In the light of what happened recently in Kenya, the
question often arises: does it really matter how women dress? Aren’t they free
to wear anything that they want?
Back at school, I asked a classmate of mine the following question: “Why do you dress up the way you do? Don’t you know that the way you dress often affects us men?”
Her reply was: “As long as I feel comfortable, I don’t care about what others think.”
It startled me and left me thinking that maybe she does have a point. Woman are pretty much free to wear anything that they fancy.
However, it seems, the men in Kenya don’t think so. They are saying: “If you don’t dress up right, we shall strip you naked.”
It is not only in Kenya where men get offended by women’s dressing. Even in my country, Zambia, men often get offended to the point of stripping indecently dressed women.
But it seems it is not only men who are disturbed when a woman decides to exposed a little more of her body than is regarded normal. Women too get offended. I have been amazed to see women stare long and hard with looks of derision on their faces. They get appalled because, as they put it, exposing the female body gravely disrespects it and definitely undervalues it.
But as a man, I will speak as a man and for the men. The
following are the reasons why women should watch their dressing:
1. Men are Sexually aroused by what they see
Like it or not women, we men are arouse by what we see. It is natural and the best we can often do is look away. But that is easier said than done. It is not easy to control these eyes.
Men are sexual creatures, and they are the ones who often initiate a sexual encounter. The way a women is dressed will often capture their attention. If a woman is dressed skimpily, men will often take it as an invitation to make a move.
This is why female prostitutes dress up so skimpily. It works effectively on men.
If you go on a date dressed in very revealing clothes, don’t be surprised if your boyfriend makes a move a you. That is the message you are probably putting to him.
2. Bad dressing Makes you less respectable
If you dress up badly, men will not respect you and will even attempt to touch you indecently. I have seen this happen to unfortunate women.
3. Men are looking for a Decent Life Partner
4. Indecent Dressing Makes you Look Ugly
5. Your dressing Speaks Volumes about you
