You seem quite put out by the idea that it might not be OK to tell women they should wear short skirts and heels to a work do.

I'd suggest that the issue isn't that the world's generally gone mad and is getting upset over every little thing, but that you're simply perceiving that to be the case based on very little.

If you actually read the story, you'll note that at least one of the people objecting is in the group that were told to wear short skirts.
