Jezebel asked readers to chime in on what they were wearing when they were harassed on the street. Not surprisingly, women do not have to be dressed skimpily to attract unwanted attention; one commenter reported she looked like “a fucking Amish lady.” The most common answers were “minding my own business” (not that it’s technically an answer to the question that was asked), “wearing jeans,” and “having no makeup on.” So if you’re ever wondering if you should change out of that cute summer dress into something a little plainer to walk to Walgreens after sunset, don’t bother. Just being female is the only fashion choice that matters in these cases.
