Imagine waking up with that thing staring at you. I am not sure what I would do after my heart started beating again.

He did eat 4 entire chickens in Tar Valon. That's a lot of breast meat.

And Mat is more likely to get that pose from women then most of the other male characters just because he's Mat...
I'm with Seeker here! Mat angers women, a pose that calls for arms folded or hands on hips. It's also a very easily-understood expression.

Remember also that Min's that rare woman who wears pants! This means that most women in Randland walk around with their hips, et al, covered up. What's visible? Face, hair, and bosom.

Mat is very sexual, and probably objectifies women, but doesn't otherwise disrespect women. That's better than I see in a lot of my fellow men, much less those over 21.

I enjoy looking at women and what they wear. Women's clothes are often so much more versatile than men's. And the female body is a home run of natural design.

But I don't go to strip clubs, and I don't fantasize about what I see because I'm not a scumbag. Just appreciating the view and evaluating fashion.

I'm finding the other side of this hilarious to read (the male side of ogling/viewing).
