Properly covered women symbolize respect. A woman in a bikini or a thong or one that is scantily dressed is hardly as respected as one that is dignified. Women learn to understand that unfortunately as it seems most men are indeed womanizers. Women need liberty to be treated equally and understand they are equal and not body parts for sex. Woman should be able to cover themselves properly, yes they should not be sex objects. Sex during marriage is ok.....but unwanted sexual stares, advances, public displays of partial or near complete nudity in front of strangers is nothing but propaganda to meet the mans desire to use and unfortunately abuse the womankind. This is what it is about sister. You are welcome to respond.
