    Don't blame us, blame evolution! It's Trevor the monkey at work within us, fighting for physical comforts and survival.

    I however use more sophisticated strategies to progress human development, such as charting the actions we need to take for furthering world peace and universal enlightenment, which are still great works in progress; this renders the hitting on sexy girls practice irrelevant to me and of little use.

    Also to be frank, I don't see any real difference in people of different genders apart from a few body parts, but really, the physical does not define who you are. For reference, see my below post from the Aphrodite Questions the Necessity of So Many Men~ thread:

    IQ tests indicate that all people, not man or woman, but people, regardless of gender, are all very much as capable as one another in intellectual feats.

    When it comes to the physical though, us dicks are frankly at an advantage, and hence we can do work that requires greater prowess in strength.

    But like I originally said, I don't see people in terms of their body, but rather by what is inside. All people have the potential to transform the world for the better.

    If we do wish to transform the world for the better, we cannot see people in terms of black and white, male and female, and so forth. We need to accept all individuality, humbly recognizing that each and every person can be of vital importance. This would be a good first step in furthering world peace as well as making universal enlightenment immanent.

    And lastly, this belief of mine is more controversial, but I don't believe the human spirit has gender, I just think it takes on a random (self-chosen?) gender in different incarnations.

    Too much ingrained sexism going on with both guys and girls these days. As long as someone's being respectful to the people around them with their clothing choices (no bikinis at a funeral) and it doesn't break any law, they can wear whatever they want.

    I'm not big on those sorts of excuses and rationalisations.

    I'm going to make bikinis mandatory at my funeral.

    I'm going to put the fun back in funeral.

    That's awesome, good job! Throw in an inflatable water slide while you're at it. Nothing's more fun than a water slide.

    I partly blame the way clothes are made themselves lately. Women's clothing is a various world but it doesn't take much to see that generally the smaller the size of the women's clothes , the more sexy they are designed. The result is tons of cute short shorts, mini skirts and plunging necklines in size 00-5, and it just happens that people age 11-15 usually wear this size. A lot of them specifically play up the cute factor to entice preteen girls to get them. When I was 12, I didn't get the super sparkly size 1 shorts because they were super short, I got them because they had pink sparkles. I was at that typical awkward with my body phase so it definitely wasn't a matter of wanting to show off. Nowadays, it's more of a struggle of finding a shirt that I don't have to buy two other undershirts with in order to not show the upper half part of my chest. Because of course they want you to spend more money by either buying multiple shirts or get their ultra demi push up bra for $59.95 + tax. Sure there are other options, but much of them are either pricey or go the other extreme to frumpy.

    Yeah, we decided it was the approachability factor. Also, if you don't know them, you could assume the plain way they dress indicates low-self esteem/low hanging fruit. Thankfully that's not the case.

    Meh. Men don't corner the market on deceit and manipulation.

    Yeah, women's clothing is a lot more complicated than that, and so is type. There's a quite a blend of conservative and sexy, and quite a range of types who will wear clothes that are obviously for seduction. The people who often fill clubs are called overtly sexual people, not SPs.

    I'm not apathetic to boys, but I'm not particularly attracted them...... I just like positive attention from people. That and I've got a tad of healthy narcissism It's nice to look in the mirror on occasion and think

    Though this isn't that relevant since I'm an adult.... I know how to tastefully play up my features a bit, and I also know when I need to wear a hooded sweatshirt and baggy pants to feel comfortable and safe, in areas where simply being a young woman will bring on the catcalls. It's beyond ridiculous that you have to do that, but also nearly insane to break that unwritten rule.

    They did, however, corner the market on sexualized aggression and predation.

    Well, I can't argue with that. It sucks that many of us have to go through life thinking like prey because of that.
