Have you ever noticed that celebrities who do nude scenes or pose in dirty magazines or those obese women on Maury Povich who dress scantily usually say that the reason they allowed themselves to be seen like that is because they're not ashamed of their bodies....
Apparently, those who dress modestly are ashamed of their bodies.
I'm not ashamed of my body. Well.....I do have a few post-pregnancy pounds I'm not proud of, but I'm not ASHAMED of my body. My body doesn't bring me shame. I cover up because my body is special, unique and a temple. I cover up and don't let the world see my body because I respect my body. Sure it's just a shell, but it's the shell God gave me along with all the connotations that go with it. Out of respect for God, my husband and myself, I do not bare all.
It's respect, not shame that keeps me covered up.
And it's a shame so many people, women especially don't feel the same.
And for those readers who think I'm only saying this because I'm fat and ugly....ummm...I'm not. :) I have a nice figure and a pleasant face and am often described as cute. :)
