This is a very strong message.

The University of Missouri's football team suspended all team activities — right in the middle of their season — and more than 30 players walked out on the team in an effort to boycott President Tim Wolfe.

jim bazen high school dress code

This is just all kinds of wrong!

Last week, Principal Jim Bazen of Plymouth Christian High School, posted a fairly controversial editorial about dress codes to Michigan Live.

Bazen's article was a response to a Grand Rapid's Press opinion piece about sexism, but many believe the Michigan principal crossed the line.

In the editorial, he wrote:

And our girls are taught by the media that 'sex' or 'being sexy' will get them attention, especially from boys … and they get it.
