    I sort of like that, but looking at where my fingers end when straight by my side, it'd be way shorter than the skirts I wear to work.

    I just took some pics, but am too chicken to post on here.

    Interested in the idea that mini skirts are only for teens and the other reference. I won't say my age (it's in my sig anyway), but I still wear minis, and short shorts (not for work), but I don't wear micros.

    Anyway - new thread for that topic.

    Or perhaps if you identify every woman in a short skirt as a potential 'hooker' and find yourself unable to stop gawking at them then perhaps your own attitude needs an over haul. Just another suggestion anyway!

    However, you implied that prostitutes are all dirty/unclean. Making sweeping statements and/or stereotypes about a group of people is, by definition, being prejudice.
    A large chunk of prostitutes are dirty and on drugs. That's a fact. Many are going through tough times and hygiene isn't a priority. No point skirting around the truth to make people feel better. It doesn't mean the women are not deserving of a bit of love and empathy.

    Perhaps people could start another thread on hookers and empathy.

    Language isn't "petty". It's why we have so many words blanked on this forum. Language is powerful and something we should all be mindful of in the bubhub community.

    ETA I'm not a guy.
    I thought you said you were out?

    You could always start a new thread on hookers. Or are you trying to get this thread closed down?

    Anyway back to the point of the thread: do you think the skirt in this story is too short for a professional workplace?

    Default Short skirts?

    I used to work in a call centre where there was little to very minimal face to face contact with customers (might happen once a month) and was given verbal warning for wearing knee length cotton maternity skirt when 6 1/2 months pregnant! No way could I squeeze into tailored skirts by then.

    Default Re: Short skirts?

    I think that if the skirt is short enough that you would have difficulty picking something up of the ground if you dropped it, then it's too short.

    That skirt is fine. If it were only just covering her behind, then perhaps not.

    Yes it's too short in my opinion.

    13 pages and no mention of Ally McBeal?

    This is such a non issue that the only actual issue here is how women are policing how other women dress in 2012.

    VicPark - are you a man? I'd really like to know.
