Thank goodness female lawmakers in Indonesia have their male colleagues to look out for them. These silly women simply thought their outfits were a fashion statement, but little did they know that their “provocative” clothing invited rape. That’s why members of Indonesia’s parliament have drafted rules to ban female lawmakers from wearing miniskirts and other “skimpy clothes” items to work. Said the speaker of the Indonesia’s House of Representatives:

“We know there have been a lot of rape cases and other immoral acts recently, and this is because women aren’t wearing appropriate clothes. Women wearing inappropriate clothes arouse men, so it needs to be stopped. You know what men are like — provocative clothing will make them do things.”

Thanks, guys! I know how hard it must be not to rape your female colleagues. Really, it’s a wonder women are allowed to work alongside you at all. [AFP]

Offenders in miniskirts will receive fines of $35 to $696. Oh, hi, Italy, how about the men learn some self-control and stop sexual harassment, instead of policing women’s clothes? Just a thought!

“Since half-term, the skirts have got ridiculously short,” headmaster Jane Holland wrote in a letter to the governors of Upton-by-Chester High School in Chester. “The skirts are too revealing especially on staircases. It’s not appropriate for the time and the place.” Keep reading »
