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.

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.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool.

Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
