I'm not saying there aren't girls out there who do dress for male attention but honestly a lot of us don't.
Can you imagine if we got up every morning and chose what to wear based on whether or not men would like it? In that case we probably wouldn't wear anything!
But I feel like a lot of men just assume women dress the way they do to get men's attention when really I dress for comfort and care more about what other women think about the way I look than I do men (women have a competitive thing). And when a woman compliments my outfit it means a lot and gives me a confidence boost more than when a man does (again not a lesbian, it's the competitive thing).
Why do guys always immediately assume we're dressing for them?
The person who talked about it being internalised sexism probably hit the nail on the head, but maybe it isn't the women who have internalised the idea that we should dress for men, maybe it's the men who have internalised it.

I don't. Just like I don't appreciate girls staring down their noses at me for wearing a tank top to cool off when I'm in hot weather for prolonged time periods, I don't judge you for what you wear.1
