It's ok to look, isn't it


This myTake is prompted by an interesting video by Bettina Arndt, an Australian writer and commentator who specializes in sex and gender issues. In this video, she talks about how women dress, show off their bodies, and how and why men look at them. Her views may be controversial, especially to feminists.

I've known several women who don't mind when men look at them. In fact, I've never known a woman who gets upset when a man looks at them. It doesn't mean they want (or expect) the man to have sex with them, with or without their approval. And I've always been of the opinion that there's nothing wrong with looking. In fact, I dated a woman in college who used to tell me, "I don't mind you looking at other women, because I know what you're getting from me."

What do you think?

Is it okay for women to dress any way they want and not expect men to look? And when men do look, it's okay to shame them?
