People don't wear clothes for other people. They wear them for themselves because they are comfortable. And if they are wearing them for someone else, is it really your business? So if you are comfortable in shorter shorts, you should be able to wear them without being judged. And if you are comfortable in clothes that don't show as much skin, then you should be able to wear that- WITHOUT BEING JUDGED. I tend to wear longer shorts, so people seem to think that I'm not a "girl". And implying that people who show skin are sluts is (a) not true, a "slut" is someone who sleeps around (which is none of your business anyways) and (b) encourages the slut-good girl dichotomy which just promotes rape culture. If people believe that someone is a "slut" and gets raped, they'll just think that's what's deserved. It just creates more lines between people and (guess what?) OTHER PEOPLE, that don't exist.

And then there's the fact that the dress code is there so boys wont be "distracted". First of all, the minute boys leave the school they will see girls wearing provocative clothing. They might as well learn to "control" themselves. Not to mention that it's very degrading to say they can't control themselves and that they are slaves to their sex drive. Which combined with the fact that it tells girls that they must cover up, really doesnt help anyone.

I don't mean to say that everyone must dress in short shorts. That people should neverdress modestly. My point is that people should be able to wear whatever they want with being judged or ostracized. That it should be a right.

This is really un excusable.

His first argument that girls can wear what they want without being judged is one that we can come to agreement on. However, people shall always judge my friend.

Your second argument says there should not be a dress code for school because boys will see the things afterwords anyways. Actually, it is meant to be a rule that clearly states during the school day that it is wrong. After school is not relevant to that rule at all.

They can wear what they want, but they will still be judged.

In most cases the reason girls wear short clothing is to be provocative. Yes, you might be judged. Unfortunately everyone is judged, that's just the way it is. Also I highly doubt some girls find short clothing comfortable because short clothing is not comfortable.

I'll debate this if you wouldn't mind giving a specific resolution. ie The motivation for ones choices in clothing is personal preference, or something similar.

Reasons for voting decision: It's difficult to figure out the resolution being debated. Pro contracts the title in the opening statement. Pro finally says, "people should be able to wear whatever they want with[out] being judged or ostracized." The school context is implied. Con then agrees with Pro on that point, saying "They can wear what they want, ..." Whether people judge or not seems aside from the point of "should" be allowed. Con correctly says dress codes only apply during the school day, but Pro already acknowledged. He should have argued why more decorum is appropriate during the school. In his zeal to cash in on the plagiarism, he argued poorly and granted too much. Plagiarism loses the conduct point, but the arguments presented still have to be properly refuted. In a school assignment copying is fatal, but in a debate the arguments are the main thing, not where they came from.
