Of course, after writing the lat post we come across a topic that needs some attention so we will make one more post before our break. The topic is found at the following link: http://www.christianpost.com/news/is-looking-at-womans-cleavage-sexual-harrassment-181662/
And the problem is not just found in reacting to how women dress or how women dress, both are the problem and when women do dress in a manner that exposes their bodies, they cannot really complain when others look at them in any undesirable manner. This is so when the attitude applied to the reactions are subjective, misguided and wrong.
One of the real problem s in this issue is the fact that terms like ‘sexual harassment’, ‘abuse’ and other provocative expressions are not clearly and objectively defined. When people get to apply their own subjective ideas to these terms then more problems arise causing a lot of pain, heartache and injustice to all involved.
We need to get to real definitions and not let anyone and everyone alter them to fit their pleasure. Part of this problem comes in when those in charge of litigation, judicial affairs and so on, allow for the subjective definitions to take precedence over the real objective meanings of the terms.People in charge need to be strong and brave and not give in to the will of individuals who cannot accept or apply those real definitions correctly.
We do not like the fact that Mr. O’Reilly and others have received in justice because some women cannot accept the fact that they need to dress modestly. We do not like the fact that people are fired first when other options are available that would bring true justice to the issue and solve the problem with fewer people being sent to the unemployment lines. Trying to please a group of people or defend an honor does not serve justice but personal objectives and that is wrong.
Dressing modestly in public is not just a woman’s issue. It is also the responsibility of the man to set the example and dress accordingly. The man should not be exposing boy parts best observed in private between a husband and his wife but since women are making this an issue and the victims are the men around them, then they need to realize that they have responsibility to learn the correct definitions of terms and correctly apply them to any given situation.
They also should take a look at how they are dressed and their motivation for dressing in that manner and see if they are not going too far. Then make the correct changes. Women, like men, are not to lead the other gender to sin. Women need to realize that they do NOT need to follow the worldly advice of looking sexy to get a man’s attention. They need to realize that if they want the attention of a man with quality then they need to dress a lot better and not attract the attention f a man who does not care about them and has less savory ideas in mind.
The Bible tells us to dress modestly, so that is the key. This does not mean, as one woman put in that article, putting on a burka. It does mean to cover up as one does not sin nor lead others to sin when the dress for work or play. Women who use the burka example are part of the problem as they are being unrealistic in their dress code demands and refuse to accept the correct definitions for the term ‘sexual harassment’ and want to apply their own ideas to the term.
These people want to rule others per se and do not want to humble themselves and accept the real definitions of specific terms. People have a hard time accepting justice especially when the terms of justice are not meeting their demands nor are as harsh as they would like.But then justice is not to please people or victims but has a different purpose in mind, one that brings order and repentance to society.As well as obeying God when people commit mistakes or crimes.
Women are not innocent in this issue and they must bear a lot of the responsibility when men do things they do not like. Sexual harassment is not always termination of employment worthy and believers need to do the hard work and make sure justice is applied to this issue even when women do not like how justice comes out.Making complaints is not to serve the purpose of getting revenge, something women do a lot and it is an attitude that needs to be erased for that is abusing the justice system for one’s personal vendetta. It is just as wrong as any crime.
Justice is fair and a two-way street and those accused need to have justice especially when they have done nothing wrong but look at a woman’s exposed body.
