I noticed most of the women nowadays wearing short shorts and tube clothes and etc. They are exposing there selves in danger. Danger of rapists, bad people and criticism of people surrounding them. I agree they have good body and skin. But it is necessary to flaunt what they have? In my opinion, you don't have to expose your skin just to be say your sexy or beautiful. Dressing elegant one or dress which shows shape of body might be a good idea. And much more beautiful if you have brains. A good conversation is can also be considered sexy. Would you agree with me?

I suppose it does not have to do with out we dress but how we carry ourselves. I feel that there is a time and place for everything and no excuse for anyone to be harmed.

I have to agree. Even if a woman is dressed sexy hoping to attract a "mate" that does not give any man the right to rape her. Period.

i also agree with you ladies, it is a matter of how one carries the attire. and no man has the right to rape women.

No I do not agree. If women were forced to cover every inch of their bodies so nothing of them could be seen they would still be raped. It does not matter if the woman is young and sexy or old and ugly, they will still be raped as long as there are men who want to attack women. I wish men would stop blaming women for rape and start blaming the men who do the attacking.

Hello syoti20! Don't get me wrong but sometimes, we have to flaunt ourselves and wear sexy dress in order to feel good about ourselves. We have different opinions but I hope you will not take this against me, lol! For me, as long as you do not hurt someone or insult somebody, you can wear a dress you want. Cheers!

Hi syoti: I don't agree with you. Is it me or are you blaming some of the girsl that have been raped because they were wearing short shorts? Even if I consider that girls should chose closely what to wear, there's no excuses for a rape. If a guy rape a girl he's guilty, there's no excuses. And second, I consider that sometimes being elegant or having a good conversation is more sexy than wearly barely anything but everybody can wear whatever they one. In this case, it's on the girls prerogative to decide what they want to wear. I hope you understand my point of view. Thanks anyway for starting this very interesting discussion. ALVARO.

Hello syoti, Its not a bad idea. It is to those who think it bad has the bad idea at all. Wearing clothes according to your taste, fashion and comfort and needs doesn't mean exposing yourself to danger but wearing them in alignment of your location. Give consideration of what, where, who, and maybe when in choosing and selecting clothes to wear. You cant wear like shorts or sleeveless blouses whenever your in an Islamic areas or anywhere that practice conservative tradition. There are avenue also that can encourage you to show of your physical assets. Statistics of rape victims doesn't concluded to have a relation to wardrobes. Usually men chooses girl to be a lover at first according to their eyes and as they get along together it will change to higher level this means discovering the true sexy beyond what the eyes could see. Happy Mylotting my co sexy mylotters!

I would agree that if you are going to live in a country that is predominately Muslim then you might want to follow the dress code. However, here in the US we have a high Muslim population and even I don't follow their dress code. I've seen women at the mall in Burkas and even if they do look at me and I at them neither of us are going to do anything to each other. Men do not rape for physical pleasure nor because they've fallen in love with someone. They rape for pure domination. Namaste-Anora

I respectfully do not agree with you. These women are not asking to get raped with the way they dress. Anyone who thinks that is seriously misinformed. During the summer I wear shorts and tank tops and on the beach I wear bikinis; I've never been attacked or raped. I went to a topless beach in Barcelona. Men get to walk around shirtless; why can't women. It's not a big deal there and it shouldn't be such a big deal here. It's all in the culture you grow up in. Only in certain Muslim countries do they physically attack women who show too much skin. That's completely uncivilized, but maybe you want to move there?

You are right,the wearing style is just a habit or a cultural behavior,and the happening of rapping or sexcual offending is just due to the issue of individual quality,so dressing what is the right of everyone,we have no right to criticize them!

I don't agree to your point. I believe in the phrase " If you have it you Flaunt it". By God's grace someone has a very sexy body and very good skin. The person would surely not hide it under loose and long clothes. Sometimes the person has to show what they have. A good conversation is surely sexy but do you think that someone will like to converse with a person who cover's her up despite having something very Important.

I think that a woman should be able to dress however she wants. If the man can't handle it and thinks it is a bad idea then oh well....that would be his problem. If he can't see beyond the skin and have a decent conversation with a woman in a short skirt then it is him with the problem.And as for rapists? they don't just target women who dress skimpy. They target randomly whoever. And why would we blame the woman for a man that can't control himself?

I like the idea of wearing clothes for comfort and utility rather than as a lure to the opposite gender. I wear shorts and etc, but not provocatively. Most people are more alluring if they are wearing a certain amount of clothing than not, I think. I have heard many men say regarding scantily clothed women "Ewww, she should put it back on!" Not everyone looks good undressed ;-)

There are more than one way to be sexy. Showing of skin is definitely sexy and it's been proven since the early days till now.. haha =D While being able to carry a good conversation is sexy too, but not many guys knows how to appreciate that.. lol =D Same like girls, man only believe in what they see, so in this case, more skin exposed, the sexier girls are.. lol =D

I really agree with you. Women nowadays flaunt their skin by wearing those kinds of clothes. I think being sexy is not just having beautiful body, but you should love yourself and being able to wear what is right. Women who wears those kinds of clothes should be aware because not all people want to see them wearing clothes like that. Men too do not want to see women like that because they feel that people will just use them. Here in our country, whenever you wear clothes like that, people think that you are cheap and man can get you easily.

Wow i agree with you all the way.People that wear skimpy outfits usually arent respected and the first opinion people think of them are that they are slluts or loose..as they say. I think the wearing outfits that shows the shape is fine and its more classy then just wearing a short skirt to show off..the um..excuse the term "goods"

I totally agree with you! I mean, if a person is confident about his/her body, there's no need to flaunt that much. Dressing appropriately/elegantly is good enough. I mean, there's a difference between choosing a dress/clothing that's flattering and choosing a clothing that exposes too much. Also, just because a dress looks sexy on others does not mean it would look sexy on you. We all have different body types and we should dress according to it. It's more sexy and flattering than wearing something that shows too much but you can't even pull off. And I totally agree that dressing provocatively and showing too much can expose a woman to many sorts of danger and harassment!

You're right in that regard. For me, if you wear revealing outfits then you best prepare yourself for rude remarks from guys or something untoward. If you wear that kind of clothes and you show it off in a manner that invites danger, then you dont have the right to complain. You brought it upon yourself. For those who defend themselves and say, "I dont want my body to be wasted" (Sayang ng katawan ko kung hindi ko ipapakita.) I only have one thing to say to that: "Then, why'd you bother dressing up?"

syoti what century are you from here in southern california in hot weather we wear shorts and sleeveless tops as its hot out there and no we are not in bathing suits down to tour knees and up to our chins as we would sweat to the extreme of illness. we do not think of being sexy but being comfortable. you do not come from the Us so why do you think bad of people who dress for the weather? this is our country and our culture and customs also. respect us as we respect yours.

Hello Syoti, I believe it's their right to be good to themselves, the problem is that they don't know when to combine proper trend with their body. some people wear something that is totally not sexy to them most specially when the tummy or the fatness is almost exposed. some people wants to express beauty, but of course, they should be smart at least in self defense.

Well...No, not entirely...I do agree that intelligence is very sexy but I also believe that if a woman wants to wear a sundress or shorts in the summer she should certainly be free to do so. Baring a certain amount of skin by no means is asking to be raped! It wouldn’t matter if females were walking around naked for goodness sake; still no man has the right to touch a woman if she doesn’t want to be touched. A rapist is a sick individual and it is not the woman’s fault for being scantily dressed. Don’t get me wrong I am not advocating walking around without clothes on or in an indecent manner but I do feel that women have the right to wear whatever they like and men should leave them alone if that is what they want!

Agreed. In my country, a lot of young girls are wearing clothes which reveal a lot of themselves, they wear sexily, be it to school or outside, they wear revealing clothes, not knowing of the danger that is around them. Although there are seldom rape cases here, but there are still some happening, which is dangerous!
