Sure, but most of these people don't really mean it *that* way! They keep
looking, right? It's an exaggerated expression of hurt and disappointment.
Now, I agree it's a problem if these public expressions aren't balanced in
some way. Like how our society presents a one-sided view of beauty and
sexiness, for example. But when an individual expresses themselves, I don't
think people should get all twisted up about it.
Yes, I know, "society" is made up of a collection of individuals... easch
expressing themselves, etc, etc. Go ahead and poke holes in my statement. :)
It seems to me in general that people forget the point of view of the person
who's saying the stuff. I freely admit my opinion on this issue isn't worth
much because I haven't really thought this through. I know misogynistic
attitudes hurt people, too...
