I completely agree with you!!  I grew up in a super religious family and got this lecture about keep men’s heart pure by not dressing immodestly!! To me it never made any sense,  I kept thinking how could it be my fault if some guy had not so good thoughts….no matter how I dressed!  Ugh drives me crazy to think that people push things like this!

Absolutely agree. People like to pull out the “modesty” card in cases of sexual assault/harassment, but excuse you – grandmothers in high-necked flannel nightgowns get raped, too. Men need to learn to control THEMSELVES. The idea that women should have to dress a certain way to keep men from going crazy does a huge disservice to MEN – it’s implying that they’re nothing but slop-brained morons who can’t control their thoughts or actions.

I agree with you 100%. With viewpoints like those, how are we ever going to achieve equality?

I have no problem with someone dressing “immodestly” if it has to do with their sense of style.  However, it IS sad to see people dress in a fashion that elicits attention due to low self-esteem or an attention-grabby nature.

@BridieBea:  What.the.heck.   How is this even a real thing?!??

“Modesty: a way of living that women aspire to be” ???  Did you look at their other boards? “Swimming modestly”!!!

Ok, I could understand this if it were coming from women (sort of) – but a bunch of MEN sitting around telling women how to be more modest?? Shut up!!

Yeesh.  I dress pretty modestly because that’s what’s comfortable for me, but a bunch of guys saying how girls should dress and act is really annoying.
