Skirting The Issue

Illustration for article titled Skirting The Issue

Nsaba Buturo, the ethics and integrity minister of Uganda, is calling for a ban on the wearing of miniskirts because they can cause traffic accidents. Buturo told reporters: "What's wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an accident because some of our people are weak mentally." Buturo also claims that wearing a short skirt is akin to being naked and should be considered "indecent," which would make it punishable under Ugandan law. [BBC]

So I realize this is ridiculous BUT I saw a girl in a miniskirt yesterday that was so beyond inappropriate I wasn't quite sure what to do. It was at least HALF the length of my shortest cheerleading uniform and kind of looked like the skirt Kendra wore to that Playboy golf outing on Girls Next Door. I don't see anything wrong with an international ban on those things.
