    This woman was kicked out of the Australian parliament for this outfit:

    People often talk about safe spaces and point blame, but really the issue is over-reaction.

    Like this thread title, let's try not to judge too quickly.

    She could cover less, and I’d still be okay with it. This controversy was shooting blanks from the get-go.

    The lower portion of her shoulder is visible. Obviously they should stone the harlot.

    Bring her to Canada! We can legally get her stoned now... and she might like it!

    If she turns to the side can you get a glimpse of side boob? I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that either.

    I always figured this was standard attire for Australian Parliament.

    Then again. I guess they'd wear more formal attire.

    I suggest that all legislative and legislative committee sessions be by law be held with all members and attendees in the nude.

    I'm not sure that Australians can survive a mild Canadian winter.

    Depending on where you are.. It does get cold in the Alps down there. Low temp is -3C/29F, and does allow for some skiing down there. Having lived there and seen snow down there, it does get cold.

    Now, that said, being from Nebraska, I'd have to agree that most couldn't survive what we would call a 'mild' winter, as that 29F would be considered warm for our winters. I mean, I had the hardest time explaining to the kids in school down there about how I had to shovel our way out of our driveway just to get to our mailbox. Thankfully, I brought pictures to prove it. :eek::p

    And look her wrists are showing too! And what is this woman doing wearing pants? She should be wearing a frock. And I think a bonnet would be appropriate too.

    I bet this aide doesn’t doesn’t curtsy either. What an abomination.

    When I read "Low temp is -3C/29F" (and because I watched "Jingle all the Way" recently) I thought of this:

    It's -1C right now in Toronto, I had my jacket open waiting for the train this morning. :rolleyes:

    I bet she's one of those harlots that wants the vote! Why can't she accept her place in society supporting her husband and raising children!?! ;)

    What is funny is it was around 10C/50F here in Coastal Texas this morning and when I went to the store everyone was dressed like they were living in the arctic. Here I am getting funny looks wearing shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops.

    That's how I was when I moved to Las Vegas in January 1998. I moved there from Nebraska to basically get away from the snow. I effectively drove down to Joplin, Missouri, and took Route 66 all the way to Kingman, and up...

    ... First full day of living in Las Vegas, it snowed.

    Granted, 40F and the snow basically melted when it hit the ground, but snowed. I was out in a t-shirt and shorts, while everyone else there was doing their best languid flop impression of Land of Layered Clothing and driving 20mph under the speed limit (hell, they can't handle rain; what makes you think they can handle snow!?), and looking at me as if I'm the one who's weird! :p

    A person I know here was born and raised in Alice Springs, Australia. He says he has had zero problems adjusting to the climate in Phoenix.
