Appropriate or Not? My Thoughts on Booty Shorts and See Through Clothes
Here are a few pictures I was fast enough to catch. But believe me, and I'm sure you can agree, there is much more skin showing outfits out there!
If I'm at the beach or a water park, I'll expect to see more skin. But there are parts of bodies exposed that should not be seen at Disneyland, restaurants, and even church. Yes, church. I've been tempted a few times to go up to these young ladies dressed inappropriately and advise them on their attire.
At Mass a few weeks ago, Father Anthony hit it on the head! He put words to my feelings towards these girls who are inappropriately dressed, especially at church. Here at about 8:15Father Anthony talks about modesty and appropriate dress saying, "Dress in a way that will not cause your brothers and sisters to sin with interest eyes..." He also talks about how the "male mind" works. At this point in mass, I gave my husband a "I told you so" look since he's been on the receiving end of my rants the last few weeks. He agreed with Father Anthony's message.
Seeing these girls inappropriately dressed, we make judgments, have thoughts, or opinions. I'd rather not have those thoughts and opinions. I'd rather not have my kids or my husband have to see those girls, especially at church. But if these girls don't care that other people think, to each his own! But I might have to give a few girls a "gentle reminder" of appropriate dress next time it happens at church =)
