You will hear the same old debate off most people about what you wrote Jamie. Just because a woman dresses a certain way that does not mean she is asking to be sexualised. Lord knows how many times I have heard that line. That women should be allowed dress as they want. Show off what they want. Without men thinking it is an invitation. If you are heading out for a night and you dress in a short skirt and a low cut top, are you doing it to feel good about yourself, or do you want to gain attention? Open a few eyes? You know what I mean. What I wrote about will be said again and again by many as answer to that question. How you dress should not matter. Same line we are hit with all the time. Even if you walk naked down a busy street you will be told that does not give people the right to look at you in a sexual way. How else are they meant to look at you? It doesn't give them the right to touch you. To look and maybe comment on what you look like? Heck you want the attention. You are dressed for the attention.
Latest case here in Ireland involved a man giving an interview to a woman for a job. She was nervous. He wanted to try and relax her. To make her feel at ease. He asked her was she married and did she have kids. That cost him his job and she was awarded a few thousand in damages. She reported him. Said such questions have nothing to do with an interview. Have no idea where all this is going? Will it be illegal to chat a person up next? Second you say anything to them they will report you.
There are some serious cases out there been looked into. I am not mocking those cases. Today it is hard to know what is right and what is wrong. As a man what can I say to a woman? That won't be classed as sexual. How do strangers make contact these days? Once we could chat a person up without having to worry about anything at all. Those days as fast going before our eyes.
