Skanky Dressed Teens Are Canada’s Latest Victim Group According To The CBC

Ontario principal advised students not to dress ‘skanky’

A high school principal from Guelph, Ont., says he was simply trying to send a “strong message” about dressing appropriately when he used the word “skanky” to describe what type of style students should be avoiding.

Scot Bishop, the principal of Centennial Collegiate Vocational Institute, reportedly used the word during a public address last week.

Student Brittany Harlick says that it was hard to believe the words coming out of the principal’s mouth last Friday.

“At first, many of us thought we had heard him wrong because it was fairly shocking,” she told CBC News in an interview.

“He said to … dress cool, not skanky.”

The word skanky means “unattractive or disgusting,” or that’s the way it is defined in the online version of the Canadian Oxford Dictionary.

    Whining parents pass the kleenex down to their children.
    Thankfully it sounds as if, there are some students not ‘traumatized’ by the remarks.

    • Good on them.

    • More and better bureaucrats are needed to assure no-one’s feeling will be hurt.

      Hire some more government employees, please.

    And of course, the CBC is more concerned that students know why Egbert has 4 mommies, why Bush=Hitler, and why gender is a social construct.
    How about just teaching the damn kids to read? Basic numeracy would be nice too! Mind you, most of those liberal union slobs can’t do math either so I guess one might be asking too much…

    • The CBC is so Skanky.

      • David Murrell

        Actually, you hit upon something. Did you every see some live news conference in political Ottawa, and then see some CBC cameraman dressed in scruffy jeans taking live shots? Pretty bad, and they are overpaid, unionized workers to boot.

      • WalterBannon

        hey, stop insulting skanks

    • ProgNorth

      Speaking of ‘Egbert has 4 mommies’. My 2 high school children have been inundated with pro-gay propaganda around their school this week, topped off today with some sort of ‘rainbow assembly’.
      My son has chosen to stay home, until said assembly is over and my daughter will be skipping the event ( with our blessing of course ) and going to a friends house, for the period.
      Proud parent indeed!

    Here we go. Young “Britany,” experiencing the head rush of media exposure and inflated self importance will inevitably thirst for more… another attention seeking grievance whining career is born.

    • Bingo.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Unless her peers decide she is not ready for prime time. Personally, I think Brittany and her friends have not progressed beyond the “hamster wheel phase” of cognitive development.

  • kkruger71

    I know it can be said for a lot of the media, but this is a prime example of “How is this even considered news?!”

    • That was my thought as well. I suppose it supports rape culture or somethin.

      • WalterBannon

        rape culture, is that when Pakistani cabbies move in next door and start grooming the local children???

        • Justin St.Denis

          No, you are referring to the “benefits of multicultural enrichment and diversity”.

  • Ghost of Ed

    Let’s just keep building the victim society.

  • moraywatson

    The principal should have told the students not to dress like trollops and slatterns. That would have shut them up for 10 seconds while they scurried for their dictionaries.

    • Dictionaries?

      That’s what teen-agers would have asked because, you know, teen-agers.

    • Justin St.Denis

      The words “sluts, call girls and/or prostitues” were crossing my mind as an alternative to “skanky”.

  • Solo712

    Suffice it to say that it was a male (in position of authority) who said something unkind of the other gender. Outraged guaranteed !

  • Hard Little Machine

    In the US I really can’t understand why men even pursue teaching as a profession anymore. Odds are he’ll eventually be accused of something sexual, misogynistic or molest-y. Why bother?

    • ntt1

      They aren’t our kids had only two male teachers from kindergarten to grade 8. The result is little boys being disiplined for Not acting like little girls

      • Clink9

        Our girls only had one male teacher in those years. Lucky for them he was an old school jock and joke around guy and not some fembot cyborg.

  • J. C.

    Boys and girls should have separate schools, IMO… Studies show that boys and girls learn in different ways, so a ‘one-size-fits-all’ curriculum does no one any good (especially a PC laden curriculum). It would certainly help to alleviate all this ‘sexist’ bullsh*t, as well…

  • c w

    Old whores come from young whores. He might have been pointing that out, and good for him.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I’ve noticed the same thing.

  • Gaylord Ponce

    I posted this comment on CBC. “Everybody knows that skanks are just looking for it.”
    The post was deleted immediately.
    Any time I can upset the moderators is a good day for me.

    • David Murrell

      The reason the corrupt CBC News has web moderators (paid at a good salary) is to enforce CBC standards of one-sided opinion. That is, CBC News only permits “I agree with you” posts. To do otherwise would introduce the strange, foreign idea of different points of view to a controversial subject.

      The CBC is a dominant player in a rigged, corruptly-managed media oligopoly. This is why CBC News flouts normal, decent journalistic practices.

      • Justin St.Denis

        And why so very few watch it, and so very many want it de-funded and/or privatized.

  • cmh

    when your vagina hangs down farther than your shorts you are skanky slut

    • ProgNorth


    • Justin St.Denis

      “Camel-toe” tight pants look skanky.

  • Okay, where are the parent (s)?

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    Every decade or century,everything changes,music,dressing styles,customs,etc,we just have to accept peoples ideas,except destructive acts.

    • Justin St.Denis

      This may be true of your home planet, Maurixio, but here on Earth, slutty and skanky women transcend time and fashion.

      • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

        You didnt get right crack head.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Ummm…okay, Maurixio. One participation ribbon for you, too.

          Happy now?

  • Justin St.Denis

    Since when do Brittany Harlick and her teenaged friends get to define what is “shocking” and what isn’t? poor Brittany and her pals are NOT ready for real time in meatspace yet. Indeed, it could be argued that they need to buckle down and learn English, too.
