The death of romance with the marketing of a “Viagra for Women”. Great find by Tea at Trianon:
While drenched in sensuality, our society is nevertheless experiencing the death of romance. Why do so many Americans need pills in order to do what should come naturally?
The op-ed piece says in part:
In the discreet white-collar realm, men and women are interchangeable, doing the same, mind-based work. Physicality is suppressed; voices are lowered and gestures curtailed in sanitized office space. Men must neuter themselves, while ambitious women postpone procreation. Androgyny is bewitching in art, but in real life it … Read the rest...read more

Modesty isn’t just about the clothing we wear, but our interior disposition as well. What is our intent? Why do we balk about dressing in a more dignified manner?
Here’s a portion of Part 1 of “Modesty–A Journey of the Heart” by Jennifer Allen:
The clothing you wear can be modest , appropriate, and tasteful, or it can be a temptation, embarrassing, uncomfortable, a distraction, grievous to the spirit, and offensive. Which way would you like to dress?
Modesty, or the lack of it, is a daily part of your life, though you may have not stopped to think about. … Read the rest...read more

She’s just doing it without trying…?
Miley Cyrus–an idol for many young girls–has a new album out, “Can’t Be Tamed”. Even though the secular media is saying she’s acting too sexual for her age, Miss Cyrus said in a recent interview:
“I’m not trying to be ‘slutty’. I’m not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys … What I’m trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress.”
Disney’s former “Hannah Montana” star says she’s always … Read the rest...read more

“The torment that so many young women know, bound hand and foot by love and motherhood, without having forgotten their former dreams.” ~Simone de Bevoir
Someday, I would like to get married to a man who I can follow to the ends of the earth as he follows full-heartedly after Christ.
Someday, I would like to become the mother of as many blessings as the Lord should ordain, raising them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Someday, I would like to be the keeper of a home that is a hub for … Read the rest...read more

We have had three great discussions on the blog in recent months regarding modesty, HERE and HERE and HERE. In my post some weeks ago I did not distinguish between men and women for the matter in question was dirty dancing which involves both. However, the conversation turned inexorably to women and girls, what they wear and how they should behave. I also note that 90% of the commentators were women. Last week Laura raised the question of modest beachwear and focused especially on the bikini. Here too the majority of the commentators were women and … Read the rest...read more
