This is outwith the normal posting schedule, but I’ve just go a flickr invite to add my photo to the ‘Is the Modest? flickr group (despite having contacted the guy specifically asking him not to invite me again a couple of years ago. He’s obviously forgotten). The group is meant to be for borderline outfits where you have to discuss whether the thing is modest or not.
I just don’t get it! AT ALL. What precicely about this outfit would not be modest, even borderline not? The tiny bit of bare calf? The fact that there’s a belt around my waist? Are bare arms unacceptable now? What is going on?
By the way, I would point out that dressing modestly isn’t an aim of mine, and if someone thinks that I’m ‘parading my body’ in any particular outfit (not this one, obviously) and the menfolk who see me get distracted from their work, then frankly that is their problem not mine. But see the term modest flung about everywhere and I just want to understand WHAT MODEST ACTUALLY MEANS.
Please, someone explain this to me.
P.s. By special request, here’s a link to an older post where I explain why I asked not to be invited to the group in the first place.
