Oppressive beliefs

Letitia stripped down to her underwear in the presentation in a bid to fight "oppressive beliefs." According to Chai, she was wearing a blue button-down shirt and jean shorts when her professor questioned her clothing.

Chai subsequently penned a Facebook post, she wrote:

"The first thing that the professor said to me was 'is that really what you would wear?'

'Your shorts are too short.'

The professor proceeded to tell me, in front of my whole class, that I was inviting the male gaze away from the content of my presentation and onto my body."

'She said I was making a statement by wearing my outfit.'

"I told her that I sure as hell wouldn’t change my statement to make her or anyone else feel more comfortable."
