2017-9-12 09:00
Even middle school dress code policies seem to be too much for China. The standard fingertip length shorts and dresses are met with staring. Three fingers width shirt straps garner scandalized glances and unsolicited comments. Accidentally revealed bra straps on shoulders get pointed looks.

        Interesting observations but a tad over the top. Feminists have a long history of b1tshing and moaning. It is time for them to return to Planet Earth and cohabit along with normal people.

Why complain that people stare at individuals exposing body parts that society is used to not see? These women expose themselves. We call this "exhibitionism". Exhibitionism is a mental deformity for which you could go to jail in the recent past. Now long slender legs and women's cleavages are a normal sight although they are highly distracting. If everyone has to get used to seeing half-naked females then these exhibitionist females should get used to being stared at. Full stop.
