When Brittany Molina, a student at Brigham Young University, was standing around campus on Valentine's Day in a not-even-remotely-revealing floral dress, cardigan, opaque tights, and boots, a random male student handed her a note. She thought it would be something innocuous--you know, like a freakin' Valentine--but she opened it up to find an admonishment of her outfit.
