Patient Modesty: Volume 8
From Fisheaters.com, a Catholic website:
"Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 19:26-27: "A man is known by his look, and a wise man, when thou meetest him, is known by his countenance. The attire of the body, and the laughter of the teeth, and the gait of the man, shew what he is."
I Timothy 2:9-10: "In like manner women also in decent apparel: adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly attire, But as it becometh women professing godliness, with good works."
Read the link. I thought that the picture, the biblical notations and the religious narrative at the Fisheaters website seems to be suggestive, in my opinion, of the view currently being discussed on these Patient Modesty threads: that physical, bodily modesty is considered less an issue for men than for women. I would be most interested to know how my visitors fit religious doctrines (not just Catholic but perhaps Muslim and others) into this discussion of patient modesty and differences in what is generally considered or practiced between genders. ..Maurice.
