My two cents:

I believe modesty is very important, don’t get me wrong. But when a girl gets the flak for something she has very little control over, such as the way a guy looks at her, that’s where I draw the line. When a girl is told she can’t wear something because it will set off a guy, that’s where I draw the line. And this extends further than just within a school setting.

No, I’m not saying that girls should just throw away all sense of modesty and run around in skimpy outfits because “it’s the guys’ problem.” I’m saying that people need to stop viewing this whole issue as solely the girls’ fault. It’s not.

A girl’s wardrobe should not have to change because a guy is “having problems”. What if she’s wearing a perfectly conservative shirt…
