Sorry for the misleading thread title, but I think it’s appropriate in a backhanded way: it’s the kind of ogling that gets all the publicity, and therefore, presumably, is the kind of ogling that folks are expecting.
SO… you (female person) are out and about in a public place, and (again presumably) residually alert to the possibility that some person might be staring at your mammaries, a non-insubstantial portion of whom are going to do it in ways that won’t endear you to them…yes?
So how about the folks with a different staring-target?
Do you have tales of annoying guys (or non-guys, I guess, hypothetically speaking) who have disconcerted you, or annoyed you to the point of eliciting homicidal impulses, who did so by staring at you elsewhere?
Is it identical, in its way of pissing you off (assuming it does, feel welcome to describe alternative response on your part) or is it differerent if what the ogling person is ogling isn’t your tittage but other attributes? If different, how, and why, do you think? Y’all always talk about guys staring at your boobs, is it because they are closer to your face and therefore get in between someone meeting your eyes, or is there something about having someone stare THERE that’s more invasive than if they stared elsewhere, or is it that most of the world’s supply of invasively staring people pick THAT as what to stare at so you don’t have a lot of built-up resentment for guys (or non-guys) staring at other visual targets, or what?
Disclaimer: I’m a self-acknowledged dirty objectifier of women and I love to stare and I stare elsewhere and would love a clean bill of health as far as the likelihood of annoying the female folks I stare at. I’ll come clean if it comes up as someone’s pet peeve or intermittent irritation.
