Women in Paris can finally wear trousers

17 posts in this topic

A 200-year-old law forbidding women to wear trousers in Paris has finally been revoked.

On January 31, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, France's minister of women's rights, made it officially impossible to arrest a woman for wearing trousers in the French capital.

The law required women to ask police for special permission to "dress as men" in Paris, or risk being taken into custody.

Ahh... the French.

Better late than never; however, I think these two might still be on the books:

It is illegal to sell dolls with alien faces – they must have human faces.

It is illegal to land a flying saucer in a vineyard.

(Did you know that in 1954, during the height of the “alien invasion” craze, an appellation in France passed a law making it illegal to land a flying saucer in a vineyard? Imagine crossing the galaxies to another planet, only to get a parking ticket once you landed. No wonder the aliens never stay!) [source: http://www.moonstonecellars.com/radio/?p=90]

Silly law and one that definetly needed up-dating, but, personnally I like to see woman in dresses. Its so much more feminine (and sexy)

Easy ladies, just my opinion.

So, does this also mean that, in France(apart from theater performance), men are allowed to wear dresses? :w00t:

There are so many outdated laws on the books everywhere that if the cops had it in for you they could still arrest you to this day over them. At least France got rid of one here.

I would love to see a vid of a drunken ET UFO pilot.

Or is that why some so-called UFO's have erratic flight patterns?

Bet those Roswell ET's first landed in a vineyard in France and then crashed in the US. :passifier:

My favorite 'odd' law is from Chino, California... It is against city ordnances to detonate a nuclear weapon within the city limits... There is a $500 fine attached...

$500, is that all, seems a bit low.

Does anyone know how many people have these nuclear weapons stored in their shed in Chino?

Have you been to Chino?... $500 would about cover the damages...

Anybody would think they wanted a nudist colony in Gay Paree.

Though I would prefer that to any country that incorporates Sharia law.

Though there's nothing wrong with trouser suits especially in the world of high finance and business.

It's good because they are not showing cleavage because these sexual harassment suits can be hell.

It must feel very liberating for these women and a reminder of their bra- burning fom their hippy heydays.

What? You thought it just happened in the States.
