It was heartening to learn of a positive turn of events in a case of a junior high school student who wore a kilt to school but was insulted by an authority who said he looked like a cross-dresser.
Even though it was in Utah, by “cross-dresser” it did not mean someone who was decorating a religious symbol.
You can read the story at the Standard.net: Kilt creates a stir, then an educational opportunity.
I gotta say I’ve been in more than a few buildings and places, and sure wished I was wearing a kilt (cotton vs. wool though). Instead the stupid dress code called for circulation-choking pants, circulation-choking long-sleeve shirts, and circulation-choking neck ties.
Man it’ll be great to get out from under the curse of the self-righteous overlords who have to drape and hide themselves under bolts and bolts of cloth. I’m certainly not advocating for nudism or anything near that, but “business attire” is ridiculous in many places. It’s like they’re saying, “let’s ignore the reality that it’s hot outside, and dress like it’s frigid, and in the mean time we’ll turn the AC on full-blast and create global warming so that it’ll be even hotter outside!”
