Cambridgeshire schoolboy wears skirt in protest
« on: May 16, 2011, 06:16:43 PM »
A Cambridgeshire boy wore a skirt to school in a protest against what he said was "discrimination".

Chris Whitehead, 12, was angered by rules at Impington Village College, near Cambridge, that do not allow boys to wear shorts in hot weather...

I think I like him.

Wore a skirt to high school, when they instituted an "apophatic" dress code.

Said nothing about skirts and dresses for boys.
