Indonesia wants to ban 'pornographic' miniskirts3/31/2012
Women's hemlines may be dropping in Indonesia, and not for fashion's sake. The country's religious affairs minister, Suryadharma Ali, said this week he wants to ban miniskirts under the country's new anti-porn laws because they constitute "pornography." Ali said he wanted to establish clear criteria for what constituted porn and is therefore illegal, adding, "for example, skirts worn by women must flow past the knees." Earlier this month, Indonesia's parliament proposed prohibiting female politicians and staff members from wearing miniskirts, which the House speaker said led to "rapes and other immoral acts" and prompted men "to do things."
Do you think miniskirts are pornographic?
