You would think that by living in a primarily Amish neighborhood, and by living right next to a children's park, that we wouldn't be as affected by this... but you'd be wrong.
Just yesterday I saw a pretty blonde high school girl walking down the street in shorts that looked like underwear and a tank-top that exposed her bra... And, this is public decency?
So many have chimed in on what is or is not appropriate for people to wear? What is or is not acceptable in God's eyes. According to God, exposing your thigh is exposing your nakedness.
And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach: Exodus 28:42
Shorts should really be out of the question. Not only do ALL shorts show your thighs, but also they are equivalent to underwear these days...
Sometimes I wish that people could just understand what they are doing. Why is it that adultery is skyrocketing and becoming normal? Only 100 years ago, it was SO taboo for someone to cheat on their spouse... these days, it's almost expected. Why is it that teenagers are engaging in premarital sex and having children(or aborting)? Why is it that pornography is seen as normal? Only 80 or so years ago it was seen as a dirty thing that you had to find on the black market. Why are kids dating at younger and younger ages?
Now, obviously, I can't blame all of that on immodest clothing... but it plays a BIG role. Other things that play a role would be the sexual music, tv shows, movies, the lives of celebrities(who children and others idolize)... and so much more. I just wish it would all go away.... but it won't.
What do you think of the immodest clothing around the warmer seasons? Does it bother you as much as me? Tell me in the comments.
