Thank you, Tyrman.  If other males are in the thread - I'd like to know how many of them also find women walking around in various states of undress "sickening."
I'm not sure if I would call it "sickening" but I definitely don't find it very attractive. Sometimes less is more. Erm...that didn't come out right. :look: :D  What I mean is sometimes the less skin shown, the better. I'm not saying I think women should walk around in space suits :p but some things are best left to the imagination. :)

^^ Understood.

I would also suggest that sometimes men react fairly negatively to the WRONG woman dressing revealingly - and for that reason grow annoyed with the whole affair.  (I guess this is my flip side to Delvo's male-frustration theory.)

I suppose that could be true, but definitely not true in my case. :)

Also do you think you could clarify what you mean by "wrong woman?" I think I follow but I just want to make sure. :)

Women in those places don't wear the restrictive clothes, though.
Whats your definition of restrictive? And/or restrictive compared to the guys? Though, I might be wrong, I admit. And there are some cultures where guys were "skirts" or robes. So it doesn't have to do specifically with girls. Or do in those cases/cultures did they not know how to shape clothes??

*moves cat from infront of the computer screen*

I call anything clothes that is long and hangs/dangles freely restrictive in one way or another (skirts, dresses, sleeves that go halfway to the floor, unfasioned shawls, etc).

Though I think in some cultures, higher class women seemed to have had it worse. Most of my knowlegde is with English culture though.
