Advances in facial recognition are creepily good. The big data market can use things like pictures to build shockingly accurate profiles of people, that they then sell to anyone.

Okay, if women put parts of their body on display, how can they expect that people won't look? I mean out-and-out leering is gross, but what's wrong with an admiring glance? I mean, if you choose to wear a super low-cut top or a really short skirt, you're intentionally calling attention to how beautiful/sexy you are. Why wear a short skirt if you don't want men (or women, if you're of that persuasion) to admire your legs?? (and I'm a woman, so please don't accuse me of being some sleazy guy, thanks).
