Not-So-Kind Interest - Fashion Police Attack

<< < (3/3)

Allyson:
I "love" how people seriously think that certain outfits actually make one more likely to be the victim of a crime. Not only is this offensive, it's also statistically inaccurate. Anecdotal evidence (as in 'me and people I've talked to about this issue') show it doesn't even make one less likely to get harassed in public (except apparently by overexcited bus stop ladies..). I have been catcalled when wearing a huge winter coat and ignored when dressed in club clothes.

Lula:
But wearing short skirts IS dangerous.  You risk being assailed by nosy grannies and their wandering opinions.

Sounds to me like somebody needs to lecture this busybody about the legitimate danger of picking fights with strangers at a city bus stop.  One of these days she's going to provoke the wrong person.
