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.

'Hands-off-Helen' (Mirren), a Dame and a certified feminist with usually very clever and measured things to say, got all iffy and bristly last week when she expressed a strong distaste for snug embraces.

Gay men need to stop perpetuating misogyny and ally themselves with the feminist movement.
