"Even international signs show women must wear skirts"

Yes, that statement - or something close to it - was made on a modest-dressing blog or message board a couple years ago. Modest-coverer types were saying, "See? Even the evil governments recognize that women are to wear skirts, not pants - which are MOL the international sign for the men's room.

Thus, my sheer delight to have found the following:

How strange. I always thought that international signs showed that people must have round white faces without any eyes, nose or mouth and hands without fingers.

*the stupid it hurts. :doh:

Of course they don't show feet, they might defraud people with foot fetishes.

Sorry--that's the sound of my head hitting the table in frustration at the willful stupidity......

What do they make of kilts? Or of priests wearing cassocks? Or the robes that men wore throughout history until relatively recently?

I feel that the whole obsession with skirts for women isn't really about modesty or gender-appropriate clothing, it's more about the symbolism of "wearing the pants", things you can really do only when wearing pants, and so forth.

As it happens, I love wearing skirts, but I like that I do it by choice!

I kept forgetting to get a photo, but when I was in Kuwait, there were signs to throw garbage in a trash can. The figure on the sign was wearing a floor-length robe. I kept laughing inwardly thinking that it must apply only to fundie women and Kuwaitis.

When we were in Jamaica, the pictures on the doors were of faces. The men's room face had facial hair.

I know several women who would qualify for the men's room if it's based on facial hair :-)

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
