The original post hit a nerve with me, and so I decided on yet ANOTHER epic rant. Whoo!
"Ladies, you know darn well that when you put your Bazooka Joes on display, you want us guys to notice. You don’t have to admit to it, because it’s a no brainer for us to figure out. If that weren’t the case then why in the world would you put them on display?
Then there are the tight pants and short skirts."
Ever heard of a period, guys? Monthly cycle? On the rag? Constipation? Bad hair day? Water retention? Monster zit? Let's swing back to Auntie Rosie ONE more time. My point is, that girls generally have days where we feel flat-out NASTY. REPULSIVE. And here we are, expected to be pretty the majority of the time. Well, boys, how do most ladies fix that feeling? How DO we put that extra spring in our step?
We wear make-up. We cover our bloated tummies with a tunic, that by the way, goes much better with skinny jeans or leggings (aka TIGHT PANTS), because IT BALANCES OUT THE SHAPE OF AN OUTFIT. We sometimes throw on a pair of heels just to look in the mirror before we leave the house, and instead of feeling like crawling into a hole to die, we get to say "Hey, sexy!" and give ourselves a wink!
"I’m not going to lie to you: when I see a woman in tight pants or a short skirt, I’m going to sneak a peek."
Have fun with that! Take your time! If you're sneaking a RESPECTFUL peek, most of us will find it flattering. But be aware: There IS a difference between a peek that says "I think you're cute", and a peek that says "I am imagining putting my penis in places where you'd likely prefer it didn't go, and by the way, please say something so I can just get an IDEA of what your moaning sounds like!" Get it?
"After all they’re putting the best features of their physique on display. The purpose of putting something on display is so it can be admired. Am I right?" NO, YOU ARE WRONG. Do ladies like to be admired? Usually. Once again, there is a DIFFERENCE between enjoying the aesthetics of a womans' curves and making a P0RNO in your head! The latter, indeed, deserves the title of Pig. In most cases, women don't walk around staring at your crotch, now do they?
Now by no means do I condone disrespect, but understand that a guy is not going to be eye-to-eye with you if your boobs are in his face. That’s just real talk.Now I understand that some of you want to show off, but know that you come across more confident and frankly more attractive when you’re covered up. By being covered up, it lets our minds just wander, and it also shows us guys just how comfortable you are in your own skin by dressing appropriately. That is when you truly display your assets."
My FAVORITE point of all: The author of this post can't seem to make up his mind. Is this about women's clothes fitting CORRECTLY, or the lack of fabric associated with provocative attire?
The fact of the matter is, WOMEN'S CLOTHING IS FORM FITTING UNLESS IT IS MATERNITY WEAR, AND EVEN THEN, THAT'S BETTER SUITED TO A WOMAN'S SHAPE WITH EVERY PASSING SEASON!
Look at skinny jeans, leggings: form fitting. Bootcut jeans: fitted through the hip and thigh! T shirts: not skin tight, but yo, the boobs pop out, and it's NOT our fault! Pencil skirts, sweatpants, shorts (EVEN with a 5 inch inseam), dresses . . .
Unless men expect us A-F cups to wear our old AA training bras to flatten our chests, buy 3X T-shirts, and buy our jeans 5 sizes too big and wear a belt to hold them up, then sorry, it's YOU who needs to control YOUR eyes, and put them back in your head. Our boobs pop out because WE ARE WOMEN, AND WE HAVE THEM! That is NO excuse to stare at our chests when we're speaking to you (or walking down the street).
Don't get me wrong, at 4'6 there are skirts I own that I feel uncomfortable walking out of the house in, and usually change out of, thinking the whole time "WOW. Ok. This thing is this short on ME?! And it was made for girls about a foot taller?! HOW do they hide their assets?!". There are times I go NUTS looking for a safety pin trying to hide my cleavage in a low-cut top. And yet, there are rules I live by and outfits I love that I don't deserve to be told, in so many words, not to wear, because I'll look like a skank. Oh, yes, I DID see your point there!
I will not wear thigh high boots with a skirt, EVER. Shorts and tights? Yes. Skinny jeans? Even better.
I WILL wear my FORM FITTING pencil skirts, that are knee length or longer, by the way.
I WILL wear dresses above my knee! It's NOT 1900 anymore, and as long as I can pick up a dropped pen without giving people a peep show, then WHO CARES?!
Gentlemen, women's clothes WILL show off a physique. That is how they are made. Revealing is revealing, but guess what: if we were to walk around in our bras, it'd be the same as men walking around in the summer shirtless. Women are HUMAN. Women are WOMEN. Women are expected to live up to the standards of society: be beautiful, but don't dress like a hoochie! Be a lady, but be good in bed! Be an equal, but get paid less for doing the same job.
I don't care if a girl walks into a mall in pasties and a G-string, she STILL deserves to be respected as a HUMAN BEING. So keep drooling over your Bunnies and Budweiser Girls, giving us the idea that THIS is what we're supposed to be, and then shaking that finger in our faces GOD FORBID we take PRIDE in ourselves, in our bodies, and in WHO AND WHAT WE ARE.
We should NEVER have to apologize for that. The title of this post, perhaps, should have been changed to "I'm Looking at Your Cleavage Because Your Daddy Put It There When His Sperm Decided to Make You a Female".
In your eyes, what is the difference between a woman dressing provocatively and dressing nicely? Is form-fitting just as bad as revealing? What is the happy medium between how most women dress and resorting to a burlap sack?URL: http://vixen-with-a-cause.xanga.com/734183912/re-im-looking-at-your-cleavage-because-you-put-it-there/
