My sister took a video of some cicadas today near Red Hook, NY.
Male Swedish Train Conductors Wear Skirts In Protest
No doubt, there’s a few raised eyebrows in Sweden today.
Commuters on a train line in northern Stockholm were met with an unusual sight this week: male train drivers and conductors wearing skirts to work.
Train driver Martin Akersten said he and more than a dozen others at the Roslagsbanan line have started wearing skirts in the summer as a protest against the train company’s uniform policy, which doesn’t allow shorts.
The 30-year-old said the response from customers has been only positive.
Arriva, the company that runs the train line, said they want their staff to look “nice and proper,” but cannot stop men from wearing “women’s clothes” if that’s what they want because it would be discrimination.
