  • Somebody has just cursed himself a lifetime of callused handjobs on Valentine’s Day: a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, received a handwritten message from a fellow student this Tuesday telling her, basically, that she was dressed like a slut! As you can see from Brittany Molina’s not-at-all-revealing outfit and the snotty letter above, her dress, cardigan, and tights made some dude feel as if he was not “safe, morally as well as physically” in Britt’s boobalicious presence. An Honor Code like this in practice can become little more than an excuse to slut-shame female students when they dress in a way that makes your weenie tingle. I don’t have any problem with a school having a dress code for both genders. But I do have a problem with people policing the way other women dress in a shameful and punishing way. You know, like in Afghanistan or at the CPAC conference. [The Daily What]
