I skimmed over this thread when it was 1-2 pgs and read some opinions. I didn't have a reason to post until now. I will say that I am in the middle of not being overly modest or overly revealing clothing.
I have 2 dd's through marriage and their mother's choose clothes and make-up for them. I don't always like every choice but don't make them change unless we are going to church or somewhere that it will be a hazzard or something like camping
Youngest dd is 10 older one is 13]
Youngest wears some outfits for dance that tight, short, ect but not exposing any actual personal parts. At the recital last week I noticed some men watching some of the girls in the worst way. Ugh it made me sick to my stomach. I noticed some of the girls wore white form fitting body suits with no bras and everything was visible. Some of these girls have very developed bodies. I felt like I was the only one in the auditorium having this awful feeling and kept looking at my dh to see if he noticed or if he was looking at them too
but it didn't appear that way.
Then came a group of girls probably age 9-13 and they had REALLY short shorts, high boots, half shirts, berets, and stocking on. They did a bootie shake song and thrusted their little bodies around in adult way. The lyrics were about the bootie and the body -this time dh actually turned to me with his jaw dropped.
I hate it! I don't want guys looking at our dd's like they are sexual. They put tons of make-up on the girls too for showy appearance. Some of them remind me of Jon Bennet Ramsey(spelling).
I am having an internal struggle now. I am looking around to see who's looking at my dd's all the time now. I also can't really change it if their mom s think it is ok.
Sorry it s a vent but it ties in with why some people like their kids covered.
When I was a growing up their were lots of times I was gropped , grabbed, and propositioned in sexual nature. Family members, prison, ect all involved.
I know why should someone have to be modest because of some guy's perverted problems but if someone is drooling over your dd right in front of you ...it feels blech.
