The “Quote of the Week” this week comes from an animated discussion on this blog. Several women are discussing with several men the issues of modesty. Hurrah to all! I tend to lean toward the perspective of Joy and Karyn in this particular thread (and that’s not because they are huge tithers in my church), but because I think the following quote states so well what I think is the problem in the way the subject of modesty is addressed. Kudos, Joy!
Modesty cannot be reduced to a Men Are from Mars; Women Are from Venus mentality, Mr. Regal. The reading of many books might contribute to, but they cannot provide, a lasting resolution to the issue. Yes, women and men do think differently and operate according to different priorities; but implying that learnin’ them women what it is they jest cain’t seem ta git thru thar haids about how we men jest suffer so on account of ‘em is not the answer, either.
