37. we disagree on the 'petty-ness'
I do agree they are one sided in the vast majority of cases. Except for the Amish & Mennonites, I think most dress codes apply to women only. We recently had a Mennonite guest to our church and a friend said 'Did you see the hooks on his shirt?' I said what are you talking about? Apparently the old-order Mennonites (more conservative) think buttons are too flashy. That is a little overboard in my opinion, but to each their own.

Why are the rules petty? Because they leave out the concept of male self-control.

I think it takes both men and women. Men are not animals and should be expected to act like civilized creatures. Contain yourself. There is NOTHING a women can wear that justifies any sexual assault, ever. Period. On the same note, I think women should not intentionally wear provocative clothing in order to use their sexuality as a tool to get what they want.
