We tend to use the Internet and view it as a sort of alternative reality where there are no repercussions for our words. After all, it's "just the Internet."

Dress code conflicts announced the beginning of the school year with a bang. Usually, I'd provide an example, but it makes more sense to talk about the Missouri Legislature, where a few weeks ago, a dress code for interns was proposed, to much dismay and no small amount of ridicule.
