Essential Estrogen: It's just a little right, right?
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Granted, Marie Claire has had issues with progressives. I was still a little knocked off balance, however, by their interview with presidential hopeful and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. After the whole evolution hand-raising incident I should not have been shocked when Huckabee told the magazine that women in short skirts are just asking for it. Q: I read that you're against miniskirts. A: If a person dresses provocatively, they're calling attention - maybe not the most desirable kind - to private parts of their body. Ignoring for a moment that some Christians in our nation believe a woman in "men's clothing" (i.e., pants) is an abomination in the eyes of God, which leaves us ladies who wish to not incite acts of sexual violence and remain pious with only a choice of long skirts... probably without a slit on the side or back for easy walking. The fact of the matter is that anyone who dresses outside the norm for a given situation is calling attention to him or herself.
