    The ones that confound me are the women that dress provocatively or to get attention and when they attract a guys attention they act holier than thou and act offended.

    I realize you weren't,.. all good.

    I agree. When guys around me did that I would literally cringe at times. It is embarrassing to act like so childish. If you want a woman's attention you can use humour (what I do) or just talk to her.

    Coming back to the blame for guys acting like a-holes falling squarely on the girl.

    Would you ever say something like:

    Hey jerkwad, that's somebodies daughter. How'd you like it if somebody was treating your daughter like that???? Why don't you stop acting like an animal and have a little respect?

    How was it "staged?"

    All she did was walk around. She didn't engage the men, she didn't encourage them. She wasn't wearing a low-cut dress, or a translucent top. She didn't make them do anything. The men made themselves look like asses.


    I don't care personally, but it really is men acting like men, and the difference between you and them is that you have the sense to keep it to yourself, just as I do, when I see a man that I find sexy and attractive. It's lewd, but certainly nothing unusual.
    And the merit is in not acting on that impulse.

    She was making an attempt to show men as assholes. THis wasn't some woman who just happened to be walking around the city for 10 hours, with someone videotaping her, and every man she passed made passes at her. The video was edited to show the men who were being asses, and my guess is that the ones who were decent (who probably far outnumbered the asses) were edited out.

    What confounds me is how some guys think when a woman dresses sexy that she is doing it for the men's sake. Women can dress up for their own sake.

    Not really. The guys are acting like jerks if they are acting like jerks. That doesn't mean that attention that she wants and gets proves the guys were acting like jerks though.

    Would you ever say something like:
    Not in my single twenties... no. What I did do was to use other guys assholishness to my advantage with humor or scorn in order to meet girls though

    Because in a city of 9 million people she had a couple of hundred possible incidents most of which are nothing but she used this to make men look bad anyway...
