Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Stop Making My 12 Year Old Stare? June 17, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Matthew Jacobson from MatthewLJacobson.com – Modesty and What My 12 Year Old Son Has to do With How You Dressed Today

Editor’s note: So typical that this guy makes it all about the wrong choices of everyone else instead of trying to teach his son not to stare, to take responsibility for where his eyes and thoughts roam. This type of thinking only continues to drive Rape Culture, treating women like objects to ejaculate to and men into little more than beasts unable to control their sex drives. Every woman in the world is not responsible for this kid’s struggle with purity!

But I’m hoping that you, too, care about the impact you may be having on my young son . . . on all the young sons . . . who are becoming sexually aware young men. If you’ve not thought about modesty and how the way you dress affects a young boy coming of age, would you be willing to consider these things?

We live in community. I’m striving to do my part as his dad. Will you consider the positive part you can play when you get dressed in the morning? We may never know each other, personally, but that doesn’t mean my son won’t encounter you at the store, airport, or State Fair. Just because you don’t know him personally doesn’t mean you’re not having a major impact on a young boy somewhere.

No one is advocating burqas before breakfast but don’t buy into the spirit of the age that says however sexy you dress makes no difference because, friend, I can tell you, it matters a great deal to my 12 year-old son who is becoming a man and desires to be a loving, faithful, husband and father some day.

‘Thank you” to all the thoughtful women out there, for thinking of others and, in essence, for thinking of my son.
