To cover or not to cover?

I have been having a lot of problems with my dissertation on "Women Blacksmiths: a study of how fashion can save them from sexual exploitation" - mainly due to my Tutor's sexist attitude. He maintains that women look sexier when they expose flesh - but if you are a welder or a blacksmith, that is quite dangerous.

Here is a modern plumber looking quite sexy - but suitably covered up, to protect herself. My Tutor maintains that she should look like the photo below - regardless of how unsuitable this actually is!
Of course, if he was a woman -or, perhaps, gay - he might find the sight of men's bottoms look enticing. But they don't appeal to me!

In my research, I have come across a lot of women who combine excellent welding and blacksmithing skills with fashion skills. One of them is shown in the Pathe clip below - she is a very pretty young girl and she didn't feel the need to show her bottom.

  3. I feel that the plumber lady in the picture above is an imposter. I say this because the soles of her shoes suggest that she hasn't done much walking through a dusty plumbing yard, where a fine pair of braces on display would most definitely be in breach of health and safety regulations.

  4. Sveika Scarlet! I am sure she is not a real plumber but I included her because she does have a lovely bottom, and I knew Nikos would like her! But she does have something in common with many women welders I know - she is 'going commando'! It is no good spending a lot of money on expensive undies if you are a welder - they don't last long, with all the sparks and weld splash!

    And Nikos: many blacksmiths can weld very good, but not so many welders can shoe a horse!
