Uppity Brits Get Uppity

Good news, everyone! Women of the U.K. have finally be released from their chains of bondage, now that they may wear trousers to a high society event.

Women can now wear trousers at the Henley Royal Regatta everywhere after it changed its “draconian” dress code.

Previously women could only wear a dress or skirt with a hemline below the knee to gain access to the Steward’s Enclosure at the annual event in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

I love the fact the writer claims the dress code is “Draconian.” It would be Draconian if they were forced to wear corsets and hoop skirts. We’re talking about dresses and skirts, which aren’t exactly brutally uncomfortable. Cripes, what the hell happened to England?

For the first time in decades women can now wear trousers and trouser suits.

Regatta chairman Sir Steve Redgrave said organisers believed women should wear trousers if they wished to.

Or, they could stop being uppity bitches and put on a dress. Think about it; this is a prestigious event held by the hoi polloi, so there should be a strict dress code.

Years ago, you had to dress up to take an airline flight. They loosened the rules, and now you’re sitting next to some blue-haired leftist with a t-shirt branded with “F**k You” on the front.

In ten years, the Henley Royal Regatta will look like Woodstock. That’s not a compliment.

  1. My criteria for wearing a dress is someone has to be getting married or buried. I hate dresses. We had to wear them to school and froze our legs off all through high school. I was shocked to get to college and find out we could wear pants. The only day I didn’t wear a dress was Saturday until I went off to college.


  2. Ronni – I hate them, too. I always have to shave my legs first.

    I would classify the Regatta as something where you should wear a dress or a skirt. Other social events, not so much, but this seems like a big deal on Britain.


  3. My mom & grandma thought if they kept me in a dress I wouldn’t hang out with my brothers. Silly women. Climbing trees is easier in a dress.
    I don’t mind wearing dresses unless you tell me I have to.


  4. Cathy – Julia was given a guitar by my brother-in-law. She’s teaching herself, and has an affinity for Queen and heavy metal. She’s practicing Metallica, AC/DC, Zeppelin (Stairway, of course), and other metal songs. She’s wearing concert shirts every day – all black – and wants to be a metal guitarist now.

    She’s actually very good for a 12-year old.
