    See? You are disagreed with, and you start acting all authoritarian and uptight.

    Losen up, Pogo.

    It could be both yanno.

    First several years I went to Catholic school with its bullshit fake ties and the girls in their bullshit mandatory uniforms. I eventually escaped and nobody else in the family was condemned to that shit again after that point. For my entire life I have referred to that establishment as "the prison". Because that's exactly what it was.

    Then in my professional career for years I was expected to wear a monkey suit. My protest statements were of necessity limited to creative tie patterns for which I got notorious. That too faded into the past with the eventual social rebellion against the mandatory conformity thing, and now I wear what I want and it's one hell of a lot more practical in a job that requires physical exertion.

    I don't miss either of those nightmares in the slightest. Good riddance. The idea that one has to dress/act/speak a certain way only for somebody else's jollies is repugnant.

    I ain't the one telling people what to wear, now am I.

    It's curious, Jake, that you purport to put up an objective poll, call for honest objective responses, and then want to change votes you don't like. So much for objective.

    Yes. Male instructors should be wearing slacks, non-athletic shoes, and a collared shirt with full sleeves. Female instructors should be wear g a sleeved dress or blouse and skirt. Either way the hem must be mid-shin or lower and sleeves should be full length. The cut of the blouse/dresss top should not expose any significant cleavage.

    Teachers should dress like authority figures. No one is going to respect them if they dress like the kids

    Yup, you are authoritarian and not honest, either.

    You have an opinion, like we all do.

    You express your opinion, like we all do.

    You disagree, which is your right.

    But when I disagree, I am being a bully.

    Grow up and act like an adult.

    You disagree with me: I can live with you. And so should you.
