“What girls these days are wearing”

So much nasty judgemental shit in the comments here. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised; an opinion piece about what girls are wearing “these days” is bound to bring out the haters. But the variety in the name-calling surprised me: slappers, sluts, hookers, skanky little street whores, girls with no class, easy targets for sexual predators, easy girls.  It makes me very glad that my own Mum encouraged teenage me to buy a mini skirt that I liked the look of rather than telling me I would look like a prostitute in it- possibly because she was never so shortsighted as to have forgotten her own sartorial past and the “whorey” and revealing stuff she wore: terry-towelling micro shorts, anyone?
