Ahhh so, I stand corrected...
Or 'belay my last' as those at sea would say.
I just recently left the artic east coast where its winter, and everybody naturally wears layers of clothing, to the tropics, and seeing females in bikini's everywhere and purposely accentuating their sexual parts is a massive sensory overload. Immediately this biblical quote comes to mind: "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28) I whole heartedly believe in the truthfulness in that quote, as everything in existence started out firstly as a thought ("everything is mental" is a hermetic principle) . Before a killer kills somebody, he thinks about doing it. In fact, everything around you and the current state of your life is a result of your thoughts; conscious or subconscious. If your looking at a girl in a bikini and are thinking dirty thoughts, you already committed that sin in the Creators eyes, as you planted the seeds for that action to manifest in the future.
Now females, you are not making it any easier for us by wearing such provocative clothing! Ultimately, yes its the mans fault for having dirty thoughts, and if he actually acts on those thoughts; I am not putting all the blame on the female.
But, let me give you an analogy; if you place a heroin addict in an environment that flaunts heroin like its the cool thing, and even stick it in front of his face, and he finally caves in and uses, is it 100% his fault, or should the people around him face come accountability as well? Well, females, unfortunately many males can be likened to heroin addicts when it comes to sex! Many males (about 85%) are sex fiends of varying degree. Only a small amount of males can say that they can look at an attractive women and not think about sex, and see her for the amazing human that she is.
Again, I'm not pointing the finger at any one gender as both genders need to play their parts, but this message is aimed at the females, as this one crucial yet simple change in wearing more clothing when out in public can cause a domino effect in the behavior of both genders. The private, erotic body parts should be reserved only for your mate, not to the public at large.
Actually, i do believe men shouldn't walk around shirtless neither. Its quite primitive in my opinion.
But its still different; a women doesn't lust for a mans physical features like men do women. Women are attracted to other things than looks, like status in society, among other things.
And for what it's worth, when I see the way women -- and girls -- are sexualized today, it sickens me... and I pity those who have bought into it. But when we see how the ones with the power and influence over society -- the politicians, the media, the Hollywood power brokers, etc. -- have been promoting this "sexual revolution" and all the while sexually abusing women with impunity, it makes more sense...

You are putting words in my mouth.
I clearly said if a man acts on his dirty thoughts, he is still the one responsible for his actions. I am not saying that its a womens fault that a man commits a heinous act.
Also, if you dig through some of the comments, i did write that i believe all HUMANS should cover up, as a man walking down the street shirtless is caveman like, primitive behavior.
Lastly , theres a considerable amount of people that my message resonates with, mostly women!
It may not seem like it, but my message came from a pure place, as i truly love and respect women. I am simply trying to raise more awareness and challenging both genders to take steps in our behavior so we can slowly change our somewhat sexually sadistic society.
That is all.
And now it is cool to be a member of the "I Too Was Sexually Assaulted Club." Another way they promote and advertise your right to be exactly what they want you to be and to feel good about being victimized in the process.
Of course they have a solution to the problem, they will soon have rules and regulations that will be put into place that will assure them that they will be able to continue their agenda.
Someone mentioned a "Handmaid's Tale" as a precautionary tale. It definitely is something to consider. I would add: “Better never means better for everyone... It always means worse, for some.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale.
We often forget the power that influence can have on others whether it is something as simple as a smile or a wave. Both can be deadly or life saving depending on the circumstances. In some cases you can be blindsided, no matter how careful you are, but being aware and anticipating likely possibilities, will put you way ahead of the game.
Boy, I sure am glad I didn't start this thread, buying all the women new clothes would bankrupt me.
