Sad: British Girlymen Want Miniskirts Banned From Offices for Being ‘Too Distracting’

Geez, and these folks used to rule the world? First we’ve got that sniveling worm Piers Morgan getting beaten down by a woman on Twitter and now we have British men telling us they’re too delicate to handle seeing a little thigh in the office?

Good grief, man up and enjoy life, folks.

Men want hotpants, miniskirts and low cut tops banned from the office because they are too distracting, new research shows.

A study found that at least a third of men want women stopped from wearing revealing outfits at work, with skimpy shorts the first to go.

Hotpants were named by 32 per cent as unacceptable, with 30 per cent adding that anything with a leopard print should be banned.

See-through, or ‘sheer’, tops were deemed beyond the pale by 27 per cent of men, while 24 per cent named miniskirts and 22 per cent low cut tops.

Meanwhile, 67 per cent of women say colleagues should be stopped from wearing tiny shorts and 52 per cent believe miniskirts are unprofessional.

Won’t be long until the left in this country gets on board with this silliness. Maybe we can have some legislation outlawing miniskirts and low-cut blouses.

    I think they should be forced to wear burkas. That is if the men can resist a little T&A (toen and ankles).

    “No Sex Please, We’re British” was once a fictional comedy… apparently now it’s a documentary.

    My company (in the US, but brazilian-owned) already has a very comprehensive dress code. If you violate it and/or make your coworkers uncomfortable… HR handles it. Does the UK not believe in HR?

    Seriously, I think this list covers everything they’re complaining about, and more. I thought this was how most companies handled it…

    Please refer to the guidelines below to ensure adherence to company policy:
    -Skirts for women, no more than 3 inches above the knee.
    -Dress capris or casual slacks, such as Dockers or khaki-style. Socks must be worn.
    -Dressy, open-toe shoes
    -Technicians are allowed to wear jeans Monday through Friday as long as they are clean and in good repair.
    -From the first shift on Friday until 6:00 a.m. Monday, jeans are allowed as long as they are not torn, frayed, bleached, or discolored. Socks/hosiery must be worn.
    -Employees working weekends (Friday 10:00 p.m. until Monday 6:00 a.m.) may wear T-shirts and tennis shoes that are not torn, frayed, offensive, or discolored.

    Unacceptable attire at all locations includes the following:
    -Mini or ultra-short skirts/dresses/shorts
    -Shorts or casual Capri’s
    -Cropped or bare midriff blouses/tops/dresses
    -Sheer blouses or blouses/dresses with plunging necklines
    -Unitards or similar tight clothing
    -Sweat suits, sweat pants, or wind suits
    -Overly loose baggy clothing (extra-long shirts, pants that ride too low)
    -T-shirts, except on weekends as indicated previously
    -Sleeveless tops, such as tank tops (business dress is acceptable)
    -Discolored or ripped jeans
    -Stretch pants/stirrup pants
    -Hats/caps, skull caps, headscarves
    -Athletic shoes, except on weekends as indicated previously
    -Flip flops, crocs, or other casual sandals
    -Excessive accessories
    -Any other dress that may be deemed inappropriate for the workplace

    It’s tempting to call them “Girlymen” and pretend they’re hopeless prudes but what about personal dignity? If a male colleague came to work in a see-through muscle-tee and low-cut slacks, I’d wonder whether he was serious about his career or looking for something else.

    So… “leopard print” makes British Girlymen too happy in the pants? Really?

    You have to wonder how many of these same “One third” are also pro-burkha. It certainly would explain why they can’t be held responsible for what happens if some brazen hussy wants to show off her ankles.

    I would not put myself among the one-third of men who object to women wearing moderately revealing or provocative clothing in an office. But given how much trouble a man in an office can get if a woman objects that he’s been looking at her (or “staring,” “ogling,” or whichever damaging verb the woman chooses to use), I can see how even a man with no “girlyman” traits might prefer that the women at his workplace dress conservatively.
