You really don’t realize what you have until it’s gone. If anyone reads this, if you love someone, TELL THEM. Who knows if they know. I wish I would have known at the time.

I also wanted to point out that there are quite a few Bible verses that condemn men who have made sexual advances against women who were “questionably” dressed, as you might put it. Judah and his daughter-in-law, Tamar, for example. You may remember that Tamar dressed as a prostitute in order to entice Judah, because Judah refused to give her his third son in marriage, as was her right in that day and age. When she was later found pregnant, Judah is ultimately the one accused of wrongdoing (and rightfully so!). How about David and Bathsheba? He saw her bathing on the roof of her house (a perfectly normal custom in those days) and desired her. Who is punished later for the crimes that followed? Technically it was David’s son, true, but the text is clear that the punishment is meant for David; David was the one who committed the wrong. Shall we have another one? Jesus says absolutely nothing about women dressing provocatively, but in Matthew 5 he tells men that if they lust after another woman they have committed adultery, and later insinuates that they should probably just tear out their eyes. That’s right – Jesus’ solution to the lust problem is that men should tear out their eyes if they can’t help themselves, not that women should cover up more.

Revealing one’s body to others was not an unusual thing in the ancient world. They had public baths and public latrines, neither of which were separated according to gender or afforded much privacy. If you got worked up over seeing someone naked, that was your problem, not theirs. I really don’t see why it should be so different today.
