by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Empowerment By Doing As They Please?
Editor’s note: Oh please! They were pink pussy cat hats, not ‘Vagina Hats’ and I must have missed the sanitary napkin brigade. Lori’s answer to her commenter and her twisting of what was worn at the march shows just how thin-skinned and unthinking she is when challenged. She should be addressing negative comments directly, not erasing them or using them as a launching pad for another horrible post of hers.
Note to Lori: Please do not ever come to Central America if you are that squeamish about what other people wear! Most women I’ve seen here wear very tight leggings, short-shorts and very skimpy swimsuits and you know what?………. no one bats as eyelash, judges them and no men rape them. Imagine that, minding one’s own business and behaving.
In response to yesterday’s post about modesty, I received a comment that I want to write about since many women today have views about life that I don’t understand at all. Recently, there was a march in Cincinnati, Ohio where women took off their tops and walked around topless. In the big March on Washington DC, right after President Trump was inaugurated, the women wore vagina hats and bloody menstrual pads. All of this is beyond comprehension to me since I have never had any desire to do any of this. In fact, these things should cause shame and embarrassment in women.
Here is the comment in question: “Yes, that is exactly what some women believe (that they aren’t in any way responsible for men lusting at them no matter what they wear) because women don’t exist solely for men’s eyes. This is not strange. This is progress and empowerment. If you find empowerment in dressing modestly, please do so. I find empowerment in being able to choose to wear shorts when it’s hot outside (not that it’s anyone’s business but mine). I refuse to take responsibility for your or anyone’s husband or wife’s eyes.”
Therefore, all those women walking around topless and wearing vagina hats are doing this because they “feel” empowered and think this is progress. What is actually happening is that they are finding empowerment in their selfishness and pride. In the last days, the Bible states that people will be lovers of themselves and they will despise those who are good. They are doing the will of their father, the Devil, and are caught in his trap. They falsely believe they are “empowered” but they are actually in bondage to their sin and selfishness.
