Halloween Costumes for Girls (and Women)
This cartoon is so right-on. It makes me sad. It grieves me. We must teach our girls that they are so much more precious and valuable than to be seen as cute sexual playthings. We must protect and educate our daughters that 'sexy' clothes (and bathing suits!) will get them attention, but the kind of attention that causes a man to not care about their dreams, hopes, likes and dislikes. These kind of clothes distract a man (or boy) from seeing them as a person made in God's image.
I often feel overwhelmed and discouraged when I think of the sexualization of our culture. But I have four sweet little girls who need to be taught about the great value of purity. I'm going to be looking for opportunity to speak the truth to them more. I'm going to try to model beautiful modesty better to them.
I'm going to start here, in my house.
