Controversial activist, Stella Nyanzi reacts to the photos of the Ugandan students facing discipline for their outfits

Controversial activist and lecturer, Stella Nyanzi has condemned plan by Makerere University to discipline two female students who wore clothes deemed too revealing to a school function. See another photo of one of the students and Ms Nyanzi's Facebook post after the cut...


"Policing and punishing adult women for what they choose to do with their bodies in 2017 is appalling archaic misogyny! When are patriarchs going to let women be? If you feel so proper, manly, moral and respectable, please sew all women long opaque sacks to wear in public and save your loins from erecting in response to our exposed raw red-hot bodies.
Imagine the whole Office of the Dean of Students at Makerere University threatening to penalise an adult student for her dress worn to a finalists' party! This followed an inquiry launched by the police station on the university campus. Simon Lokodo's ambiguous Anti-Pornography Act is spreading its poison into free society.
I summon all the goddesses that exist to protect femininity and freedom of (bodily) expression. Women in Uganda need deliverance from the ugly chains of these controlling misogynists! Fuck patriarchy at Makerere University. Why shame and punish an adult for how she chooses to dress at a party."

Stella or whatever she's called should just shut up. How can a sensible woman dress half baked to a school function? Did she think she was going to stripers club? Remember her rights stop where others rights begin. That she has a right to do with her body as she pleases does not give her the right to upset others sensitivities in a formal event. Righs my foot.

Ewwwww, would not want to sit on the chair that girl in red torn clothes have sat on. Imagine the juice from her privates spilling on the chair. No way!

Thank you, Anon. You just spoke my mind. If a female chooses to expose herself this way, I guess it's ok(she is merely exercising her "rights of self-expression" anyway, some will argue....), provided she does so in private, where the sensibilities of others will not be seared. There's a reason we all take a dump in the privacy of our homes, and even there, a toilet is created for such. Same reason we all take showers in seclusion. Same reason we don't put on bikinis to a church function or anywhere outside the beach or swimming pool area. Anybody, male or female, who chooses to walk around semi-nude, is of course at liberty to do so. I and many others like me with the right measure of self-control will, at the worst, turn our faces away and not look. But there are some who live within the society, who are thoroughly twisted, who would follow such persons around until they find an opportunity to satisfy their sick mind's desires.

This one is not a correct Stella. She is a confused, disillusioned and erroneous Stella!!! Better still, advocate of immoralities.

I dont support this kind of dressing even putting it on to club is not good. A woman should look sexy but in a classy way.

There is code of conduct, ethics, self respect and discipline in every society. Even the so-called western world has limit. In any case we must not imitate them in everything. These gals should be suspended to teach others a lesson. University environment is not a porn house. Soon they will start making love inside class and you will say they are 2 consenting adults.
