Erykah Badu probably lost a few fans last night after her Twitter rant about the length of skirts on girls.
Badu said it was “natural for a heterosexual man to be attracted to a young woman in a revealing skirt” and said if she had a school, she’d make girls wear below the knee skirts to keep from attracting the attention of boys and male staff.
“There was an article ruling that high school girls lower their skirts so male teachers are not distracted. I agreed because I am aware we live in a sex–driven society‚” she explained.
I agree.We are sexual beings .
We should consider everyone.
Young girls are attractive. Some males are distracted. https://t.co/q6N7bpxO0Z

Of course people fired back at her tweets:
asking women to adjust their actions to compensate for the lack of self-control & "desires of men" is a first commandment of patriarchy

Erykah can take her 3 dollars and 6 dimes and get the fuck out of here with that bullshit that she's talking.
