NCFM Member Caleb Papp, Feminist Thinks JC in JC Penny stands for “Just Complain”

shorts jc pennyFeminist Thinks JC in JC Penny stands for “Just Complain”

A couple months ago an article ran about a girl being sent home from JC Penny for wearing “too revealing”shorts. But that was the slant she put on it. In reality JC Penny simply doesn’t allow anyone, male nor female, to wear shorts to work. That of course means that she wasn’t sent home because the shorts were revealing, but because they were shorts. And who cares she bought them in the store, JC Penny can’t sell shorts for people who’s career allows shorts? We should take no surprise that a self identified feminist would twist the situation like that, at least I don’t. All too often I’ve seen the twisting of data to fit what feminists want and to be fair what any political group wants. But what really caught my eye was the fact that despite this being a gender neutral issue a heated debate was launched over women’s apparel in the work place, not everyone’s. Why was this not simply a debate on dress codes in general? In our modern society we’re so worried about women and pampering their preferences that, aside from making mountains out of mole hills as here, we disregard when issues should be spoken of broadly.

If you watch the video on you’ll see that the news casters even recognize that it’s not a gendered issue. That however won’t stop them from making it into one by asking if dress codes are too harsh on women and not if their too harsh in general for everyone. What about men? I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty tired of hearing a general issue brought up but only how it impacts women discussed. Granted, these are first world problems but they’re only addressed for women in general and if they’re going to be discussed they should be for everyone. I don’t know about you but that is suggestive as to who is really entitled and empowered in our society and it’s certainly not the men. I think feminists must think JC stands for Just Complain!

    Dress codes are always much stricter for men than for women. Many men are still forced to wear what is effectively a school uniform (suit, dress shirt and tie) for the whole of their working lives, whilst women can dress pretty much how they like. Women often complain that they are criticised more than men for what they wear, but that is only because they have choice: you can’t criticise a man for wearing a compulsory school uniform. It is about time that the law banned gender-specific items of dress code, such as the compulsory (for men only, of course) tie.

    JC Penny should bar employees from wearing shirts or underwear so that customers can enjoy watching really hot lesbian employees make out in the name of FREEDOM!

    Happens on the other side of the Atlantic as well. Some years ago, a Civil Service department allowed females to wear whatever they liked smart or casual (skirt, dresses, jeans, trousers, blouse, T-shirt etc). Male employees were required to wear trousers, shirt and tie. The issue went to court and was found to be discriminatory against males. The government department, using taxpayers money, took it to appeal. As far as I can recall, the decision was overturned on appeal.
