Sympathy for skin?
For example, subjects were asked if they’d administer harmless but painful electric shocks to another person. They chose to shock those fully clothed significantly more often than those exposed above the waist. So if you’re looking for sympathy, maybe show a little skin.
After years of church and society ranting about how a woman showing a little skin is the woman dressing for rape, it turns out the opposite is true. Men and women who show a little skin actually elicit sympathy, not predation, from others.
Doesn’t it also seem rather interesting that the schools which treat children in the most severe ways also tend to be those which have the most stringent uniform demands…
