The Skirt Test
On the way home I stood more often, trying to really see if I can get any sort of substantial reaction. I passed a police officer and thought, "ooooh, is he gonna give me a negative look or pull me over?" nope, ignored. Further down the road, closer to 5pm, I finally saw results! When I stood and cars passed, regardless of a male or female drive, they actually slowed down to pass me (sometimes went out of their way to look at me in a sort of "really?" way). Sit back down, they go back to normal eratic driving, stand up, slowed down again and again.
In turn, if you wear a skirt and make it known, you may have to deal with less aggro drivers than usual. I may start wearing skirts more often.
