Last month, conservative mayor of the Italian town Castellammare di Stabia, Luigi Bobbio, passed a law that made miniskirts and other “provocative outfits” illegal. And no, he didn’t go into detail about the latter. For all I know, my shirt that proclaims, “talk nerdy to me” could get me fined.
On Sept. 17, the University of Florida fired professor Timothy Taylor for offending students by saying that Latin American women dress more provocatively than U.S. women. Bravo Gators! For once, I am on your side.
