Emo Pants Banned at Hoover High School?
I have recently become fascinated by the Emo pants trend. I found a great site called Urban Dictionary that gives a few notable definitions on what Emo pants are.
Here is a particularly good definition.
A style of jeans usually worn by emo boys. They are skin tight, occasionally distressed, and found in the girls department of most stores. Worn with converse all stars, black and white specs, and a black tshirt, they complete the classic emo look.
Emoguy 1: Check out my new jeans!
Emoguy 2: Dude, those are the best emo pants.
Emoguy 1: yEah, I saw Taking Back Sunday with 'em on.
Emogirlfriend: Hey, are those my pants?!
So now that we are on the same page. I was told today by a co-worker that her son attends Hoover High. He is a fan of the Emo look. She was told the principal had recently outlawed Emo pants. She stated that the principal was banning guys from wearing girls pants.
Here is the link to Hoover's dress code if you want to check it out. Http://www. hoover.fresno.k12.ca.us/mod.php?mod=userpage&menu=1803&page_id=27. I checked but I can't find any mention of banning these pants. I'm curious how they would word the ban. Are they going to ban tight pants? They already have rules agianst saggy pants. Or are they really going to ban guys wearing girl pant?
While I find the Emo pant trend silly I can't support a school determining what gender of pants one can wear.
