Teenage boys at Isca Academy in Exeter in Devon, England requested to wear shorts in the face of the current heat wave. Something that the headmaster of their school reportedly refused to acquiesce to, maintaining that all boys needed to wear pants, regardless of the heat.
So the boys decided to do something that a lot of men who aren't being allowed to wear shorts in "professional" environments are doing: they started rocking skirts.
Twitter got wind of the news, and people were all about the skirt-wearing protest.
Some also applauded that the protest was more about a "practical" reaction to a "stupid" dress code.
Others, however, weren't too fond of the initiative and think they'd do better to "tow the line."
Others had reactions to that.
How much energy do UK schools waste enforcing uniform policies that other countries manage quite well without?— Richard Hussey (@RichardHussey1) June 22, 2017
Do you think this is a good way to beat the heat?
