Outrage After Male Teacher Sends Teen Home Due To 'Distracting' Turtleneck Dress Combo

There has always been a double-standard for girls and boys when it comes to dress-codes. In every student handbook, there are about ten pages reserved for girls: No bra straps showing, no skirts above the pinky finger, no collarbones, no leggings, no backs showing — I could easily go on for several paragraphs.

When you finally get to the boy section: No swear words on shirts, no hats... and that's basically the extent of it.

I was under the impression that school systems were changing and people were finally understanding how unfair it is to put the responsibility on the girls to make sure the boys don't get 'distracted.' But apparently we're still not there yet. And, apparently, it's not just the students who find it distracting. Ew.

Parents Discuss Times People Without Kids Had No Idea What They Were Talking About

Being a parent comes with a lot of knowledge. It's not a job for everyone. It's not even really a job since you don't make any kind of profit. However, from what I've gathered once you're a parent you begin to see things differently, suddenly you are bombarded with so much new information and a completely different lifestyle. It also looks extremely difficult but it must be worth it since so many people keep doing it, literally every day.

People Reveal Words Their Families Completely Made Up

When you spend too much time with people a lot starts to happen. You can predict their moods, memorize their sleep schedule, and of course, you develop some kind of a dialect that only becomes more and more abstract with time. Made-up words can definitely solidify a relationship. So, who do we spend the most time with growing up? Yep, our families. And some 'famiolects' just happen to go much farther than others.

Funny Tweets About The Special Skills Parents Develop By Mistake

Parenting is an all-encompassing job. When you have kids, you somehow turn into a maid, a doctor, a nurse, a chef, an electrician a therapist, and a teacher overnight, all without a pay rise. But with your new and improved 'job' description, you pick up a bunch of skills that you wouldn't otherwise have learned. From knowing when the perfect time to throw away the flower your child picked for you, or how to shorten picture stories, the skills parents develop by mistake are useless in all other scenarios. These hilarious tweets from parents about the skills they picked up might just hit close to him if you have some little ones of your own.

Moments People Realized They Were Turning Into Their Parents

Growing up, every kid swears they'll never be anything like their parents. All the annoying things parents do or say, all the bad dad jokes they make, and all the rules they enforce are things their kid would rather die than do themselves. You name it; if your parent does it, you'll want to do it differently. Because kids always know best, right? But somehow, the inevitable happens, and as we get older, we notice the oddly familiar patterns in our behavior. And somehow, slowly but surely, we start turning into our parents. These Redditors shared the horrifying moments they realized they were becoming their parents and some of them hit home pretty hard.

People Reveal The Strangest Lies Their Parents Told Them

Let's be honest, children ask too many questions. It's a beautiful thing how creative they are, but it can also get freaking annoying to explain every single thing in the world to them. If you get them down the "why" train you'll never be able to escape.

 "Mommy, why can't I go outside?" 

"Because it's freezing"

 "Why?"

"Because temperature is under 30 degrees" 

"Why?" 

"Because it's winter" 

"Why?" 

"Because we're in the northern hemisphere of Earth"

"Why"

"AHHHHHHHHHHH"

Sometimes it's just easier to throw in a white lie.

First Date On Valentine’s Day Ends Up As An Awkward Double Date With Guy’s Parents

Whenever Valentine's day rolls around, I can't help but remember the weirdest Valentine's day first date I ever had. This was a few years ago now, but it still feels like just yesterday, because it was literally wild. I agreed to go out with this guy from my gym, let's call him Doug. I was single and ready to be swept off my feet, so when he proposed a special Valentine's day dinner and dancing event, I was psyched! Only when I got there...it turned out to be a double date. WITH HIS PARENTS. And not like "oh we happened to bump into each other and decided to sit together." No. Turns out, he called them the second I said yes and ASKED them to come on a date with us. And so began the most painfully awkward night of my life…

Funny Tweets About Kids Terrible Attempts At Making Jokes

Everyone loves a dad joke, but kid jokes, not so much. Sure, it's cute watching a kid make up a joke or rewording one they've heard elsewhere and totally butchering it. When you have to hear the same one over and over again, it loses its charm. Especially when you've got a million other things to do, and you emotional the emotional energy to funny them how funny they are for the millionth time in a row. Because parenting is exhausting enough without fake laughing a hundred times a day. If this sounds at all relatable to you, then you'll love these tweets from parents all about their kids' 'hilarious' jokes.

Funny Tweets About The Love-Hate Relationship Between Siblings

Growing up with siblings can feel like an Olympic sport at times. How fast can you run into your sister's room, steal her clothes and then bolt out again before she comes back upstairs? How close to beating up your brother can you get before he tells your mom what you did? It's a love-hate relationship, but as much as you drive each other crazy, they're your flesh and blood, so you love them really. These tweets about growing up with siblings are all-too-relatable and will give you flashbacks from growing up which you might have tried to forget.

Kids Describing Their Parent's Jobs: Funny Twitter Thread

One day, I was about seven-years-old when my dad brought me home a bunch of spare stationery from his office. We're talking highlighters, sticky notes, pens, and a stapler. The next day, I went to school and told my teacher that my dad's job was a 'pen tester,' and he sat all day testing out pens to see if they work. His actual job? A marketing director. Oh, to be that blissfully naive again. The phrase 'truth from the mouth of babes' is a reality that many parents live each day. Someone Tweeted, "My friend's daughter was asked by her teacher what does her mother do for a living. Miss thing said move papers around and talk on the phone. My friend is a judge." It received thousands of likes and shares, with people responding with similar funny examples of what they think their parents do for a living. Kids really do say the darndest things!
