When we first told my son, he was about four. He looked me straight in the eye and said, very scornfully, “That’s not true.” Then he thought the better of it and played along for a few years. In...

Another mystery is what "spending lots of money" has to do with anything at all. Working women not only have to be extra careful what they wear but also how much they spend on their clothes??...

Plus, if you're going to "seduce" someone, why telegraph that to the rest of the world? So they can just slut shame (g)you and be done with the matter? Makes no sense at all.

Why is it so hard to understand that what someone wears isn't an invitation to do anything - even if it's a T-shirt that says something to the effect? It just isn't. "Deliberately too revealing"?...

What do you mean by "entrapment" RichardM? I'm trying to think of any definition that has anything at all to do with how someone dresses and nothing fits.

That's a funny story EQ. How much funnier it would have been if it read "don't destroy his beliefs in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or horoscopes too soon". :D
