A high school student posted this image on her Facebook page in outrage over her schools graduation dress code guidelines directed specifically toward female students. The detail of expectations and focus on shaming of female students into covering their bodies, particularly if they have any weight related imperfections ("sausage rolls") compared to the much more relaxed guidelines directed toward the "gentlemen" is what some people find so upsetting. The school district has made a response to lament the "unfortunate word choices" that were written in the letter drafted by a long since retired author. 

Most graduates put on the cap and gown at some point to celebrate their accomplishments and receive their diploma. A lucky few get to decorate their cap to add some individuality to this ceremonial uniform.

For those of us who were not allowed to decorate, be prepared to live vicariously through these clever graduates. Here is a list of some of the brightest caps to come out of 2015.
