Oh boy. I’ve already discussed racial issues this week — do I really want to go here?
Here goes: Another eye opener. I’ve seen two news stories this week about how bad miniskirts are for women.
First, a university in the state of Sinaloa wants its female students to stop wearing miniskirts in order to prevent the chances of being raped or harassed.
Second, the Archdiocese of the Catholic church issued some sort of publication recently that stressed the importance of modesty, and the evil of miniskirts. Again, in order to prevent harassment, and of course, to preserve piety. They also urge women to not engage in dirty jokes.
If only the banning of types of clothing would prevent rape. Or harassment. Or derogatory remarks.
If only it were that simple, right?
