I apologize for the lateness of this article. I posted this on a personal blog about a month ago and didn't realize it would appeal to a Newsvine audience until today.
Browsing Digg today, I came upon an interesting article from ABC News. With all the news coverage shown about how provocative girls dress nowadays, and how they dress so procatively younger and younger each year, it's interesting to see that some experts say it's really not that big of a deal. The articles states:
But some psychologists and child-development specialists believe nothing about the teenage drama has really changed. While young women may express their sexuality more overtly than they have in the past, for the most part, their behavior isn't cause for alarm. It's a necessary step in growing up.
While I agree with this somewhat - after all, it seems to be that not all "slutty" girls at college are indeed sluts - I'm not sure this necessarily means that there's no cause for concern. Whatever the research says, I personally believe that if a girl dresses like a whore, she looks like she's asking for sex. Whether she is or not is a different story, I guess, but if she's going to wear a short skirt, she's going to get attention and from what I've seen, all you need in the equation is some alcohol and she'll turn into a sex machine.
Apparently I'm not the only one who believes this either. jsd8cc from Digg made an interesting (and vulgar) comment that I agree with completely:
"'Just because I'm DRESSED this way, does NOT make me a whore'.
Which is true. Gentlemen, that is true...just because they dress a certain way, doesn't mean they are a certain way...don't ever forget it...but ladies, you must understand that that is fuckin' confusing. It just is. Now that would like be me, Dave Chappelle the comedian, walkin' around the streets in a cop uniform.
Somebody might run up on me, 'OH, thank God...Officer, help us, come on, they're over here! HELP US!'
I'm like, 'Oh...just because I'm DRESSED this way, does NOT make me a police officer.'
It's like, alright ladies, FINE, you are NOT a whore. But you are wearin' a whore's uniform, I'll tell you that shit right now..."
I guess this is the general viewpoint of men everywhere - ha ha. Either way, whether girls actually are sexually active at younger ages or not, if they dress like whores they will get treated like whores.
