Just saying, guys around here run around shirtless all the time. 9.9 Why don't they put a shirt on or something? Girls also lust.
And regarding modesty rules: I think the majority of them are extremely stupid. (Now, I'm addressing school here. I thankfully do not know a church that sets out modesty rules. Yikes.) I get that they don't want girls to be wearing something that resembles a lingerie ad. (I'm bolding that because things I plan to say may look like I disprove it.) But for example, my best friend was sent home from school for the entire day last year, missing two tests, just because she wore shorts that were a few inches above the knee. She also wore leggings underneath the shorts, just so she was still covered.
I saw a quote the other day that could apply to this: "When you interrupt a girl's school day because she's wearing a tank top, or her skirt is a half inch too short, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction free learning environment is more important than her education. You are telling her that boys are more entitled to an education than she is."
I understand that the topic is about women. But we should probably discuss guys as well.
