And I happen to heartily disagree. What a person chooses to wear should be their own choice, and if they choose to follow a certain style due to their faith (eg covering one’s head) then fine, but I heartily disagree with assuming that someone who isn’t dressed modestly doesn’t have a strong or true faith.
After all, when you get down to a molecular level, we’re no different from anyone else. Or any other species for that matter. And, just think about the upcoming Olympics, or the current French Open tennis, and the sports attire which is/will be worn by the athletes taking part. Is it immodest, or just practical, to wear clothing which exposes the flesh and therefore allows the skin to breathe and perspiration to evaporate?
And what about the constant double standards? And I don’t just mean about how men wear short (and possibly tight) shorts and then jeer at women, but at just how horrible people can be about their own gender.
We are all made in the image of God, and God saw that we were good. (cf Genesis Ch. 1)
If the human body is so despicable that it must be covered up, I’m wondering how people can reconcile that idea with the fact that God created the human race and said that it was good, and with the fact that God came to earth in the human form of Jesus.
Body shaming should be shaming for the person doing the shaming, not the person they’re trying to bully.
