Bangkok University posts winning dress code notice on Facebook

While some may argue against Bangkok University's strict dress code, nobody can deem it inhibiting with regard to gender. In fact, the school's recent dress code notice posted to the school's Facebook page might just be the most progressive one we've seen.

The post begins with your standard example photos for each gender's attire. The photos show that girls should not wear skirts above the knee and that their white button-down shirts should be tucked into their skirts with a belt.

Boys should wear white button-down shirts tucked into pants (not torn, of course) and a tie. They may not wear sandals.

While dress code notices for most school's would conclude there, Bangkok University's post continues with dress code policies for transgender or gender-neutral students. The post emphasizes that the school is "open about sexual attitude" so long as all students adhere to the regulated dress code.

Essentially, Bangkok University could not care less about controversy surrounding gender identification. They want their students to be happy and confident and to define themselves in any way they see long as their uniforms remain tasteful and appropriate.

The next set of posts in the notice contains photo examples of acceptable attire for a "ladyboy" as well as for a "tomboy." The term "ladyboy" is a bit less familiar to us...but we dig it. The posts suggest that girls are welcome to dress in the typical "boy" attire and vice versa. Talk about a welcoming environment. You go Bangkok University!

Of course, what progressive and open-minded Facebook post would end without a signature smiley face? Not this one! The notice concludes with a smiley emoticon to add emphasis to the school's acceptance of all gender identifications.

With so many students battling school dress codes for being too "sexist" today, students probably wish their policies could be as accepting as Bangkok University's:
