The ideal solution would be to allow men to wear shorts to work, yet shorts are not allowed for either gender. That being the case, why are there no other options for men except for long pants? Why do women have so many options when it comes to summer attire? Does it have anything to do with men having hairy legs, do mens legs look that bad - if so that is gender discriminatory.
Its not just to work either, even formal events like galas, weddings, I see women wearing knee-high skirts with their legs open while men are stuck in long pants. Is this not fair gender wise, we all have the same physical bodies that feel hot and cold, etc.
Update: If it is based on fashion trends, then what other options to men have in an office environment. They usually have a dress code that bans shorts. With that being the case, what else would be acceptable for a man to wear to work on his lower half?
