I feel that I should clarify myself -
I'm not aiming to label their looks towards me as lustful. I do not wish to go into much detail because I don't want to sound full of myself by any means. :confused:
But for example someone posted a picture on Facebook that I was in. People (boys) commented on that picture in very....blunt...ways that made references to my body that were not pure at all!
There's a HUGE difference in a boy saying,
"You look really pretty today."
"Too bad you're a hardcore Christian because otherwise I'd love to ........... to/with you"
^ Fill in various statements that are definitly not chaste in any way there.
I've heard the comments and because of that there's definitely a huge difference in the way that they look, you know? I'm not trying to assume anything but regardless of that, there are still comments that are being said that are just as bad if not worse than the looks and thoughts.
And Cathy2, I always wear (closed toe) tennis-like shoes, if that makes sense? Never heels or flats.
I also feel like I should clarify that I don't dress boring by any means! I dress well and even get compliments on my modest, yet still stylish way of dress! I'm not sloppy in what I wear but nor do I spend large chunks of time thinking about it. I dress appropriatly and crisply and that's about it.
Ugh! :mad: I am so sorry you're having to experience this disgusting behavior on the part of your classmates. I don't know the rules where you go to school, but if they're saying those kinds of things about you on facebook you may be able to get your school to intervene. I believe it is their responsibility to protect their students from sexual harassment by other students. If not, perhaps your parents could help? Comments like that are simply not okay, and shouldn't be without consequences.
As far as dress goes, though, it probably doesn't matter at all to those guys what you dress like. As others have said, you are doing your best not to invite those kinds of thoughts and comments, and that's really all you can do, except to pray for them.
Oh, and kudos to you for dressing both stylishly and modestly! It's really good for other people to see that you don't have to wear a shapeless jumper to adhere to Christian standards of modesty. :thumbsup:
