Trump Tells Women On His Staff To Dress Appropriately; "Misogyny" Ensues

Ok, first: Trump's an idiot and blah blah blah.
   Though, TBH, we have deeply-entrenched conventions about how to dress, and it's not clear that Trump is out of line here...but maybe.
   And as a side note: no, it isn't "misogynistic." That's some bullshit like "white supremacist." The left always has to up the terminological ante. So 'racism' wasn't good enough. And neither was 'sexism.' Trump's possibly being sexist in all this...but it's bullshit to say that he's misogynist for these reasons. Differential treatment of the sexes is not the same thing as hating women. (Another reason that 'sexism,' like 'racism', is passe on the left: the terms are symmetrical in a sense; they don't single out males or whites by definition. Blacks can be racist (stupid arguments to the contrary) and women can be sexist...but it's weirder for blacks to be white supremacists and women to be misogynists.
   But, of course, inaccurate terminology isn't a bug, it's a feature when it comes to the left.

It's a weird thing to say. Usually such things are announced as 'dress professionally' or 'casual business attire is permitted in back offices.' What does 'dress like a woman' even mean?
