Parent of a female teen whose school banned leggings
#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators
The parent’s name is Juliet Bond. From what I’ve read, she’s a parent I’d want on my child’s PTA. Juliet Bond and her husband also included this statement in a letter to the principal (who is female and apparently oblivious to the archaically patriarchal structures she’s enforcing):
"This kind of message lands itself squarely on a continuum that blames girls and women for assault by men. It also sends the message to boys that their behaviors are excusable or understandable, given what the girls are wearing. And if the sight of a girl’s leg is too much for boys at Haven to handle, then your school has a much bigger problem to deal with."

Getting pregnant does not changE YOUR BONE STRUCTURE I literally cannot with your fucking anons so fucking stupid.
how are people this stupid
If you make them angry enough they’ll call you a—a *gasp* cracker. Tread lightly, Rusilko. You don’t know who you’re dealing with.
So… am I the only one who researches things?
Getting pregnant isn’t working out. You literally have a person inside of you changing your body. I’m not even getting into this. You are all complete idiots and anyone trying to tell you that you can change your bone structure is selling you some bullshit
The pelvis is made up of two large bones joined by cartilage and ligaments at two joints in the woman’s lower back at the sacrum (called the sacroiliac joints) and at the front symphysis pubis bone.
During late pregnancy hormones soften and relax these ligaments, making the pelvis elastic, rather than rigid. This gives the pelvic bones the ability to stretch and open more easily for the birth of the baby.
Positive body points to remember….
- Your pelvis is not fused and DOES stretch and open for the amazing process of birth.
- The baby’s skull bones are divided into five plates that cross over during labour, making their head smaller by moulding to fit the birth canal.
- Being upright lets gravity help the pelvis to open and aids the descent of the baby during labour.
Some women find feeling their pelvic bones useful in helping them understand how their pelvis is positioned and how it shifts during pregnancy and labour.
Come on now, ladies. Science. Research. You’re smart women. Do the thing.
