It's time for class!

Okay, so I decided I would venture out of my comfort zone a bit today and whine a bit.  Here on my blog. Instead of just keeping my thoughts to myself.  Here goes... 

Do you ever feel like so many women these days in this old world we live in are losing every last bit of classiness by the day?

Do you ever look around and wonder why it is that these lovely women...on TV, movies, singing on the stage...what have you...feel the need to show off large portions of their bodies to every man in the country who happens to be watching?  And not only famous people, but as the weather gets warmer and I am minding my own business at my local supermarket, I have no choice but to view skin all the way up to these lovely girls' tiny little shorts, barely covering their bottoms.  And my hubby and boys don't have much choice either. 

Honestly.  Honestly, I really do not know why this has become the norm in our country. 

And I know I am really showing my old-fashionedness now, but why has it become the norm for lovely girls and women (and men too, but I am mostly just shocked by the girls,) to think nothing of cussing like drunken sailors in normal, everyday conversation?  So many things about the culture we live in amaze me, but this one just gets my goat for some reason.  Such vulgar, ugly words come spewing out of girls' mouths.  And it's all considered perfectly normal.  They spend so much time trying to make themselves beautiful on the outside, but let this trashy talk ruin it all when they speak.



Forgive me, but I just don't get it.

In case any of these ladies might be reading this post who may have gotten swept away by this crazy world we live in, and are thinking, "Hey, that's me..."


Could I ask you for a minute, do you really think that this way of dressing and acting is classy?  When you picture the kind of woman who would be your role model, do you picture someone who is baring half of what God's blessed her with for all to see and letting those 4-letter words rip? 


Let's bring some beauty and class back to our nation. What do you say? 

Thank you. 

My little venting session is over.  You may go back to what you were doing. 

Have a great day!

  1. You're not the only one... while I can't hear the swearing (cos I'm deaf), most often my heart gets very worried and sick when I see a lot of women's bodies being revealed, because I know how much struggle it gives to men and young men... I honestly think it is the duty and love of fathers to explain to their daughters not to dress in certain ways and explain their weaknesses, and most importantly, share Proverbs 1 to 3 as it shows how God feels. Hopefully that would speak to their hearts to dress in a way that pleases Him.

  2. Amen, Friend! And you are not being old fashioned...just classy. I guess it's up to each one of us to teach our children to be beautiful on the inside first. It's a tough fight against society because we're not the norm. But then again, I don't want to be the norm. I want to be different...then maybe people will see Jesus!

  3. AMEN!!! And Angie is right, you aren't old fashioned...just classy and GODLY.

    And I am getting just old and bold enough to confront women about this...face to face...at church! (How sad is that?)

    Actually, I've never confronted anyone. Yet.

    Thanks for a TRUTHFUL (NOT whiney) post!

    Now girls everywhere, put away your cleavage, for goodness sake!!

  4. I think it is all very upsetting. I even watch mostly old reruns on TV, because most of what is on is plain old fashion trash.
