Anonymous asked: To explain further, it has nothing to do with sexism or anything, because I'm pretty much all for equality. It's the fact of how most women carry themselves, which plays negatively on the entire female gender as a whole (kind of how like the bad religious people get noticed more than the kind loving ones) If guys see a girl dressed like that, they're going to assume they can get sex and only like her for body. Where as if she dressed less so, she may find a guy wanting her for her.
“To explain further, it has nothing to do with sexism or anything,
Oh darling, but it does. Although the words don’t technically say it, the whole picture / meaning / thought behind the image are steeped in sexism.
I have NEVER (However, if you could provide substantial evidence other wise) seen anything about MEN having to / being asked to / shamed to change what they wear because it might “attract devil minded women”.
These staunch messages of what is “immodest” and “appropriate” in the nature of women, are constantly berated nearly exclusively to girls starting from a young age (I.E. Slut shaming). It is generally frowned upon for women to have multiple partners, have sex in general or to dress “provocatively”.
What about men? Hm? Have we not seen men (in media or even in real life) who brag about “scoring” or “Getting some from more than one”. I don’t ever think I have seen a man getting shamed for what he was wearing. But perhaps there are cases out there, but it tends to be reserved for females.
So don’t give me the bullshit of “it has nothing to do with sexism”
Side note unrelated to this Anon, I didn’t appreciate the word choice of the image. “Dear girls” as the beginning and end being “From real men”. It’s undermining. The word choice of GIRLS and MEN bother me. We are not GIRLS. We are WOMEN, you asshole. I can make my own choice on clothing, as I am not a little GIRL. Once again, this was not directly to you Anon, but to the picture itself.
What you are suggesting is that women who dress “indecently” should expect to attract “pigs” and the behaviors that come with those types of men. I should also say that it parallels dangerously close to the idea that women who “dress immodestly” shouldn’t be surprised about getting raped (I.E. victim blaming due to clothing choice). If they hadn’t dressed like “sluts/whores/whatever” they wouldn’t have received the attention, like RAPE, that they did.
Please note Anon, I am aware that you did not say that and I’m sure you’re an upstanding citizen that is against rape, I am merely commenting that the ideals are dangerously close and that once again the wording in the image is very much up to debate
because I’m pretty much all for equality.
Your anonymous ask says other wise. Why do you hide behind it? Are you in fear of your own opinion? Should you feel the need to explain, you’ll probably note that the anonymous feature has been disabled on my ask. But feel free to reply regardless..
It’s the fact of how most women carry themselves, which plays negatively on the entire female gender as a whole (kind of how like the bad religious people get noticed more than the kind loving ones)
I understand the simile that you are trying to convey. Although religion is not comparable as it encompasses a wider array of people. This subject of women is all on it’s own. Please inform me about how most women carry themselves today, as I am interested in a good laugh.
People, regardless of gender, are going to do what they will. And they should. It is their life and they are going to live it as they see fit, and they should be happy with the choices.
Personally, I was not put on this Earth with the sole purpose to judge other women on what kind of top they’re wearing. Seriously, I’ve got better things to do. If people opposite of my views think of the low top wearer as beneath them, then those adverse people really need to re-evaluate what is important in life.
Which by the way anonymous, what gender are you? As this does matter to how I can understand your view point.
Has your gender been oppressed for hundreds of years? Have you experienced the misogyny that I have? Have you experienced the fear and the shame of being called a slut for just wearing short shorts?
If guys see a girl dressed like that, they’re going to assume they can get sex and only like her for body. Where as if she dressed less so, she may find a guy wanting her for her.
Have I covered this? I feel like I covered this already. None the less..
Why is it a woman’s responsibility for what happens in the man’s pants? It’s the man’s thoughts that are to blame. HE should know better. It’s the male entitlement.
A partner should love you for mind and body, be tolerant of your flaws and love you no matter what.
I hope this has not been too burning for you, Anon.
