After the Ugandan controversy regarding the miniskirt fever that lasted a week and a few hours Kenyans forgot there needs to chew on facts regarding the increasingly dilapidating fleshy moral standards being showcased on national television during generally viewed shows that include news and one on one interview.
A friend once described a mini skirt as a piece of cloth rapped around the waist just overshadowing the hips, hugging the thighs but neglecting the knees.
This definition clearly brings out the true impression of the Kenyan man’s thought for Kenyan women and their fashion sense which disregards the little and young eyes watching and learning.
A micro mini has its place in society but should it be in the public domain with a backdrop of decaying morals from both genders?
Do we have to switch on the television to ogle frequently on free flesh and crazy dress codes prevalent on our screens or do we have to play ball to changing fashion trends continually decaying our children’s minds and people?
Our young girls matching up there dress codes to mentors on television and our young boys copying trends that are meant to be sophisticated but backward
For us to expect more from our children is for us to show less and act more, opening our democratic space to decide our fashion sense within limits that gives Kenya pride in its genuine, hot and descent culture.
Men are not blind to the desires of women and the impression of Micro Minis and its sister, neither are women blind to the fact that curving your body and showing it all calls for more featuristic desires that are a times untamable.
Maybe we should put up banners of flesh for hire, flesh for lease,# flesh for TV in all interviews assessing the amount of flesh encouraged for our anchors and celebrity personalities.
Or better yet we should engage an expert in fleshonomics to mathematically calculate the variables likely to sell more Ad spots and encourage viewership on television.
To find ourselves in the quagmire called dressing means accepting our trivial selves in the shape of minis and micro minis and curving a niche conforming to our true nature that is Kenyan.
God bless Kenya, God bless our diversity and God help all other countries see the light.
