With that said.
Yes Missouri is forcing women to wear burkas in the State House. /jk
The addition . . . sparked outrage from some Democrats who said the change was sexist because the dress code for men was not altered.
Okay. Amend the men's dress code to state they must have their shoulders covered, even though they're already required to wear a coat and tie.
“Okay. Amend the men’s dress code to state they must have their shoulders covered, even though they’re already required to wear a coat and tie. “
You forgot this very important part: it was “Republican state Rep. Ann Kelley” who made the recommendation. Probably ‘cause some of the “fairer” sex were displaying their “assets”.
I’ve never been to a state house meeting so I would not know but she does make a good point.
“Men are required to wear a jacket, a shirt and a tie, correct? And if they walked in here without a tie, they would get gaveled down in a heartbeat. If they walked in without a jacket, they would get gaveled down in a heartbeat. So, we are so interested in being equal,” Kelley said on Wednesday during the floor debate.
Wanna bet half those guys came in without a Tie and Jacket? The rules are for thee but not for me sort of thing.
Good. Look professional.
Many people today don’t know what business attire is, or how to dress modestly, or how to wear clothes neatly.
Hence, dress codes.
I noted your quote and the other content like the number of (D) people complaining and expect many of the other offenders are of like persuasion.
My wife complains often about co-workers who don’t comply with dress standards, both M an F And this is for a major legal firm!
No, both sexes have formal dress, just women are complaining.
Shoulders covered sounds pretty Muslim to me from my travels. I would vote against it, especially since I live in Las Vegas and have sleeves or shoulders covered only in winter. It’s pathetic what people think passes as “professional.”
What is a woman?
Sounds fair to me. If the men have to wear coat and tie, the women should have to wear jackets, blazers or cardigans as well.
Stupid, whiny Democrat women. 🙄
Yeah ... the wimmins should all wear string bikinis, and the menfolk should wear banana-hammocks.
Cuz we wouldn't want to risk being anything like moslems ...
The dress code for both/all sexes should be “nudity”...
This would certainly increase the amount of energy expended doing the state’s business...
Imagine, if you will ...
Sheila Jackson Lee, Rosa deLauro, Chuck Schumer, and Jerrold Nadler complying with your proposed dress code.
or Hillery Clinton
What are the rules for visitors?
As an example, let’s say a Canadian shop teacher is on vacation in the US and wants to see democracy in action, since Democracy doesn’t exist in Canada under Trudeau.
Remember when people taking flights wore suits?
Times have changed (and not for the better).
I remember when all school teachers wore suits
Yeah, I didn’t even think about that :P
