I like this part:

Meanwhile, men who stare at women are guilty of immodesty, regardless of what the woman is wearing. It’s true that she really should take into account the struggles and weaknesses of those around her, and try humbly to avoid being a stumbling block. But I think this “stumbling block” rationale sometimes falls flat because it seems as though men aren’t expected to take any initiative to avoid stumbling in the first place, block or no block. We are painted as helpless victims of our own passions; pathetic little boys who can’t be expected to avert our eyes and control our thoughts.

I like this young mans point of view. It seems to be a fresh spin on what we hear over and over.

Isn't it great? And I thought the whole tznius debate was only a Jewish thing, silly goose.

Of course you then have to remember what outfits the Catholics put their school girls into...

I never quite understood that male fantasy regarding a demure blouse and a kilt.
