In a time where modesty is being challenged and victim blaming is being called into question, many are being very vocal on their thoughts about how a young woman “should” dress in order to avoid certain situations.

Singer Erykah Badu has come out in support of a New Zealand school that recently made headlines for telling teenage girls that they should wear their skirts knee-level so that it would not “distract” the male students and teachers.

Ms. Badu was not shy to express her support for the schools expectations of the young teenage girls. The 45-year-old singer expressed her thoughts in a Twitter chat.

“If I had a school I would make sure that the uniform skirt length was a nice knee length. It is fair to everyone,” Badu said.

Badu didn’t stop there. She said dressing in a way to protect young women is realistic because we are all sexual by nature.

While some may feel this is practical, people accused the singer of “victim-blaming” and going as far as to accuse her of men’s rights to be attracted to teenage girls.

“Erykah Badu just went on an entire rant about how men being attracted to young women is ok because “it is his nature,” I’m so done,” wrote one user.

“If you cannot see that Erykah Badu basically victim blamed girls and normalized male sexuality towards young girls, delete yourself,” added another.

Yikes! Are people not entitled to an opinion anymore?
