All wrapped up in silliness

I am actually in favour of a change in our national school uniform design.

My kids are wearing the same kind of clothes I wore to school more than 20 years ago, and that ought to be enough reason for the fashion police to make an arrest, don't you think? ;)

And someone from an association I've never heard of before (until this came out in the news) thinks our school uniforms are too sexy for our young sirens, oops I mean girls.

National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia vice-president Munirah Bahari's wise quips:

"The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction. This could see them getting molested, having pre-marital sex and all sorts of things. It becomes a distraction to men, who are drawn to it, whether or not they like looking at it."

"All this leads to babies born out of wedlock and to an extent, even prostitution."


"This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them."

Can someone file a police report for slander against men in general and our schoolgirls in particular?

Or should we just give in to this fear mongering and redesign our school uniforms to look like this:-

No wonder she's such a close minded b**ch. Plain as the brown paper used to wrap nothings.

while i dont agree it will lead to sex... the skirts have certainly gone shorter and the top... more transparent.

i tot the baju kurung is very comfy for students...perhaps they can just swap the colors...u know blue on top....The pinafore is kinda ugly though. :) But i like what i wore last time. All white!

Blaming a school uniform that has been worn for years is just so totally absurd.
