ALMIR COLAN REJECTS HERALD SUN’S FALSE CLAIM ‘CURSING GIRLS WEARING SHORTS’

I was shocked this morning to find the Herald Sun attributing to me a quote that school girls who wear shorts are ‘cursed’. I have never said such a thing and in fact when the journalist contacted me last week, I explicitly rejected the idea that girls are cursed for wearing shorts.

I added that as a father I encourage my children to wear clothes that are comfortable, to engage in sports and to live active lifestyles.

Kids are kids and it is important that we help them to get the most out of play and being active. To say that kids are cursed or anything similar is totally unacceptable.

The context of my discussion with the journalist was about current popular trends and gender differences. It was not about kids and how they should or should not dress.
