"Modesty" is a lie

That whole bit about covering your body so you don't tempt your brother to look and therefor into sin? That meme?

It's all a lie.

Men are gonna look no matter what you wear. It's THEIR problem to manage, there's nothing YOU can do about it.

Ya know, I raised two sons. I raised them to be gentlemen. If they ever found themselves in a room full of naked women, I would trust them to not start molesting them at random. This is because I raised them to be respectful of themselves, and of others. Including women. I did not raise them to see women as something that exists purely to service men. I have a husband, who I would also trust in a room full of naked women. Because, while he may have a sex drive, he does not see women as purely something that is there to service his needs.

I get that it's sarcasm, but calling that woman misogynistic names bothers me anyway.

It bothers me more that entire cultures actually believe women are sluts/asking to be raped/etc etc for showing a little skin.

I totally agree with you. That also bothers me more. I understand there are different gradations of things that are fucked up, but I have pretty much an unlimited capacity to care about those things. I don't think I was handslappy, I just said I'm not okay with it.

I found this quote:

Moslem (sic) women wearing an abaya and pushi (a cape covering the head a face) would arouse great curiosity among the males seated in the coffee-shops. The men would lustfully appraise them as they passed, speculating, sometimes aloud, on the female forms concealed beneath the robes and veils. The garment conceals the figure almost entirely. The only parts exposed were the ankles, and these, as if to taunt them, were covered with glittering anklets. Lacking alternatives, the men would try to divine a woman's appearance and skin colour from the ankles.

In other words, the real way to be modest then is for women to walk around in bikinis. :twisted:

Consider me chastened. I have learnt my lesson about being glib with my use of words. And I have learnt my lesson about judging others for not being instantly enlightened whilst needing to be taught a lesson myself. Thank you to Lissar.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
