'Prey And Predator Day' At High School Sparks Outrage
Originally dubbed “Prey and Predator Day,” the event was changed to just “Camo Day” after the original description caused a stir among Crookston residents. According to Principal Lon Jorgensen, the school’s students did not realize the name’s underlying connotations, adding, “hunting in this area is pretty popular.”
A resident Noyes described the decision as “absurd” and “appalling,” telling the Grand Forks Herald, “Really, in this day and age, you think it's OK to have the mentality of the men as predators and the women as pretty prey?”
In June, Stuyvesant High School students in New York participated in “Slutty Wednesday” -- albeit not as part of any school-sponsored themed dress-up day. Rather, students of the elite New York City public school were protesting its new dress code, which -- among other things -- banned the exposure of midriffs, visible underwear, shoulders and lower backs.
