Judge Not

Respecting Craig Anderson’s (thankfully, we are in no way related) freedom of speech and exercising my own, I feel compelled to respond to Mr. Anderson’s ridiculous “Notice to Women” advice he so thoughtfully provided for us. I do not personally choose to wear “gaudy high boots just because the ‘fashion designers tell (me) to.’” But, as an intelligent woman capable of making my own “fashion” decisions with or without Mr. Anderson’s or anyone else’s advice, I am sickened, once again, by males judging what women wear.

Perhaps Mr. Anderson should have a friend video him? I imagine him with overgrown hair sprouting from his nostrils, or pants that don’t quite cover up his entire behind, or maybe he wears baggy sweatpants out and about.

Craig Anderson, unless you are perfect, and I assure you, you are not, find something better to do with your time than judge other people, especially women.
