Remember when I told you that I have a Big Mouth and that I will probably offend someone I like very much with one of my blogs? Well, here's just the blog to do it. When I first heard about Moms for Modesty I immediately went to check it out. As the mother of an adolescent daughter, the sexualization of children's clothing is a big deal for me. I get incredibly steamed when well meaning friends and relatives give Bunnie clothing that can only be described as sleazy. There is absolutely nothing in this world that sets my jaw tighter than seeing a little girl walking around with her bum hanging out her low slung, high cut shorts wearing a tee shirt with a smutty logo across the chest. So I was thrilled to see many of my fellow moms getting involved in a "modesty movement" and I rushed on over to read this:
*I believe that true beauty comes from within and I strive to teach my daughter(s) this truth.
*I believe that it is unwise and unfair to taunt boys and young men by permitting my daughter(s) to dress in an immodest manner.
