The internet has once again been broken.. this time by Oksana Nevelselaya, the world’s hottest math teacher. Her Instagram account quickly climbed to 500,000 followers when a video of her teaching on a tight grey dress started making the rounds.
She’s not the first teacher to receive attention for her looks. We will all likely remember the Beyonce look-a-like who was reprimanded by her school last month for wearing ‘inappropriate’ clothing to school and distracting young male students (the truth is she was merely attractive and curvy.. one of the outfits she was reprimanded for was a t shirt and jeans… pretty basic but she made it look good).
So are there special rules for teachers? Are they not allowed to be sexy? Nevelselaya was certainly doing nothing wrong in the classroom. There have been no allegations that either of these women were in violation of dress codes for the workplace. She was wearing a perfectly acceptable dress.. slightly tight but not revealing at all. I suspect what set off the sensation was that she is absolutely gorgeous and her Instagram feed is full or provocative photos — all taken on her own time. Similarly, ‘TeacherBae’ was clearly a sexy lady but there is no evidence she was behaving inappropriately toward her students.
Both of these women are being singled out and given negative attention because their wardrobe choice (and their looks) have been opened to the court of public (opinion) and everyone feels they have a stake in how these women present themselves in the classroom. And I don’t like it. Teacher Bae would never have been reprimanded if millions of people had not viewed that video (secretly taken) and rushed to public judgment of this woman.
In the interest of political correctness are we waging a war on the right of women to exert their own sexuality? If a woman – be she a teacher, a librarian or a neuro-surgeon wants to dress sexually, is it ok for society to tell her she cannot?
