What? Sing Sing or Alcatraz wouldn’t take her?
got your passport, Peppermint Patty, in order to go to London?
Good for you PP – civil disobedience!
We had a dress code, in the first year of college…IN COLLEGE! We rebelled, three of us, from a batch of 250 students, and defied the dress code. Eventually, we prevailed when the principal stepped down and the dress code was withdrawn.
I love Peanuts/charlie brown but why is it set up differently to all the other comic strips?I have bookmarks to the three or four other strips that I read regularly, and a single click shows the daily strip.Peanuts for some reason is set so that you have to click a second time to see the cartoon in full – why is this ?
The long and lonely walk to the Principal’s chamber…
I like her decision.
Alors, let us storm le Bastille to rescue Ma’m’selle Patty!
If PP can’t handle the minor disciplinary rule of a dress in elementary school, how will she handle the mountain of rules/regulations she will face as an adult? A little discipline never hurt anyone .. “Spare the rod & spoil the child!”
Who said “Rules are for schmucks?”
Learn to pick your battles PP. I learned this as a parent when one of my sons decided to wear his hair long (it was not as fashionable back then). Compared to the other things he could have done, this was not worth fighting over. Nor did it last long. He also played football. The first time he was tackled by the hair, it was a trip to the barber shop.
Sometimes, there’s a reason for a dress code – I never wore sandals to school not because I didn’t like them (or because of a dress code), but because in the daily stampedes, people with open-toed shoes tended to become targets for stompings from big kids with cleats.
That said, sudden stricter dress codes are often horrible for poorer kids who suddenly learn that they can only wear maybe a quarter of their wardrobe on a daily basis, and if they can’t get those clothes laundered constantly (and furthermore, eventually replaced), they quickly start to smell like a target.
I remember in the early 1970s when my high school instituted a rule saying that all boys had to wear button-down shirts and tuck them in to their pants. One boy protested by wearing a dress. Didn’t change the rule.
Good for you PP!
Marcie seems noticeably absent from this story arc, since she is the same class and doesn’t wear dresses either.
You go, girl! That assertiveness will serve you well later.
Just another good strip from Schulz that’s all….
My Catholic high school had a strict dress code. Now, I have a persistent fetish for tight white blouses and tartan skirts. Mostly on women.
From where I live I pass my old high school often. Once in a while…long long while I will see a girl wearing a dress or top and skirt…How refreshing and do they know how nice they look…Not like some overstuffed sausages in poor fitting pants….Get with it ladies….
Had a story on Etiquette Hell where a girl protested the high school dress code by wearing a backless sundress. She claimed the dress code for girls was about making them cover up allegedly to prevent guys from harassing them rather than teach the guys NOT to disrespect the girls. It was like “Boys will be boys,” so it’s the girls fault if she shows too much skin and gets groped or subjected to crude remarks.
You are doing the right thing Patty
I believe in a dress code especially for children but making girls where dresses and the boys pants is sexist. I think the boys should wear kilts. Then everybody would be trying to check out each others underwear with their black patent leather shoes.
