Comments on: Molly’s Modesty https://www.iheartdavids.com/blog/2008/05/06/mollys-modesty/ It helps me to say these things aloud, I think. Tue, 06 May 2008 21:43:29 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=6.5.4 By: admin https://www.iheartdavids.com/blog/2008/05/06/mollys-modesty/comment-page-1/#comment-1633 Tue, 06 May 2008 21:43:29 +0000 http://www.iheartdavids.com/blog/2008/05/mollys-modesty/#comment-1633 Yeah, I said it was kind of weird. Thanks for articulating the weirdness.

I guess in my opinion I see these young girls today with “less than perfect” figures and I think of them. When a 14 year-old has an unsightly innertube/muffin top because fashions dictate an exposed midriff, I think Molly’s little coverups might be helpful.

But then again, who am I to say a muffin top on a 14 year-old is unsightly? That’s not helping anyone.

Not the clothes; they’re cute and fine. It’s the agenda behind the site that I’m not so agreeable about.

Nothing is wrong with being modest in your dress. It’s the way I roll by default. But *encouraging* excessive modesty as a value in itself smacks of paternalism (even coming from a female designer…). Bodies are bad and something we should be ashamed of. Sewing sleeves on sleeveless dresses?? What, is a little upper arm going to turn a girl into Slutty McSlutterson? Does the skin that covers the humerus hold magical powers to turn men into raging rapists? This does a disservice to both men and women.

Every part of a woman’s body is sexual, and we MUST COVER UP AT ALL COSTS!

Oops. Rubbed me the wrong way. Ah well, nobody ever claimed I was without opinions.
