I have been thinking about this since yesterday. I was waiting for a train at Guildford on Saturday. 3 young girls about 13/14 were on the platform. From their chatter it sounded as though they were bright and articulate youngsters ..they were talking about school, homework, holidays etc. Their accents/speech suggested they were from fairly 'middle class' families. They appeared to be lovely girls and causing no problems at all. My concern was that they were wearing shorts so short & tight they might as well have had just pants on! They had bare midriffs. They were wearing light make up.
I felt uncomfortable for them. I felt they looked like 'jail bait'.
I know women should be free to dress as they like and it should never be an excuse for men/boys to assault. I tried to remember when I was their age..hot-pants/panstick/kohl eyeliner/..did I ever look like that?
AIBU to think they were inappropriately dressed???
