scantily-clad students but we have to pretend it's not distracting. from programming patty.
How can this not be distracting to others, especially men? But I am not allowed to say that publicly, because the official line here at my university is that if men are distracted by half-clad women, that’s their problem for being such perverts. However let’s leave aside the Pollyannish expectation that 18-year-old boys will not ogle bare female flesh. What about respect? Respect for your classmates, for your professor, for the institution itself – how bout respect for the very process of learning, for the luxury of spending four years dedicated to edifying yourself – a luxury that few of our grandparents were afforded?
I can live with the flannel pyjamas, even the slippers, but not a flimsy tank top that looks like it’d slide right off if she sneezed, or skimpy satin shorts that would reveal all if she bent down to pick up a pencil. But due to the climate here at Politcally Correct U, I cannot even say that sexy skimpy pyjamas are inappropriate for class. That would make me part of the oppressive rape culture victim blaming patriarchy. So I just have to pretend like that’s perfectly normal, legitimate fashion choice for a 2:00 p.m. history class.
