Nelson College for Girls tyro Madi Fulton Buckle wearing her over-the-knee socks.
Long hosiery and kilts – a uniform of a typical high propagandize girl, or a porn star?
After a clergyman done a flitting criticism that over-the-knee hosiery were “creepy porn-video looking”, and shouldn’t be ragged by high schoolers, a Nelson tyro is rebellious “the sexualisation of socks” in a documentary.
Madi Fulton Buckle said times had clearly altered given her mom attended Nelson College for Girls, and prolonged hosiery with knees display were an supposed partial of a uniform.
During a new contention about their uniforms, a group of year 13 girls were astounded to hear they weren’t authorised to wear prolonged socks.

A teacher joked they were “creepy porn-video looking” unless totally lonesome by a skirt.
However, Nelson College for Girls principal Cathy Ewing pronounced a propagandize uniform process per hosiery was not formed on concerns about a passionate image.

She did, however, say young people indispensable superintendence about how what they wore could be interpreted by others.
“We are authorised to wear socks, though we can’t be display any leg between a bottom of a dress and a tip of a sock,” Fulton Buckle said.
They were authorised to wear ankle hosiery in summer, though no other movement on length if a opening of skin could be seen.
They’d been told a banned opening of skin was due to untidiness, but she felt there were undertones of sexualisation, “which a clergyman forked out when she joked about it”.
Fulton Buckle said she felt that making that tie between high schoolers and pornography stereotypes wasn’t right, and she wanted to start a review about how and why over-sexualisation of teenage girls occurs.
She is channelling the lunchroom gibberish into a documentary called Between a Skirt and a Sock, that will shade during a annual Briefs Film Festival hold in Nelson in November.
She interviewed fellow classmates during Nelson College for Girls, as good as a organisation of Nelson College year 12 boys.
“I asked [the boys] if they watched porn and stuff, and if that related to a approach they classify that [knee-high] sock look,” she said.
“One of them says [in a documentary], “if we see a porn star wearing over-the-knee socks, and afterwards see a lady only cruising around in that, we know, we do make that tie in your head.”
However, a girls she interviewed pronounced they shouldn’t be sexualised formed only on their appearance, most reduction their socks.
A tyro tells Fulton Buckle, “sexualisation is a behavioural thing, it depends how we walk, how we talk. Sure if a porn star is on a cover of a porn repository with over-the-knee hosiery on… [she’s not sexual] because she has over a knee hosiery on, it’s since she is a porn star in a cover of a porn magazine.”
Fulton Buckle pronounced her documentary treats a subject lightly and in a humorous way, and didn’t intend to criticize a propagandize for a uniform rules.
She pronounced a indicate was to make people question their thinking, regulating a comparatively tiny emanate of socks, as creation assumptions about a chairman formed on their wardrobe choices was a substructure for bigger issues including rape enlightenment and the objectification of women.
“It’s not fine for it to be sexualised when a chairman isn’t behaving sexual,” Fulton Buckle said.
She pronounced when propagandize staff made comments or gave instructions to “cover up” during propagandize dances or cgange how they dressed, it felt “disempowering”.
“It flattering most puts in bounds and boundary that are environment us adult for a rest of a lives and implying that if we uncover too most skin that can lead to bad things,” she said.
Ewing said: “To capacitate a uniform to be means to be pretty unchanging in how it is worn, all schools set a parameters of what constitutes a scold uniform items.”
The reason a girls were not authorised to uncover any skin between a tip of a hosiery and a dress hem was since a uniform discipline were for tights, or ankle socks.
“Clarification [has been] given that included that they could wear over a knee-high socks as prolonged as they looked like tights – that is a uniform matter for winter.”
“This is a shortcoming of relatives as good as schools. Employers set standards of dress for employees, as do schools for uniforms,” Ewing said.
The Nelson College for Girls winter uniform discipline are:
– Kilt ragged knee length to mid-calf
– School navy jersey with design or propagandize vest
– School black coupler or plain black coupler (not ragged inside)
– School prolonged sleeved blouse tucked in
– School headband (not ragged inside)
– Black tights, white or black ankle socks
– Black leather polishable boots with possibly laces, bend or one effervescent tag (no adornments or ankle boots) – identical to graphic styles
