Jesus said go forth and multiply....so get real with this sin buisness attached to being moved by a womens figure or dress.
What are you people thinking anyway..? God didn't make the sexy componants or something?

Most healthy men like young women....16-25....after that age theres no point in looking.
So for most of the female population theres really nothing to get in a huff about !

We may make a joke...but it's too real for most women in the middle east. Have you read "Not Without My Daughter"...I was
No - but I saw the movie in the theatres when it came out. I was only a teenager but I was crying so hard that people were looking at me! Actually, that happens to me a lot...

Time to go to rehearsal - I need to find a trash bag that I can dance in...
Oh - and can't forget the breathing holes!

Excuse me!!! Well, I guess, since I'm 34 now, I should just stop trying to dress nice or wear makeup or do my hair since I obviously turned hideous on my 26th bday!!!

Guess it is time for this story once again.

I grew up in a Pentecostal Holiness Church. I actually started going there when things were much milder. Anyway, each year our church held their annual beach picnic on the weekend of our annual Carnival (the island of St. Thomas shuts down) because we were told that we had to separate ourselves from those sinners. Now, because the church was obsessed with what women wear or what they did not wear, the females were reminded the week before that NO bathing suits were allowed because, well, "they caused men to sin."

So here was the solution. The women were instructed to wear big t-shirts and an optional skirt beneath it or they could wear dresses to go into the water. Now at this point, I would like ALL of you to take a moment to get a visual of church women coming out of the water in wet t-shirts and dresses and then reflect for another moment on the complete ASSNESS (yes, we use that word back home) of the situation as it creates something completely PLEASINGINLY counter-productive!

The funny thing was, some of the younger girls, in protest, would go to the far end of the beach and wear bikinis instead. The guys who knew they were over there would barely pay attention to them because the ones in the church sanctioned wear got all of it AND the attention too.

Men lust no matter what women wear.

Generally speaking, I do think women are very immodest nowadays. However, that does not "cause" a man to sin. It does expose him to something that may cause him to lust - but if he follows through, then it is his own responsibility.

I'm amazed at what I see in public nowadays....whatever happened to feminine modesty?

No I don't think women need to wear veils or anything that covers them like a sheet, but back in the day, women dressed well and conducted themselves like LADIES.

A woman doesn't have to expose herself, to be attractive.

Hmmm. I'm 35. My husband, a very healthy manly man, strongly disagrees with you. He'd like to meet you out back.
