You must see though that you cannot cover all the women in such a swiping definition. There are countless examples of women who do know their real value and still dress sexy.

I don’t get it. This is how we work for God’s sake! We have features on display to arouse potential sexual partners. How we dress is also a tool to facilitate this signaling and the author has a point: both sexes should do it.

That is the problem, that dressing sexy and looking to have a sexual image is attributed solely to women. If both sexes embrace the normal activity of trying to look good, you’d have a win in that it becomes then very hard to argue that “she asked for it”, as many sexist bigots can argue today. Dressing up, grooming and taking good care of oneself is normal.

I write so you feel like you’ve just had an idea. It’s a nice feeling.
