Dear Abby: She lifted my husband’s kilt, and he got in trouble

DEAR ABBY: I married a proud Scotsman a year ago who often wears kilts.

When we go out, women think nothing of coming over and lifting his kilt, which exposes him to anyone who has a visual advantage. These women scream with glee and then become physically aggressive with their hands.

Frankly, I am shocked and horrified anyone would do this.

Now, every time a woman does it, we immediately call the police and report the crime. The perpetrators are then shocked and angry that they are being arrested for a sex crime for something they thought was innocent fun and games.
