Remember when we all pitched in for that dead horse, labeled it “Rebeloution Modesty Survey” and then took turns beating it? Oh, that was fun.
But we haven’t heard from Sultry McHawt lately.
Ms. Sultry McHawt puts the sex-ay in modesty!
Let’s check in…hey look! A respected author and real role model has put in his two cents about the modesty survey, and he’s not afraid to take those horny boys to task about their own responsibility.
Girls are in a tough spot when it comes to modesty. They are called by God to dress modestly, but because they aren’t born with the same “visual nature” in their sexuality as guys are, it is difficult for women to spot where modesty begins and ends.
True enough, girls are in a tough spot when it comes to modesty. Their own boobies don’t really do anything for them, so sometimes they forget to tape them down firmly enough. But what is firmly enough, really? I’m not exactly sure how you could find out the answer to that question, but I bet it involves one lucky-fuck youth group and a lot of ace bandages.
As guys, we complicate it further by carelessly sinking to our own lowest levels sexually. Our visual nature first forces God to call women to modesty, depriving them of their freedom to define their own style of dress. While that is frustrating in its own way, their real frustration comes when we only pay attention to the girls in our youth groups that dress hot, while ignoring the ones who dress modestly and chase after God.
It’s your privilege and your right as men to create a ridiculous double standard that allows you to have something to practice besides that which you preach. Don’t let this schmuck take that from you!
Who can blame the girl who throws up her hands and snaps, I’m through worrying about this modesty thing! Their eyes are their problem, not mine! I certainly can’t blame them as long as we are being so lazy about it ourselves. We must take care of our own responsibilities first by disciplining our eyes and our minds to line up with scripture if we expect our women to line up in modesty. We are men. We must lead in all this.
Oh. My. God. He’s going to say it. He’s actually going to tell these boys (25% of whom agree with the statement “Sweatshirts (??!!!?) with messages across the front draw too much attention to the bust.) that they need to get a freaking grip. Oh, finally.
And that is what I love about the Modesty Survey. It allows guys to take some responsibility and leadership. We can honestly help train our sisters in Christ about where those boundaries lie and, hopefully, as we think through the issue ourselves, we can begin to stand up as men by joining the Rebelution against low expectations.
Emphasis mine, just to make sure you caught that, because I had to read it a few times before I believed it. But it’s true-an important step in controling your own lust and taking responsibility for your thoughts is training the women to stop being such stumbling blocks, what with their University sweatshirts and their walking and swimming just like they were people. And you can do this by holding a massive survey loaded with statements that even the Amish would find a bit prude and proving once and for all that no matter what she’s doing some guy somewhere finds it too hot to handle.
Rebeloutionettes: Seriously, if you need your red flags to be any redder, I don’t know what we can do. Oh, wait, yes I do. The quotes from the question “Immodest clothing is not a problem (for you) when a girl in your own family wears it.” pretty much tell you everything you need to know.
A young lady, regardless of your relation to her, can be a stumbling block/temptation to a young man. Sort of a disgusting thought, but men, if not walking in the Spirit everday, can be wolves.
My younger sister, 14, is just recently becoming more of a young lady. It was not too long ago that I (for the first time) had to bring up her dress to her. It’s not a question of incest. It’s a question of instinct. I could probably think for a moment and realize that it’s my sister, but why be put in that position in the beginning?
A girl is a girl. My sisters look like girls, and therefore they are potentially a temptation. Just because I have a relationship with them does not mean that their womanliness physically can not stir up wrong thoughts.
Even my Mom can attract my attention if she isn’t careful.
And if we need to be reminded that there will be no end to the modesty nitpicking, let’s listen to the 18-year-old responding to the question “Lifting a long skirt any higher than the knee in order to step over something is a stumbling block.”
For some reason, things that are covered and then revealed can often be a bigger mental trigger than something that was less covered to begin with. So yes, I’d say be careful not to lift above the knee.
Rebeloutionettes, I want you to listen to me just once. THERE IS NOTHING, NOT ONE SINGLE THING, THAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP A GUY WHO OPENLY ADMITS THAT EVEN HIS MOM CAN DO IT FOR HIM. Nothing you can wear, nothing you can say, no prayer that you can make, will do a damn thing for him until he decides to do something for himself. The incest taboo is one of the strongest taboos we ever learn, and we share it with virtually every society that ever existed anywhere at any time. If you’re hanging around a bunch of guys who are comfortable enough with their privilege to announce, ‘hey, when I look at my sister, I think, I’d tap that’ then the problem is not you and your Devil’s chunk heel shoes, it’s them, it’s THEM, OH MY GOD IS IT THEM. Don’t let anyone lump people like that into a sample population and then tell you that it is your responsibility to cater to that shit. It is not.
This is an important lesson, probably one of the most important, that feminists would like to give you, and that the patriarchy would like to bury. Sometimes, it’s just not your problem, and learning to recognize and enforce that boundary will save you a lot of heartache and give you the confidence you need to defend yourself when assholes like Fred Stoeker come around.
