Good afternoon, ladies, and welcome to the Young Lady’s Journal! I wrote an article early this year about femininity, and I now wish to clarify some things that seemed to be misunderstood.
Our bodies are temples of the Lord. If we don’t treat them as such (that is, dressing modestly, acting purely, etc.), how can we be respected by others at all? If we’re not respecting ourselves by protecting our temple from prying eyes, and walking with dignity, people will see we have no dignity or real self respect. And it’s human nature to treat those who don’t respect themselves with a lack of respect as well.
I’m going to explain something about our nature. We are, in our physical nature, animals. Therefore we have instinct just like animals. Of course, we have souls, and are given a higher place by God, but in physicality, we are no more than animals.
When a female animal is in heat, she sends out signals to all the male animals of her kind. They know she’s in heat, and she’s ready for breeding. They can’t help themselves. There’s no homosexuality with animals. It’s all very straightforward.
When a cat is in heat, she rubs all over everything, tail up in the air, just waiting for that Tom cat to come along and make all her dreams come true.
When a mare (female horse) is in heat, she’s constantly flipping her tail up and peeing all over the place, and clearly showing that she is also ready for what she was, believe it or not, designed for.
People are the same way. Men have reported that when their wives are ovulating (basically in heat), they’re more attracted to them in that way than they are normally. This is because she’s sending the signals to her husband, whether intentionally or not, that she’s ready to breed.
Since people don’t have the same ways of telling this about strangers (that is, smell or other signals female animals send to the males), when a man sees a woman dressed the way women dress today, they see that as telling him she’s in heat and ready to breed, whether she thinks that’s the signal she’s sending or not. She’s confusing men and appealing to their instinct without knowing it at all.
The trouble is, men don’t understand this instinct any more than women do.
Thus, we have a culture where men and women are constantly satisfying their natural desires in a partially natural way, despite the fact that as higher beings, we were made to satisfy this in a very different setting with a very different purpose in mind.
As humans, we were designed to satisfy our physical desires within matrimony, with our spouse and no one else. We were designed only for our spouse.
And to tie it all together, because our bodies were made for our spouses and our spouses alone, our spouses are the only ones who have the right to see our bodies.
If we’re not leaving enough to the imagination by wearing modest clothing, we’re not hiding our bodies from those who have no right to see it, and we are displeasing God.
Good afternoon, and I’ll see you all next time at The Young Lady’s Journal!
