    This thread is about women's clothing, not women's bodies.

    I'm not talking bodies, dude, I'm talking clothes that accentuate female beauty, rather than covering it up

    That sounds exactly like you're talking about bodies.

    "Fashion cannot make you sexy. Experience makes you sexy. Imagination makes people sexy. You have to train yourself, you have to study, and you have to live your life."


    "For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one's favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence."

    I did and the very first sentence is "What do you like to see on a girl, clothing/style-wise?" and further down it says " I mean, I really want an emphasis on the clothes (err, well overall style I guess). So I suppose in a roundabout way, this is a thread about women's clothing, not just attractive women in clothing." so if he likes that style, he like that style, which is a subjective opinion and as we all know subjective opinions are subjective. :slapfight:

    no, it doesn't...but feel free to continue arguing something entirely rooted in the subjective though

    edit: let me elaborate here, because this is bugging me. You post pics of girls in blazer/jeans/heels mode. That's cool, not my thing, you're entitled to your opinion. But then you turn around and discount a whole other aesthetic just because it does not fit your narrow-minded criteria of sexiness and femininity. Then you criticize people for calling you out on what is at least to me some narrow-minded, dismissive, ignorant shit. Total blind reactionary hypocrisy. Like... come on dude. That's sad. Expand your horizons a little, you have absolutely nothing to lose and so much to gain.

    There, this year's internet rant done. back to girls n clothes

    I'm starting to think a better title for this thread might be "How I would dress if I were a woman". In some cases it seems like you guys are posting photos of the female equivalent of what you like to wear.

    Also the idea that a woman must dress to be sexy or feminine or attractive or whatever is disturbing in and of itself.

    ok I'm done I swear

    isn't this only natural ? if you have an interest in something , wouldn't it make sense to be drawn to others who have similar interests ?

    'discount a whole other aesthetic'? little bit of us versus them thinking? I made a statement, that the women were entirely draped in fabric, not that the entire aesthetic was shit (which for the record, I don't even believe). also, to be clear, as I and now you have alluded to, this is ENTIRELY subjective, as if the word 'like' in the thread description didn't make this obvious. I'm still not sure why this argument developed at all when that's the case. more often than not, when I see stuff on SF that looks ridiculous, I just bite my tongue under the guise of differing opinions. that's fine and I'm completely OK with anyone liking different stuff than me. I also see a lot of stuff that while totally not for me, I find genuinely interesting in some way and can respect--that's why I come back here. the thing that pisses me off though, but frankly doesn't entirely surprise me, is that when I make a comment, rather than attempting to challenge my argument or genuinely discuss, I often get some ridiculous attempt at condescension (most recently 'middling taste' from you and KOYs comment about criticizing 'good' pics after posting my 'bad' ones). you don't need to like what I like, but I'm not entirely clear why my differing opinion would bother you to such an extent that you feel the need to try to shit on me. it's a juvenile, unnecessary, and completely begets the narrow-mindedness you claim to hate.

    It would help if you didn't act like "subjective" means "beyond reproach"


    Look! It's you making this about bodies! That thing you said you didn't do!

    And what we're getting at is – why is this a problem? What do you mean when you point this out?
