Why Teen-Agers Should Never Be Allowed to Vote

Laura Anderson said the vice-principal at A.B. Lucas called the clothes “inappropriate” and in violation of the school’s dress code

“They just said that what I was wearing was not appropriate for school and that I should not be able to be seen in school until I change,” said Anderson. “I went home and changed into regular jeans and a baggy t-shirt, but felt very sad about the incident and very degraded by the incident.” 

Anderson said she’s not a troublemaker and, at the time, accepted what the vice-principal told her to do.

The Grade 12 student who will be attending Queens University next year for literature, is on student council and said she has respect for the administration at the school. 

“My intention was not for it to be sexual. I don’t put on shorts or tank tops so I get sexual attention from men or other people at my school,” she said. “I put it on because it’s hot outside and I think I have the right as an individual to wear what makes me feel comfortable.”


When I went to school, one wore a uniform. It looked silly but it served a purpose: to eliminate (as much as possible) class barriers and create a singular, clean-cut look. Of course, all the “individuals” wore the same things every out-of-uniform day because they were “sticking to the man” as a group.


If this little princess (like the other little princesses CBC sides with) thinks that her shoddy clothing is the next biggest thing (because no one else has done this before, apparently), ask her to show up a for job interview or a mosque in that very garb.

    Heh….First World problems.

    Meanwhile, thousands of miles away sits a poor 10 year old girl roasting inside a dark foul fistula hut.

  • Clink9

    She’s just painting herself into a corner. The only people that will hire her are fellow assholes.

    But she’s taking English lit so will be hired by the Star or CBC.

      print is on the way out and hopefully we stop funding that communist network soon then she wont have any options.

    Teenager murders someone.
    Media response: ‘Their brains are still developing and they don’t make the most sensible decisions.’

    Teenager wants to re-write their school’s dress code.
    Media response: ‘This teenager has a great idea, let’s hear them out.’

    There was a reason human lived and thrived for eons in tribes led by “elders”.

    • Petey

      And cannon fodder. It had its purpose as well.

  • AmicusC

    im sure some male students would feel more comfortable wearing some form of the mankini but I don’t think this kid would be in favour of letting them where what makes them comfortable to school.

    • Clink9

      So glad my girls had a school uniform. No big fights and they liked them.

      Dress how you want on your own time little snowflakes.

      Nakedness and ice cold beer defeats any discomforting heatwave.
      Don’t teenagers today know anything?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Scotland wants to lower the voting age to 16. I bet mandatory dragon tattoos are the first thing they do.

  • Dana Garcia

    Teens shouldn’t be allowed to drive either. They are a mass of irrational emotions not yet controlled by their incompletely wired brains.

    I heard a brief report on the radio this morning about increased highway deaths for everyone in the summer because the crazy teenagers are out there piloting dangerous machines.

  • Petey

    The little miss needs to be put over a knee and spanked.
    The naughty minx.

    Like others having been a teenager I know that the idea of them making a mature decision such as voting is ridiculous. I would add that the majority of university students are also unqualified to vote; in fact no one should be allowed to vote until they have actually entered the work world and started paying taxes.

  • dukestreet

    She’s fortunate she’s attending school now. The dress code I was required to abide by would give her fits.

  • FactsWillOut

    Teen girls wearing slutty clothes is a non issue.
    What she wears is between her and her parents, and none of the school’s concern, unless some think public schools should co-parent the kiddies?

    Teens voting isn’t the problem, it’s women voting that is the problem.

    • Then she can home-school.

      There are reasons for uniforms and dress codes. Places of work have dress codes.

      Furthermore, Little Miss Crusader isn’t at all unique. This is an easy battle for her in an environment of her peers. Let her try that when something is really on the line.

      • FactsWillOut

        ” Let her try that when something is really on the line.”

        Like her freedom to wear or not wear what she likes, provided it’s not illegal exposure? Hmmm?

        You folks will bitch about burkas, but when a young girl wants to wear an anti-burka, you bitch too.

        Fucking stateist authoritarians make me sick.

    • Clink9

      Schools still have some rules and the little snowflakes are expected to follow them. Go to a different school if they don’t like it.

      • FactsWillOut

        They pay the school tax, they can send their daughter to school in any legal clothing. Period.
        You either let PUBLIC schools co-parent, or you do not.

        • Clink9

          What school does your daughter go to? Does it have any rules?

          • FactsWillOut

            How is that germane?
            The bottom line is, you (like Muslims) don’t like how some others dress, and want the school to “do something” to force your beliefs and so forth on others.

            The parent in question pays school taxes, and is under no obligation to dress their children according to some other guys criteria. Period.
            If you don’t like it, stop paying school taxes and pay for your children’s education yourself, at a private school to your liking.

          • Clink9

            I like and approve of our school’s dress code. So do the majority of other parents and students.

            Some other student doesn’t like it and breaks the rule.

            So now I have to spend $20,000 a year for each of my children at a private school.

            And I have to buy a T shirt that says, I’m A Fucking Statist Authoritarian.

            This sounds like a crappy day.

            You are starting to achieve Mohammedan thought processes, well done.

    All schools in Ontario should be air conditioned if required and run all year. They can use all that windmill power now going to waste. Teachers should also put in a full year’s work for a change and receive their present very generous salary for the next five years without any raises. Teachers who prefer to work the old schedule due to personal circumstances can receive the appropriate fractional portion of a year’s pay for five years, then leave.

  • JoKeR

    I don’t see anything wrong with this. But then I don’t have any daughters.

    • simus1

      Fake tits should be kept under wraps until gravity slowly provides the final finishing touch.

      … she needs more than a few sammiches.

  • no4

    So there are two different Londons, in two different Thames Valley’s?
    What are the chances of a coincidence like that?

  • Gary

    If the voting age was dropped to 5 , the NDP and Liberals would finally get tough on sexual predators that prey on children , but for now Barbara Hall protects the Rights for naked males in PRIDE to break the laws with frontal nudity in public as the Police stand by and allow it while knowing children are around.

  • Edubeat

    (Re: Headline Teenagers & Vote:) Since only 50% of our current citizens and new imports vote b/c they are ‘too busy’ or ‘they forget’ or the ‘had to pee badly’ its not hard to see why Canada is wide open to becoming a nation of no-brainers . Take your citizenship rights for granted and you deserve your leaders the remaining 50% elect.
