"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..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
