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).
