Is it inappropriate for a girl to be showing her midriff?

Asked by: ladiesman
  • Its very disgusting!

    Alright this is for smithj, I am commenting because I want to state my opinion. Apparently everyone here is just too stupid to realize that girls especially teen girls dont need to be showing off their body. Like seriously get some clothes that actually fit. Girls dont need to be worrying about their belly showing off to all the overage guys. You teen girls need to be focusing on your Education and not about how much off your body is showing off. Just get some appropriate clothing and get a good education. And if you are not a teen girl and you are like 30, there is no way in hell that you should be showing off your body. If you are then you definitely need to stop what your doing and grow up. I really hate the stupid people that think they need to be showing off their body just to get guys that are so much older then them looking at the girls body. Its disgusting!

  • It sure looks like they're almost about to show their private parts

    I completely agree with Emili. It's just sad how many girls today keep on showing off every part of their body. Girls should be modest and dignified and only show their bodies to that one special guy. Not to every single guy on this planet! I mean, what's the point, it's not like your going to marry every single guy, so why treat yourself like an object and not a person? You know what I never see. I never see a guy showing parts below their hip. I never see guys walking around in thongs. I never see guys stripping at strip bars. I never see guys walking around in booty shorts.

  • They should be shamed of themselves.

    Their sense of modesty that shames them doing that was deleted by artificiality and trained them to become machines of mass distraction against true happiness of other people and to make them shame of their own natural beauty. Women were trained to become more sexually attractive and men to become more ugly as possible.

  • It is highly fowl and explicit and dirty for girls to do so.

    When any humanoid with estrogen shows their abdomen section many, Many, Many persons find it immensely in an erotic type of way : arousing. Which feels highly wonderful for the physical figure to feel the sensation that the said exposed : bared stomach trope does to others, Both women and men. However not only persons with estrogen, But ANY type of human gender showing their torso midsection center can be in every sense of the feeling : raunchy, Perverted, Naughty, Lustful, Fowl, Explicit, Dirty, And all other terms. Even although it is acceptable in some settings such as the rightful occasion : such as taking the rightful photos, Such as professional modeling, Such as at a pool party, Such as on the beach. So the conclusion is : sometimes it actually is acceptable, But in most other public settings like public schooling, Like public work place, Any neighborhood, Any restaurant area, Any shopping area, Or in any other civilized setting, ANY person showing their ingested container parts is truly, Really, Actually wicked, And I for one deny it, And hope to terminate : to annihilate it.

  • Uncultured thing to do

    Girls/women who do this have the right to do so. But that doesn't make it appropriate. It can arouse many other men and women alike, So for any women who do show it, Your being naive and unreasonably bold. Ever wondered why its against school dress code? For the reasons above.
    Thanks

  • Disgusting and Shameful

    Any female who shows off their midriff is just asking for attention and for the negative attention as well as positive they are going to attract, but mostly it is going to be from overage males who just sexualize the female in question, and I’m not going to apologize for speaking the truth. Since the dawn of recorded time, females have been sexualized and that’s NEVER going to stop, so all those who say “grow up” why don’t you, yourself---‘grow up’ and be realistic. A female, no matter how old, is going to be sexualized by females and males both, therefore, it is in the female’s best interest to be modest and dignified in their dress-code, otherwise, you deserve what you ‘get’ and attract to you. As the saying goes, “if you swim in the ocean with sharks, then don’t whine and complain when you get bitten-----that’s just being stupid.”

  • Wtf?!? What is wrong with some of you?

    The person who chooses to wear this is obviously either proud of their body or their hot in the summer. Honestly who are you to slut shame girls and women for not having "modesty" when they are just trying to be comfortable? If you dont like when people where this style, then just avert your glance and mind your own damn business. If you have a problem with teens "showing off their body", stop sexualizing them.

  • Comparable to Shirtless Men

    I find myself comparing women with exposed midriffs to men without shirts. It's appropriate in some situations, such as swimming and running and other physically demanding activities, but I do not feel comfortable with a girl exposing her midriff in plain everyday clothing. Same goes for men without shirts. I understand, you're proud of your body and you want everyone to know that, but please, you're making some of us uncomfortable.

  • No it isn't

    I think it is perfectly fine for ANYONE to wear shirts. Even if they have have midriff. If you feel comfy in it then do it. If you are one who is against it then dont wear it and dont comment. Just dont pay attention. Leave the situation be. Ok?

  • Depends on the situation

    In certain circumstances it is, while others it is not. In situations such as job interviews, formal parties, etc. girls are not encouraged to expose their midriffs. If you're at the pool or beach, bare midriffs are acceptable. The real controversy is in schools; middle schools and high schools have dress codes, but that doesn't stop some people.

  • Women should wear what they want!

    I have been wearing crop tops since freshman year, And quite honestly, They make me feel the most comfortable in my body. Of course you should be following whatever dress code you have at school or work. But other than that, It’s just a shirt. My midrifF isn’t a sexual organ. If someone is getting aroused by looking at 2 inches of my midriff, Then that seems like a personal problem. If you get turned on by my face do I have to hide that too? What about my hands? It’s an absolutely ridiculous notion that people have to censor themselves and their bodies just because someone can’t keep it in their pants

  • It's a free country and she's not hurting anyone

    If she chooses to do it, Then that's her choice. The only reason the belly is consider sexy in some countries is because we are raised with that belief. In other places, Where bellies are exposed and normal, The population grows up being used to them and it's not something people think about twice. I know some say it can make other women feel self conscious or hurt their self esteem, But that's their personal struggle as even seeing the magazine covers at a grocery store checkout line will have the same affect.

  • People can wear what they want

    Some of these comments are insane! Who are you to dictate what women can and can’t wear? Calling these girls “disgusting” and naming them “sluts” is frankly vile. Prime example of sexism and old fashioned stigmas about showing skin. Wearing a crop top does not make you a slut. Wear what you like girl. Don’t listen to these mysoginists, Living about 50 years behind the times. It’s a stomach! Not her boobs! Get over it. Why are we so afraid of skin anyway? We all have it! Anyway, All of you trying to dictate what others can wear, Pipe down. And girls, Wear whatever makes YOU feel good. Don’t try to please others :)

  • It makes us feel like we are disgusting and that we should hide.

    Why do people think that showing your stomach is wrong? I understand showing your boobs, Buttocks and naval but a STOMACH what is wrong with that the only thing about your stomach is we’re food gets digested and we’re are belly button is! ALSO why is showing your stomach and shoulders not aloud at school I literally asked boys at my school if they thought it was inappropriate and they were like “what no I don’t even pay attention to that. ” I want to meet the people that first brought on the idea that showing your stomach is sooo terrible and just slap them in the face. The only reason showing your stomach would be inappropriate is if you were only wearing super tiny underwear showing your buttocks and a really showy bra that wasn’t even covering your boobs.

  • It's just a stomach

    As a teen girl and I myself wear crop tops, At most I show like 3 inches of skin and I don't think that's giving off the impression that I want attention or that I'm easy, Or whatever the hell you imbeciles think! I wear what's comfortable for me and what I think is cute. Most girls who wear crop tops don't even show off their whole midriff. For example I wear high waisted jeans and I crop to so an inch of skin tops is showing and the skin showing is above my naval. If you think wearing a crop top makes me a slut or means that I don't care about my education like some of these comments say your actually delusional and must be decades older than the girls that this topic pertains to. Trust me I'm doing just fine in my AP classes and am thriving with my 3. 8 gpa, So while I'm just living my life how about you go mind your business and live yours

  • Kind of depends. . .

    In some cases, Teenage girls WANT to show their midriffs to try and “impress” other guys. If it’s for that reason, Then I don’t support it. But if a girl is wearing it because she feels comfortable in it, Or is doing something like running, Tanning, Etc. Then it’s fine. Personally I would not support this, But girls should be aloud to wear what they like depending on how confident they feel with their body.

  • Depends on how much or high.

    I am a male but I am not disagreeing because I am a male but I am disagreeing mainly because it isn't because it all depends. I have been trying to search up what a man thinks why the navel is so sexy and cam across nothing but I have a theory depending on how high the crop top is it isn't inappropriate. What ever man thinks is sexy on a girl than it is. The crop top can be half way up but no higher main reason is because girls will know if they will be looking because most man wants the full picture so some guys are way to desperate and try to kneel down to see and if a girl sees than the guy's face will become red because a sensitive girl would slap him but if a girl is doing it on purpose than it will be declared inappropriate for her. Catch my drift. It all depends on the type of girl really.

  • It is completely fine

    If a stomach turns someone on then that isnt normal, if u are comfortable in your body then show it off. I dont think anything is wrong with showing some skin. Grow up if you think showing stomach or shoulders is disgusting, its clearly not. My opnion just me okay
