The comments on tit-staring make me wish the women could occupy a man’s body for a day. Ignoring tits in your visual field is as easy as it is for a woman to simply ignore a cute baby in the vicinity.
I was flabbergasted, to say the least. What to be more annoyed at? The suggestion that women are somehow programmed – biologically, of course, I am sure – with some sort of infant-adoration module? Or Mr. Murray’s casual insult to his fellow men, that they are simply incapable of behaving decently? That’s quite some theory Mr. Murray’s proposing – that because women have tits, and because they are visible, men must stare at them. It’s the women’s fault, you see. If only they didn’t have the tits. Or hey, maybe if they covered them up! With a hijab! Then they wouldn’t provoke indecent male behavior!
Yeah. Bitch PhD has something to say about that in a post with the apt title It’s More Than Just Your Eyes, Dickwad. Clearly it’s not the visual presence of women’s tits that is responsible for harassment and other shameful male behavior. She notes:
Because the fact is, there is no rhyme or reason as to who gets harassed and who doesn’t, and what kind of behavior/clothing/location/makeup/companionship you have when you get harassed is totally not determinative.
I’ll leave you with one more fabulous quote from her, but you really need to read the whole post.
…[T]he daily drumbeat of the world treating you like you’re a piece of meat every time you step out of the house takes a toll on your psyche that nothing can erase.
Dudes, I totally believe you are able to look away from the magic tits. Do the world a big favor and start acting like adults who are in control of their behavior and able to make choices about their actions. Sheesh. Feminists get accused of whining and playing victim, but I’ve never seen such whining acolytes of victimhood as the poor menz whose bodies rule their minds.
