Sounds like you are the one who is clueless about feminism.
Who said anything about male approval? Usually female on female attacks stem from jealousy and insecurity.

And even if they did do that to appeal to men (who says that's the reason? You don't know their relationship status), is that not their prerogative? Or do women somehow lack the maturity level to make such a decision?

If they think a woman doing something, wearing something or saying something will catch the attention of guys, they put that 1 thing down.

I said it's their decision to do that. It's not my thing, but I'm not going to sit on some magical moral cloud pretending to rule down on others. How a person handles the wedding photos is not a concern of mine unless it's my wedding

It seems that you are looking for validation of your opinion

You accused those of us who think weddings aren't an appropriate occasion for showing your butt as being jealous. Seems a little strange to me. Or maybe it is a generation gap.

I don't know, but is always put weddings in the formal/nice occasion bucket. You put on your nice clothes, have fun but you are still behaving at an elevated level above why happens on a regular weekend night. Apparently I am crazy and have weird conservative/outdated standards. </sarcasm>

Did I say you were crazy? No. In fact, most people would say being nude at a wedding is tacky. However they're wearing dresses and raising them for a pic. A pic that likely isn't taken in front of everyone.

But there are some overreactions to girls lifting the dresses to show a buttcheek for a picture.

You'd think the women were fully naked the way some people responded.

Notice it's mostly other American women making the biggest fusses! I bet if the latest fad was all the groomsmen stripping, then it would be all grins, smiles, giggles, and laughs The outrage would be replaced by "It's just harmless fun" etc!!

First of all this was a formal occasion. Secondly, where is the study that Americans (US) are so
uptight? Third, I've seen more than just an arse since I have been doing figure drawing for years
(where there are male and female nude models).

There is a difference when it's at a beach vs a formal wedding. We know what to expect at a beach.

Two words....Wardrobe Malfunction.
I've never seen so much howling and ballyhooing over absolutely nothing!
We had a good laugh over it.

Great pictures!!!! I love bridesmaids with a little bad side

The fact of the matter is....the human body is a beautiful thing. Women essentially wear underwear on the beach and society doesn't lose their collective mind. How is showing a little cheek action degrading and slutty?

The only people who obviously have a problem with this are the American Taliban and bitter mediocre looking men and women who feel the need to bring others down to make themselves feel better.

Thank god I live on South Beach which is a nightmare dystopia for all the anti-sex jihadists and the sexually insecure and thus they avoid it like a plague.

Compared to their European and Canadian counterparts, Americans are most definitely prudes.
We have nudity in our childrens' cartoons and nobody bats an eye.
What's really puzzling to me is the total acceptance of violence in the media. Watching people having their brains blown out is OK, but showing a bit of butt cheek is disgusting.
