High school graduation comes with a whole bunch of considerations: Where are you going for college (and how the heck are you going to pay for it)? And what鈥檚 a senior picture pose you鈥檒l look back on and not regret?

The perfect yearbook quote can be equally as hard to come up with, what with all the inside jokes and meaningful moments you want to preserve. One grad, however, used it as an opportunity to make a statement against her school鈥檚 sexist dress code, pulling off the ultimate end-of-year mic drop in the process.

Victoria DiPaolo has spent much of the last four years at New Jersey鈥檚 West Milford High School fighting the dress code, which she describes to Yahoo Style in no uncertain terms as sexist and unreasonable. She says her and many of her friends received dress code violations over the years for 鈥渃lothes that were nowhere near inappropriate,鈥 describing a visible bra strap or a quarter-inch of midriff as the offending looks. When she saw that the outfits supplied for senior portraits consisted of an off-the-shoulder shirt 鈥 which could qualify as a dress code violation 鈥 she ran with the opportunity to point out the hypocrisy and leave a lasting message for the school.

The (perfect, TBH) quote reads: 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, did my shoulders distract you from reading this quote?鈥 After her friends started sharing it on social media, more and more people took notice, and DiPaolo says that even members of the school鈥檚 administration thought it was funny.

鈥淢ost teachers have laughed at it,鈥 she said in the interview. 鈥淭he general consensus at my school 鈥 unless you鈥檙e the principal 鈥 is that the dress code is ridiculous so people have loved the quote so far.鈥

On the school鈥檚 website, the official policy states that 鈥淗alters, half-shirts, shorts, or sweaters and blouses that expose breasts or stomachs may not be worn. Shorts and skirts should not be a distraction. They should not be above the extended fingertips. Muscle shirts, mesh shirts, and loose-fitting tank tops are not permitted. Patches, decals, or sayings affixed to clothing are inappropriate if they are suggestive, drug-related, obscene in nature, or cause a disruption in normal proceedings.鈥

DiPaolo, who gets good grades and is involved in many extracurriculars, says that her academic performance should be the focus 鈥 not what she鈥檚 wearing.

鈥淚鈥檝e spent hours sitting in principal鈥檚 offices because 40-year-old men were offended by my back showing. They would tell me to change or go home, so my classic response was 鈥楬ow much of my skin is exposed when it鈥檚 90 degrees out is more important than me receiving an education at a school? Okay.鈥欌

With all the attention her yearbook quote has gotten, DePaolo joked on Twitter that she wishes she鈥檇 retaken her picture, but honestly, as long as the quote stands, you do you, DiPaolo.
