Thank you. This crap is the first step to an American burkha-ville run by jealous old farts. I AM an old fart and female and I am inspired by seeing youthful beauty in any gender. I am sick to death with seeing other old farts trying to shame them into misery.

I'm pretty sure that if you visit the ruins of Pompeii you will find drawings where a father bemoans the fact that his daughter's toga is too tight. Pretty sure the drawings in Chauvet show a mother trying to put another animal skin over her daughter's too-revealing garments.

Same as it ever was. God aren't we tired of having the same conversation over and over again, as a human race?

They used to make us kneel on the floor to prove our skirt was long enough to prevent it interfering with teacher and boy brain functions.

School uniforms are the only thing I have ever seen that protects girl children from this kind of harassment and abuse of authority. Even that is not 100% effective.

Southern Beale is right on the money, though the daughter in question was probably wearing a too tight or too skimpy chiton. I think white eye makeup was considered "fast" too.

I don't think school uniforms are all that effective. Google "school uniform porn". You could have the girls all wearing Michelin tire man suits, and all the boys would grow up with tire girl fetishes.

Hell, when I was in high school (mumblesomething years ago), my mother would FREAK if I even THOUGHT about putting lace bits in my hair (a la Madonna at the time) - as if THAT was going to make me a slutty whore. She also (tried to) discourage me from wearing my friend's denim jacket w/the arms cut off... So, I'd wait until I got to school to put those items on...anything ANYTHING to distract from the horrid (and I do mean DETESTABLE) clothes she generally bought for me on the occassions she shopped for me and not with me.
But the fact I was on the dance/drill team and kicked my legs over my head every Friday (or Saturday) night wearing a short skirt...was NOT considered a problem by her...sigh.
Oy vez MARIA!

Let's meditate on this classic bit of wisdom from the Most Concerned Dad of All Time, Joe Simpson:

"Jessica never tries to be sexy. She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she's sexy in both. She's got double D's! You can't cover those suckers up!"

This topic and Southern Beale's quote just reminded me of this...

Great post, A.
