A Cheaper Taxi If You Wear Revealing Clothes

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2394260/Brentwood-Borough-Council-considers-taxi-fare-discount-scantily-clad-girls-stop-attacked.html

A council is considering urging taxi firms to provide cheaper cab fares for women who wear revealing clothes.

Brentwood Borough Council is considering the bizarre move in a bid to stop women wearing short skirts or low-cut tops becoming a target for sex attackers.

The council is considering discounted taxi prices so that 'provocatively dressed' women can be driven back home and have less of a problem getting a ride.

..

The politician denied that the idea of dropping fares would encourage more women to copy the dress code and added: 'To be honest I don’t think it can get any worse. They can’t possibly wear any less.

How says that this country lacks talent in the political sphere?

So women get to have cheap taxis and the rapists men get to pay more or walk home. Perhaps women should get priority in taxi ranks as well to get away from the horny men more quickly?

Whats the chances that he's moonlighting as a cabbie?

Rephrasing, "Councilman suggests cheaper rides (fnar) for women who show off their norks"

Taxi driver mate of mine who gets the odd offer of such payment often responds with the classic bus/taxi-driver line normally used on those with high denomination banknotes - "haven't you got anything smaller love...?" :)

XYY

Cheaper taxi's for women who wear less clothes? Surely this will just encourage more women to wear less on a night out? Does that not defeat the whole purpose? That is, of course, if you accept that men have no control whatsoever and target sexual attacks on women based entirely on their choice of outfit...

:rolleyes:

A stupid plan.

Is there any evidence whatsoever that women who wear revealing clothing are actually more vulnerable to such attacks? Serious question. I would have thought vulnerability would be due to a wide range of factors; age, size, sobriety, location...
