High School`s Female Yearbook Photos Altered [Pic]


Female students at a Utah high school were baffled when they opened their yearbooks this week to see their images had been altered to show less skin.

Sleeves were added and tops were digitally raised in several photos of girls at Wasatch High School. The students are now protesting the edits, which were made without warning and seemingly at random. I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who, Sophomore Rachel Russeltold Fox 13. There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didnt.

That accusation holds up. Heres a side-by-side comparison of two Wasatch students wearing nearly identical outfits. Sleeves were added to the photo on the right:


District superintendent Terry E. Schoemaker has so far offered a non-apology,telling Fox 13that the schools only mistake was not being more consistent with the edits. We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we”re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,

Here are some of the images that were altered, courtesy ofMyFox8:





…Because of what, IAG? Why do you think?

    The second image, right under the video, is of two different people. They explained in the video that the two girls were wearing the same outfit. One was altered and the other wasn`t.

    IAG? i assume you meant iab, but lets have fun with it. i-am-god? i knew it! ive denied the signs for too long. i-am-gullible, did you guys hear about the aussie who befriended a great white? i-am-great? damn straight! i-am-gold? its what came up when i googled iag. oh yeah, so this comment isnt completely irrelevant, why are these people complaining? they look much better after theyve been edited. i wish they had done that for my yearbook photos. i always had a bad hair day on picture day.

    Well it`s not affecting me so I`m struggling to oome up with some indignation...but it does affect the kids that are complaining, so good on them for at least attempting to challenge it.

    While I find it bizarre that anyone in our culture is offended by a girl`s shoulder (exactly like in Iran, when they draw T-Shirts onto women with bare shoulders on TV shows), they`ve been doing this forever. I graduated high school in 1991. For our senior class picture, a couple of (white) guys thought it would be funny to wear big plastic clocks around their necks like Flava Flav of Public Enemy. The school thought they were gang related and blacked them out of the picture with a marker. Oh well. The school is free to publish or not publish whatever they see fit, and if they think the sight of a girl`s shoulder is inappropriate, well, remind me never to move to Utah. They`ve got some weird beliefs around there.

    We didn`t have yearbooks over here at the time I left school. The trend at the time was to get all your mates to sign their names on your school uniform on the last day of school.

    Me and a friend did all that but then stripped off just outside the school gates just after the bell had gone and just torched all our uniform. Thank drat camera phones hadn`t been invented then.

    as long as she`s not showing nips, then they should leave the pics as they were originally taken. after all, how can you laugh at funny yearbook pics (in the future) if some tight-ass has altered them today?

    The ones with the denim jacket aren`t the same girl. Although they look pretty much alike, it`s obvious it`s not the same jacket or girl.

    To me it`s just more of the same. We (men) get offended with #YesAllWomen, yet, note that no boy`s photos were altered here. And I`m not saying they should have been, I`m just saying, the subtle sexism is so ingrained as to seem almost normal. And so, yeah, it`s high time we talk about it as a society, IMHO, and try to do something about it. It certainly isn`t going to hurt anyone to try. :-)

    The second image IS OF two different women! It said so in the article too.
    It`s an example of how some pics were, or were not edited. Not the same girl`s pic (which the rest of them are).

    @Patchouly mentions this in the first comment :-) But we can`t see that when the page is open, eh?
