moncler outlet sale cheap moncler outlet I believe in a woman’s right to wear whatever the hell she wants, (though if it’s Crocs there’s very little I can do to defend you). I also believe in a woman’s right not to be judged by what she wears. Remember Chrissie Hynde’s statement on the issue? ‘If I’m walking around in my underwear and I’m drunk? Who else’s fault can it be? If I’m walking around and I’m very modestly dressed and I’m keeping to myself and someone attacks me, then I’d say that’s his fault. But if I’m being very lairy and putting it about and being provocative, then you are enticing someone who’s already unhinged don’t do that.’ cheap moncler outlet moncler outlet sale

moncler outlet cheap moncler jackets sale The word ‘modest’ is semantically loaded. It implies being demure, virginal, pure and meek. All things that women historically have been encouraged to be.

cheap moncler moncler factory outlet What Caroline hits on here is, I think, what I found automatically uncomfortable about the idea of ‘modesty’.
