I'm dissapointed that it wasn't about vanity.

That's an assertion, and if it makes an atmosphere more sexually charged, work productivity probably declines. "For example, research has shown that federal employees who encountered frequent sexual harassment experienced substandard job productivity, problems with careers, and poor interpersonal relationships."


You're making a number of assumptions here. One, that relaxed dress = more sexual dress. And two, that such clothing would be enough to increase sexual harassment cases, let alone to a point where it inhibits productivity.

I was holding out hope that it would in fact be about the esteemed SF member.

The bit about Kenedy at the end was pretty interesting.

1960: John F. Kennedy

In the first televised presidential debate, Kennedy agrees to wear stage makeup, but Nixon refuses. Although radio listeners say Nixon won, TV viewers favor Kennedy -- and he goes on to win the election.
Anyone reminded of Generation Kill's constant mention of grooming standards?

1943: George Patton

When he takes command of the demoralized II Corps in North Africa, Lt. General Patton orders soldiers to shave daily and wear neckties. Two months later, the Axis desert forces surrender.
"Once the grooming standards fall, all other standards fall!"

Where younger women are concerned, it's a reasonable assumption.

And two, that such clothing would be enough to increase sexual harassment cases, let alone to a point where it inhibits productivity.
It's a weaker assumption, but then maybe the dressed-down men would behave in a more harassing way. As an old survey says. Also, the assumption itself is believed by many.
