Oh no, Not Pants
The King of Swaziland thinks that women wearing pants is the cause of all the world's misery. He ought to get out more.
I remember, back in the 60's when I was in grade school, girls weren't allowed to wear shorts to school (or maybe we were allowed to wear shorts but not "hot pants" which was all there was to wear anyway). The reason, as I remember it, was that the boys wouldn't be able to concentrate. I recall feeling really pissed off about that. Now, sometimes, the young women and men I teach come to class wearing very revealing clothing, and, sometimes, I admit, I find it a little distracting. But I'm still glad that they can wear whatever they feel like wearing.
