I’m sure there are a number of benefits to wearing a really short skirt, and at the Merryland Theme Park in the Chinese city of Guilin, discounted admission to the amusement park is one of them.

The park is offering a 50% discount to female visitors (18 and older) wearing skirts shorter than 38 centimeters (15 inches) during the months of July and August. As one park employee explained: “We chose 38 centimeters because it is scientifically proven to be the ideal skirt length for making women look beautiful. It’s natural for women to dress light during the summer. That makes this the perfect campaign for our female visitors.”

Well, how can you argue with science?

Of course there are some who are saying this promotion is sexist, “vulgar” and “could put young women in danger.” And I have to agree. I actually don’t think the promotion itself is sexist, but the fact that it’s only open to women. After all, it’s the 21st Century and skirts should be for all:


  1. Yikes!!

  2. In Beijing’s Mcdonald’s, on Wednesdays, males can get a 2nd hamburger for 1/2 the price. The special only applies to guys, not girls.

  3. Since when are skirts for men? Or for “everyone” else other than Irish men and every woman?

    Plus, how is giving a discount to WOMAN for doing something that expresses their FEMININITY wrong? That is one of the least sexist things I’ve heard.

  4. Verux, in response to your query, the unbifurcated garment was actually originally a mans garment. Of course you’ve heard of a kilt. Well, that is nothing more than a skirt with a different name. Have you heard of sarongs, lunghi’s, robes, etc? Guess what. They are unbifurcated garments, aka SKIRTS. If you read the Bible, skirts are in there as well. Alexander the Great wore skirts also. Research it. I’ll even include a couple of links for you. ALL of us have been misled on many things for many years. This is but one of those things.
