Teen slams hypocritical school dress code in the perfect senior quote
High school senior Tori DiPaolo is now a hero on Twitter for using her senior quote to fight sexism.
DiPaolo’s school, West Milford High in New Jersey, bans girls from wearing shoulder baring tops on most days, but the robes required for senior photos happen to show a whole lot of … wait for it … shoulder.
DiPaolo called attention to this blatant contradiction with a self-quote: “I’m sorry, did my shoulders distract you from reading this quote?”
Let’s just say Twitter was here for it.
You are an awesome young lady with the world at your fingertips. Never settle and don’t let the system box you in. GL

It really is the perfect quote coming from someone who describes themselves as infamous for fighting their school’s dress code double standards.
DiPaolo finds that her school unfairly applies the dress code to girls but not boys.
“My school’s dress code prohibits boys from wearing muscle shirts,” DiPaolo told the Huffington Post. “But they do all the time and don’t get in trouble yet, when my bra strap accidentally slips I have to miss class time to go change.”
A+ trolling, Tori. Calling out sexism with honors.
