    i.e. "Do you know the time?"

    "What aisle is ___ on?"

    "Can I help you find something? (I'm only talking to you because my job requires it)"

    If I can avoid wasting my time dealing with someone that I can already tell I have a pretty strong probability of disagreeing with or disliking ahead of time, I'm going to do it. There's simply no logical reason why I should give them the time of day, as far as I'm concerned.
    Well, in that case, you should be avoiding ME! We disagree about quite a few things. Lol!

    Yea, well, you're cute.

    Besides, my "concrete purpose" for being on a debate forum is to disagree with people and bounce different ideas around in the first place.

    And maybe open up your mind a little more? Just a "little" bit. Lol!

    Let's take a look at what I would think is provocative. Some of the things you have posted, I would never even consider wearing.

    Now, I LOVE this outfit, but I would probably feel a bit uncomfortable and overexposed wearing this out in public. I would be afraid to bend over for fear of things "coming out" of my outfit. But I still think it looks fantastic and not at all "trashy" but rather quite sexy. But like I said, I would not wear it out in public.



    I MIGHT wear something like this though. I think she looks adorable and everything is covered. Of course, I would have to make sure that the bum had enough coverage too since I can't see the back side of this dress.

    No.. I don't think that. I am pretty sure it contributes to some, as do other ways in which a person can draw unwanted attention to themselves.

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    Consensual sex is about pleasure, rape is violence and violation, power over another. To say that anyone, male, female, child or elderly and those with disabilities would invite rape by dress, speech, inability to say NO is complete nonsense.
    No woman dressing provocatively or a mentally challenged person smiling should ever be seen as an invitation to commit a violent act. Those who don't understand that should really evaluate their sense of right and wrong

    Exactly. That's the whole point. The first outfit (while, quite attractive, on the whole) is little better than lingerie. As a matter of fact, if it came with shorts, rather than a skirt, it probably would count as lingerie.

    Guys are going to look at that, and they are going to get certain ideas about a woman's intentions.

    Why?

    For exactly the reasons you just laid out. No modest woman in her right mind would ever wear it!

    The second outfit, while still somewhat suggestive, is a bit more concealing. It also aims more for a "soft" kind of femininity than the raw sex appeal the first outfit displays.

    It'll certainly attract male attention, but it's generally going to attract a different kind of male attention than the first outfit, from a different kind of guy.

    I would definitely wear this too. It's sooo cute! Now, I'm looking at clothes! LOL! Something to keep in mind though is that I don't have large boobs. Maybe I would wear more revealing tops if I did, I don't know, but I tend to dress with a more concealing top because when you have smaller breasts, the whole boobs will come right out of a top like that quite easily.

    Yes, I tend to like to dress a little bit on the sexy side when I go out, but that doesn't mean I want to get raped.

    Like I said at the start here, there isn't anything wrong with that so long as a woman is careful. I was simply pointing out that overtly sexual clothing (which I wouldn't say that the outfit above qualifies as being) does tend to grab a guy's attention in a way that outfits which leave a little something more to the "imagination" do not.

    Very often that attention is going to come from exactly the kinds of guys most women probably don't want attention from in the first place.

    If paired with behavior to match the clothing, and the wrong guy, this can be a potentially dangerous combination.

    The dress is great, BTW.
