I feel really terrible for both of these kids. Their dad wrote a book called "Raising a G Rated Kid in an X Rated World". I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he's an authoritarian douchebag who's doing his level best to raise one miniature version of himself, and one subserviant girl who will grow up to be an obedient wife to another version of himself.

All I can really hope for these kids is that they get enough distance to think through these ideas themselves eventually. If they willfully choose to be like this as adults... well, more power to them I guess. But I tend to think these households are not actually very happy ones.

GAT_00: Shostie: Okay. I'm game. What did she do?

This is going to be a little vague. I have no reason to believe either her or her fiancee read this site, but no reason to risk it.

There's an absurdly big Christmas store down here, and my decoration collection is pretty small. We were talking about decorating for Christmas (and I should note here this woman is Church of Christ and yes she's a good friend of mine) and I mentioned that I wanted to head over there later in the week and invited her along. That morning I get a text that basically says she can't go because it would be "disrespectful" to her fiance to be around another guy without apparently him around. I more or less said 'what in the fark are you talking about' and I got back that she wants to be some kind of perfect fiance and ever be alone with a guy in any situation.

Like I said, I swear this text exchange came from farking Victorian England. And I'm pissed off because I read between the lines that she's afraid I'd try something which I think is incredibly insulting. I don't particularly want to tell her off on those terms, but I can't think of how to possibly say tactfully that you're insane and I'm incredibly insulted.


This isn't unusual. Why are you posting it here like it is a mind-blowing situation? They are engaged to be married and she doesn't want to create waves in her relationship. In *MOST* cases going out 1-1 with another man has high potential to cause issues. You even said you haven't met the guy which means his imagination could run wild about who you are. Even outside of that, however, you are a guy and more than likely would hook up with this girl given the chance.

Why not propose that she bring her fiance along? It should be a non-issue if you don't have shady motives.

Also, this wasn't just hanging out -- going to a Christmas store is a very "couple-y" thing to do. Very high likelihood that clerks and bystanders think they are a couple when they are looking at bear-keepsake ornaments together.

We all know how crucial it is that clerks and bystanders approve of your activities.

GAT_00: So, anyone got any more Tales of Boring White People?


Yup. CSB:
I dated a loverly girl for almost 3 years, were were engaged for a while, and were looking for places to live together. But maturations went in different ways so the breakup was for the best. After we broke up I helped get her a job where I worked and all of the morbidly obese cave-hens freaked out about it. How could you be engaged? How can you still talk to him? Whose fault was it? You met his new girlfriend!?!?! He met your new boyfriend!?!!??!? Is up down and black white? I'm losing my mind!!!!

30 years later we're still friends and I talk to her about every month. Her husband is cool.
/CSB
To bring it back to modesty, the loverly girl was mostly modest, but when she wasn't it was poetry in Spanish. Immodesty is like gunfire: timing is what's important. Or sniperfire: stay hidden until you change a guy's life.

Lorelle: She said she views immodest dress as showing cleavage, showing one's midriff or one's shoulders. Immodesty also includes shorts, dresses, pants and skirts that are too short or tight

Temperatures are mostly in the 90s and low 100s in South Pasadena in September and sometimes part of October...I doubt that she'll convince most girls to stop wearing shorts and tank tops during the first few weeks of the school year.


There's a huge difference between wearing shorts and tank tops, and "I can see your uterus and areolas".

Good for this girl. I completely support her. Nakedness and such is for adults of consenting age, not underage jailbait. Parents shouldn't be letting their kids walk out of the house looking like they're selling themselves.

I can't even shop in most stores anymore, and I'm not a prude. Everything is see through or short enough to be a scarf. Moms shouldn't be buying this shiat for their kids. A blue v-neck and jeans never go out of style (it's basically what I live in day to day and I look great, though I am almost 30)

Luke 6:42 How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

People should be free to dress how they wish without some little hypocrite saying they are dressing like a slut. I don't see the other girls saying she's a whore for wearing lip gloss and a pearl necklace.

I'm sorry, but it's not ok to police what other people wear. You can dislike it. You can think it's trashy- and you can think it privately. But telling other women that they're dressed immodestly is slut-shaming and rude and it plays into some really ugly cultural ideas about women's bodies.

My neighbor's wife's niece is Very Religious, But he always points out to me how she has huge breasts.
I said to him, "If she lost enough weight to have a flat tummy, they wouldn't be so big. Plus she's saving herself for a born again man who wants lots of babies. She lives here, in Vermont, where that is unlikely to happen. So she's going to keep dressing conservative (Like a lesbian) until some horny coworkers invite her to a "Tupperware" party and she wins the door prize of a modest personal vibrator, which will remain, unboxed, in a closet for years until she had a wine cooler some lonely Valentine's night and discovers tentatively with one, then two fingers that her hymen has dissolved out of boredom in the shower. It will last about a week until it is destroyed. Then, she's going to do a hit-and-run on an adult store and buy two, heavy duty black beauties, and the sales girl will throw in a magic bullet, and we'll never see her again".

Makh: Does she not know where to find tee shirts and pants? While I feel that clothing should allow you to be functional in the given situation you will encounter. I don't think dressing a certain way means you are dressing like a hooker. Especially since guys are allowed to go in public shirtless without being considered hookers.


did you think before you typed that sentence or are you serious? i realize there are tons of idiot women who think that its appropriate for them and their daughters (regardless of how young, innocent and naive they are) to dress inappropriately and they defend it vehemently. they scream how men are scum and are all rapists in waiting. this, while they are dressing in clothing that is designed to tittilate, provoke and attract a specific stimuli response.

hookers / prostitutes dress in a fashion meant to attract mens attention - especially men who are seeking willing sex for money class women. " I don't think dressing a certain way means you are dressing like a hooker" is the most ignorant statement i've read in a while. simply incredible.

it's a sad thing that so many women are so stupid that they choose to play the 'it's my body i can dress as i damn well please' card and pretend they are anything more than stupid biatches. we don't live in a safe world, we all know that. those who choose to toddle about provocatively may very well provoke a response that is unwanted. because there are rapists walking about freely. there are mentally ill walking about in public. there are young people with raging hormones who may make a bad life decision as young people so often do. there are ex-convicts who can't wait to pull your little pussy into an alley, stuff it in your arse then slice your throat. to dangle your meat in front of wolves and pretend you are not asking to be bitten is the height of attention whore coont with an attitude and most probably a mental health problem - or at the very least they're guilty of using piss poor judgement.

if you honestly don't know that whores/hookers/prostitutes dress in certain styles you can use the internet to give yourself an education.

are you really so stupid that you do not know there is acceptable attire for wear in a business / office environment, and there is a completely different group of clothing a female may don when her intent is to allure and seduce her lover? are you really that stupid?

hey, i love teen jailbait as much as the next guy. you want to dress your sweet ass daughter in skin tight clothes and crotch hugging sweats that read JUICY across the ass well you go ahead. enjoy the fact that all sorts of people like staring at your little girl and would like to give that dog a bone. and enjoy that your little girl is dressed that way because you, her parent, bought and paid for those clothes. you could have purchased tasteful nice clothing but you choose to let a child who really doesn't know better and can't wait to show off her blossoming curves to make decisions you the adult should be making.

parents that let their little girls dress like trash are further proof that not everyone should be allowed to reproduce. you are failures and losers, and if you had any intelligence you would be ashamed of yourselves. keep dressing your little sluts-in-training like future pole dancers and biker girl trash, i like staring at their little asses and thinking the most perverted thoughts. it's Moms like you that make it all good for guys that will think it's a birthday present while raping and killing your little girl. morans.

Uniquely Common: I'm a fan of modest dressing and always have been (grew up atheist in a christian household) There is a difference between dressing modest and dressing matronly, the Duchess of Cambridge has been demonstrating this rather well (with a few exceptions.) How we dress is an advertisement to everyone that sees us, the question is what do you want to advertise?


The things is: "modest" and "immodest" are relative to the culture in which they exist. The Duchess of Cambridge, as an example, would be in some cultures a slut-whore-temptress and immediately stoned to death.

Seriously. If either of you would get "pissed off" because you spent time shopping with a friend, your relationship's gonna end badly.

"Christmas decorating shopping with another woman?" If anyone female that your SO goes shopping with is someone you'd even casually call "another woman," as opposed to "a friend of his" (who cares about gender in this scenario?), you may need help.

You don't get to choose his friends, and he doesn't get to choose yours. You either trust him or you don't.

If there's something weird about the friendship, have a conversation with your SO.

"I think she's got a thing for you."
"Really?"
"Yes! You don't see it?"
"Hadn't really given it any thought."
"Well, pay attention, because I think it's getting weird."
"OK, well, I'll tell you about our shopping trip when I get back."
"If it's even a little weird, I'm not sure I feel comfortable having her around. It's wigging me out, to be honest."
"Well, OK. I don't want to lose her as a friend, but I'll talk with you about it, and we'll come to a decision together."

But if it's "OMG, he went Christmas shopping with someone who has a vagina! Christmas shopping!!!" - well, then, you need your head shrunk.

I'm a fan of modest dressing and always have been (grew up atheist in a christian household) There is a difference between dressing modest and dressing matronly, the Duchess of Cambridge has been demonstrating this rather well (with a few exceptions.) How we dress is an advertisement to everyone that sees us, the question is what do you want to advertise?

flahorsegirl: Aqua*dope*, your saying your going out with family members. How happy would your wife be if you went out with female coworkers? This is of course if your not still living in your parents basement.


I DO go out with female work friends, females who are friends of my SO, and female relatives. If you are female, I might go out for a drink or lunch with you, but probably not for more than one. My SO also goes out with her friends. And my friends, because they're our friends.

And you also said something like "If I know it will make him mad I won't do it". Does that go for everything? What if he gets mad if you get a job, dry out the roast, wear pants instead of a dress, talk in church, objects when he sells your daughter (or farks her), eat shellfish or blow his drunk dad, or put that gottdamn synthetic oil crap in your new pickemuptruck?

Having said all that, your aquadope moniker for me, the parents' basement thing, and your general coont attitude makes me think you have no real ideas. You're just being a coont to be a coont, and you are generally not enjoyable. Pity must be fun.

Yeah, that had to be a troll. Sorry everybody for responding but I'm drinkin and my cuzzin is lookin good yall. heheheheh.

fusillade762: zenferret: flahorsegirl: Aqua*dope*, your saying your going out with family members. How happy would your wife be if you went out with female coworkers?

My wife wouldn't mind at all. But then, I'd never cheat on her, and she knows I'd never cheat on her.

I guess that's the part that totally eludes you. We're not all predisposed to sexing at every possible opportunity.

My ex used to hang out with her friend Jerry all the time and it never bothered me because I trusted her. And because I was making less money than her at the time I couldn't afford to go out as much as she wanted to.

Of course I found out later that she cheated on me with him.

Even then I'd probably behave the same way today.  Jealousy is about insecurity, not love.


It's often also a sign of a tendency to cheat.

My wife's ex-boyfriend was crazy-jealous. Guess who cheated on whom? Twice. That we know of.

When a person is strongly concerned about the other's fidelity, it's often because that person is projecting their own lack of self-control onto another.

costermonger: GAT_00: And I'm pissed off because I read between the lines that she's afraid I'd try something which I think is incredibly insulting.

I don't think that's an unreasonable response. A few years ago my wife caught flack from a coworker because she was met by a male friend for lunch. She was told it was 'inappropriate to be with another man unaccompanied' when she was engaged to me. She was so surprised by this confrontation that she couldn't really formulate an appropriate response beyond "I'm sorry, are you serious?"

I think I was more pissed off than she was. It's insulting to everyone involved.


I think I'd make it clear to that coworker and any others around how stupid that kind of attitude is. And I'd keep repeating it till they got embarrassed. The majority of my friends are males, and I made sure Lordfortuna knew that before we even met the first time (yeah yeah, online dating. Married two years, together for seven). I'm loyal, but I'm not giving up my friends because the SO says so.

She said she views immodest dress as showing cleavage,

OK, fair enough...

showing one's midriff

Meh, doesn't bother me, but some people seem to have issues with it, so whatever...

or one's shoulders.

Oh, FFS, this just got stupid. It's like living here in Utah, people around here are so repressed that you can hear their assholes squeaking hen they walk. I can't even walk around downtown without noise canceling headphones on, or my eye start to spin and my farking head starts to throb. Once again, someone takes an idea you might be able to respect and turns the farking knob that controls how far they take it all the way up to 11.

I mean seriously, "shoulders"? You have got to be kidding me. Hell, I can even respect the brother's "No Cussing Club", but this biatch just drifted into Quaker territory, if the Mormons get wind of this, they'll try to one up her, and my kids will have to attend school in a hazmat suit wrapped in .5 mil black opaque contractor's plastic, and only their eyes will be visible.

Maybe that's mostly true, but not always. I have female friends (and yes, I'd like to nail them) and she has male friend I think she might like to nail. But we don't. She's completely free to nail those guys and I'm free to nail those ladies, but that would probably dissolve our marriage (that's the thing about monogamy). That's about it. I don't have to watch her and she doesn't have to watch me to maintain monogamy. Plus, she comes home to me where we can watch old VCR tapes of Python, make Xmas cookies and stick tape on cats. Beat that!

zenferret: flahorsegirl: That wasn't the point, its having respect for your SO. If I know it's going to get him pissed I don't do it. How happy would I be if I found out he was going Christmas decorating shopping with another woman?

Sounds like you both have trust issues. Good luck with all of that.


No. I think that in reality it's pretty unlikely that a guy, unless they bat for the other team is seriously going to want to go Christmas shopping with a female friend. Without nookie after. Get real.

Lorelle: She said she views immodest dress as showing cleavage, showing one's midriff or one's shoulders. Immodesty also includes shorts, dresses, pants and skirts that are too short or tight

Temperatures are mostly in the 90s and low 100s in South Pasadena in September and sometimes part of October...I doubt that she'll convince most girls to stop wearing shorts and tank tops during the first few weeks of the school year.


Since when do teenaged girls make the weather a priority when getting dressed? If fleece overalls were trendy, they'd wear fleece overalls regardless of the temperature.

GAT_00: Shostie: Okay. I'm game. What did she do?

This is going to be a little vague. I have no reason to believe either her or her fiancee read this site, but no reason to risk it.

There's an absurdly big Christmas store down here, and my decoration collection is pretty small. We were talking about decorating for Christmas (and I should note here this woman is Church of Christ and yes she's a good friend of mine) and I mentioned that I wanted to head over there later in the week and invited her along. That morning I get a text that basically says she can't go because it would be "disrespectful" to her fiance to be around another guy without apparently him around. I more or less said 'what in the fark are you talking about' and I got back that she wants to be some kind of perfect fiance and ever be alone with a guy in any situation.

Like I said, I swear this text exchange came from farking Victorian England. And I'm pissed off because I read between the lines that she's afraid I'd try something which I think is incredibly insulting. I don't particularly want to tell her off on those terms, but I can't think of how to possibly say tactfully that you're insane and I'm incredibly insulted.

Don't be incredibly insulted, just laugh at her. Say "I wouldn't let you try anything, because I now know you can't help yourself without Bob (or whatever his name is). Just know that I understand your weakness and it won't come between us". Then she will say "No, I was worried about you!" And you say "Well, that's no problem! You're kind of disgusting. I can pick you up in about 10 minutes."

FTFA: "But Brent Hatch, Saige's father, said he was hesitant to let his daughter start the club after he saw what his son went through. When Saige's brother, McKay, started the No Cussing Club in 2009, it spurred thousands of hate messages.

During the death threats and the bomb threats and the packages and the calls and all the chaos, my daughter said to me when she was in the fifth grade that she wanted to start a modesty club," said Hatch, who co-authored "Raising a G-Rated Family in an X-Rated World," with his wife, Phelecia. "I laughed and said it's not going to happen, especially with what McKay's going through. 



Sounds like a bunch of coonts. I bet the wife takes up the arse, like her husband when the wife is away for Ladies' Etiquette Class.

Does she not know where to find tee shirts and pants? While I feel that clothing should allow you to be functional in the given situation you will encounter. I don't think dressing a certain way means you are dressing like a hooker. Especially since guys are allowed to go in public shirtless without being considered hookers.

"Saige?" Really?

GAT_00: That's not as bad as the straight Victorian level shiat one of my friends pulled on me earlier this week. I've been trying to find a way to diplomatically tell her that she's a damn fool and if she keeps acting like this she's going to hate herself and her husband in a few years. And she's nearly 10 years older than the girl in the link.


Okay. I'm game. What did she do?
