The Godly Truth About Bikinis - FINALLY Someone Gets It!



  • 2014-06-24T20:14:12

Why is the lesson to be learned here that girls need to be modest as opposed to that boys need to be taught not to view women as objects or tools? I don't even wear bikinis, but that's my personal choice. I understand that some bikinis that are more string than material are a bit far fetched. But it really is a girl's choice whether she wants to wear a bikini and they do offer a bit more freedom and movement. Why are girls being blamed for the way boys view them? Why will no one take the step to say, "Maybe we need to teach our sons how to respect women's bodies"?

The funny thing is...she says "Power is more attainable when women dress modestly"; when those women were "modest" way back when...they also couldn't vote. Ironic.

Aaron Brown Do you really want to get into the debate of the Biblical canon? Are you trying to make the claim scripture cant be trusted because people agreed on which books would be added?

Tim Buckle I'm always amazed that any kind of moral teachings on behalf of the parents is called ''brainwashing'' nowdays.

Lois Paschke Why don't you actually look up the study and read it for yourself? You will find that it was a very shallow study and not worth much.

Cam Crowder I agree with you. Although it was a very good lecture on modesty and I agree modesty is important, the so called studies of a mans brain is ridiculous! The men that were affected that way are obviously pigs and would most likely see women as objects regardless of what they are wearing. We as women shouldn't be afraid of what to wear because some men out there are pigs. It's like saying it was a woman's fault she was raped, because she danced with the guy first.

It is one thing for women to "cover up" out of their own belief, whether it be because they believe in the rules of modesty set forth in the Bible or because they simply feel more comfortable wearing "more", if you will. But saying that it is necessary for women to dress a certain way because of the way that men react to it, as this video does, is a completely different issue in itself. It is not my responsibility, nor the responsibility of any other woman to bend to the every whim of the men around us. Frankly, most women, when wearing bikinis, don't care one bit what the men around them think. That's empowerment. That is feeling comfortable in your own body. Telling someone to cover themselves up because you can't control your testosterone is so incredibly patronizing and superior that it puts us back almost 100 years. If men don't respect women in a bikini, then they're not going to respect them in a one-piece or a full business suit for that matter. So next time you men go to the pool/beach, why don't you keep all of your clothes on as not to arouse the women around you. We wouldn't want you to feel inferior and objectified.

Consider the implication of the Word on the topic of modesty, taste, and respect: 1 Corinthians 8 Now concerning food offered to idols: we know that “all of us possess knowledge.” This “knowledge” puffs up, but love builds up. 2 If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. 3 But if anyone loves God, she is known by God. 4 Therefore, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that “an idol has no real existence,” and that “there is no God but one.” 5 For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”—6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. 7 However, not all possess this knowledge. But some, through former association with idols, eat food as really offered to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 8 Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do. 9 But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol's temple, will he not be encouraged, if his conscience is weak, to eat food offered to idols? 11 And so by your knowledge this weak person is destroyed, the brother for whom Christ died. 12 Thus, sinning against your brothers and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble.

Well, what a way to shame women into buying $100 bathing suits. The "hipster" bottoms that she sells are pretty "itsy bitsy".

Mark Winstanley How does someone telling women to be comfortable with their own bodies and for men to guard their thoughts have anything to do with Cam and his or her preference to see skin?

The actual study she's referencing says the exact opposite of what she's saying. The study shows that only men who are inclined toward hostile sexism view women as objects, not men who are chivalrous, etc. The study shows that most men don't actually show a change, only those who are already against women and are inclined to believe that rape is okay. She misinterpreted the study by looking at it through a summary in National Geographic rather than looking at the study herself.

The bible states what is appropriate to wear. I suggest you read it!

Tiffany Kaluzny What about little boys? I attended the movie "Titanic" and afterwards in the bathroom, what do you think the two third graders were talking about? At that young age that one scene in the movie had an impact on their view of women. I've always been surprised that those who say they want to stand up for women don't deluge the advertisers, etc. who try to sell using sex and force them to stop using women as tools - no personality, just a beautiful body. That's been the refreshing thing about a few of the ads lately that actually have women who have real personalities and don't flaunt their bodies (Toyota and Progressive insurance).
