It’s officially summer. With the arrival of hot and humid days, the talk about what is appropriate to wear have doubled if not tripled in the colder months.
Every time I hear about a woman or a female student being chastised for what they are wearing, I always wonder what makes clothing provocative? The answer is always the same. It isn’t dressing provocatively, when men take off their shirts, do we all go crazy and check them out/sexually assault them? No.
So why do we police what women wear? Easy, the idea that women’s bodies are taboo and shameful, is sexist bullshit. It’s a fabricated concept.
