Yes, she was.

That's so judgemental and intolerant...

Darn right it is. And it should be. We should be intolerant of people who dress like hookers in the presence of our Lord!

Not to mention these women dressed like this are putting a lot of men in at least a near occasion of sin if not in out and out mortal sin...another reason why going to the NO is sinful.

I sympathize with your position, but the man always maintains control of his eyes.  The woman isn't personally responsible for whatever the man does, but she might be committing scandal- I think?  Wish Rosarium was still here.  That was his word.

That's bullshit. When women dress like hookers and are in the pew in front of you or walk by you you can't maintain control of your eyes. By nature men are the aggressors in relationships. You really need to read the book The Dogma of Hell and How to Avoid Hell by Fr. Schoupp. There is a whole section on this...I believe I posted this here not so long ago. I will see if I can find it.

If a man lusts after a women because she is dressed immodestly, that doesn’t mean its any less of a sin for the man. The man needs to practice self control just as much as the woman needs to dress modestly. I understand what men have said about this, but I feel like sometimes it is used as a cop-out, and I don’t like it. We all have to take responsibility for our own actions and not blame our weaknesses on others. "Whore over there, hookers over here” its uncharitable.

It's not bullpoop, Petertherock.  Both have some culpability in the sin, but ultimately we're responsible for ourselves.  Men should practice custody of the eyes.  You can't always blame other people for all your troubles in life.

Do you think that the great monks and friars of Catholic history who practiced self discipline and self denial would blame other people for their sins?  Heck no.  You take care of your own soul.  Dressing like a tramp in Mass is bad for a number of reasons-- one of which is that it provides an unnecessary temptation for people.  But when it comes right down to it, you can only control yourself.  So worship at Mass with your eyes closed or standing in the back facing the wall or bury your head in the missal or switch pews to the one behind the old bitties.

I'd say that your response is the one that's full of poo.
