    Girls in developing countries being stoned to death because they want to educate themselves is why we need feminism.
    Just because girls aren't being stoned to death in this country doesn't mean feminism isn't needed. Modern western feminism has its issues for sure, but things like this showing that we still have people in authority with such unhelpful and sexist attitudes and that the OP's teachers invited in someone with these attitudes to project them onto children in the first place demonstrates that perhaps feminism isn't completely redundant in the western world just yet despite what many (particularly on here) seem to think.

    Mine workers dieing in developing countries are why we need workers rights and struggles. Not for pampered western doctors.

    Your definitely not overreacting. I hope you challenged that archaic attitude when it was expressed. I'm very quiet in class but hell would freeze over before I'd listen to that and remain silent.
    OP is definitely exaggerating.

    A bit harsh. You can't blame all men. It's just a minority.

    I'm just stating what most of the people in my year believe. I understand 100% where they are coming from but they could have put it a bit more nicely to a room of easily influenced girls.

    I'd say they're half right tbh. Short skirts do attract attention, but I wouldn't go as far as saying their asking for it. No one asks to get raped. But those that wear really short skirts are doing it for attention, and sometimes that attention is from sexual predators.

    There are very few reasons to wear short skirts imo, when I mean short skirts, I mean really short skirts. The only realistic reason I can see is that they're looking for attention.

    Shorter skirts are bound to make one look more sexually attractive, but that doesn't correlate to them "asking for it". You should still blame the men, in the end it's their fault for doin' the stuff.

    In a way I sort of see what the officers were trying to get at (dressing in an attractive manner is gonna effect dudes becuz dayum) but they could not have chosen a worse way to put it if they tried.

    What a disgusting thing to say; shorter skirts do not warrant unwanted male attention, harassment etc.
    LOL
    girls know guys will look with their skirts so short and tight, they are not asking for rape, but they are certainly looking for the attention.
