Recently I read that Taiwan's first lady Wu Shu-jen (
I would like anyone with a sense of self-responsibility to explain to me how the women's choice of clothing could be a cause of any chaos. To say their clothing, or lack thereof, would be a source of social strife is to say the "beholder" assumes no responsibility for his or her own behavior.
Wu's statement sounded more like an invitation to the Taliban and their burqa designers -- who cover women, literally, from head to toe -- to come here and implement their draconian clothing laws.
A head of state from the Middle East once met US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice in America, and later told the media that he was "uncomfortable" in her presence because of the knee-length dress she wore. He was uncomfortable because he could see her ... uh, erm, dare I say it? Knees!
These uncomfortable people are leaders of nations. It's more than worrisome to know that their thoughts and opinions are influenced by what people wear.
