Lifting the Skirt

    Men should only cover from their belly buttons till their knees, therefor, there isn’t anything wronge about this picture.

    They don’t wear Thobes (white dresses) so they can cover, they wear it because its our traditional uniform, like India, Japan… etc

    I’m only 15 years old and I know that, you should be creative and think from diffrent angles, don’t be negative about every thing.
