Sexism has, once again, reared its ugly head as a Georgia educator has been subjected to online criticism for the clothing she wears in the classroom.
Under the hashtag #teacherbae, many Twitter users were complaining that Brown's outfits were “inappropriate” on school grounds, while others chimed in to defend the teacher’s clothing choices.
Women hating on #Teacherbae now but later this week they'll be out here saying "Stop sexualizing women!!"— Brock Party 1-0 (@Super_Stud2100) September 12, 2016

“I just wish they would respect me and focus on the positive and what truly matters, which is educating the children of the future generations and providing and caring for them,” Brown reportedly told The Daily Dot.
Her employer is not bothered by her work attire. It’s a shame that this woman is being harassed because of what she wears. As long as she isn’t wearing see-through clothing, there shouldn’t be an issue with her outfits.
What a woman wears is her own prerogative, and people who are chiming in are simply sexist internet trolls that have nothing else better to do with their time.
