: : Both description show the sex-appeal of the female as something aggressive the men have to protect themselves against, or have to attack = provocative can mean they feel provoked to violate...
: : Turkish men describe a good looking, beautiful or sexy female
: : as: Bir ichim su = "a drink of water"
: : Now, a drink of water is salubrious, refreshing, life giving.
: : Which one would you, as a female, prefer? To be seen as someone who incites violence, or let's use the lesser term: action...
: : or to be seen someone who is salubrious, refreshing, life and health giving?
: : Another thought for the day.
: Cries out the TowneCrier!
