I agree that they probably should be taken down.  My desensitization doesn't affect the eyes of others, especially younger lads.  I remember being 15 once.

Better safe than sorry.  My two cents.

It's very strange that in the "Dove Bar Tyranny" thread I'm being threatened with banishment while the poster of these pictures isn't. I'm not saying he should be banished or even threatened with the prospect, but I find it very strange that I am being so threatened and yet he - along with, by the way, the pack of wolves personally attacking me in that thread - isn't. I'm very confused.

I am too.

For better or worse, Peter posted his pictures in good will.  I don't understand how you can't see the difference between that and threatening to purposefully be offensive to women because they don't have a place here.  We need to be charitable to others here, even if we disagree with them.

Again, we have a female moderator.  I don't know what you expected.

And after seeing many of PTR's celeb pics back in my Baskerville FE days its nice to know that this one (Carrie Underwood) is at least out of her tween-early teens.   ;)

Actually for most of todays stars she is dressed modestly in those pics.

True. Then again by today's standards Jack the Ripper was a humanitarian. Such is our fall into the abyss.

This is now a six page thread for a 2 day old post. 

I can count on one hand how many times this post has been reported for containing graphic/obscene/alluring photos in it:


But instead, you people chose to promote this thread's visibility by making it a six page thread.  You chose to ignore the very useful "Report to moderator" button on every post. 

If something is serious enough to merit the mod staff's attention, it should be reported.  It's really easy and convenient.  You press the button, you post why a post should be dealt with, and then it gets emailed to the mod staff, and then we deal with it.

But precisely because of its high visibility it's been on your radar screen all along, hasn't it?

I agree with you.  This clothing is acceptable to main stream culture.  And, even though we are heavily influenced by this culture, somehow we need to learn more godly standards.  This is extremely difficult, especially since so many of us have become desensitized.  It is like relearning to see.

I like the idea of taking down the pictures.  To me it symbolizes our rejection of society's standard of clothing and our resolve to develop one that is pleasing to God.

This is a good post Jayne.

You needn't sound so surprised.  :tongue:

Thanks.

Not surprised, just sincere.  ;)

Some of the posts here remind me of people that think it's OK to rape a woman or at least that the rape is excusable because she was dressed like that.

Not at all. We're simply not surprised that when a deer presents herself to a wolf pack as prey, she gets treated accordingly. More than ever, the world is populated by many wolves inflamed with lust at every moment. Thus we're not surprised when those who present themselves to the world as nickel strumpets are treated accordingly. We wish it didn't happen, but we're not surprised when it does.

I don't know how this slipped in here, but this is offensive.  First, how you say the bolded, and then two minutes later post the below is beyond me:
I highly doubt Carrie Underwood is at the top of most men's lust list

Nor is the corner penny hooker.


Second, there is no excuse for rape and/or sexual assault.  Good, decent Catholic men should ABHOR your notion.  We SHOULD be surprised and offended at sin in ALL cases.  We SHOULD fight against it.  It is repulsive and sick.  How you can lessen that is disgusting.

By your logic, then it has also been highly visible to men who could be tempted to sin, thus completely negating any benefit of me seeing it.

Again, I will say I have seen women and girls dressed like that on the beach...and even worse, at NO Churches. I am not saying it's right...but you can't make believe this dress is something outside of main stream culture.

Would you let a hypothetical 15-year-old son near a beach or a Novus Ordo church?   :tongue:
