Do You Show Some Cleavage, Wear Mini-Skirts and Stilettos? Then You're A Slut.

Yeah, that’s right, you’re a slut. Well, according to this lovely Christian, God-fearing woman anyway.

She despairs of young Christian women being a bit too liberal in their choice of clothing, and she urges them to cover up, lest the young men leer at them and assume that they are all kinds of sluttish goodness, instead of the future leaders that they are.

I notice that she has no such expectations of the men, because after all, they are stupid creatures who find it impossible to control their very natural baser instincts.

The blogger writes:

“Women will be future leaders, too, and I was dismayed to see how many of them either looked frumpish or like two-bit whores.

First, are these young people being taught anything by their parents? I was at another service-oriented gathering of young women where the girls were in tight bandeau-skirts (you know, the kind of tube-top skirts that hookers wear on street corners?). They were sitting with their mothers. What is going on here?

Second, have women so internalized feminist dogma that they see themselves in only two ways? Butch, men-lite wannabes or 3rd wave sluts who empower themselves by screwing every available horndog man?

Neither path is a way to self-love and respect, mind you. Both tracks will inhibit future success.”

Listen, we’re all human, so we’re all bound to be judgemental, what annoys me are people being judgemental, but trying to pass it off as caring critique.

The blogger continues:

“Women, if you’re at a conference where you’re learning to be a future politician or wish to succeed in the business of politics, dress the part. No, you don’t have to be in a business suit with pearls. However, modesty is a minimum. So:

1. No cleavage. That’s right. Cover that up. I say “no” in absolutist terms because women will show a tiny bit and that’s okay, but really, in a business environment where ideas are the priority, a dude thinking about your ta-tas is counter-productive.

2. Skirts no more than three finger-widths above the knee. Why do I even have to write this? Well, because someone is allowing these girls out of the house with mini-skirts that reveal too much.

3. Save the stilettos for Saturday night on a date with your boyfriend.

4. Bend at the knee. No, I don’t want to see your butt.

Young women, you degrade your own value by dressing and then acting the ho.

I cannot even tell you how many girls have told me that all they want is to get married and have babies. They do not seem to make the connection that a young man is not interested in getting married and making babies with a girl who is so easy as to have a one-night stand over a CPAC weekend (or any other weekend.)

You know what a guy thinks when you slut-it-up? He thinks: If she’ll do that with me, she’ll do that with anyone.”

My usual clothing choices don’t include short skirts, or cleavage-baring tops, (as it happens, I did show some of my lady-bumps at a Christmas party last year, but the dress was exquisite, and my cleavage looked amazing!) but the majority of my shoes are sky-scrapers. The higher the better. I wear ridiculously high heels at business meetings, as well as when I’m out on the town, and I certainly don’t consider myself a slut, but I guess you live and learn huh?

Anyway,I don’t know why I’m so surprised, it’s not like I don’t know that those who preach the word of God are some of the most judgemental people I’ve ever met. Sigh.

  • I see her point. I grew up and church and due to that experience I’m not very religious. 😛 My father is a pastor so some Sundays I get there at the very end of service to spend some time with my Pops. And I do think when I see some of the younger girls did you wake up in your club clothes and decided to come? And why would you show up to work with a skirt so short you wouldn’t have to undress to get a pap smear.

    Now, where I leave any and all agreement with this chick is that somehow because they dress in a certain way they are sluts or it makes them look sluttish. If I put on a habit it sure as shit wouldn’t make me nun.

    And this “Butch, men-lite wannabes” simply made my head explode. I’m sure she also believes if you wear red lipstick you’re definitely a Jezebel.

    So, I agree, wear something appropriate for where you are. That’s common sense. I honestly can’t see how what you wear requires a morality judgment. As for shoes, well, I have a fetish so I’m totally guilty of wearing nose-bleed high heels.

  • I do just fine in a butch, manlike wannabe way. Of course, I drive a semi for a living, so I may not be the best judge of that…
