Ablow Steps in it Again

From Media Matters:

 Serial Sexist Dr. Keith Ablow at Fox strikes again!  In a recent discussion (where one of the female talking heads struggled to pronounce the word decorum) on an Illinois middle school having a battle about the wearing of leggings by female students, Ablow gifted us with his view:

ABLOW: You cannot come in with leggings. Because my son wants to learn and the truth is it is distracting. And it is kind of inappropriate because when did we decide as a culture that tights would become an overgarment instead of an undergarment. The reason we're doing that is because girls are in a panic to be more and more sexual because we've taken all the restraint away from femininity. We've made girls into boys.

The obvious question: Why isn't this kid being home schooled? If Mrs. Ablow isn't up to the task, surely Fox pays Ablow enough to send the little nipper to a private boy's school, where he (probably) wouldn't struggle so with the attire of his classmates. 

Also, could someone please point out to Ablow (such an apt name) that this is exactly the kind of thinking used to justify the wearing of burkas? This is the same old "the woman, she tempted me" bullshit that we've been hearing since Jesus wrote the Bible.
