13-year-old Skyler Davis from Kansas was not only sent to the principal’s office but eventually suspended for carrying a Vera Bradley purse.
The eighth grader has worn the purse to school every day since school started in August but it wasn’t until recently that the administration threw a bitch fit over the bag.
According to his mother, there is nothing in the school handbook regarding accessories.
We’re waiting for the day that people can wear what they want, when they want, regardless of what gender the clothing has been assigned to, and not be harassed for it. Because seriously, who gives a fuck? Why not worry about something that matters and leave the harmless kid with the purse alone.
While we’re on the topic though, let’s just take a second to point out how ridiculous it is that certain types of clothing and accessories have been assigned genders. You do realize that it’s all just pieces of fabric sewn together, right? Fabric is an inanimate object. It cannot have a gender.
So, purses and the like should not be considered “women’s clothing.” I don’t care how hard this would make it for department stores to differentiate where clothing is located. Clothing and accessories does not have a gender, and therefore it shouldn’t matter who wears purses and heels or who wears sneakers and baggy jeans.
