Safe to say, she doesn't hold back...
Dress codes in schools have been called into question several times...

In recent years, students have been calling out their schools for this specific reason.Especially when male teachers will send a girl out of class for violating the dress code.
The reasons they offer for this can be extremely problematic.Including the fact that certain outfits may be "distracting" to male students in the class.
While in recent years, more students are calling out this kind of sexism...
It's rarely met with support from schools.
so schools can’t force students to wear a mask... but they can force girls to cover up when they wear a spaghetti strap tank top??? ok.— jocelyn vlores (@jocelyn vlores)1594785147.0
Well, this week, a TikToker has gone viral for delivering some home truths about the blatant sexism in schools.
via: Getty ImagesAnd she doesn't hold back...
For those of you that don’t know...
via: ShutterstockTikTok is an iOS and Android app made for creating and sharing short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.
And within a few years, it has become one of the world's best-loved apps.While we’re all stuck inside because of the pandemic, many have taken to Tik Tok in order to keep themselves entertained.
It's given us some pretty hilarious trends.From The Doja Cat Challenge to the Fake FaceTime Call, we just can't seem to get enough.
And it's also helped artists go viral too.
Some trends have not been so great...Even though some of its viral trends, such as The Skull Breaker Challenge, have been hailed as stupid or dangerous, others have provided us with hours upon hours of quality entertainment.
But, TikTok has also been used for a very different reason...
via: ShutterstockSeveral users have been using the app as a platform to shed light on important issues such as racism, sexism, and homophobia.
And that's exactly what Nicole Ciravolo is doing.
Nicole says she was inspired to make these videos after spending thirteen years at a private Christian school.BuzzFeed: "We had uniforms, yet girls were constantly being dress-coded for skirt length (or often in my case, not wearing a bra — even though that's not in the dress code)."
But one of her videos, in particular, has really got people talking.
The TikTok starts by pointing out how ridiculous it is that a girl was called out of class for "violating" a dress code.
via: TikTokIn the clip, the girl has been sent out for being disruptive to male students' learning.
But Nicole points out a very blatant fact.
via: TikTokIn reality, the only disruption to learning was happening to her, as she was now missing class.
Nicole draws on her own experiences in school.
And if none of those skirts fit...
In another of her videos, Nicole points out that it's extremely hot outside, and that she'd be wearing a tank top too.
via: TikTokApparently, a girl in a tank top is more "distracting" than being too hot due to the weather. This kind of thing blatantly prioritizes boys' learning over girls.
Nicole also says how it's often male teachers who call girls out.
via: TikTok"There's nothing more disheartening than feeling sexualized by a male teacher and not having any female faculty defend you. So I wanted to create a character — sort of the wish-fulfillment hero I needed in high school — to show people how those experiences could have happened if they actually had someone in their corner."
Nicole continued the series with a phone call with the teacher...
via: TikTokWhere she goes on to call him out for referring to an underage girl as a "hooker." "You are there to teach her, not humiliate her. And if you keep calling me sweetheart we're gonna have a much bigger problem!"
She goes on to say it's pretty creepy that he called her out in the first place...
via: TikTokWhile also pointing out the double standard of male teachers calling out only female students for dress code violations. At Nicole's school, she says boys were rarely called out, especially when it came to athletes: "They could show up to school completely out of uniform all day and not hear a word."
