Chinese women warned not to wear miniskirts
Police recommend that they cover up when riding public transportation to avoid harassment.
Women in China are being told what to wear and where to sit in an effort to shelter them from sexual harassment. According to the Daily Mail, Chinese police are warning women not to wear revealing clothing such as miniskirts or hot pants if they plan to take public transportation. In addition, the police are advising them to avoid sitting on the upper decks of buses and to cover themselves with bags, magazines or newspapers so no one can sneak a peek.

“Women should not wear minimal clothing, such as miniskirts or hot pants, when taking public transportation and should call police promptly if they are sexually harassed,” says a statement released by the Chinese police. “Women are advised to not sit on higher levels of buses and to stand on lower stairs, to avoid being the target of inappropriate picture-taking, and they should shelter their bodies with bags, magazines and newspapers.”

IT IS JUST AMAZING HOW PEOPLE CAN GET OUT OF SHAPE BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE TYPES IN CAPITALS. I SHOULD GO TO MY ENT TO CHECK MY HEARING BECAUSE I CAN NOT HEAR A THING. IF IT BOTHERS YOU SO MUCH DO NOT READ ANY COMMENTS THAT ARE IN CAPS. WHY DOES IT BOTHER YOU-- DO YOU HAVE ISSUES THAT YOUR PSYCH SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF-- DO ALL CAPS CONFUSE YOU-- IS THIS A PLOT SO THE WORLD WILL ONLY DO IT YOUR WAY--DO YOU HAVE CONTROL ISSUES, REMEMBER THAT OTHER GUY WHO WANTED EVERYONE TO DO IT HIS WAY AND ONLY HIS WAY--HITLER--- TRY SOMETHING NEW --RELAX--IF THE ONLY COMMENT YOU HAVE IS ABOUT THE CAPITALS JUST WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN LITTLE SELF. IT SEEMS THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF YOU WOULD.
If you dress like a slut, you shouldn't be surprised when you are treated like one. Does that give a man the right to sexually assault you? No, it doesn't. But women who fail to admit that there is an element of male society that is borderline animal are just stupid. There are lots of pervs and sex addicts out there and if you leave the house scantily clad, the pervy types are going to assume that you are looking for trouble.
Yeah sounds like they really need a much more serious consequence for rape and harassment there.
Even women with their husband or boyfriend have been gang raped on buses in India. I think this might be a reaction as man over there feel they aren't in control anymore.

Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans.

Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace.
