Analysis of I Am a Woman, Not an Object.
My shirt being low cut does not give you permission to stare at my breasts. My pants being tight does not give you permission to stare at my bum. My being a woman does give you permission to treat me as such. I am allowed to dress how I want, and yes, I can expect you not to degrade me. Yes, I can expect my private parts to remain private. The way I dress does not define me on the inside. The way I dress is not me seeking for attention. The way I dress is me embracing the fact that I am a woman. Your comments are not flattering, they're disrespectful. I do not want to hear your comments.
I am a woman, not an object, so treat me as such.
