    Nuts and More. . .why do you have to use sugar alcohols? They wreak havoc on my stomach but they look so tasty! (PSA, keep them away from the pooches.)

    So annoyed with the sleeveless thing. Men are required to wear jackets and ties, and we can’t be bothered to put on a cardigan? I get the whole, “this is another standard imposed by men!” thing, but hey, the dress code was the same when Pelosi was Speaker.

            So here’s the thing, I think sleeveless is the wrong hill to die on, because of the points you all brought up. The trouble is dress codes are geared too much toward female attire. Understandably, this is because our clothing has a much wider variation than men’s clothing. But sometimes, the codes are just down right silly and sexist. Look at the new LPGA dress codes. Unreal.

      Preach. The gents don’t get to lop the sleeves off their shirts. No, shoulders or bare upper arms aren’t scandalous – but things like this make me wonder what people consider equal treatment.

      I know, obviously, that it is difficult to find (and therefore ridiculously annoying) appropriate, sleeved dresses. But it isn’t impossible, and a lot of the decent ones truly are workhorses.
