Quote# 28856

When I was first born again, I wore clothing that exposed my legs. I wore pants, and I put on tight shirts. Not once did it occur to me that I was ‘displaying’ my body to others. I wore my clothes according to the weather and for my comfort but not according to the scriptures! One of my greatest convictions was realizing that in displaying my body, I was disobeying (sinning against) the Lord and possibly causing others to stumble.


However, let’s be honest here ladies... men love to look at women. There are certain parts of our bodies that they lust after. There are many parts that they desire to look at. Our legs, our behinds, our chests, our waistlines etc... Some men are attracted to women’s arms and calves.

[Bible verses...]

I surely did not want to cause lust in a brother by giving him something to look at. I began to see that concealing my body was an extremely important part of living a godly life. I began to wear skirts instead of pants. Pants were not modest on me and there was no way of getting around it. They hugged my behind, clung to my thighs and clasped my crotch. Not very modest I shortly realized. I then soon changed what I wore over my chest area as that is one of the most pronounced parts of my body. My goal was to divert attention from it, not draw attention to it. It didn’t take long before my entire wardrobe was completely changed.


Modest apparel apparently isn’t enough without the shamefacedness and sobriety. The scriptures teach that a godly woman should be modest not only in our appearance, but also in our behavior. What is shamefacedness? I learned that it means to have “downcast eyes,” to be “bashful.” A godly woman should be soft, gentle, quiet and shy. Never loud, boisterous, impulsive or domineering.

Yes, the woman's body is the evil work of the devil and should be hidden at all costs. :headdesk:

Long skirts, eyes down, obedience...

She is really turning me on.

Doctor Whom

@inmate22841: LOL!

You'd think that the Intelligent Designer, if that worried about it, could have fixed it so that men were less turned on by visual stimuli. Oh, I remember now: Everything good is evidence of Creation, while everything bad is the result of the Fall.

Did anyone else fap as vigorously as I did when they came across that hawt description of how snugly Louise's clothes fit her ample bosom and firm buttocks?!? :P

If a man lusts after you and stumbles is his problem. By the way, since when do Pants not cover the body?

9/11/2007 9:02:54 AM


But I thought we were created in your god's image. So doesn't that mean god is indecent?

9/11/2007 9:10:02 AM

You have been brainwashed by a cult. Please seek professonal help.

I'd say your problems arise from shopping for clothes in the childrens' section. Either you're gigantic or your clothes are tiny.

9/11/2007 9:18:11 AM


Where the hell were you buying your 'indecent' clothes from? The spray paint aisle?

I will never, even, be ashamed of myself. Perhaps ashamed of my actions at times, because everyone makes mistakes, but never of myself as a person.

I have absolutely nothing to do with the attentions of "godly" men who might slobber after me like the unrestrained dogs you seem to think they are just because I'm wearing something other than five layers of garbage bags. Maybe your Christian men can't control themselves just because they see a flash of stomach or leg, but most of the guys I know aren't in any danger of being outright tempted to fuck me right there just because they can see a little bit of skin.

Lady, let me put it this way: I walked around downtown Toronto, Ontario in an open jacket, a bra, and very short jean shorts. Now, some people might call me a whore for that, other people might not. Some people might accuse me of trying to tempt men and get their attention, and some might not. In truth, I was wearing it because it was a costume and I was having fun. The point is, whatever my intention, no one ran up to me and berated me for trying to tempt them away from God.

And if your God can be defeated by my boobs, then He's in a really sad state of affairs, isn't he?

I will never be bashful, and I will never turn my eyes downcast -- whether in deference to a man or anyone else -- because I believe that I'm no less valuable than someone else just because he has a penis and I don't.

So fuck you, Louise. Fuck you.

Actually, an advice to your Christian brother. If there is a woman who wears pants or a skirt. Turn your head, don't think about it and carry on with your life. My brother never fucks a woman who is not his wife and he travels at least ten times a year to Las Vegas.

Louise, your burqa awaits you. All you need to wear underneath is a little mascara.

9/11/2007 9:53:28 AM


My what an unusual doormat! Oh! Its you Louise I hardly recognize you now!

9/11/2007 10:00:25 AM


I bought skinny jeans this weekend :D
gosh, I gonna be a stumbling block for every good christian man!

9/11/2007 10:11:53 AM


Wear a burka and you'll be fine.

9/11/2007 10:30:40 AM


"They hugged my behind, clung to my thighs and clasped my crotch."

ok, who's jealous of those trousers? =P

9/11/2007 10:40:27 AM


See, us non-christian men, have self-control and discipline. Of course we appreiciate beautiful girls. But they can wear what they want, and at very worst we should be happy and appreciative when they show off.

Its rude to start staring, and even worse to start berating them for it. Unlike bro-randy's gang, we're not led around by our dicks. We decide where they go.

If your supposedly gawdly men can't control themselves from seeing a bit of skin, then obviously their intentions are far darker to begin with than the rest of us. You fundies claim seeing a bit of elbow makes it your fault you got raped, yet the rest of us can sit at a strip-bar and never once even slip up and touch.

If "good christian men + slightly skimpy clothing = rape and blame the victim", and "moderates or nontheists + utterly naked girls = not even a touch or thought of doing something horrible like you guys" ... its pretty obvious who's got the better morals and upbringing.

Holy crap!
The female gender of a species can enchance her physical appearance so the male gener becomes attracted to her!

Clearly, God allows men to lust after women to test them!

9/11/2007 10:52:58 AM


a miracle, god does exist: she was delivered clothed.

9/11/2007 10:54:13 AM


a burkha honey will solve all your problems

9/11/2007 10:55:20 AM


Wow... she certainly went into detail.

She's still a tool though.

9/11/2007 11:15:45 AM


"I Am A Doormat" Award nthed.

9/11/2007 11:16:01 AM


Sucks to be you, hun.

9/11/2007 11:37:41 AM


Here's your burqa.

Now shut up and clean the kitchen.

9/11/2007 11:49:09 AM


That's right, Louise. Be a zombie mummy for your version of God.

9/11/2007 11:52:47 AM


Someone sure thinks highly of herself.
