Below is an article link of interest:
"Why I wear Skirts all the time"
I know you must have been googling away looking for something to support your argument, but did you actually read the article or the site it comes from before you posted it here? It's like something from the nineteenth century. Just read the 'about me' bit:
"I am my sweetheart's wife and mama to five children age 9 and under. When I'm not homeschooling, cooking meals, changing diapers, or doing yet another load of laundry, you will find me here as I share my heart concerning modesty, femininity, and mothering."
We are not exactly talking liberated, professional woman here. Or maybe that's how you really think women should be.
Wow, where to begin? This article is filled with undercurrents of homophobia and religious and societal oppression. The fact that it is written by a woman doesn't make it better. It just means she has bought into it.
One of many great quotes from the article:
"and I also don’t want to appear that I’m condoning women wearing jeans"
I think we're being trolled.

I gotta say...that woman seems surprisingly well adjusted given her views.
I did not read anything hateful in her opinion. She appears to be very respectful of others while describing her preferences.
Nobody would win a lawsuit based on an employer ordering female employees to wear dresses. It is historically gender appropriate.
If it is illegal to set attire standards then how does Hooters order female employees to wear tiny tight clothing that is sexualized?
What attire is more modest? What attire is more professional?
Well, sans the implications towards homosexuals, I agree. As I said, surprisingly well adjusted.
I think it is because they argued that it was essential for their business. Part of what they sell is scantily clad women serving you beer and wings. I don't think Bank of America could make that same case.
I stopped reading when the Homophobia began in that article.
Describing something as "disgusting" is not respectful. The article writer is a bigot. Heaven help her children should one of them turn out to be gay.
Hilary was denied the right to wear skirts in the White House....
Her balls were showing.
Really? Describing gay people as disgusting is respectful? You're either a joke, or sad.
I'm assuming he was referring more to the general crux of her argument in the article overall and how she was responding to people who disagreed with her view, not so much her thoughts on things that only were tagentially related despite her effort to spend a sentence tying them in.
Your intelligence is admired and noted.
