PHOTOS! Here again are pics of Geisy Arruda whose miniskirt got her expelled and made her a Brazilian fascination. Geisy Arruda’s photos and youtube video prove that La Universidad Bandeirante (Bandeirante University) really overreacted to a student’s clothing close.
When it comes to wardrobe, Geisy Arruda is no Pamela Anderson nor Lady GaGa. But by the about of press Aruda’s photos and video have gotten, you would think this mini skirt is sometime ripped from a Maxim magazine spread. Rather, it’s not that mini.
So why did this Sao Bernardo do Campo university in a wealthy section of Sao Paulo react this way? Why did 700 male and female students near riot on October 22, 2009 over Arruda’s clothing selection? The answer is not lost in translation. The answer is just lost.
It all sounds like an old Jerry Springer episode – students who dress too provocative and the classmates who hate them. But Brazilian government is not laughing. Reports say the Minister Nilcéa Freire from the Special Secretariat of Policies for Women (SPM) and the Ministry of Education are now looking at the situation.
Arruda has told local press that the event was “absurd”. Geisy Arruda adds she has never been sent a letter confirming being kicked out of the university and has only learned it through press. Geisy Arruda says she was told by school officials she could return. So what really happened?
University retained an attorney who would issue statements about Arruda’s conduct. Universidade Bandeirantes’ lawyer, Josias de Souza, reportedly issued a statement that Arruda “always liked to provoke boys, the problem was not with her clothes, but the way she acts, talks, crosses her legs, and walks.”
But is there more to this story than how a student crosses her legs?

On October 22 at 8:30 pm, Geisy went to the school restroom with friend Kelly Andrezzil. There, 20 girls went at Geisy. Andrezzi said:
“I was very afraid of what could happen, but I could not have imagined what was about to come, students were cursing Geisy, calling her ugly names and accusing her of drawing too much attention, even threatening to beat her up.”
Male students started to break into the female restroom. Amanda de Souza Augusto remembers:
“We had to slap, clinch and fight with the boys, who were trying to go into the bathroom, and trying to put cell phones between Geisy’s legs. It was an aggression, an injustice against her.”
At this point, the situation became serious with allegations of threats of assault. When security were able to assist Arruda out of the restroom, male students started to take camera cellphone photos and record videos, that would eventually get uploaded to YouTube.
In the end Geisy Arruda had to put on the teacher’s white jacket and be escorted out. Thereafter the school published a note in the São Paulo daily newspapers (that by some accounts is described as an “advertisement”). It read “Educational Responsibility – Education is made with attitude not complacency” and found that Geisy Arruda’s conduct had “resulted in a collective reaction in defense of the school environment.”
The advertisement claimed Geisy Arruda was formally expelled. Arruda claims she never received a direct letter telling her she was expelled and was told she could return.
From there, Geisy Arruda would be booked across national tv talk shows, often appearing in or with the infamous pink-ish mini skirt, sometimes in dressed, sometimes in pants.
