Long Legs

I wear a skirt to school like many other girls.

A teacher stops me and says, "You're not in dresscode."

Are you serious? I'm the only one..because of my legs.

Long legs are a blessing and a curse.

I cannot wear shors or skirts to school because of dresscode, but everyon else can?

If you are going to discriminate because I have long legs,

Don't show videos in case some students don't like it.

Don't give us group projects in case some people don't enjoy them.

Or simply, don't give me dress code unless you plan on giving everyone dress code.

AAfter all, school is supposed to be about "fairness" right?
