Angry whatever happened to Individuality?

Does anyone here go to RMC?? It a uniform high school and if you donít your lucky! And I hate you! No not really

Any way here is my little rant:

A few week before school started I dyed my hair a fire red (cuz I wanted to) I didnít think Iíd get spazed at for my hair, I mean its just hair right.

My principle Mr. Hitler (LOL) called me into the office today and began to yell at me about ďthe horrible state I was inĒ (ie: My hair, my piercing and my tats) He told me if he didnít see an improvement in the way I looked heíd kick my out of RMC. I was in tears at the way he was addressing me and felt like I had no say in the way my body looked. it was like I was his robot and I had to do what he said. Once he ran out of rude and mean things to say he called in the VP and they BOTH started to yell at me! I was told I was a disgrace to the hard work of the Catholic school board and that I shouldnít be so ungrateful. I told them that I couldnít dye my hair that I had to wait 7 weeks to have it done again or my hair would get damaged and even turn a different colour. I even told them to call a hair dresser if the didnít believe me. Which they didnít they didnít even listen to me they just said Iím sorry but if the hair doesnít change you will no longer attend RMC!!!

I am in a state of shock, they already control what we wear and what we learn but now they feel the can control our hair and body as well! What ever happened to Individuality? The middleman? I want to be who I am! Not whom they want me to be a mindless drone ready to do theyíre biding!

Iím sorry this is soo not any ones concer but I just needing to write it out Iíd love to hear your thoughts if you have any
Thanks,
Grace

Luv I feel for you, I'm 41 wear sarongs to class, 8 tats, 8 piercings lol. I know here in the states we say religious significance and lawsuit in the same sentence, we get left alone. Are your adornments spiritually significant to you? Not sure how the law works up in igloo land (j/k), but worth a try (course a Catholic school may not be the best place to try this approach if the school has regs allowing discrimination againt non-Catholics)

I know what your going through. I once in my younger days also challenged the statisquo. I even attended a catholic school so i understand all too well the the whole uniform thing, as well as the little things we all tried to do as individuals. Now, from a legal point of view, i believe that the rev may have something here. Not wearing the proper school attire...well you may not have a leg to stand on here, but as far as tats, hair, piercing etc...there is nothing imo that they can really do. I would have my parents make a call to the local school board trustee or even principal Hilter and give them a little shock medicine. Perhaps threaten with a lawsuit, punitive damages is always a good one, seeing how they are basically basing your character on your appearance. If your parents are not willing, let me know, ill call the school for you....ive done this in the past for a couple of friends and its amazing how much fun you can have with these kind of people once you threaten to bring the law, the papers etc into the situation!!!

yep just think of the headlines "Pagan Spiritual beliefs Trampled at Canadian School", "Tatoo Girl wins $11,000,000 lawsuit against Canadian School District (spends $1,000,000 on snakes)", "Canadian schools Ordered By Judge to be Pagan Friendly", (National Inquirer) Canadian Girl, "Aliens Tatooed me!"
We can make quite a spectical lol. Really claiming religious significance (especially if true) is a usually quick end to the situation (at least in the US).

Again i feel a needto express my atheism point!

See i can avoid all of this, (ok its public schools but :P) because i believe religion sets limits on you, which is has obviously seriously affected this mr. hitler, anyways (im not bashing religion or anything) i think this has gone too far, im pretty sure the charter of rights and responsibilities, should let you have your own individuality, but an that must suck, oh well thats why i am public!

I would have to agree with you on religion Canadaherp, it should be kept a personal and private matter and should not interfere or infringe upon others rights, besides one man's truth is another man's mythology as I see it.

i agree with canadian herp too. really i don't see the point of making you change the way u look though. even though it may be a catholic school u should at least be able to express yourself to some point. i think that really sucks and i am sure glad i don't go to a religious school....not trying to diss any one though...

It is sad. However I really feel you do not have a leg to stand on. In private schools they can tell you how to look, and even in some public schools as well. You need to look at the dress code for the school and see what it has to say. If there is a part about hair and apearence you are probally out of luck. If it is not so specific and is written that you cannot be a disruptive influence have them prove to you that you are one. No matter what you have a long fight in front of you.
Good Luck

Any challenge that upsets you is worth the fight never blindly submit to domination, fight the good fight and leave a legacy win or lose. Sheep will never control the world and make it better

At High School level you should be able to comprehend Marx's "Capital", sometime required reading for some college classes. Give it a try, you could be a good radical leader in the making, someone has to change the world, why not you.

Perhaps you need to talk to your parents and see if they back up your opinion on your personal looks. Then you need to have your parents talk to the school about the way you were abused.
Private or Public School there is no right for a faculty member to degrade and abuse you. Next time they call you a name of any kind or use degrading remarks to your appearance you need to be adult with them and tell them to stop. Then Explain to them that this is a professional establishment and they need to act like professional people, Not like a middle school child who feels the need to call names and degrade people for his own place in life.

The trick to getting away with anything now adays is to be more mature and outsmart the people who are making the rules. If you can pull off the fact that your acting more mature about the situation then they are the will automatically feel inferior and lose any standing ground they have. School or no School You also have to be prepared to give demands too. If they start calling you names or if they start degrading you. You have to be ready to walk out of their office and let them know that right away on the grounds that they need to be professional and have valid points, Not opinions. They need to come forth with what rules you have broken and stand on them like a professional not like a 12 year old. That is out right abuse if they make any degrading remarks about it. Legally they will also have to prove you have broken rules to kick you out of the school without risking legal prosecution. Then also can not demand you harm your person IE dying your hair again so soon after you have treated it. If there demands are harmful to you I think you need to seek legal advice and the advice of your parents over what they are doing.

Remember, Be and adult be professional. Even if you are only 14 having a breakdown is what they want to see. They know your going to be irrational and they want you to be.


Fsck the System, beat them at their own game.
