Moms used to scold their daughters to cover up so as not to give boys the wrong impression. This made it easier for boys to figure out which girls to buy dinner. 2016 moms are fighting school principals to let their teen daughters wear yoga pants and show off their bras. It’s unclear if they’re taking a moral stand or just want their daughters to be picked first for rainbow parties. Blue is your color. Don’t get stuck being the magenta whore in the caboose. Singer Erykah Badu went on Twitter to take sides against a mom who insisted it was the male teachers’ problem if they found her daughter short skirts distracting:
Men and women both go thru cycles of arousal. Men automatically are attracted to women of child bearing age. Being attracted to a young woman in a short skirt does not make one a “pervert”. It makes them human…. It’s not ok to “prey” on young women. But do I think it is unnatural for a heterosexual male 2b attracted to a young woman in a revealing skirt? No. I think it is his nature.. If I had a school I would make sure that the uniform skirt length was a nice knee length. It is fair to everyone.
Badu can be nutty and wear stupid fucking hats, but she’s plainly rational. Her comments sparked outrage among feminists who insist that men need to be re-trained not to get stiffies from teen girls in leather minis. People love to write laws to control natural human behavior. It never works. You can punish people severely enough that they restrain or hide their natural inclinations. You can’t legislatively combat a million years of human evolution. Even if male behavior chills you to your artificially sweetened core. Nobody knows why your daddy didn’t love you. Perhaps the answer is under Erykah Badu’s hat.
