I can see why those rules are in place. The thing with our American culture is that we expect to be able to do or say whatever we want.
The problem with this is that things get out of hand. Girls start dressing in practically nothing, go out drinking and stumbling home by themselves at night, acting like complete B's to people and getting away with it because they're "just girls".
The pants and the shorts rule is there to stop the downward decline. With dresses there isn't much to see. With pants/shorts there is more to see. You just look elegant with a dress but there is no form really underneath there; and I'm not talking about the "dresses" that modern girls wear to clubs or on a night out. I'm talking about an actual, casual, loose dress.
Your community could have chosen anything as their benchmark, as their "line in the sand". They decided that pants and shorts were it, that's all. I really don't think it's such a bad thing either because of all the nonsense I see out there from some women, like in the examples from paragraph 2.0
