It's about time we stop shaming women for how they're dressed because someone else doesn't like it. Sure, they're are community standards. But this is another ridiculous situation. An Arkansas mall asked a woman dressing appropriately for the weather there (an ungodly hot summer) to leave because she's wearing SUMMER CLOTHES.
The entirety of her post is:
As many of you know, it is NINETY degrees outside today in West Michigan. Aka, really hot. So, of course, I decided to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top. But apparently, how I was dressed (see photo below) was too slutty for the public, as I was kicked out of the Woodland Mall today.
Yup. Apparently some anonymous person reported me to MALL SECURITY for inappropriate dress and I was kicked out.
Never mind that within a one foot radius there were plenty of girls dressed just like me, since it's NINETY degrees outside. I am so angry right now I'm shaking. I felt so embarrassed I almost cried. All because a stranger didn't like how I dressed.
The Woodland Mall should be ashamed of themselves, as well as that anonymous complainer. It's my body, and it's hot outside! I'm not going to show up in jeans and a sweater, sorry. Don't like it? Look away! I was out having a fun time with my sister and next thing I know, I'm out on the street.
Slut-shaming how girls are dressed is deplorable and outdated, and it needs to stop. — feeling angry at Woodland Mall.
