I don’t know why I always find myself seriously embarrassed on another’s behalf. At my local shop the other day, wondering why the salesman hadn’t yet offered me discounts for my loyalty, this group of girls walked by and for a minute there, I thought I was fluking a rap video.
The salesman (who still hadn’t given me my airtime and other things I won’t mention) along with a small group of guys seated around a tree had a blast. The girls meanwhile just kept on walking, wearing the tiniest tops and skirts that looked more like belts, unbothered by the glares. Well, they must be heading home from a stroll, I thought.
To my utter shock, as I waited for a taxi at Peyage going to town, I spotted the same offensively dressed girls around Rwanda Social Security (RSSB). There was traffic waiting for the lights to go green and I can swear that even after these cars got to Peyaje, people were literally looking back to get one last glimpse!
Seriously, I’m not old fashioned or bitter, I just refuse to believe that anyone in their right mind would walk out of their house dressed in underwear in broad daylight! Yes, this was as good as underwear!
The worst part is that they were not slim. You see, slim people get away with wearing short or revealing clothing because they don’t have vulgar fat popping out everywhere.
Then they wonder why people mistake them for ‘not so respectable women’! If you dress like a prostitute, it is only natural that people will think you are one. Maybe the west is a corrupt society because on several occasions, I’ve heard girls say they dress so skimpily because that is how people dress in America.
Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is NOT America. There is no reason to make other people uncomfortable just because Rihanna dresses a certain way. There was a time chicks walked around with g-strings pulled out for the world to see. It was just the worst thing to look at! Whoever spread the word that it wasn’t cool must be rewarded!!
You can still look totally fabulous in decent clothing. There is no need to flash ‘boobies’ and cellulite covered thighs all over the place. Yes, weak men will drool but the sensible ones will wonder what the hell is going on!
