A Florida high school is surprised to find female yearbook photos "digitally altered" to cover shoulders and cleavage. The male swim team's Speedos? Not so much.
May 25, 2021

Bartram Trail High School, located in the majority white, majority Republican St. John's County Florida, has a problem.

They suck at Photoshop.

They also don't understand gender politics or body image issues among teenage girls.

Ann Irwin, the yearbook coordinator and language arts teacher, supervised the "digital alteration" of yearbook photos of 80 female students.

The results were ugly and absurd.

One mother (in the video above) noted that her daughter had been hospitalized in the past due to body issues. This sham prudery is NOT helpful, Bartram Trail.

The photos of the boy's swim team in Speedos was not altered for the yearbook.

I suggest a new yearbook adviser, one who isn't focused quite so much on teen boobies.

Can you help us out?
