Yes - I realize I'm not saying this correctly.
My question is not a moral one. Morally I have a very strict opinion about dress codes for both men and women.
My question is a social one. WHY are women seemingly more prone to seek this kind of attention? To that point, thank you sierraleone... your answer is in the direction I'm trying to get to.
I *never* dressed revealing... well maybe when I was two.... I liked to go naked (outside... I sometimes even ran away naked), or with a shoe and a hat on sometimes
I wore somewhat form fitting clothes (never skin tight, *shudders*) but it always *covered*. No cleavage, no shorts even, And usually not even shoulders (but that has more to do with I sunburn easily and/or I never regularly shave my pits
). Heck, I don't even like mid-riff revealing swimming suites, but I think its ok for other people to wear it if they are comfortable.
But I do see guys go around wearing no tops, or open tops, or undershirts, it isn't just girls. Guys wear things that are "cool" just as much as girls. What is cool for guys happens to be baggy pants
I find guy "fashions" though, tend to be more comfortable, whether you are talking about socks, pants, shirts, or something else. A bigger question for me, is not really why women wear such revealing clothes, but why we seem to have to torture ourselves? Highheels, shaving/waxing/etc (men do to, but they don't *have* to, I think there is more pressure for women to have smooth legs/pits... remember when Julia Roberts had a picture with her arm in the air, and she had hairy pits? The back lash was pathetic
), make-up, hair, long nails (which usually only get in the way), tweezing eyebrows, diets.....
