I'm one of those girls that hates short shorts. I wear skirts and dresses that go up to my knees and only wear t shirts with jeans, no tanks. My friends dress in more revealing clothes and they get more attention from guys than I do. The guys ignore me and speak to them kindly.

I wear short shorts, miniskirts, minidresses, and I have way more tank tops than tshirts. I haven't felt disrespected by anybody and I don't think of myself as someone who is looking for disrespect. Probably if I was living in the Middle East I would have no other choice but to cover myself up, otherwise I don't find anything wrong with girls wearing clothes like those. Oftentimes it's the intentions what cause someone to be disrespected. You can spot girls who behave like cats on heat, those girls are just too obvious in their intentions, but if you're playing cool, I think it's okay.
Also... there are "revealing" clothes that are okay, they are of a nice style, and there are clothes that clearly vulgar. Like:
