A Catholic school in the US has implemented a "no swearing" rule - but only for girls, reports news.com.au.
Female students at the high school in northern New Jersey have taken a "no swearing" pledge at the request of school administrators.
The girls were asked to stand and raise their right hands and vow, “I do solemnly swear not to use profanities of any kind within the walls and properties of Queen of Peace High School. In other words, I swear not to swear. So help me God.”
But some people are questioning why male students weren’t required to do likewise.
The teacher who organised the pledge says that while males weren't asked to take the vow, they have been asked not to curse when girls are near.
Teacher Lori Flynn told a local reporter there was no double-standard. Ms Flynn says school officials want "ladies to act like ladies".
School principal, Brother Larry Lavallee, said girls had the foulest language. Apparently many female students said they would try to follow the pledge they took last Friday morning, even though they believe it should apply to all students.
