When you try to cover yourself, so as not to be ogled at, where do you draw the line? Shall we all wear burkas? What’s to stop a man from lusting at the young girl’s beautiful face? What’s to stop a man from fantasizing about what’s underneath the school girl’s knee-length skirt?
I don’t believe this problem will change with either the flaunting or hiding of our bodies, but with a concentration on more cerebral aspects of life. The superficial, vapid society that we’ve created is to blame for the encouragement of uncivilized behavior. Sporting events, sexual exploitation of women in media and worship of the dollar have fed our egos, but not our souls. We live more like wild animals, than like evolved spiritual beings.
