“Is Liking Modest Girls Sexist?”

Dress from modcloth.com.

Apparently, one of the google searches that led to my blog recently asked this question:

is liking modest girls sexist

No, it isn’t. It’s only sexist if you think every girl should dress in a manner that you (and/or your interpretation of God) find pleasing. If you’re just into loose clothing with long hemlines, more power to you. If you think every girl needs to dress that way, or you make judgments about a girl’s character based on her dress in a way that you wouldn’t judge a guy, that is sexist.

Thanks for asking!
