The REAL Fashion Police Strike Again!

October 29, 2010

The mayor of an Italian resort town, Luigi Bobbio, has ordered police to literally fine women for wearing skirts that are too short or exposing too much cleavage (up to €300).

First off – any law that is enforced only on one gender is beyond questionable in my book.

Secondly – cleavage is completely dependent on body shape!  And law enforcement should never be based on body shape.

Several librarians at my high school had a similar ‘law’ that was only ‘enforced’ within the library walls… as they so aptly put it: busty girls had to wear higher necked shirts than flat chested girls.

The ‘best’ part of all of this is Luigi’s description of how police officers will know if a woman is wearing something too skimpy:

“They won’t need to carry out checks up close, one glance will be enough to judge.”

So wrong.
