Little Princess

As you know, I grew up fairly gendered. I wore skirts a huge chunk of my childhood, was taught courtship, and for the longest time, didn’t plan on going to college. Interestingly, despite all that, we skipped the whole princess thing.  In fact, one reason I don’t get the whole anti-princess parenting   movement is because …

I recent post by Aletha really stood out to me. This is where she talks about where the pain of modesty began. I started developing breasts when I was 8.  The first time I ever thought about them was in kid’s Sunday School.  I had been wearing a dress that I loved. It had flowers, …

I’ve written that- and I think we all know that – we wore modest clothing primarily to protect men…their lusts, their hearts, their bodies. But in my house growing up purity was about the men too, not just so greedy men receive a virgin but also so the mens’ hearts stay protected. My mom said …

I’m pretty sure most 8-year-olds know more about women’s clothing to me. I hate clothes shopping. It’s painfully difficult for me. One would think it’s as simple as trying on clothes, fitting …

Growing up, I was taught that I had to dress modestly because men will “lust” if they see me in short shorts or a mini-skirt. I was taught that I could cause men to stumble, and women are in part to blame for this problem. We would frequently scoff at other girls on the streets. …

164/365 - Duplexes of the Dead

Helga Weber / Foter / CC BY-ND Ladies Against Feminism brought me to the attention of this Catholic post that argues that modesty also affects the relationship women have with other women. Here’s what they say. It’s a fact of human nature that women are judged by their physical appearances more than men are, and …

<–my elementary swimsuit My elementary years I wore bathing suits that covered my legs and arms. In middle school I wore blue skirts and white shirts to a homeschool convention with ATI. Several years later, in early high school, I started wearing skirts most of the time. Today I live and work in a very …
