Men look at a woman's breasts before her face


Men have an eye for women's breasts
Victoria University of Wellington researchers have found nearly half - 47 per cent - of men first look at women's breast. A third of men's ''first fixations'' are on women's midriff.

Shockingly less than 20 per cent of first glances were at the woman's face.

''Men spent consistently more time looking at the breasts of front posed female images and also made significantly more fixations upon the breasts than other regions of the body or head,'' the researchers suggested.

thats very true.

@gena that holds true not only in egypt but across the world.

i am so glad i started wearing hijab very early in my life.

Ayse said...

totally agree! And I also agree with more and more men becoming increasingly obsessed with the backs now. There are times when my non-hijabi cousins look more modest and decent than some teenage hijabis.

Brilliant cartoon. You do realize that 'hijab' is not a synonym for "headscarf" though, don't you? A headcovering is "khimar" in Arabic and "hijab" means "cover" more generally so before the Europenas started making a fuss about headcoverings, Muslims understood hijab to mean covering of all of the awra (for a woman everything except face and hands, and loosely and not in transparent fabrics), not just the hair, breasts and neck. When someone who wears tight pants and tops like those in your cartoon says to me that she wears hijab, I say "Oh do you? When?" or "That would be nice to see you in one day." Then we get to talk about it.

One word: yikes.
I wear the hijab so....well, I suppose they have to look at the face to know who they are talking to. The great thing about a (properly worn) hijab is that they look straight at the face and personality before anything else!
