Men's Dress Worn By Women
didishroom Wrote:Why is it 'immodest' for woman to wear pants, but not men?


I would say it depends on the cut and style.

Most men's pants are fairly loose fitting.

A lot of women's pants are cut to be snug around the hips and rear, especially the designer jeans.

However, if a particular pair of women's pants is not tight fitting, I'd say that theose pants would not inherently be immodest.

That is what I said. The Force is strong with this one... :)

Somehow I don't think that it's appropriate to refer to saints as 'skanks', even if we're just joking.

As for the picture, that is all it is. It is not a photograph and so it can not be used to establish historical evidence of her attire. This is just how one artist chose to depict the scene.

Regardless, we're not discussing bodices here, only pants. Her skirt does not outline her innermost thighs or lower glutes.

And I am referring to the immodesty of even non-“grossly improper” styles. I am referring to a woman wearing clothing that outlines, even if not specifically, portions of her body that draws sexual attention from males by nature. Women have “curves”. Men are, by fallen human nature, attracted to these “curves”.

 Considering this is an "if / then" statement, if the "if" is incorrect, it follows that the "then" is likewise false. I shall thus address the "if" in this refutation:

 I never said it was immodest to show any curves at all. I said: "I am referring to a woman wearing clothing that outlines, even if not specifically, portions of her body that draws sexual attention from males by nature."  I am referring to the obvious areas of the femanine physique that are of sexual attraction to a male found beneath the waist such as: innermost thighs, glutes, outermost thighs, anterior waist, etc. Usually, these are areas not continuously (until the end of the curve) paralleled by skirts, but often by trousers.

 The "then", in this case, does not follow.

 I have shown how this is not so.  Edit: May God bless you!

I have already answered this question:

Quote:...we're discussing pants tailored to fit a woman's body. If the clothing that conforms to the vaguest outline of a woman's body is condemnable, then there would be no need for tailoring. If it must first be tailored to a woman's pelvic area, then it is in some way outlining the aspects of her physique that are sexually attractive to a male. I am not claiming to be sexually attracted to an XXXL pair of pants on a size-4 lady.

I see. I agree with that.

It's nice that men spend so much of their time thinking about women's clothing. It's such a relief to me as a woman that I don't have to exercise my frail powers of discernment related to the horrible burden of what to wear every day.
