    Short Skirt Ban Stirs Controversy

    Fri Jun 4,10:11 AM ET Reuters

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian regional government has told its women employees to stop wearing short skirts and tone down their make-up because they were arousing their male colleagues' "animal instincts."

    The ruling by Oleg Shlyk, deputy governor of Kaliningrad on Russia's Baltic coast, has stirred indignation among many in the enclave -- including its menfolk.

    "Of course, a woman must attract a man's attention, but not so much as to overstep norms and arouse not business-like but only animal instincts," Shlyk told the NTV television network.

    An NTV commentator said Shlyk's ruling meant that women in Kaliningrad administration headquarters would have to forsake short skirts in favor of business-suits, shun outlandish jewelry and wear only modest make-up.

    Yuri Matochkin, a deputy in the regional parliament, indignantly said the ruling brought shame on Shlyk himself.

    "If this distracts him, then he has chosen the wrong job and if he cannot control himself to direct his energy correctly he ought to change his job," Matochkin said.

    Vladimir Nikitin, a senior parliament official, agreed.

    "Deputies of our duma (parliament) and members of staff have not given any reason to doubt their high moral level and reliability, as far as their dress code goes at least," Nikitin said.

      Yea, short is best. Practical and environment friendly too - smaller textile used in making short skirts, consumes less electricity during the sewing process than long skirts, less soap and water during washing, etc...IMO, a law should be enacted requiring all women to wear short skirts.

          “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

            Just one more reason to be glad you live in a free and democratic society. Especially when the wind is blowing.

                    When I figured that I could have ONE DVD down here, that one was it. Many of my friends, and definately my wife, don't understand it, but IMHO it's one of the top five all time movies.

                    So many great one liners:

                    You sounded taller on the radio

                    When I get home, I'm gonna pop your Mama right in the mouth

                    I'm in hot pursuit!


                    ...and the scene where Cletus leaves the bar after the fight (someone one-sided) with the bikers is an all-time classic!

                          I have to disagree. No exceptions.

                          Why deny the right of a 600lb woman to think she is sexy enough to wear a micromini, imagine how many yards of textile it would take to make a long skirt or pantsuit for a woman this big? If you ever see one in miniskirt, don't think how bad she looks, just don't think and pray she doesn't see you ogling.

                            "Don't think" will be easy. I suspect my brain will be erased and what she takes as ogling will be a vacant stare.
