Today my attention has been drawn to the latest trending topic on social media. You can be forgiven for thinking it had to do with the police killing people or terrorist attacks. No it was about something much more important than that. It was about personal fashion choices.
Apparently Ayesha Curry, wife of NBA superstar Steph Curry, made an off remark on today's fashion trend of women wearing as little as possible which caused a great many to become upset. Many attacked her with degrading remarks about her and her family all because of her personal fashion choices. No, I think not. People were offended because of their life choices and the results of those choices.
Mrs. Curry is not the enemy. She did not single out anyone on this issue. She simply expressed her personal opinion. Yet some people, mostly women were greatly offended by her proclamation on fashion trends.
My guess is that a lot of people felt persecuted and got caught up in their feelings. I am pretty confident that they have heard similar sentiments expressed by other people in their lives such as parents, siblings, relatives, friends, maybe even potential mates. They didn't like it then and they sure aren't going to like it now.
The thing is that people need to understand that Mrs. Curry is just an individual who is entitled to have an opinion just like anyone else. That is of course what fashion is all about, people expressing views about what people wear.
The current fashion trend is for women to wearing very little clothing. If they can get away with it even going full nude. I have been told that this is empowering to women because they are taking ownership of their bodies and not what men society thinks they should be. They say they don't care what other people think.
This is 100% correct. A woman can wear or not wear whatever she wants. It is also 100% correct that people are going to express an opinion on those choices. Chances are if you are going against common sensibilities they are going to let you.
In our society how one dresses has always been used as a sign of the person's status and character. That really hasn't changed much today. This is why when most people go to a job interview or have an important business meeting they dress as conservatively as possible. Cleavage disappears and skirts get longer when there is money or mother-in-law's approval on the line.
I know there are a lot of men that are happy that they get to see so many women showing their bodies as a demonstration of female power. You can hop on instagram and see half dressed and naked women in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Fat girls (their words not mine) have decided that they like being naked too.
My advice to ladies that feel that need/want to show a lot of skin to get attention, don't. Just because you can doesn't mean that you should. This goes double for my Christian trying to do God's work sisters out there.
Always remember that he who finds a wife finds a good thing. Make sure that you are that good thing. If that is what you are going for of course.
