a man's view of what works for a woman in a man's world

they mean well
they love us
but they are not us, they do not experience
what it is to be a woman in a man's world
whether it be that
he is titillated by a skimpy outfit
and she smiles to please him
hoping to get business done quickly so as to
go  home and snuggle up in old sweatpants and
her favorite sweater
my friend meant well when he asked me what was wrong
with skimpy dress
he has no idea what she hides from
her male admirers
he meant well
to share his admiration and love
but he doesn't know the careful dance we do
to make sure we are treated seriously
having honed our own way of navigating in a
mans' world.

we must navigate our own way.
