    I don't agree with this proposal (you probably don't either), but honestly I can see the logic in it if you view obscene child obesity as a form of severe parental neglect

    Kids shouldn't be fat, IMHO. I'm not talking a little chubby because they're about to go through a growth spurt. Or because they have health condition, poor wee mites. I'm talking about so big they CAN'T do the normal stuff that kids do. What is wrong with some parents today? You can't feed your kids crap all the time, and expect them to be healthy. And take them out to sport and stuff, or even just to the freakin' park, so they run around. This is going to age me a bit, but I remember days where me and a bunch of friends would go exploring our neighborhood. No adults, and we just be kids for hours on end. We'd go exploring paddocks, go on mad bike rides. Explore half the town. We'd do jump rope, and playstupid ball games. Now parents are so terrified of injury and bad things happening, the kids spend much of their time at home in front of the T.V or computer, and they don't get to burn of energy the way kids used to. It makes me sad. Fat kids are beyond cruel. Especially if they are under a certain age. Seriously they being set up for life time of pain, misery and early death.

    School uniforms are the norm here so I don't see what the big deal is. Kids don't get to wear what they want? Welcome to my childhood.

    there are no national standards for almost anything education related in North America. In nyc most of the schools have a strict dress code, for example. but some schools have barely any bit of a policy about what to wear... and i had a uniform until high school so i dont see a big deal. they'll get used to it, there are lots of studies promoting the use of school uniforms for primary and secondary schooling in terms of its positive influence on student behavior

    When I was in college, I had two or three pairs...one black, one hot pink...I think I may have had some orange ones at some point, but those were just too much.

    They're like a more comfortable and supportive version of flip-flops, which I love to wear. I own several pairs of heels, but I'm typically running around in bare feet, flip flops or running shoes.

    I think it's because I was in WV and with the colder weather flip-flops weren't as smart of an option, and I could even wear crocs with socks.

    Okay, I can see that for sure. But doesn't this only apply to minors while on public school grounds? The government OWNS public schools...which is why I advocate they create a law around public schools to also prevent things like coke machines and snack machines from being set up there to prevent childhood obesity.

    NOW...if the government tries to interfere with what people do on their own time, as adults, or on private property (like how in CA they're trying to limit how many people you can have living in your house, and they can't and they'd better not), then that is a problem.

    I'm not a communist by any means, fuck the police, but seriously public schools do have a right to enforce dress codes and nutrition programs, which are totally reasonable.

    I do. I view it as child abuse past a certain point. These are REALLY EXTREME cases, too...like one girl was 12 and weighed 400 pounds. That kid could die young from that, that's a ridiculous amount of weight for an adult, let alone an adolescent.
