Should females be allowed to wear mini shorts in public?

Posted by: Sophia13

Based off an Opinion I saw once. I was stunned by the answers it got, so I decided to try this again.

@Sophia13: I'm not sure which opinion you were referring to, but if you're speaking of the one asking whether schools should ban them, the situations aren't really parallels...

@Diqiucun_Cunmin: The opinion was posted a long time ago, but I've been thinking about it ever since. The title actually was "Should girls be allowed to wear mini shorts in public?" and so many people were saying no that I decided to try it again.

@Sophia: If it's a blanket ban on all shorts above the knees, then I don't understand why anyone would agree with that. Gymnasts might need to wear them, for example. If there's clearly a sexual intent, there are always other laws (public indecency, disorderly conduct etc) that they can cite.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin: I agree, but that Opinion still got some pretty misogynistic replies, including "

Hold on, my comment got cut off.

@Sophia: Can you link to the opinions question? I must have either missed it or forgotten about it.

I tried looking for it and didn't find it, but I remember it distinctly. My guess is that it was reported and deleted.

@Sophia13: If there really were misogynistic comments, then possibly. The modding of the opinions section is the hardest to understand - there was a perfectly good (or at least that's how it appeared to me) death penalty question that got deleted for whatever reason. In other sections, users at least have clear guidelines on what will be deleted, even if the act of moderating itself isn't transparent.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin: Okay. I just made this poll to see the responses, as I said before.

Peter499, so you speak for your sister?

"I hope people actually thought this through."... " I wouldn't want any female to where mini shorts except to the beach." *face palm*

@Peter499 Don't worry, your brains still going through major development.
