No, a decent man will not look at a pretty lady with admiration without first having her consent to…

So a woman finding a man attractive without his consent is also not decent? How the hell then do you ever get to the point of a meaningful relationship if you’re not allowed to be attracted until getting “permission”

There is a huge difference between attraction and acting inappropriatly to that attraction! I am going to be attracted to whoever the hell I am attracted to. I will not however cat-call, leer, ogle, etc. But to vilify a person for being attracted is just as bad as victim shaming. Attraction is a healthy normal thing. It needs to be tempered with respect so that harassment doesn’t result, but it is itself normal!
