Sorry, guys, but this is a total myth. Women are VERY "visual", too. Nothing "sinful" about it, unless you choose it to be. For the most part, women are usually better able to control their sexual urges, but not as a rule.
That's exactly right!! Men are not the only ones who are "visual" and it's up to the individual to not turn what they see as pleasing into some sort of sexual sin. Why is that so stinking hard? Just enjoy the view!

I think I had a post where I did mention something on this. About how, by the logic used here, men shouldn't where tight pants or whatever.

Still I think there are studies that indicate women really are less visual in their attractions. (Although glutes/buttocks is an appearance attractant to women) Does this mean women don't lust or lust over superficial qualities? Not at all. However I think women are said to be attracted more by smell and signs of outward success. Things I've heard from women in different shows, and in real life, is the kind of shoes a guy wears can be attractive. So men should wear bland shoes, avoid anything that highlights the butt-area, and avoid smelling good when in church. (Not saying they should stink, just use some bland smelling non-deodorant soap or something) As well as my earlier ideas of avoiding should pads or tight pants.

(I should be okay as I never wear any cologne or after-shave, can't wear shoes due to deformed feet, and wear rather bland clothing in general)

Mandating, dictating, or "suggesting" clothing for women is simply another tool of control for organized religion and a pathetic attempt to blame women for mens character weakness.

So let's see if I have this straight.

According to your Moderator cut: deleted, your god created women as man's companion. He also, according to Moderator cut: deleted had a lot of design input, i.e. to cause an attraction by the man I assume.

So when the design works, i.e. the man appreciates what he sees when looking at a woman, then it is a sin.

Yea, that makes sense, well at least as much sense as anything about living life based on Moderator cut: deleted does.

Yup. The devil made me do it. It's not MY fault.

I don't care if a woman goes to the store naked. It's up to men to figure out how to control their urges. I find it funny that my OB/GYN has no issue with this and he sees parts of women you'd never see in public. How DOES he manage?

It has always been so!
Genesis 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou (GOD) gavest to be with me...she gave me of the tree, and I did eat...

Not only that Adam blamed the woman for his fall, he also blamed GOD for giving him her...

I wouldn't rely on a manipulated book of fiction as my life's blueprint. But that's just me.......
