Can We Have A Law Prohibiting Men From Turning Around And Staring At Beautiful Women On Our Streets?
If you want to be in a society where men don't stare at women on the street, move to one of those wog Muslim countries where women are covered head to toe. Leave the rest of us alone. If a woman does not want to be stared at, she will dress accordingly, on her own. We do not need another politically correct religiously based wacko law.
wow , harsh first answer .... I do believe , correct me if Im wrong , as I can sometimes be the question was not stone serious ...
I think it is natural for all of us to look - women and men - at the opposite sex. It is just human nature . To do so in front off a spouse or partner is a sign of a lack of respect . It can also be a sign of a lack of self control .
As far as men staring at us on the street a womens reaction may be a sign of where she is at emotionally and mentally . It also depends on the way a man goes about it .
One night I went to pick my bf at a sports bar and went in to find him . A man started to make gestures and point me out to his buddies . As we were leaving ( me and the bf) he grabbed onto my arm after saying "I dont care , I will be that guy ," to his buddies . I shrugged him off with one yank of my arm , to in other words say don't touch and don't mess with me . Many mistake niceness for weakness . I can and will set them straight . There was another guy previously who said " every one loves pink " . It was his way of flirting , saying he noticed me , but it was polite and tasteful unlike the other guy so I was flattered instead of offended .
well whats the use of that beauty then? women dress up to make men stare at them. cheers to free world!
I'm wondering what makes women believe they are so important that people notice them.
A think there is an old law in NY where they fine you $25 for flirting ……
That would be stupid. dabeaner is correct. If wearing revealing clothes and then get bitchy becuase guys won't look you in the eye. Well then that's just a cock-teaser.
I'm not gay, but sometimes I see women with such low cleavage even I'm looking at her - not lustily but betting on when one of the puppies escapes the iron maidenform.
I am sure that with enough vocalizing and hoopla we could indeed have such a law imposed. The salient question is should we. The scenario your question implies is that said beautiful woman is walking down the street with a purpose and destination in mind. If she has already passed the man how would she know she is being stared at unless she turned around to check and that implies that she is at least curious and perhaps even hopeful that her looks might turn heads. Some women want this reaction for reasons of self-satisfaction and self worth. Some most certainly do not.You can always make yourself unattractive enough to be visually passed by. If, no comment from the man is heard, no whistle, no "woofing", then where is the offense and harm? Anyone, male or female, can not walk about in the noonday sun without being seen, it is the scientific end result of the scattering and reflection of light. If you wish not to be visible then just stop reflecting light.
First lets focus on getting real crimes like child molesters/rapists eradicated, before trying to pass such silly laws as looking at someone.
not for men or women!
women are beautiful - and i am definitely heterosexual.
but i'd rather look at a lovely female than an average man any day of the week.
besides that, i think free will is an inalienable right.
cat calls, however, are negotiable!
If women covered up properly, and dressed sensibly, men wouldn't stare as there'd be nothing to stare at.
I suggest women get a massive ego boost at being looked at! -why spoil their fun???
if its ur wish that men not stare at you, then i guess it should also be your decision to dress according to your wish. otherwise there is no point in whinging about every single man who looked at you, now is there?
looking at/ checking out ppl on the street is ok, unless you make tht person uncomfortable with your staring..
(girls are defi better behaved in this respect.)
however some females do enjoy being stared at.
But staring at someone in front of your spouse/gf or bf is a BIG NO NO
nothing can be more upsetting than to have your husband or bf look at every single woman who passes by.
a BIGGER NO NO is doing so in presence of your spouse and his or her friends:(((
Your obviously single then darling? if not its thanks to your man being able to do this that he actually noticed you, otherwise you would have just gone unoticed
What an interesting question. I do not believe such a law is plausible in today's society. While it would be wonderful if men would stop staring, it would still happen if there were a law. For if there were a law, who would patrol it? Government officials aren't on the streets every moment, nor would they bother just to give small fines for something like this. They aren't going to install cameras for this purpose. Also, they would run into issues with straight men looking at lesbians and lesbians looking at women. You cannot just draw a line and say men cannot look at beautiful women. You can't make it a law. Can they then look at ugly women free of charge? And why would this law come into action only on the streets? Why not indoors? And I'm not talking at bars where some women are barely covered. This is not about how much a woman wears. I work in a coffee shop where I am fully clothed, but receive sexually harassing comments on a regular basis from one man in particular. Laws against voyeurism are more viable than laws against staring at beautiful women.
Well the question of passing a law against staring at women may not be useful because there are other crime that demands attention like rape as someone mentioned. Secondly, it questionably if staring is a crime because despite the fact that women do stare at men, we can not really conclude what or reason one stare. Some people may stare for lust while others stare to appreciate fashion, beauti, carriage among others. Finally, I think there are better laws we need than that.
there is no way in the world that there can be such law
dont we girls, like actually to getting stared at, "sometimes"!?
Absolutely, we can make a law like that!!!!! Right after we make a law that prohibits beautiful women from wearing any revealing clothes. Or exposing their faces in public... Hey wait... There are countries with laws like that!!!!!
I have to ask - why do you want this law? Are you a beautiful woman and sick of having men looking at you, or is it because you are not beautiful and you don't like the guy you are with turning to stare at a women he sees as beautiful? What would you do? Whip out your cell phone and call the police to tell them that your boyfriend is breaking the law?? Or are you a guy who needs the law to protect him from himself? Or a chiropractor who is sick of seeing neck injuries caused by this? It's human nature. To be able to prosecute in such a case you would at first have to prove that the woman they were staring at was indeed beautiful and beauty is a subjective term. Men will stare at any woman they find interesting, it may not necessarily mean he thinks she is beautiful.
what's wrong with looking at a beautiful woman? should we just ignore beauty ? we look at beautiful sunsets, beautiful buildings, paintings etc. i personally think it's good we appreciate beauty, it beats the hell out of loving ugly things.
Why would this be a law prohibiting men looking at women? Or for that matter women looking at men. This is a natural thing. Opposite sexes would look at each other whether lustfully or not. You think women do not look at men. If this becomes a law, then law would have to be women not lookin at men. Get real. I think you are just frustated for some reason.
it depends upon what are your backgrounds and values.if i would consider it a sin then will try to avoid staring otherwise not.such a law is not possible in a liberal country.
With everything that is going on in this world, to make a law about this would be STUPID!!!!
I would think that women would be flattered if a man took notice of them. I see nothing wrong with looking at a beautiful women.
Grow up. And besides, that isn't always sexual. Women are beautiful. So are all of God's creations.
Here's a question: can a man admire a woman's beauty without being treated like he's crazy with lust?
Such law wil not be necesary,because those who wil make the law do turn and look at women once a while.and women also do turn around and look at men.so you see that everybody wil go to jail.
Gosh I hope not, who knows what they would end up staring at or doing with their time instead!!!
I sure hope not ! Funny too... 'Here's your $50 fine, Sir, you just stared at that woman. She sure is beautiful, but you know it's against the law.' LOL
A better question would be "why do you ask so many dumb questions?"
Honestly, if we pass a law like that then why not put these women in jail for being so beautiful? Or make it illegal to flirt. Are you proposing that we regulate behavior? You already know the answer before you asked the question. Do you need attention?
A law that prohibits men from turning around and staring at beautiful women is a violation of our free speech
Yes, it is very possible. The tool used to suppress womens' normal physical desires in South Korea is psychological and cultural suppression, denial and desensitization. This process of de-sexualization starts at a very young age. It is not effective on the entire female population, however it is in sufficient numbers to keep the powers that be content. This, told to me by one of my English language students who I was teaching in South Korea. This student was an engineering student attending Ulsan University.
If this process can be applied to women with the success it has had the same model can be applied to males. My student said that life would be like being color blind, instead the emotions would be colorblind, no sense of feeling. A population walking about with a thousand mile stare in their eyes. Amazing that!
That law might work if all the arresting officers were women!
What happened to the phrase "You can look, but you can't touch"? Besides, there is no way that such a law can be enforced unless we're cyborgs. And another thing, girls are just as bad. I have female friends that openly say, and I quote "look at his sexy ass". It doesn't bother me, it's just life.
beautiful women are like elephants, I like to look at them but I wouldn't want to own one.
Besides that law would only stop men looking at 0.1% of the women. if you still got looked at imagine how insulting that'd be!
I don't think it will be a reasonable law. These are men we are talking about. Do you think it's possible for a man not to look at a beautiful woman? I don't think so. If a country is looking for ways to make money, they should pass out the law with a fine fee, i bet they will make so much money because there will be so many violators of the law
No ! Beauty should be appreciated no matter what form it comes in !
I don't think showing admiration for a beautiful woman should be stopped. I don't believe women will want that stopped anyway, so I want to assume you asked this question as a joke. If you're serious then I suggest you also try and make a law to neuter all men because only then will they stop turning around to look a women whom they find attractive.
I smell a DOUBLE STANDARD here! Why is it that as men we always get the bad rap? You women turn your heads just as much as us. I don't expect you to agree, because if you didn't admit it then, you won't admit it now.
Are you asking this question as a harrassed beautiful woman or as a jealous ugly one?
Umm....NO. Why would you consider such a thing, political correctness is already out of hand.
What? Are you a shill for the Muslim Brotherhood? Shariah has plenty of laws like that. By the same token, it ain't "rape" if 4 other men didn't witness it happening.
Go grab your little self a round-trip ticket to any ol' Straight Up Islamic Caliphate, then come back as soon as you can answer that question all by yourself.
Shouldn't take more than a couple of days. Provided -I sincerely hope- you survive the ordeal.
Looking is not a problem, problem is doing something.
Can you pls see hubpages.com/profile/MARIAMORTA and save me from slavery and dying with no justice? Slaved for ten years now. See 'how to help site'.
I am sure I am like that because not enough men look at beautiful women as they should, sorry. Most of the problems in human kind nowadays are due to their homosexuality and absolute absence of interest in women, majorly because women are, indeed, worthless, and not only use them, but reduce men to dicks, money, or others.
if men stop staring girls then where will girls show their beauty?
This is an idiotic proposal and backward.Should men walk down the streets with bhurkhas to prevent them from seeing a female face in the streets ? I am a man and I always have women staring at me with lusty eyes.
In London one summer's day, ahead of me I noticed that men were hurrying to walk past an attractive blonde who was walking in the same direction wearing a tee-shirt.
When I drew closer, I realised why. On her back were printed the words, "Tits Like Coconuts".
So, like every other sucker, after passing her, I turned around to look at the front...
...to be confronted by the words, "Sparrows Like Bacon-Rind".
What would be the reason for such a law? Is the woman ashamed of how she looks? Is she self-contious about being ugly or over-weight? Why does she not like to be stared at ogled, admired?
