First, let’s start with your hair. A bob is too masculine, and no man will ever want you with a pixie cut. Long hair is more feminine and attractive. Of course, you must bear in mind that loose hair means an attacker can use it to pull you down, so make sure it’s up. And elegant. And brushed and straightened, or curled, with as much product as possible. It needs to look naturally perfect.
Next, your neck. Ladies, if you’re going to be grabbed, this is where it will be. Avoid wearing necklaces, chokers, ID lanyards, ties, scarves, boas, wraps, or anything that goes around your neck. An attacker will use it to hurt you. But do not leave your neck without protection. Bare flesh is enticing, and you’re really asking for it then.
As a side-note, any kind of jewellery is a bad idea. You’re displaying valuables, and that is an open invitation for you to be mugged. Yes, the ear rings have sentimental value, but they are prizes to be taken if you show them off. Besides, they show just a bit too much personality.
Now, on to your main dress. Do not dress butch. No man will want you if you rock the boyfriend jeans better than he does. In fact, it is better to forego trousers altogether. Skirts and dresses are the way to go.
Of course, you cannot show too much skin. Anything above the knee is asking for it. And below the knee is prudish. And please make sure you shave your legs; there is nothing as unappealing as body hair. Wax every part of your body until you look smooth like a child.
If you have chosen a skirt, please choose an appropriate shirt counterpart. Please refrain from wearing anything related to a hobby or interest. This includes bands, TV shows, movies, books, comics or any sports teams. Men will find themselves forced to test you on your knowledge, and wanting the attention is unsafe and unattractive. It provides an excuse for them to talk to you. If you must wear a skirt-shirt combo, please ensure that it covers your shoulders, arm and wrists, as they have been known to drive men in to uncontrollable lust. It is not their fault if you do not know how to dress yourself appropriately.
Finally, we come to feet. Obviously high heels are the only shoes worth a man’s time. Sneakers, dolly shoes and ugg boots are unflattering, unfeminine, and not at all sexy to a man. The heels should not be so tall that you tower over a man, but tall enough so when you walk, it is with an uncomfortable lilt as your heels slowly begin to blister. The benefit is a sexy, curvy figure that only bone bending shoes can create. It does, however, make it harder to run from an attacker. But really, what did you expect wearing heels? You were asking for it.
So today on my way home, I overheard two men talking.
“She was asking for it. Did you see what she was wearing?”
I was mortified. Appalled, shocked… And why? This is the society we live in.
No woman ever asks to be attacked. And when we tell a woman she was asking for it, how to dress, what he could have done differently… we are telling them that they are in the wrong. We are blaming the victim and telling the attacker that they couldn’t help it. And when we tell a woman how to dress “safe”, we aren’t stopping the rapists and muggers on the streets. We’re making sure they attack another woman.
And why not?
They probably deserved it.
