Implicit endorsement of skirt wearing

Postby TheRod » Sat Oct 04, 2014 8:26 am

Australian politicians have recently unintentionally supported the right for men to wear skirts:

"Australia is a very open and free tolerant society and we don't discriminate on the base of religious or cultural clothing - people are free to wear what they like."

Of course it was said in the context of a much more political issue, women wearing burkas, but mens skirts is the other side of the coin.

Our Prime Minister can on occur say the right thing, but I expect not to see many more skirted men in my area, unfortunately.
