It doesn't always happen, but a lot of times I hear about sexual harassment, I see the victim wearing skimpy clothes basically asking for it. I do think you should be able to wear what you want, but know that it can indeed provoke a pervert to touch you without consent if you're wearing shorts that reveal half of your buttocks and a crop-top up to the bottom of your breasts. Know the possibilities and consequences if you wear skimpy clothes. Don't wave it in peoples faces or they might just go in for the kill. Now, I don't support the idea of not letting people wear what they want, but yes, some clothes can indeed provoke a pervert to touch you without consent.
If I were to approach a woman in a "sexually harassing" manner (which I wouldn't and don't), I would go for the one wearing more revealing clothing (or the most attractive, hence why clothing isn't relevant ALL the time).
If two women walk by me of equal attractiveness, and one is wearing a turtle neck while the other is wearing a low-cut V-neck with no bra, I'm going to be setting my eyes on the one wearing more revealing clothing.
With that being said, I'm not saying it's therefore okay to harass anyone for any reason, and clothing is not an excuse to harass anyone, but it is a REASON why some people harass women in this way. The question at hand is "do clothes provoke sexual harassment," and to that I answer yes, clothing can provoke sexual harassment.
For centuries Women have been fighting for their right. Just because a women wore a mini skirt, a crop top or didn’t wear a bra, doesn’t give the right to assault her fysically or verbally. There is no such thing as “She was asking for it”. If the woman says no o protests that is not asking for it! Some men blane it on testosterone wich “difficults” their selfcontrol. This is false. The effect of the testosterone is not strond enough for a man to lose control. A man who would commit sexual assault it is just cruel, doesn’t have moral and has list respet of women and women right.
The only thing that causes sexual harassment are sexual harassers. Clothes are not consent in any way. Women should not have to change what they wear in order for men to control themselves. We have a right to express ourselves, with out being harassed and assaulted. Grow the hell up.
It's based of entitlement usually. I was sexually harassed a couple times while wearing 3 thick layers of black clothes that covered 90% of my body. People should be allowed to wear whatever they want. Teach others to keep their fuckin' habds to themselves. Women have always been harassed, even when they wore those 2737273642718 layers of clothes.
