One town in Lebanon is changing the uniform for their female police officers and the reason is going to blow your mind!
The mayor has decided to change the uniform to allow female officers to wear short shorts to attract Western tourists.
The move isn’t sitting well with many, but the mayor is not backing down.
Conservatives are saying that it’s unsuitable for police work and ‘exposes’ the female officers, Liberals say that it’s wrong to sexualize the female officers while men are still required to wear pants. Feminists are decrying the move as making the young, attractive officers into ‘sexual candies for tourists’.
And you can just imagine the stir from one particular religion that prefers women to cover up from head to toe.
But that’s the point — it’s to separate Lebanon from many of the other countries in the region.
Pierre Achkar, mayor of the town of Brummana, around 10 miles outside Beirut, said the new rules are designed to attract more western tourists.
Speaking to RT, he said: ‘We in Lebanon want to change the bleak picture of Lebanon in the West.
‘Ninety-nine percent of the tourists in the Mediterranean region wear shorts,’ he added.

Brummana recruited policewomen. And they dressed them like that. Look at what their male counterparts are wearing. Are these women supposed to help keep the safety of the city or be the touristic attractions in it? pic.twitter.com/2pbOyncQJg

Just about acceptable if the male officers were also wearing them. As it's only women then it's just pervy, sexist & disrespectful.

"The most beautiful police force in the world" or "inappropriate"?

Some take no issue with the change in uniform at all.
Can someone explain to me how this is inappropriate. Surely if the women consent to this and are actually happy doing it then it really isn't that inappropriate? Right ?

Nothing wrong with this, the police officers seem happy so we should just let then be.

Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
