Hey, you! In the Duke sweatshirt and jeans!


(The quick version: a Christian site took an exhaustive survey of what clothes girls and women should not wear so as not to tempt the males around them in to sinful thoughts of their dirtypillows, etc. Apparently most things short of a burqa are "stumbling blocks" and thus to be avoided.) Even better than the survey is this comment, by someone who lurks in the Christian site's forums, where they discuss
whether or not girls can dress less modestly around their own families, or whether they might be stumbling blocks to their brothers and fathers. A couple girls have suggested that immodestly dressed girls might tempt their fathers to rape them.
I have no words.
