    Clothing that hurts feelings... No more...

    Atleast they're not burning books like those hard right Republicans in the US because their feelings were hurt..

    Earlier this month, social media videos showed a man in the southern city of Shenzhen being questioned by police for livestreaming himself wearing a skirt, triggering a discussion about individual freedom of expression.

    Many online commentors agreed with local law enforcement's decision to intervene, with one saying the man's behavior was "offensive to common morals".

    Like most people AFP spoke to on the streets of Beijing, He interpreted the revisions mainly as a reaction to incidents involving people wearing Japanese clothing in historically significant places or on memorial days.

    In 2021, the state-backed tabloid Global Times said a woman was "severely criticized and educated" after she wore a kimono in public on December 13, the national Remembrance Day for victims of Japanese war crimes in 1937.

    And last year, a woman said she was detained during a photoshoot while wearing a kimono in the eastern city of Suzhou by police.

    I think that @freeier's point is something along the lines of 'a stylized Union Jack in studs is as inflammatory as Nazi memorabilia'. Or something similarly sensible.

    The photos where badly chosen... I suspect the issue has more to do with Japanese kimonos being the same as swastika armbands.

    Offense is in the eyes of the beer holder...
