I surmised that singapore isnt a closed door country,and is actually influenced by outside practices,of the major nations,that is why i brought in those links despite they being outside singapore.If it applies in those first world countries it could apply here too.I dont quite see what irony is there in the links i have pasted over.It just seems like a pure support for shorts among men.
Secondly: I can tell you clearly that not all countries that you would consider 'First World' support your idea of shorts in office. SO it would be good for you stop your generalizations and look into details. Whatever they do in down-under does not apply automatically to other countries, regardless of region, culture or development label.
Last but not least: just because you don't recognize irony does not mean there is none. It is known that certain cultures have no understanding for irony - although this forum shows that this general statement is slowly becoming invalid for Singapore. Well, at least that's one point where Singapore follows the external influences that you mentioned.
Please, wear your shorts wherever you like, I'm not going to stop you. It's your freedom of expression after all. But respect those who have a different view on naked thighs and don't create a gender issue.
Conservative?Yeah right,in their allowance for female leg exposure,but still aversive to that of men's?Hypocrisy much?Just because the western nations have long accepted the myraid of women's fashion at work,but have only just began to consider that of men's?No matter how u say it,it seems like singapore is following their footsteps,abeit a few steps behind.And what i intended was for the people here to see some supportive arguments regarding this,i dont see how it has to be so "closed",to just include local examples.Singapore is a small nation and hence would lack ample examples to bring up upon,especially on an idea that has still not yet been fully accepted.
I beg your pardon,but u havent seem to have explained why those articles contained the irony u claim.U interpreted it as irony;however i have read them and see no irony.If u are unable to tell me exactly wherein the irony lies,i guess we just have to accept that we have different ways of seeing things.
Respect those with a different view on naked thigh?thats irony,since it seems every single one of them seem to have accepted that,at least on women,but just not on men.And i dont know where u have been living,but i assure u young women take their privileges of exposure very seriously;both in and out of work,u can see it everywhere.So maybe we can start respecting it as a rights of both genders rather than one?
I dont like creating gender issues,and have long tried to avoid seeing it as one,but the fact is that,it kind of is.The demographics for this situation is heavily skewed to one side.Leg exposure and acceptance of alternatives form of fashion at work isnt on the same parity as death sentencing and homosexual issues,just to remind u
