Fashion crime. Seriously? October 25, 2010

Reports here about the (ironically named) People of Freedom Party’s attempt, in the Italian town of Castellammare di Stabia, to outlaw miniskirts as a form of anti-social behaviour.

Mayor Luigi Bobbio said the regulations would help “restore urban decorum and facilitate better civil co-existence”.

Of course, the way to ‘restore urban decorum’ is to regulate women’s dress. Sigh. To think that effort is being wasted on such nonsense regulation instead of the actual sexism in Italian society.
