KENYA: We may live in the tropics and are a bit relaxed about our dress code, but sometimes female dressing borders on harassment. Let me explain.
The amount of cleavage on display in official settings is really distracting.
For example, in a meeting with a cleavage exposed colleague, a man has to have his wits about him.
Since male eyes have a natural disposition to ‘check out’ alluring female body parts, the aspiring gentleman makes great effort to appear respectful.
In the age of sexual harassment accusations, to be caught staring at a female’s bust is plainly lecherous.

The exposed woman does not help matters by drawing attention to her chest area by constantly rearranging her top.
As a rule of thumb, a gentleman must learn to train his eyes to focus on a spot that is in the middle of her forehead.
Throughout the conservation he cannot afford to drop your eyes. It helps a great deal when there is an open window. One becomes very appreciative of the view, noticing hills in the distance, minute details in the ceiling board and appearing spaced out in the thought in between paused responses.
This gentleman business is not for the easily swayed.
