Short skirts

I wonder if there's a semantic issue here. It's possible that "short skirts" might have been a maladroit way to say "not ball gowns and not trousers", but it ends up sounding like an injunction to show lotsa leg. While the decision to tell the women what to wear is inexcusable, the resulting furore has been worse because of the implied request for a sex-show.
