While doing absolutely nothing, I stumbled across a blog post about the “Moms for Modesty”. To sum this “movement” up, it basically has to do with moms who object to the production of, well, slutty looking clothes for girls. Now I may not have a girl, but I can understand. Some of the clothes available for little girls are ridiculously inappropriate. Add that with those fucking Bratz dolls and the ol’ hotel heiress who got famous for sucking dick on camera, and what the hell are girls supposed to think?
While reading the “pledge” of the Moms for Modesty, this particular bullet caught my eye…eventually (I skimmed the list the first time around) :
I believe that it is unwise and unfair to taunt boys and young men by permitting my daughter(s) to dress in an immodest manner.
Ahem. Unfair? Say wha? Since when are members of the opposite sex not responsible for their actions? Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this in the same vein as the “Bitch deserved it, dressing like that” rationalization for rape? One’s manner of dress still manages equates sexual desire and how bad a person must want it? Still??
Reminds me of my ex-asshole, who was convinced that any shirt I wore that was shy of being a turtleneck must have been a deliberate step on my behalf to show the entire male population my tits. For the sole purpose of cheating on him, of course. In reality, I can’t stand anything too close around my neck. I could never wear turtlenecks or high collars cause I feel really claustrophobic with something too snug. I prefer anything that does not creep too high above my collar bone else I feel like it’s going to eat me. (That’s the best way I can describe the feeling.)
But no, I must have been trying to get everyone to look at my boobies.
(I just had a thought. I wonder how effective it would be to respond to those “I can’t make eye contact. Must talk to boobs” people with a nice, friendly, crotch stare down? Someone must try this and tell me what happens.)
Anyway, I recommend that bullet point be rewritten to read:
I really don’t want my daughter to be a cock tease just yet. cause that is essentially what they’re saying.
