Sorry, this is a load of rubbish for two reasons:
1. Men are far more limited in what is acceptable for them to wear than women are in the workplace. It's other women that shame women for what they wear.
2. Men touching women in the workplace is completely unacceptable while the reverse is fine and appropriate apparently.
Exactly and this is where the double standard lies. There are serious consequence for men touching ...even looking at women at work while women can look, touch and do basically what even they please. Yet, women are always complaining how unfair the work place is to them. All they have to do is show a little skin and maybe they get that promotion their male counterpart should have gotten. Happens at my workplace all the time. I can't remember that last time a male was promoted.
Double standard? Maybe. But that's life. Not worth *****ing about.
As somebody else said in response to this, most men don't put up a fight if a woman touches them. Some do. Back in my office days, some women were just as forward as the men were. I've been hit on in the workplace, despite my marital status being known. I had a woman smack my behind once.
And true story, I once got a promotion, I strongly suspect, because the woman doing the interviews fancied me, personally. I was 4 months into an entry-level position and applied for a competition to a job that I figured was (and was right about) over my head. I genuinely applied for the interview experience, and nothing more. Far more qualified men and women lost out, and were none too happy. I literally found myself explaining what my intentions were to a co-worker, and that I did not expect to even get an interview, let alone the job. But from almost day one at that corporation, that woman seemed to pay a little extra attention to me, went out of her way to chat with me a couple of times a day, constantly asked how I liked the job, inquired to my marital status, etc. This was BEFORE the promotion. Went right over my head (I was young) until it was pointed out by more than one co-worker...
Regardless, sexual harassment and preferential treatment absolutely occurs with both genders. Men are often either too dense to notice, embarrassed, or perhaps even enjoy it, which is why there's rarely a visit to HR when it's woman on man. Some women certainly DO enjoy it, or even 'fish' for it - just as men do.
But deciding a woman is fishing because of the way she dresses... I dunno guys. That's projection on your part, which is exactly the point of my previous post. We men are typically the ones who decide things like 'too much clothes' or 'not enough clothes'. She's a prude, she's a *****. She smiled at me, she must like me. She touches my arm, she must want to sleep with me. She shows a little cleavage, she wants people to look. And on and on and on.
It's essentially saying "don't tempt me, what do you expect I'll do?", and turning it all around on the woman. Gross.
Ask yourself this: If you're the type of person who thinks a woman covering her head or face is barbaric and sexist and it must be men who are dictating this to her - then how can you justify going in the opposite direction, and saying that women can't wear too little, because then you'll be tempted to sneak a peek? Like I said, can't wear too much, can't wear too little. Some of you men seem to know what's best for women.
