Welcome to Bikini Verklempting Season! – Modesty Screeds

Welcome to Bikini Verklempting Season! – Modesty Screeds May 17, 2019

Found this on Facebook. The person that reposted it had scratched out the name of the original author. I wish they had not because ignorance this deep combined with treating men like uncontrollable animals needs to be exposed for the ugly it is. This is so deeply misogynistic and demeaning to both women and men.

Every single year we can track the seasons by the first semi-hysterical rant posted by a QF or Evangelical or Fundamentalist woman claiming that women out there were defrauding their sons and husbands. Bikinis and yoga pants, oh my! Someone might just figure out there are breasts and bottoms in that clothing and become aroused.

Picks self off floor from laughing! Modesty in Los Angeles summers filled with unbearable heat? Oh please! Why on earth would anyone live in Los Angeles, home of the entertainment business which sells by sexual innuendo, and expect a pure culture with women wearing jumpers and loose dresses? That would be like me moving to an Islamic country and demanding they put pork on the menu of every restaurant. I love my bacon, but that’s a bit too far to expect any entire culture to change for little old me.

Every single year as soon as the daffodils start shedding their petals the Modesty Police pop up. They show up reminding everyone that the males in their families are not capable of seeing collar bones or ankles without it creating an erection.

They want to make women the gatekeepers to the sexuality of men. It’s not our role, right or responsibility. Funny how outside of the high demand religious organization bubble men somehow manage not to rape, molest or sexually abuse women around them wearing different clothing.

And we’re there, one of the most damning and damaging ideas in many branches of Christianity. Men are animal in nature and cannot control their impulses for sex. This reduces men to fully less than human, uncontrollable beasts that must copulate with every stray female that hints at the secondary sexual features of their bodies. Women being responsible for the sexual behavior of men.

May I remind you of some of the stranger posts we’ve done on the subject.
