One of the most powerful weapons a woman has and I hate to sound shallow but it's true is her body. They know that. As far as I'm concerned, I don't mind seeing some cleavage or a little ass from time to time. I think most guys would agree. We dance around this topic every day in the work force and we now it and we love it. Or it's just something that we have to deal with. One of the virtues of being a gentleman is self control.

Women want to feel feminine, sexy and desired. Nothing wrong with that. If a skirt does that so what of it. Just the other day there where a group of Nuns walking past my friends apartment and one of them was wearing a skirt cut about 2 inches above the nee. My friend said, "Nice legs." I smacked him in the back of the head. She turned around and said "Why thank you." My friend turned to me and said you gotta remember she's a lady first. I was amazed. Any how

The real issue is partial nudity in the work place. Since when did flip flops become the customary summer time look with a blouse and a skirt? Flip flops are for the beach, gym, hospital, pool, or home, not the office. Ugz with a mini skirt? Wrong unless your 13 or your Sara Jessica Parker.

How about guys who think their waste line is just below the crack of their ass. How does this get addressed?

Any how I think this is the most I ever typed in a comment. Sorry for the rant.

r.dress - thanks for the comments,I think this debate will continue to linger on.
The crux of the article seemed to address the difficulties male bosses have imparting 'advice' to women and their work attire without seeming sexist. Sadly according to the article , women bosses in the same position don't impart that advice themselves for a host of other reasons.
Glad that I'm my own boss , I always seem to say the right things ;)

I will offer no comment on the topic (just to be safe) but I will say you handled it very well... unless the ladies feel differently, in which case I don't care for it, but I think you drew it very nicely.

Can you tell I'm married? Good work, as always!
