The C-Train, otherwise known as…the C-Train, has published a post on “modest attire” for our womenfolk.
What can I say? Only a generation raised on Britney Spears and Paris Hilton would regard such attire as anything another that highly provocative. Notice that there are still patches of bare skin showing! Such are the depths of decadence to which the younger generation have sunk that such suggestive attire would be seen as the least bit conservative.
For truly discreet attire, you need to go to this website:
Humor aside, there is a serious issue here. On the one hand, Islamic culture epitomizes misogynism. Since, however, Muslim men are wired just like any other normal man, this generates a contradiction between their credo and their libido, which, in turn, generates a love/hate attitude towards women. Muslim men can’t help finding women appealing. They have a natural need for the love of a woman.
And yet their ethical system is uptight to the nth degree. They will kill themselves for their 72 virgins in paradise while, at the very same time, they will kill others for holding a beauty pageant. They will gang-rape a woman and then stone her to death in an “honor” killing because she has brought shame on herself and her family. The whole culture is pathological.
On the other hand, American pop culture has gone to the other extreme. It’s easy for libertines to make fun of Christian “hang-ups,” but the Christians are the realists. The sex drive has a capacity both to unite and to divide. Within proper bounds, it is a constructive force; out-of-bounds, it is a destructive force.
Men have a hair-trigger arousal mechanism based on visual cues. It’s purely involuntary.
The power of the sex drive needs to be respected because it can either be a social adhesive or else a social solvent. If marriage is a social glue, premarital and extramarital sex are social acids.
Anne Landers once said that a female should show enough to let you know she’s a woman, but keep enough out of sight to let you know she’s a lady.
