Cute College Sophomore Kicked Out Of School Gym For ‘Crop Top’

Sarah Villafañe, a 19-year-old sophomore at the College of Charleston, is rightfully upset after school staff members booted her from the campus gym for wearing a crop top and insisting that she needs “full coverage” while exercising. Denying her access to the gym for wearing a completely reasonable workout outfit is one thing, but denying all the chance to catch a glimpse of this cutie on the stair master is a travesty.

What Happened?

Sarah Villafañe described the event in a lengthy Facebook post (it’s a well deserved rant) and shared a photo of the outfit she wore to the gym. Check it out.

The post has since gone viral and it’s easy to see why. This is a crime against humanity. For shame, College of Charleston, for shame.

The dress code at the George Street Fitness Center states that gym-goers must wear “athletic attire,” which includes T-shirts, running shoes, sneakers, shorts or pants, according to The Post and Courier. But, dude, c’mon…I saw worse dress code violations at my senior prom.

College of Charleston spokesman Mike Robertson, who seems like a very repressed individual, told the newspaper that the rules and dress code at the fitness center are posted on a bulletin board located near the front door. But neither the rules nor the dress code specifically address midriff-exposing shirts…ipso facto, the school is full of it.

Robertson explained (read: dodged the issue) that the rule about wearing a T-shirt is aimed at reducing the skin’s contact with gym equipment for “sanitary reasons.” He added that it applies equally to both men and women.

In an update to her post on Facebook, Villafañe wrote: “The gym has since said that they kicked me out for ‘sanitary concerns.’ However, they never made those sanitary concerns clear when they asked me to change.

“They told me I need ‘more coverage’ and nothing more. Not to mention, their website has no written dress code anyway.

“The dress code at the front of the gym simply says ‘Athletic wear must be worn.’ I would say that what I’m wearing (whether you believe it’s a sports bra or a crop top) is completely normal and considered athletic wear.”

In an interview with TODAY, she said there’s a double standard when it comes to attire at the school gym.

“Many people have told me that they have seen girls wearing similar outfits to mine in the CofC gym, as well as men wearing muscle tees that expose their midriffs,” she said.

“It is interesting to me that the men I have seen wearing jeans in the gym (a quite obvious violation of their one dress code rule, ‘Athletic attire must be worn’) were not bothered or kicked out for not abiding by the dress code rules.”

Right on, Villafañe. Stick it to The Man. Also, can I have your number?
