Congress’s Sexist New Dress Code

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Paul Ryan strictly enforces one guideline for women at the Capitol. Cenk Uygur and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you what the policy is. Tell us exactly what you assume in the comment area below.

" According to many reporters, females have been prevented from the Speaker's entrance hall for putting on sleeveless outfits and also blouses. CBS reports that just recently, "a young, female reporter" tried to enter the Speaker's lobby– a space beyond your home chamber where press reporters usually ask legislators inquiries– however was turned away because the sleeveless dress she was wearing "was considered unacceptable since her shoulders weren't covered."

The unnamed reporter, apparently hopeless to simply do her job, "removed pages from her note pad and packed them right into her dress's shoulder openings to develop sleeves," CBS records. Her improvisated attire was still deemed inappropriate as well as she was turned away. A minimum of 3 reporters verified that they had gotten an advising concerning the apparently approximate dress code. One report, Independent Journal Review's Haley Byrd informed CBS that she was kicked out of the Speaker's entrance hall in Might– the very same day Home Republicans passed their health care expense– for putting on a sleeveless dress. On Twitter, two reporters validated that either they or associates had been barred or alerted for bold to bare their shoulders."

    But men have to wear a suit and tie? Why can’t they wear a tank top and shorts? Racist, Sexism, Bigots!

    • Posted by Regina S, at Reply

      Tell the MEN to protest about the suits themselves. No one else who wants to stand up for themselves should be silenced because MEN won’t speak up for themselves.

      First of all, if a man broke the dress code then we can talk about it. That didn’t happen in this case. And a sleeveless top is normal attire for women. We’re not talking about shorts. Boys like you are so insecure. Did little Davey Rubin give you that talking point?

    • Posted by Shaymus Rogers, at Reply

      Sleeveless tops are normal attire for men too….but not at work. I make the girls and boys who work for me wear sleeves…not because I’m a prude or hate shoulders, but because we are at work, I never see Cenk in a tank top.

    • Posted by Janet Williams, at Reply

      John Torres that isn’t right either. In UK there’s a load of crap you have to wear a tie in parliament. Who cares!

    Seriously, if you’re a woman and you’re trying to dress like a skank, well, you can always stop at the corner street to do your job. Dress professionally and shut your mouths.

      that level of unnecessary harshness in tone could get you removed faster than an open toe shoe- let alone your skanky language.

      Who cares? If everything is covered and her style of dress if formal, why should anyone care? We’ve all forgotten the real purpose of clothes, to protect us from the elements and in school or the workplace to avoid distracting folks.

      Savage-American Imperialist. If you dress like a “skank” you might be a Fox News host. I heard you’re required to show a certain amount leg to make the cast.

    Yet Sweden literally has a non man concert coming up. That’s not sexist tho becoz like racism, only men can do it. Or at least that’s how the media reports it.

    • Posted by Tovlyn, at Reply

      +Lefebvre Julien It’s an admirable position to hold that men and women should be treated equally, that much I agree with. But the men will kinda have to prove that they can uphold their part of the deal first. It’s a sad state of affairs when segregation becomes necessary to ensure the safety of attendants. But you can not argue that the symbolic value of equal treatment is worth more than to save women from being raped.

      orderoutofchaos621 You should learn to argue: did you just get sidetracked? the”healthcare” comment is pretty stupid. You come to a child and you ask him: Did you do your homework? and he answers: At least I have a nice pillow. And you start to talk about how the pillow will not last.

    It’s not sexist. If a guy showed up in anything other than a suit and tie he’d be reprimanded too.

    • Posted by Minkki82, at Reply

      It’d be sexist if men could wear the exact same outfit a woman wasn’t allowed to wear. No man is allowed to go report there in a tank top or a wife beater. TYT just loves these “RACIST , SEXIST” accusations. This literally is not sexist.

      +ikeknights But thats an outright lie. . . congressmen aren’t allowed to be jacketless or tieless. . .

      Gay Bottom Pride I have heard about men having to wear ties which I agree is a stupid rule the sleeve thing with women is new. As a woman I don’t want to wind up in the years to come gradually having to wear a burka when I’m out. Just sayin …

    This is literally the rule at the mosques! At least the one I’ve been to. And to the men complaining… men decided their own dress code decades, hell centuries ago! If you wanna change it, no one is stopping you!
    It was really dumb men who were appalled by the romper add, which is great for summer. It is men who complain about men wearing shorts. I think the male employees should demand the right to forgo ties, full sleeves and coats in the summer. That’s just dumb and will cause heat stroke, particularly in DC, in the summer.

      Buddy Van Cigrit How do you get air conditioning to work while walking from building to building? Like the video said, this involves low level staff aswell and they can’t afford fancy cars you know.

    • Posted by Buddy Van Cigrit, at Reply

      Abekrampe I didn’t realize the dress code applied when they’re outside. Where’d you get that from?

    • Posted by Abekrampe, at Reply

      Buddy Van Cigrit They are at work, you think they have time to change while going from one sector to another?

    • Posted by Buddy Van Cigrit, at Reply

      Abekrampe Also every man wears a suit jacket and they don’t seem to be complaining about the heat. Women are stronger than men, or so I’m told, so they should be able to handle putting a jacket over their sleeveless shirts like the men have to.

    • Posted by Abekrampe, at Reply

      Buddy Van Cigrit Maybe they should complain about it, I wouldn’t want to run around all day in a suit, especially if outside.

      Lefebvre Julien How do you know? When my day’s done and I’m no longer required to conduct myself like a professional, I like to wear tank tops because it’s more comfortable, and I’m sure plenty of men would agree.

    • Posted by Lefebvre Julien, at Reply

      + Buddy Van Cigrit Tank tops aren’t sleeveless dresses Buddy, come on now, lol.

      Lefebvre Julien So if my tank top reached down to my knees, that would make a difference how? Come on now lol

  15. Posted by Gabriel Ovsiew, at Reply

    I’d like to consider myself a pretty progressive guy, but during stories like these I can’t help but think of the dress codes that men have to maintain. I can’t say for sure, but I’d assume that the men who attend these things have to wear a suit and tie, or at the very least a dress shirt with slacks, so the whole “it’s hot” argument falls flat on me. The questionably vague authority given to the Speaker isn’t lost on me because guys have been telling women what to wear in America for centuries, but they’ve also been telling other men––this seems like more of an authority problem to me than a sexism problem (again, the sexist undertones are not lost on me). The articles that I’ve read on this story so far have been a little less than compelling for that reason. Is there something that I’m missing?

    • Posted by Ashley Luna, at Reply

      Gabriel Ovsiew So I’ve had to dress by these rules for professional jobs and it’s definitely harder to dress in the summer but it seems to me more a problem of fashion than equality as these rules do apply both ways. The thing is, men’s business fashion does not allow for a sleeveless option and so it’s not an issue. On the other hand woman’s business fashion is much more versatile and sleeveless has become a dominant fashion for blouses therefore younger women might feel this rule to be outdated by the modern business wardrobe.
      I suppose it comes down to men’s business fashion evolving slower in terms of versatility (suit or suite no jacket) and women’s fashion readily providing more summer friendly options.
      I think maybe one day we’ll see men’s fashion evolve to offer other options such as sleeveless but I don’t think the market is there yet.

    • Posted by Gabriel Ovsiew, at Reply

      Ashley Luna totally agree

    • Posted by Lin L. Hendric, at Reply

      Gabriel ask yourself who expects men to were suit and ties in the congress? Who were the ones that force the person that doesn’t wear a tie to were the “tie of shame”? Think about it and then you may realize something…

    • Posted by iamgoddard, at Reply

      Yes, but men are strong and can take dress codes.

      But delicate female flowers wither under the duress of codes.

    I agree, super sexist that both men & women are required to wear sleeves.

    • Posted by Dan Extrinsic01, at Reply

      Ashley Luna hmmn, this is true 🤔 reasonable arguement.

    • Posted by Jaime Duncan, at Reply

      Apparently not at the house, and that is ok. It’s not a law forbidding women from dressing outside the house as they please. Men’s B. Attire does not demand the use of a tie any longer, even so, some places demand it like some restaurants. It’s perfectly fine that the House decided to set an example of equality. The fact that something is normalized does not imply is fair, nor that it’s not sexists.

    • Posted by Jaime Duncan, at Reply

      Dan: The fact that something is normalized does not imply that is fair. They are not passing a law. What is appropriate for a Job is relative to the job, for example in many technology companies flip flops are fine, in many others is not. The argument on the video is “is sexists, as bad as the Taliban”. Guess what: It’s not, and you should not let yourself to be manipulated as easily. They are always justifying violence against boys and men via fallacies. Male B. Attire does not require, in general, a tie this day, but many places still demand it. IT’s a place based rule, not a universal one.

    A summary of this video [so you can skip it]:
    1. it’s sexist that women’s dress code is less stringent than men’s, but not less enough
    2. having a dress code in any setting makes you basically the Taliban
    3. there’s literally nothing you can wear if you a] need sleeves plus b] cannot wear a burka
    4. you have no right to enforce a dress code at work if you wear shorts to the gym

    • Posted by iamgoddard, at Reply

      Anything less than full burka is naked _Islamophobia._

    • Posted by imnotmike, at Reply

      You have to dress appropriate to the place you’re at. Your work dress code doesn’t follow you to places that aren’t your work. You have to follow the dress code for the place you’re at.

      If you work as a stripper, that doesn’t mean you can show up to a court hearing wearing pasties.

      Different dress codes for different places.

      The person in charge decides the dress code for every location.

      Paul Ryan is currently the Speaker of the House – so he sets the dress code. This is a perfectly fair dress code.
