in response to reader comment: Woman Modesty is imp in Christanity but they dont follow

Submitted by David John (United Kingdom), Aug 18, 2009 at 08:11

I'm sorry Muhammed to correct you Mohammed but nuns are allowed to show their hands and faces and many now wear shorter style dresses, you see they are moving albeit slowly along with the modern times and realise that modesty changes through generations and style. What was the modesty norm centuries ago is no longer relevant in modern times. But is still modest.

I remember my sisters angonising over the length of their skirts at the beginning of the 60s they were worrried it was too risque the have the hemline at the knee, soon after wards the hemline of other girls was 4 inches above the knee and they felt silly that they had worried so much. Swim wear is for the wearer and if it covers the parts that are not acceptable ie the genitalia then it can be deemed modest. If your sense of modesty is offended then you dont wear such skimpy clothes and all is still well, if you are offended by other people wearing such clothes then you should have no right to demand they should not but instead go eleswhere where you shall not see it.
