I am not a political person and this issue is one reason why. It's so absurd, it's hard to believe that it's become a real issue. Missouri male lawmakers have become obsessed with how women dress during legislative sessions. They really seem to be afraid of female arms. Seriously.

Vogue just shared the story about how Missouri lawmakers are now requiring women to cover their arms. (*blank stare*) If you'd like to either be amused and/or outraged, go read the actual Missouri House rules passed involving this grave violation of all our safety (and yes, that's sarcasm you detect). I've saved you some time and dug deep to find it in their lawyer-written details. It states the following:

At all times when the House is seated, proper attire for gentlemen shall be business attire, including coat, tie, dress trousers, and dress shoes or boots. Proper attire for women shall be business attire, including jackets worn with dresses, skirts, or slacks, and dress shoes or boots. For the purposes of this rule, "jacket" shall include blazers, cardigans, and knit blazers. This rule shall apply to all members and staff on the floor of the House and lower gallery

I realize that I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but shouldn't elected members of any government be more concerned with helping improve the life of regular citizens and not worrying about choices made in a closet at the start of the day?

No matter whether your political views are supported by a donkey or elephant, surely there are better ways for a governing body to spend their time. Change my mind.
