79. They see women making an attempt to look nice and think it's some kind of an invitation.

It is not.

It really is that simple.

And this applies not only to women dressed up in sexy outfits. This applies to any woman wearing anything.

None of it is any signal to any man that she wants anything to do with him, or any feedback from him on the way she looks in whatever clothes she chooses to wear, or on however she chooses to alter or not alter her body hair.

The idea that women in public are somehow inviting anything, whether commentary or actions, is abhorrent IMO. Men are not treated this way. There's no analogy for men at all, that I know of... and IMO that pretty much says it all.


On that subject:
