I just saw a girl (maybe sixteen, but she might have even been younger) with her brother, mother and father, having a nice evening out at the Waterfront. They were American tourists. This girl had on, what she would have called shorts. But to even call them an “item of clothing” would have been an overstatement, and they more resembled a denim belt, and a thin one at that. I have seen female underwear that was more modest than those things! She had beautiful, flawless, long, luscious, milky-white legs, that were totally and completely uncovered, leaving nothing for the imagination.
I am not really one to stare at a ladies’ legs, butts, boobs, or whatever, but this girl’s legs were like a sign with neon flashing lights; maybe one that would read “Yes we’re open. Please come in!” but I don’t want to push this sign metaphor too far. Too late I guess huh? I saw grown men…wide-eyed, staring, licking their lips, grinning, drooling, their eyes sucked in to her legs by some sort of magnetic power. I could not believe what I was seeing. I didn’t know what I wanted to do more: take off my shirt and cover that young girl’s legs up, or bang her mom and dad’s heads together.
People say weird stuff like “she is attracting or tempting the rapists”, which might not be far from the truth, but I don’t know about that. What I do know is she was walking around in a public place half-naked. Now, no one ever, EVER deserves to be sexually assaulted, no matter what, period. At the same time I do not believe there is an excuse to be that young, and walk around in a public place with such little clothes on, unless you are at the beach or a public pool. It’s just bad taste in my opinion, and more on the side of the parents in this particular case. Unfortunately, certain things do follow that type of fashion sense.
Ladies, you are always on our (men) case. You want to be treated with respect and dignity, and you deserve to be. But if you are displaying all of your flesh, you will be treated like a piece of meat. And I hate to see that. I’m not telling you to be more conservative, or wear long dresses or pants or whatever, and you can be sure that most men definitely are not telling you that; they are probably asking you to dress like that young girl as a matter of fact. But I am merely telling you just be aware of what you are doing, and if you are putting it out there for all to see, leaving nothing for the imagination, don’t be surprised when you get the disgusting comments, whistles, drooling and gestures that come with it.
