the codes: sexism. More and more, young women are being targeted and punished for dress code violations. While this may be due to the fact that fashion in today’s society is all about tight clothes, it could also lead to more long-lasting and sinister consequences. The rules set in place by schools prevent students and teachers from being “offended” or “distracted” by what these girls are wearing; however, this also lends to rape culture and making girls believe it is their fault if they receive unwanted male attention, as well as leading boys to think their behavior is okay. Dress codes send the message that it is a girl’s fault of anything bad happens to her due to her “suggestive” clothing.
