Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Bert Farias Slut-Shames Women

still not asking for it

How many times have you scaled across social media and noticed profiles of supposed Christ-professing women dressed in revealing outfits?

You, young lady, and sadly, even some older, are causing your brother to stumble and sin. Men, unlike most women, are easily aroused by sight. Naive women need to know how any form of sensuality affects men. That is elementary. God has designed it that way. And unfortunately, most Christian men don’t show enough restraint and unconsciously look for the sensual.

Many of today’s “hottest” outfits are quite inappropriate. Pictures of you dressed in a sensual manner are seductive and leads to lust and sometimes illicit sex. If you’re not careful, the spirit and the lust of the world that glorifies sex and “sexy” will get hold of you. Sex is a billion-dollar business, and it’s mainly the male sexual appetite that drives it.

If you are a woman, you need to be distinctly aware of the seducing power you can wield over a man with your body. Look within. Why must you display your body in tight-fitting clothes? What’s really behind all the sensual selfies? Are you really so naive to think it’s just beauty or art?

Let the Word enlighten you.

Women are not even supposed to draw attention to themselves by wearing elaborate or expensive jewelry or clothes, much less display any measure of nudity. Now ladies, I’m not suggesting wearing plain and drab clothes, knotting your hair in a tight bun and not putting on any jewelry, but if the Word of God admonishes women toward cultivating this kind of modesty, is there any room at all for showing cleavage and wearing tight-fitting apparel?

    So it’s the usual message: men are animals who can’t be expected to control themselves.

    This guy’s erection is not my problem unless he tries to force it on me.

    I should know better, but modesty is one of my hot button topics and I engaged on social media recently with a woman from my fundy high school on this topic. Obviously we were on opposite sides of the issue. And obstinate as I am I can’t wait to post pics on social media from my latest race in which I wore a sports bra and shorts. I may not have 6 pack abs, but the race day was hot and that was most comfortable for me. If some guy got an erection instead of focusing on his race, not my problem.

    Dear Mr. Farias: Grow the hell up. If you can’t handle a glimpse–or even a long, slow look–at various parts of a woman’s anatomy without uncontrollable lust, you really need to stay home. Women are not responsible for the way you react. Your feelings are your problem, not theirs. Learn to ignore, or at least control them enough to be out and about in the world. Keep your hands, and your thoughts, to yourself, and mind your own business.

    You don’t have to be a conservative or a christian to act prudish or to slut shame. E.g., you couldn’t buy Playboy magazine in the soviet union because it was deemed western decadence. At this point I think the religious right is more sex positive than the extreme left.

      I wish you would be a little more specific, Chikirin. I don’t think you can get any more sex-negative than the religious right – no sex except within the confines of a heterosexual marriage. No masturbation, no anal sex, no oral sex. The religions right feels that what others do in the confines of their own bedrooms should be everyone’s business. The feel there should be no homosexual sex, nor marriage. And you think that’s sex-positive? Please explain how the extreme left is less sex-positive that this.
