What's with all the skin?

Modesty-(noun) the act of showing reserve in behavior or clothes.

"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 

-1 Corinthians 6:19-20

"Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control.." 1 Timothy 2:9

You've seen the dictionary definition of modesty.. and you've seen what the bible has to say about it. So why am I still seeing so much skin everyday, and the most recent disaster.. Halloween. 

This may be appealing to the disgusting guys who are only out for one thing.. and will get you all the attention you're begging for.. but do you really think this is favorable in God's eyes? I mean, do you really have to dress like THIS to feel beautiful or feel good about yourself? Do you really need to broadcast your double D breasts and butt cheeks to attract the man of your dreams? If so, you need help.

I don't understand why girls feel the need to dress this way. All you're doing is portraying yourself as easy.. and guys will see you as a piece of meat, not the beautiful princess of God that you really are. A guy's dream is to have a smart girl, a bass pro shops girl, and a victoria's secret girl all in one. Guys want to hookup with the girls who are purposefully exposing cleavage and wearing shorts up their cracks at the local club.. but do you think he's going to marry you after that one night stand? No. Because no guy wants to marry a girl that he got in one night. You know why? If he got you in one night.. who knows how many other guys have gotten you into their bed as well. Also, as most if not every woman knows, men love a challenge. "Hi i'm Jane Doe. Take me home, screw me, and wife me." Sounds like a fairytale doesn't it? Whether you're sexually active or not, you shouldn't be exposing yourself this way. You have no right to complain about all of these jerks you come in contact with who don't respect you.. if you disrespect yourself enough to dress this way. Girls: if you want respect from another person.. you have to learn to respect yourself and your body FIRST. Until you do that, you'll never find your "prince charming." Besides, what kind of girl wants one of those pigs at the club who drools all over you, and is sooo dreamy when he asks to buy you drinks and take you home for the night. You shouldn't! Demand respect, and you'll get it. Also, if you're a mother, you sure as hell shouldn't be dressing like this. If my mom dressed this way when I was a toddler.. oh my gosh. I'd be ashamed to this day. And if you're married or dating someone, respect your significant other and don't expose this much skin when going out in public. That is disrespectful not only to yourself, but to him as well. Leave something to the imagination. I wear more clothes to the beach than what's in this picture. Come on ladies, cover up. Learn to feel beautiful in sweats and a tshirt. When you do, the right guy will love you in those sweats and tshirt.. not in some slutty collection of cloth that some of you are calling an "outfit" these days. I didn't get my Prince Charming's attention by wearing skimpy clothes.. you shouldn't either.

Hope Gabrielle.
