Good afternoon,

My local crisis center is supporting 'Denim Day' tomorrow as a protest to the Italian court decision to deem a rapist not guilty because the victim was wearing jeans.

Lets get our message out to all.

I wear blue jeans almost everyday, so count me in. Sometime back another judge here in the US claimed that a woman's short hot pants inflamed her abuser's passion, and he was soundly castigated for his decision, though I doubt that you will ever catch me in public wearing hot pants, though years ago I used to wear short cutoff jeans too.

I might do it tomorrow. I wear a suit to work everyday, but I might wear the jeans and the suitcoat, it will probably look weird though...

If I don't do my laundry, I'll have to wear a suit.

Well, I don't care! Today I am wearing jeans and if anybody asks me why, I'll just tell them!

That's right up there with that Iranian cleric who recently blamed earthquakes around the world on women showing too much cleavage. Then of course Jerry Falwell blamed 9/11 on God's anger toward gays and lesbians so I don't discriminate when I say that every faith has its whack jobs. JS
