I'm sorry, but this is a load of crap. I think that it's been well established, legally, that women do not "ask" to be sexually assaulted/harrassed because of the way that they are dressed or how much makeup they have on. As long as you're not dressing inappropriately (which I doubt you are, or else you would have been yelled at for it on your evals), then you're not "asking" for these kind of comments just because you take care of how you present yourself to patients. Don't buy into the archaic way of thinking that women "ask" to be harrassed because they're not dressed in oversized burlap bags.
