No pants for you

North Korea's Lil Kim is urging korean women to not wear pants and wear traditional Korean cloths instead, because of the threat of the US on the country. Shunning women in pants as a symbol of a bourgeois lifestyle, North Korea’s communist government is urging them to instead wear traditional Korean clothes, according to a North Korean monthly magazine. “Keeping alive our dress style is a very important political issue to adhere to specific national cultural traditions at a time when the US imperialists are maneuvering to spread the rotten bourgeois lifestyle inside North Korea,” the Joson Yeosung (Woman) magazine said, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. The magazine said exotic dress dampens the revolutionary atmosphere in society and blurs national sentiment, and asked the public to reject clothes that aren’t North Korean style. Instead, it counsels women to wear Hanbok, the bright-colored, loose-fitting dresses that are traditional in the Koreas. and this is not the first time they have acted crazy. Early this year, the North also launched a social campaign against men with long hair, calling them unhygienic, anti-socialist fools. Hehehe. Why are governments so stupid?
