Modest is hottest.
If we are teaching girls that the primary objective of dressing “modestly” is to protect males from having sexual thoughts about them then we are teaching that they are:
1. Responsible for others’ thoughts.
2. Primarily sexual objects in need of covering.
Both of these are lies. The saying modest is “hottest,” teaches a girl to dress modestly for the benefit and approval of others, rather than for herself. Our girls deserve better.
