Apology taken in all points.
I checked the video. Sadly, it was about him, but he did not speak there. I checked some of the other videos where he does speak. What should I say? He is a populist and from a technical standpoint - he is a good speaker. Good because his speaches rouse people from the chair - either because they agree or because they disagree. I have not been following the political development down under for quite a couple of years so I am not in a position to evaluate whether he is right or not about many things he says. As much as I am inclined to believe that his statements about women are more than just old fashioned, I also believe he has the right to speak his opinions just like anyone else. The fact that he is a PM means that there must be people who agree with him. However, I have also a reason to believe that what he says is a well calculated manipulative pose. He knows all to well that it is going to make you gals spinning in the air with fury. And when you do that you unwittingly play the game he wants so bursting out in outrage just plays to his cards.
My personal experience is that when you rule out 50% of the population, you are robbing yourself and everyone who is with you. Women are the spice of life - sometimes a bit hot, sometimes they make it taste bitter, other times sweet. Thanks god for that, because that means it is not dull. But I guess we are getting quite far from the original discussion. If you wish, we can continue it elsewhere as it may not interest the others here.
If it stopped at staring I'd understand. Hell, I know more than a few girls who genuinely like the attention. But when the staring turns into comments, gropings and assaults, I have a problem.
It's like putting merchandise in a window. Some people glance, others press their noses into the glass and look stupid, but no one should smash the window and hightail it with the goods.
What is the point of being attractive when there is noone to admire you and noone expressing his admiration for your attractiveness?
But seriously. I explained myself in greater detail in reply to Ruiku-Sama bellow.
Donīt get me wrong... I keep all obscenities purely to my thoughts.... and most often refrain from them all together since I dislike obscenities anyway. Though, I admit I do like to have a look or two!
But the way I see it is as follows - if you want to look attractive, then you also have to accept the fact, that you will be attractive to someone aaaand since every one is different, then the attraction is going to be expressed by many different ways.
If I were to draw a similar line it would be something like this: I like to engage in medieval swordfighting. This kind of hobby requires me to wear an awfull lot of heavy protecting gear. If I have it, it might be unconfortable, but it keeps me safe - but it is altogether my choice. It is up to me if I want to feel uncomfortable but safe or comfortable but dead.
What I am trying to say is that most things come with built-in side effects. Extravagant cars come with high price and attention of cops on the roads, lots of chocolate comes with lots of body fat and short skirts and skimpy outfits come with lots of attention from guys (wanted or not). It is all too easy to put the blame on the guys when really the main responsibility lies with the one who wears the clothes.
