have we desensitized ourselves to modesty over the centuries?
and what is the best way to look at the changes in the last 100 years?
the rising of dress hems, the shortening of sleeves, women and pants, shorts for both genders. bathing suits.
ii’m still confused as on what to do.
for me personally, dresses and skirts are usually about knee length or longer, shorts are slightly above the knee (maybe 2-3 inches at most) or longer, pants are not too tight, any shirt with or dress have shoulders mostly covered, or short sleeves or long sleeves, not much back revealing, neckline needs to be proper, bathing suit is only one piece. this is just for me personally. does anyone see problems with this? I still cn’at help but feel, I would have been told I was going to hell for immodesty, in a previous time since mostly wore floor length dresses for most of Christian history.
I guess I just have a hard time understanding how modestly is subjective. and how clothes can change from men’s clothes to women’s clothes or vice versa and not be considered cross-dressing. for example, women in pants would have been cross dressing before and men in skirts didn’t used to be cross dressing and now it pretty much would be.
why didn’t god prescribe a dress code? would make this easier (I’m partially joking)
