It can be debated whether the supposed “super-models” who appeared at the recent Millionaire Fair sold their souls by agreeing to be paid money and follow the instructions “just stand there and look whorey”, in order to impress the male bon vivants, or whether that isn’t the case at all, and in fact they were treated as real people, and were asked about their thoughts on … the life of Socrates, and other high-brow issues.
We shall never really know, as for some reason we weren’t invited. However we do know that sexism and lunacy won yet another point on their seemingly incessant road to glory, after reading this news:
Many students disagree with the new regulations implemented at Shanghai Normal University, that stops female teachers from wearing miniskirts and other “inappropriate” clothes to work, the New Times reported. Students preferred their teachers in more fashionable attire. As a part of the campaign that launched last week in the university, the regulation also banned halter tops, sandals and all sleeveless shirts.
“When a female teacher wears these types of clothing, she may unconsciously expose her waist or underwear,” Qian Jianping, a director from the Women’s Commission in the university said to the newspaper. “I’m not willing to chance a teacher’s clothes arousing unnecessary fantasies among the students. Teachers should dress decently to win the respect of the students.”
“Get your head out of the clouds, student Zhou! Your dreams, hopes and fantasies are purely unnecessary“.
And remember people, all of men’s urges and desires are women’s fault.
The teacher Wu said: “Halter tops and miniskirts may reflect the vitality of young female teachers. But, knowledge, etiquette and personality are more important factors.”
We agree with Teacher Wu, but really … and sandals being banned? To presumably prevent any foot fetishes arising in China’s young and impressionable youth? Excuse us while we go and scream into a pillow.
