Why are they allowed to stare wherever they like when we’re not allowed to wear whatever we like?

I find it very sad there are societies that put all the burden upon women to control the sexual urges of men. It seems, to me, so unfair and so silly to believe that by concealing the female form you will curb a males natural (curiosity..instinct.. whatever you want to call it) urge to view her and by doing so become aroused. Instead of just teaching mutual respect between the sexes. Men have the ability to avert their gaze and women have the ability to choose their own dress without being naked or being made to cover head to toe. By continuing to place the burden (and blame) upon the female this allows the men to act as they please without being at fault.
