In the past few months, schools have banned everything from yoga pants and Ugg boots to birthday candles and peanut butter sandwiches. But one Utah middle school is cracking down on hair color—even if the color in question isn't a garish blue or green but just a dark shade of red.


This is definitely extreme.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Ya know... I can understand some restrictions... But your auburn kind of looks like it has some odd highlights in certain light? Give me a break.

There is nothing unnatural about her hair colour...apart from the fact that it is not her natural colour! but its not an odd colour or a human head.
I can understand if it was blue or green, there are rules in schools and if they can wear their hair any colour they like they will want the same with clothes and what they carry. certain things do need to be adhered to.
But that young lady has done nothing wrong, I just hope someone so young does not do it too often or she could end up looking like this:

Power corrupts - absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Some people relish the idea they have absolute power over others even down to judging them and finding them guilty of being lessor because of their hair colour.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I guess this man can prove that hair colour does not affect the power you can have, no matter how many times you dye it:

Stupid to the max.

Oddly, her haircolor is close to my natural haircolor. I call prejudice against reds!

Don't tell me High schools have the "let's bully gingers" complex normally associated with elementary schools. It's childish to attack each other over the color of hair by taunting or teasing. South Park did an episode on "ginger bullying" involving a prank by the boys to turn Eric Cartman to a ginger, so he learns the lesson what it's like to be bullied for his appearance.

IMO, auburn hair isn't the same like blue or green or pink hair. I mean, c'mon, that Utah public school thought she dyed her hair in an unnatural color hue? That's incredibly horrible and abrasive to penalize her for it...not about tolerance, but enforcing an oddity of a rule which should be revised and voted out of the school rulebook.

Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:20 PM

That's beyond messed up . the captain of my EMS station used to mess with me for stuff like this ,so I would mess back....
.  
He used to give me grief if my hair wasn't above my collar on duty .
He was a giant ass . No one liked him ,and he was a male chauvinist.

I had it in a pony tail . Then he would b**** about my jewelry .
Needless to say he left alone the guys with pony tails ,and girls of different ethnicity ,who didnt even do a pony tail  and wore huge earrings and chains ,on duty .

I started taking pictures of everyone .
I also would come in in kabuki white face and red lipstick ,with my hair up ,with glitter gel .
He would say,that look is a bit harsh ! So I would say,Yeh ,but my hair is above my collar.
I would wash it all off once we went out on the truck .

He finally gave me a command discipline for all of it,including hanging my keys and O2 wrench on my belt .
I said ,that's not even in the protocol book .So he says, ..doesn't mean its right .

So I refused to sign any of it ,and asked for a meeting with the chief .
I met with the Chief,and spread all the photos ,dozens of them,of other members of the station,with hair down ,jewelry on,and even keys on belts .
I said ,feel free to command discipline me,but an EEOC lawyer will make mince meat of the charges .

Oddly ,it all went away,and was never mentioned again .

They should get a lawyer ,switch schools. I would .Just to make an example of them .
