R&B Singer Erykah Badu sparks outrage with school girls comments

| April 12, 2016

Erykah-Badu-Bashes-Iggy-Azalea-On and on, indeed. In a long-winded Twitter rant, R&B legend Erykah Badu stated that girls should wear long skirts to school so as not to distract male teachers.

“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 I-driven society …” she wrote on Monday, April 11. “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, who is the mother of two daughters, Puma, 11, and Mars, 7, felt compelled to voice her opinion after reading a news story about a New Zealand school that forced female students to wear conservative skirts that fall below the knee.

“It is everyone’s, male and female’s responsibility to protect young ladies,” she continued. “One way to protect youth is to remind them we are sexual in nature and as they grow and develop it is natural to attract men.”

However, the singer, 44, contradicted herself several tweets later by saying that her daughters should be able to “wear what they like, yet be aware.” She then reverted back to her initial argument by writing: “We are sexual beings. We should consider everyone. Young girls are attractive. Some males are distracted.”
