Well, I haven't read the article, and from the comments I don't really want to :) But there are some important points to be made about the topic.
There is a difference in how men and women react to being publicly checked out, physical affection, etc. And that gets ignored a lot. Men will say 'I don't mind it when someone checks me out' (and maybe that's true and maybe they're a little biased, YMMV as with all user-reported results), and don't understand that often women have a completely different way of perceiving being publicly checked out because of cultural prejudices or history.
Remember, in some countries it's assumed that any woman who gets a public reaction from a man is doing some bad or wrong. Even in Western democracies, frequently when a woman doesn't want attention her wishes get ignored. I don't know a single woman who *hasn't* had to deal with obnoxious creeps in public.
TL;DR AlKim's experience is not the typical experience of women in public - we *don't* have that certainty that men won't start doing creepy stuff when given the chance. That safety in public is a privilege that a lot of men don't extend to women, even when they extend it to other men.
We have a huge problem with that locally. There's a subset of women that want to wear very little and not get oggled and then you've got other women that want the attention. Then you've got still other women that complain about men not being willing to approach them.
A local guest columnist from Alaska got into some trouble for suggesting that men should be willing to fight to get her attention, in the very literal meaning of the words.
All in all, it's a situation that just sucks as you're never quite sure when you're about to hit a landmine. And the only way for men to avoid it is to give up on meeting people in person, and just go for online dating.
They feel comfortable with those clothes? They find such clothes practical?
Lets not be naive 12 year olds here. You can wear shorts without them being super tight or super short. If you opt for the latter it is because you want to feel sexy.
In general yes, but some things like jogging really require less in the way of clothing during parts of the year.
That being said, I don't see men baring that much skin as the status quo when jogging. So, perhaps covering up a bit more is a legitimate option.
