Girls wear short shorts, and short skirts. Is this for attention?
They say, 'Its hot outside.' Yet, I wear shorts that are to my knees, and I am fine, and I'm a guy. Also, they wear such things when it is cool. So, obviously it must be for attention?
Also, maybe subconsciously they want attention? I cannot think of any other reason.

I mean, it all depends on the situation.. I don't know what goes on in every girls head, but here's my theory:
When it's hot outside, I'll wear short shorts - cause that's basically how girls' shorts are cut (plus, you get tan!). Knee-long shorts that keep me cool aren't commonly sold for girls. And I guess they don't make me feel as good about myself, cause it doesn't accentuate my body shape (=makes me look bigger -> makes me self-conscious).
I guess it's for attention, but also for ones own well-being. For some people, I guess the two of them are related (you feel better because you get attention). But hey, girls look good in short shorts/skirts, right? And we know it. Therefore, we feel better about ourselves while wearing them.
But a girl wearing shorts or whatever, is NOT a cry for attention..! But it may be a method of getting a guy's attention.. Does that make sense?
Also, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there. One might feel that only the "hottest" girls will ever get boyfriends or whatever. So you have to look like a hottie to get noticed. Kinda like when the male peacock shows off his feathers. Or when other male animals sing or do a mating dance to attract females. In the 21st century, GIRLS have to be on the offense. Or help the guys be on the offense, like by wearing revealing clothing, which makes us more approachable I guess..?
I just re-read my post. And yea, I guess it's for attention. Though I personally don't think: "I'm hungry for attention, so I guess I'll wear my short skirt today". But maybe I do after all, subconsciously, like you suggested..? huh. *self-realization moment*
Attention and ones own well-being. That'll be my answer.
(wow, I serioulsy over-analyzed this question.. sorry 'bout that)5
