My Jesus likes to party, so I’m sure it’s fine that I wear a bikini. 

And, as for your original question … I avoid those posts at all costs!  What was your response to her, OP?

I usually avoid drama on Facebook… but during the Romney/Obama election one of my old “friends” from high school called Obama the N word, and that he wasn’t a person, just something some “Sh*T out”.

It made my blood boil so badly that I freaked out on him and called him a racist and a few other things… and then I deleted him because i don’t need people like that in my life. 

We are from a small town so during holidays and stuff where people go home its STILL awkward to see him. But I couldn’t just NOT say something. It made me SICK!

I wouldn’t worry about it. I got into a… well… I wouldn’t call it a fight last night…

Other person deliberated goaded me in that passive aggressive way which women (especially older women) are so apt at… the words are perfectly civil, but the subtext is both patronising and exceptionally rude. At first I remained civil, civil enough that two PPs were actually quite shocked at the exchange, at which point the pain in the arse poster said that “young people” were “touchy” and that it wasn’t her fault that she said things that we hadn’t wanted to hear (which nobody asked her to say, and which were completely irrelevant to the topic under discussion). Followed this with a flounce off because we were too “immature” to talk to, and had the nerve to wish us a “blessed night”.

Still seething about it quietly today. B******s be crazy.

Kind of wish I hadn’t fed the trolls though.

I avoid drama on fb at all costs. I think it’s funny to watch it unravel sometimes, but I rarely get involved, unless I feel like those I care for are being g attacked. Plus. I think of who all can find me on Facebook, like coworkers and bosses.

And as for the bikini thing. Modesty is important, but it’s different nowadays too. And I personally do.t think any form of clothing says anything about a person’s spiritual walk with God.

Mrs_Amanda:  I don’t get involved in FB drama. I have only one or two friends who are so adamant about posting their every opinion and doing so in a less than civil/professional way. They’re they type who will argue no matter how much reason/fact is said in return, so what’s the point?

I did almost comment on my dad’s partner’s FB post-he had asked anyone who hadn’t RSVPed to please do so (I admit, he shouldn’t have done it on FB) and one girl went “Well to RSVP we’d have had to be invited .” I was tempted to say something because it was rude, but realized nothing good would have come of that so just moved on.

Mrs_Amanda:  In my opinion and her defense, the ways in which women dress is very relevant. As women mature spiritually, they realize the consequences of their appearance. I’m not going to go into how men are visual and lustful by HUMAN nature, etc. etc etc. However, I will say that as a wife to a man, and a big sister to two young brothers whom all strive to be Godly men, I respect a woman who presents herself modestly in their presence. What is “modest” is very subjective of course.

But then again, the woman on FB who made the original post probably came off as self-righteous and judgemental. No one likes that either.

2BMrsBoudreaux:  I would be careful about this analysis. For example, this is why some Muslim men refuse to shake women’s hands, lest they be tempted.

My personal view is that anyone who is tempted by either my completely unerotic, pasty hand, or by a young woman in a skimpy outfit, has self-control problems which they should work on. Even if a girl walks around naked, that doesn’t excuse the necessity for a man to practise self-control… and if we follow the logic that every temptation allows us to grow, this provides an excellent opportunity.

This is why I don’t particularly care if a scantily clad madam parades herself half-naked in DH’s presence. He is responsible for his actions and thoughts. Not her.

Rachel631:  My response was commentary on the relevance of modesty from a Christian woman’s perspective. I respect your opinion. That being said, I would prefer that my husband and little brothers not be in the presence of parading “scantily clad mesdames.”

I try to stay out of FB drama too, but there have been a couple posts that really piss me off and I can’t help but respond.  I don’t remember them now but they were something like:

-plants have as much right to live as babies (or something that basically said you should save a plant in a fire over a baby because it’s alive too)

-something about how women shouldn’t be held responsible for how they choose to dress (again, I can’t remember it exactly but I’m of the school of thought that you shouldn’t be stupid on purpose and then expect nothing bad to happen to you.  So if you dress like a skank, don’t be surprised when guys try to take advantage of you and spout about how you have the right to wear whatever you want).

-oh and then there was another one about how people without children are somehow better because they’re standing against tradition and not having kids just cause that’s what’s expected (well excuse me, that’s not why I’m having kids.  I want kids because I want to have a family, not because someone expects me to).  Aicarumba I’m getting upset just remembering all this crap!  LOL!
