lakefront...

"Oh, that's such a cute dog." Like you're looking at the
dog, your gaze isn't anywhere near that low.

I walk susie out on the local lakefront a decent amount.
Here I see lots of crimes of fashion, most by white men.
White men, who need to learn that honky and tank top do
not go together. Going running? Longer shorts. Please.
Spare us your ugly thighs. I see black men running and
they never seem to make these mistakes. There's also
combover-creepy-white-man with a sleeveless t-shirt.
(And no, Mr. Gelmonkey, I'll say hi to be polite but don't
even -think- about anything else.)

I'm just trying to avoid rambling about my own self image,
really. I'll shut up now.

Oh I'm sure he was just trying to read your t-shirt. He's old, his eyesight is failing, you know how it is.

The "Sex" episode of Penn & Teller's Bullshit has a bit where they have a lady dress in a conservative top and try to get men on the street to answer a short questionnaire. No one stopped. The same lady in a low cut top was able to get lots of guys to stop and spend five minutes answering a questionnaire about bathroom deodorizers. They had a camera in her cleavage and showed just how much time the men spent looking at her chest.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that you have breasts and to men that is a wonderful thing. Some men will hide it better than others, but all are looking.

As has been said to me...
"Trust me candice, we are looking at your chest. don't worry so much about the rest of it." I suppose at the moment they're more noticeable because I've lost weight, but not there.

Personally I have found that what shirt I'm wearing makes no difference, what does is whether or not I'm with any guys. (Like, oh, being dressed in baggy jeans and tshirt and getting hit on while buying beer for a party...)

Best worst pickup line I have ever recieved:
"Walk in front of me so I can watch your cute ass..."

OK, so I'm reading through the archives of Shaw Island and I come across this strip. Which contains the wonderful and strangely appropriately timed quote:The female will wear very little clothing, and display her cleavage. However, the male is not to look at the cleavage -- or else suffer great verbal and/or physical punishment. The human male must first spend money and feed her.
