    No. Stop blaming every damn thing on men. The reason women’s clothes are designed to emphasize their bodies is because women buy the shit, it sells like hecking hot cakes drizzled with honey. The clothes that are are more conservative, that covers more or has utility such as bigger pockets don’t sell as much. It’s the same issue with women’s sports and movies with female casts. MEN are the ones that watch and buy tickets, women DON’T, but men constantly get the blame for being sexist and not support those things. Do not listen to feminist when it comes to anything concerning consumerism. Women control 80% of all purchases made, they drive our markets, nearly everything made is catered toward their tastes.

    Kek, it’s never being about dressing for themselves. When women say they dress slutty for themself than that means she dresses not slutty for you, but for chad.
    Incels still take everything literally what women say, read between the lines.

    Yes, and it always has been. Women extract value through clothing either by the clothing being expensive and this flexing their wealth, by showing off their body ie their inherent value as women, or by intentionally not showing off their body to flex that they are so value that even with the most ugly clothing they have inherent value.

    If you are a male you will understand the first point, but the second two don’t apply to men so you probably won’t understand it. Women are far more interested in their inherent value as woman than achievements or ability.

    So yes women’s clothes caters to the male gaze, but only because women compete with each other to see who can get the most male attention. It’s like saying that fishing nets cater to fish – yes they are optimised to catch a lot of fish, but ultimately only so they can be sold and eaten.

    >why do women
    Attention. Whenever you start a question like that the answer is attention. I can’t believe this needs to be said in 2020 + 3 + 11/12.

    No. I think women’s fashion is catered towards competing with other women in a sort of social game. The amount of times I’ve seen a woman wear something absolutely ridiculous or even repugnant only to be complimented by here peers is massive. They wear “sexy” clothes even when they’re not trying to pull a man.

    E.g. Those tattered jackets like pic rel but with the midriff exposed and “distressed” that women sometimes wear. It doesn’t make them look attractive but they copy each other regardless and now the stock outfit for women in the west is tight blue distressed blue jeans with white shoes and a oversized leather jacket or a distressed denim jacket and those tight gym legging things.

    Idk though maybe other guys find this hot but I’m a high functioning sperg and women who dress in such an impractical manner just to play a social game are a big turn off for me.

      How spergy men respond to trends:
      1. Become aware of x because it’s trending and normies are talking about it
      2. If x would be of benefit to me I might get it. E.g. if I think it’s cold I might buy an overcoat. Equally, if an autist is aware of something’s existence, if they think it will benefit them they will get it regardless of if it is “in” or not unless they spend time in a very social environment where they know sticking out like a sore thumb will get them into trouble they can’t get out of with their peers (e.g when they’re a child and still in school).

      How neurotypical women respond to trends:
      1. Become aware x exists
      2. Are my social circle wearing x
      3. If so I need x to show I’m part of their group
      4. If not, by getting x I can show I’m ahead of the curve compared to them
      5. Acquire x
      6. Rinse and repeat

      X at this moment happens to be distressed denim jackets and white trainers from what I see women wearing but it’ll probably be something else soon. Basically it’s the same sort of thing that used to happen with tin-rattlers in Germany where you face ostracism for not buying their pins, only this time it’s girls getting ostracised from their friend circle rather than losing their jobs because the party leader thinks they’re suspicious.

      The exception seems to be Muslim women I see in town who tend to wear these overcoats that are also puffer jackets. Perhaps religious authorities praising modest women mitigates the social game I’ve described above. Also spergy women will just wear whatever they feel like yet it always seems to look rather feminine and hippie-ish in a cute sort of way.

    feminist majors have been saying this for decades

    There was a time when marketers for the fashion/beauty industry told women to buy their stuff to impress men. Then as the feminist wave came, the industry pivoted to tell women that they STILL NEED to buy makeup and dresses for themselves instead of any man

    They’re not being forced to buy it. Companies will sell you anything if enough people want it. Turns out women want to dress in revealing, "sexy" clothing so that’s what you’re going to find.

      some feminists might say it’s a marketing propaganda campaign to subconsciously brainwash, oppress, and objectify women while making them think they’re dressing like that because they want to

    Retailers will sell whatever is bought the most. If prostitute rags are in, they will sell prostitute rags.
    >I only dress for myself, showing my secondary sexual dimorphism characteristics the are attractive to the opposite sex even if it means wearing uncomfortable skin-tight clothing and high heels, with my tits coming our of my blouse cut down to my bellybutton

    Right.

    >It is not our responsibility to look sexy for our partner

    Well, yes, actually, if you’re going to have a "partner" then it is your responsibility to be attractive for them. I dont know who else’s responsibility that would possibly be
