Okay, I am going to touch on a bit of a "hot button" issue (to some people)... MODESTY!
Based upon what I am seeing, skirts are getting more and more shorter... People are getting more and more comfortable showing skin...
My opinion, (not to get all religious about the situation or even biased...) I think that people are completely disregarding their own modesty and are disrespecting themselves in the process. I practice Judaism, and according to Halakha (Jewish moral principles and laws), Both men and women are not to show skin above the shin (area above the ankle but below the knee... I only wear slacks...), can not show any chest (I never go outside without a shirt), and can not show any skin above the elbow. I follow these rules. If I see a woman that is wearing revealing clothing (I consider shorts to be revealing...), I avert my attention away, and if approached, I MAINTAIN eye contact. Nevertheless, I believe that not having some inhibitions or a decent level of modesty is a form of disrespect to oneself.
I was wondering, what are your opinions of this matter...?
Please remain respectful here.

Dude. SO TRUE. I think its mainly girls though. They think guys will find them more attractive if they dress like sluts and whores. I don't know about anyone else on here, but I don't feel comfortable with my butt hanging out of my shorts or my chest falling out. I'm mormon, so I am raised to respect myself and it really bothers me when I go our and see what some people are wearing.3
