We live in a broken world.
We bash and judge people left and right, and we label them before we even get the chance to know them.
I’ve wanted to write about the topic of women’s clothing choices for a long while, but I just haven’t found the words until now.
If a girl’s bra strap is showing, we automatically label her ‘immodest’.
If a girl’s hair is shorter than shoulder-length, we automatically label her ‘immodest’.
If a girl is wearing *gasp* pants or shorts, we automatically label her ‘immodest’.
I’m sorry, but that’s crappy.
I’m apparently a rebellious teenager.
I feel as if I can never get my bra to stay in place, so the straps are pretty much always visible.
I still want to cut my hair really short, but I have to wear it in a bun for ballet.
I’ve worn a skirt/dress once this month. ONLY ONCE. I pretty much always wear pants or shorts.
Ohh I’m such a rebel.
I read blog posts about modesty ALL DA FREAKING TIME, but I don’t usually agree with them.
Modesty seems to be a popular topic in the teen Christian girl blogosphere at the moment. I think that’s really cool, but some people have pretty twisted opinions.
When people hear the word modesty, they automatically think “Oh, that means I should cover every single inch of my body!”
We’ve all heard the “showing skin distracts the boys” spiel, right? So funny.
Or the one that goes “you’re not honoring God if you wear that tank top!” Absolutely hilarious.
Yes, we should dress our bodies to honor God, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to avoid wearing pants and anything that might potentially show my bra.
And I’m not going wear a skirt because “women lose their femininity when they wear pants.”
(Yes, I actually have heard that before)
This post needs to end in just a second or else it’s going to get very rambly and long, so I’ll leave you with this:
• Don’t let society decide what you should wear.
• You do you, but still listen to your parents. If they tell you not to wear something, it’s because they love you.
• Listen to the women who came before you. They made those fashion mistakes so you don’t have to.
• Your clothing choices DO NOT make God love you any less.
• Life is short. Buy the dress.
• Don’t judge people based on their appearance. You have no idea what it’s like to be them.
I pray that no one took the post in the wrong way. This is strictly my opinion.
