  • Let me explain that by an example... I worked as toolmaker (steel industry, loud hot and sometimes dangerous...), we had 3 ladies working in my section... two had always a pretty open shirt and primary coloured underwear, coloured nails and always aware to not get dirt on their hands, everyone knew that both had no idea about the work... then there was the other girl, always, oil and dirt on her hands and uniform, never even flirted with a guy, worked the big "gildemeister"... that particular girl said to me that, "if you appear as a slut and act like one, you probably get handled like one... but we're workers here, so I appear and act like a worker because I want to do big things in my life..."

    But thats only one side of a multiple side cause...

    Some men just disrespect every woman, probably caused by history and how the world still works today... controlled by male

    Then there are media (internet, tv, magazines) which always suggest that this behaviour is normal or even their right to get the attention they want... but, most dont realize, thats big part propaganda

    Then there is modern feminism
    I can't say its a bad thing because with that, women get a chance to think about what they want in their life... because a lot got educated like cooking, cleaning an getting pregnant is their job... like back in history...

    Look... from my sight, the problem in your question hasn't anything to do with dressing... its that you assume that a male has the right do disrespect a female caused by the sexualisation he did to himself... so the question is, why think most men its ok to brainfuck (thinking about sexual things without invitation) every women who shows skin, regardless how much...

    And by the way, is there any real reason why women shouldn't not have the right to wear whatever lets them feel sexy?

    • Does that include wearing their thong underwear and too small bra in public without anything else on just because it makes them feel sexy?

    • The question is what/who suggested it to her... it does not matter whats inappropriate in your eyes if we dont understand the "why"

    • @AllieOops It may make her feel sexy but the first association I have as a guy is sex or real life porn. It doesn´t make me want to rape her but I wouldn´t take her serious enough to think of her as a future girlfriend.

  • These kinds of women are suffering from a severe lack of responsibility, self-awareness of their own behaviors. Women know their sexual worth and act ignorant of the effects it has on others. Fewer clothes mean more attention from men, this is a basic reality these women would like to ignore or pretend they are not aware of.

    Childhood abuse of one kind or another is more prevalent in society than most believe. It shapes more of our behaviors then we like to acknowledge and pushes our limitations to the extreme. If you want to make your sexuality and body a cornerstone of your character then don't expect to be treated with the respect a finer woman deserves.

    • Nah. We get attention even if we wear burkhas

    • Totaly agree. women can wear a jean and a shirt but still look decent and cute no need to walk around with butt cheeks hanging out from short shorts 👊

    • @Asker it is our choice We also do not degrade you because of your clothing style. Not everybody has to be like you. In the past women were seen as sluts for wearing decent jean and a shirt.

  • Yes. They hardly have more modest clothing and most women wants to look "sexy" because it often attracts men and others to envy. But men overall will disrespect anybody they want to disrespect sadly no matter what you are, wear, etc. But appearance, reputation, does play a big role. Especially culturally. I don't wear certain outfits that don't appeal to me anyway. All those pics are picture example of sexualization. They want to be sexuallized if it gets them the type of men they want. I am a woman. And even I can hear and see the message they're all presenting.

    I just tell the men who hates it when women dress like that, and I can agree, if you don't like it, don't date them or touch them. That's all. Let them scream bloody Mary all they want. You don't have to be around them, accept them, like them, etc. Be nice, be kind. But don't kiss their behind to get you to like them. Problems solved.

  • No.
    Blaming a woman’s choice of apparel as the reason why a man doesn’t respect her is a total copout.

    For one, respect is given not based on appearance but on actions/merit. If a guy (or woman- as many seem to share views that bare midriff/thighs in public equates to a woman being worthless) decides that’s enough to decide on a woman’s value, that’s a pretty good sign that they were raised in a culture in which women don’t amount to much in the first place. Seeing as how what kind of career/ambitions the woman may have or what she’s actually done/plans to do doesn’t even come into question before the judgement is made.

    • I agree!

    • Preach sista!

    • Ya fam, if I'm walking around in nothing but a diaper, you gotta respect me because my choice of apparel shouldn't affect whether or not I'm worthy of respect. And yes, respect is based on appearance, at least to some extent. If you walk into a job interview and you haven't showered in a week then you'll look like trash and will lose respect. If you dress poorly then likewise it will lower the respect. If you go on a date with a guy and he's wearing sweat pants and a t-shirt with like bbq sauce stains all over it, you're going to respect him less because of it. You may not want to admit it, but appearance plays a large part in whether or not we respect each other.

  • In more extreme situations, yes.

    A lot of it, though, is about the context. What's perfectly fine in a nightclub with all adults could be incredibly inappropriate at a kid's soccer game or a church function. Context is everything.

    I go to BDSM parties, and at these parties, it isn't uncommon for women to wear VERY revealing outfits, or to even be completely naked - but it's a BDSM party in a private home with no non-BDSM participants in attendance. In that context, it's completely fine, and those same women would not dress that way to go to the grocery store or the mall, because it would be inappropriate.

    Wearing yoga pants to work out or do yoga is appropriate. Wearing them to your office job isn't. It's all about the context.

    • THANK YOU 👏🏻. It’s about the time and place. What someone should wear in an adult setting vs a family friendly place and even in an adult environment, the type of adult environment. Women try to dress like that at professional places then get real upset when they’re sent home then want to talk about equality as if men dress like that 🤦🏼‍♀️. There’s a time and place to dress and act a certain way

    • It still does give people the authority to degrade women or disrespect them. What they were shouldn't matter.

    • Lmao, if you think putting the body on display in a sexual way is acceptable in family settings, you’re tripping. There are children in family friendly PUBLIC places which means you have to respect others. I’m a woman and if I choose to wear my tits and ass on display I fully expect people to look at me because I’m clearly dressed sexy, emphasis on the word sexy. I would also never dress like that in inappropriate settings as to not offend anyone and respect. Period. Just remember if you dress like a hooker people will treat you like a hooker. I don’t make the rules, that’s the reality. You can’t expect to dress any kind of way without people treating you a type of way.

  • No i dont think its the reason some men treat them poorly. If a man treats a woman like shit because of how she dresses then thats his problem. He degrades himself so he projects it onto others. Inner issue. However over sexualizing women does not help the case of treating women like objects instead of people.. But women should be able to wear whatever like anyone else without being degraded. Just be genuine.

  • Absolutely. I believe the way someone dresses tells a lot about them. A girl don't need to wear shortest of shorts to feel beautiful. She's cleverly doing it for attention. Girls look attractive in normal clothes too. Like a crop top or a short is fine. But i don't wanna see her walking down the street looking like a stripper. Ther is absolutely no way that no one is gonna stare at you and turn their heads. And then you want to blame all the men for looking at something that's already popping out and is just impossible to ignore

    • Wtf. Who tf are you to be rude and disrespect girls based on their choice in clothes

    • @hi_it_is_me123 i am not being rude or disrespectful. I'm just telling you from a guys perspective. Ofcourse i don't care whatever any girl wears. But don't complain when people stare at you or guys just wanna talk to you cuz you're wearing small clothes. I would never disrespect a girl but i think it's important to tell a guys point of view.

    • It is ok to look at it but to talk in a rude way to these women is not ok

  • I think that if someone judges a book by its cover then they’re a shallow fuck and that is the issue.

  • No. The way someone dresses is not a reason to disrespect them. Men who do that are the problem. Nothing is stopping them from not being disrespectful.

  • Yep! It makes them look like prostitutes. If you are not a prostitute than stop advertising with the way you dress. Of course you also have the Ho's and those looking for a hookup. They are like prostitutes but do it for free.

    • I see the girls giving it free downvoted me. I love it!

  • No. I mean, there is such a thing as bad taste in clothing. Some women do dress like street corner prostitutes. But I don't think revealing clothing is necessarily degrading at all. Women are like rays of sunshine on a cloudy day. They add color to a drab, gray world. Bare legs, arms, shoulders, backs, midriffs, upper chests, cleavages can all be joyful. I love women who are confident and comfortable in their own skin.

  • If a man dressed like he was homeless, would you think he was anything but homeless? The way you dress will affect how people interact with you, this is a fact. Women have decided they want sexual attention, that it validates them and so they dress in a way that shows that, men have simply responded and treated them exactly as women have wished men to treat them.

    • Are you a dog, if dress like a dog

    • @hi_it_is_me123 If you saw some one who dressed as a dog all the time, would you consider them to be normal? Kind of arguing my point there. The fact is you do judge people based upon how they present themselves and arguing otherwise is pointless because we all know that your lying. How do you determine anything about a person? First by how they look and present themselves, then by how they behave, then by personal experiences. If you dress slutty, every one who sees you will presume you are slutty. It doesn't matter if you are or are not, that is the impression you give. If you behave in a way that suggest being promiscous whether or not you are is irrelevant because they don't know you, they don't know whats in your mind, they don't know your past, they don't know your values, they don't know how you feel, all they have is how you are presenting yourself and how you are behaving. If this wasn't the case no type of clothing would ever garner any attention, nor behavior, we would always treat every one completely neutral in all circumstances until personal experiences dictated how we should treat that individual person. That's not how reality works. If you dress up like a police officer and sat in a cop car, why would some one presume that you where not in fact a police officer? They wouldn't. Again, this is common sense and any attempt to argue against it is rationalization for the behavior. You can do it of course, no one is going to stop you, but don't pretend like you don't know what your doing, you do.

    • Revealing clothes are normal. It is your mind, which is not normal

    • Show All
  • No, I don't think it's because of that. Many women have been disrespected by men even though they don't dress in revealing clothes and are more of the modest type.

  • It shouldn't be that way but in reality it is. I have tons of guy friends and I know it but for me, I never judge a woman by the clothes she wears. Usually men do it cuz they are visual creatures. But I believe a girl can wear whatever as long as she's not over doing it.

  • I think it's the media and social conditioning from the Medi that degrade women and teach people subliminally to degrade eachother men and women alike

  • No. Personality, behavior and attitude

  • Those outfits turn me off almost immediately.

  • In a way I can lay fault on both sides here , the women look for attention and the men give it. I think a classy dress can look a hundred times more sexy than any of those photos that said I try not to judge, if a girl/woman wants to wear stuff like this, so be it

  • I blame male fashion designers for not making more sexy clothes to fit guys. then we would be even. they are hard to find. stupid lousy male fashion designers.

  • Insert 'women' for 'men' in your question and it's 100% yes.
    Guys rarely think that though.

  • I think it´s a part of it because clothing is a way showing your character. The way you dress shows the way you want to be seen. No one can control how they are seen by other people. You wanna dress sexy? Fine you go out that but keep mind that sexy is a an adjective originally from sex. You can dress that way if you want a shallow interest because that´s what you get. You can show your body off, but the interest I´ll have is in your body not you as a person. If that´s what you want it´s your choice. That doesn´t mean that it´s ok or your wish to be molested or raped or raped I get that and I would agree on that. But can´t make people all to gether react to your style like you want to. Take for example a rich man walking through a area where poor people live imagine him walking in expensive clothes with a rolex around his arm. What would you tell him if he comes later to you complaining that he´s been robbed?

  • First off, if a man is degrading or disrespecting a woman in general that says more about the character flaws of the that individual. I will add though that for me personally I am going to look initially because women are beautiful. Then I'll start to feel uncomfortable and try to avoid looking and interacting to some degree so my natural reflex to look isn't interpreted as dissrespectful. Its annoying that we have to all interact based on our own assumptions instead of actually finding more evolved ways of communicating our intent. Obviously no one should feel disrespected or degraded but having grown up surrounded by Women. Moms side 6 siblings 2 make dad side 5 he was the only male. I have seen on more than one occasion on a trip to the pool or beach where more skin is shown, an aunt or cousin go off on someone who they weren't attracted to for looking in their direction for too long completely disrespectful. Only to giggle and push each other to go say hi when someone they felt was attractive did the same thing. So am I from a family of sociopaths or does the time you are allowed to stare increase with level of attraction. Not sure how much this relates to the initial question because the level of disrespect and degradation is going to naturally vary individually.
