Don’t, don’t keep talking…

Why? No but why? It’s still obviously wrong for people to do it but you shouldn’t go out like that if you think that…

You think going out dressed a certain way, is like asking for some sort of attention?

Attention. Not what happened to her in the morning obviously, but it’s verbal also.”
