Immodesty Meets Reality
The only possible motives for women intentionally showing off their bodies, namely their cleavage, are:
- No one can tell that they can’t
- If you got it, flaunt it.
- Everyone else is doing it.
If we wrap all of these into one Idea for the sake of illustration, we see the real problem with intentional immodesty. This idea is no different than Mary and her little lamb-everywhere Mary went, her lamb was sure to follow.
If Mary goes left, the lamb goes left. She can’t go anywhere outside where the lamb will not pursue her.
The aforementioned Idea’s lamb is unwanted attention. Idea cannot ever hope to go out in public where Unwanted Attention will not follow. Unwanted Attention will pursue Idea no matter where it goes.
Immodesty is contrary to human nature and that will never change. Unwanted attention will never be banished by political correctness, indoctrination, anger or violence. Unwanted Attention will always persist in the chase.
Even if women were modest and chaste, unwanted attention would still exist. However, it would be much less aggressive.
Immodesty activates the hunger of Unwanted Attention and it will not be satisfied by anything that Idea thinks or wishes. Unwanted Attention is primal and not subject to reasoning.
The only way Unwanted Attention can be controlled is by degrees. Lower the temperature and Unwanted Attention slows down and becomes less active.
In a strange twist, Idea also seems to be lacking the ability to reason. No matter what anyone says or does, Idea persists in the hopeless idea that they can put a leash on Unwanted Attention and control it. This is impossible as long as Idea exists.
Fighting against the impossible is like yelling at a mountain to move out of our way.
Immodest women will never be able to control who notices them. When an attractive woman walks into a room, everyone-men, boys, women and girls-all turn to watch. It’s human nature and will not change.
If that is true of women in general, it would obviously be more pronounced if she were half-dressed.
Yet, immodest women still insist that only attractive men will notice their immodesty. Undesirable men will ignore them because, well, they just should. No intellectual reason, just coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Judah perceived that Tamar was available because of where she was and how she was dressed (Genesis 38).
Intentionally immodest women are proclaiming themselves available sexually and nothing can change that fact. Idea can get mad, yell, protest and picket.
Immodesty can stand and yell at that mountain until they are hoarse and that mountain isn’t moving.
