Bra Color....

Recently, women were posting single words post of colors...the colors of their bras to be exact. I was guilty of passing along the email privately to a few friends as I do with all forwards, however, I did not post my bra color. Why? BECAUSE THAT IS PRIVATE INFORMATION THAT SHOULD NOT BE TOLD WHERE EVERYONE AND ANYONE CAN SEE IT.

What's even more shocking some who were doing it? Girls, there's only 1 word to say that would be describe what you should have done... HUSH! Shame on we apostolics who did this and those who passed it on. Husbands, fathers, & ministers (male & female) ...There should have been some "talkin' to" going on. My husband would have died if I posted my bra color for everyone to see. My dad would have died of shame for me be such an exhibitionist. (exhibitionist - someone who deliberately behaves in such a way as to attract attention).

Let' REALLY think about this... Since everyone now knows the color of your undergarments... some even posted size and material (ie lace)... Men who you don't know very well can imagine you in your bra. Now ladies, men are VERY visual, you have given them the power to imagine you in your bra. How many people actually know who is on the sex offender list in their area? (I do and I look in my hometown too)

Now don't give me this "It was for breast cancer awareness"... This is the blame game...passing the blame off to something else. There is more that can be done for breast cancer awareness than exposing the color of your undergarments. Why not go ask 10 people for $10 for you to walk 2 miles while wearing all pink? That's $100 that can support breast cancer research. Ladies, if you have to wear a bra then more than likely you know about breast cancer and the health precautions we must take. Your doctor SHOULD be telling you that once a year at your annual exams.

The Bible tells us to be Holy, Separate, Discreet, Chaste, Modest, Pure, (Matt or Sister Cochran...what am I leaving out?) {quick side note: Sister Cochran Publicly condemned this - Good Job & Matt expressed his though on it at home in which it was very negative}

Here are the definitions of these words:

By exposing our bra colors we have violated the Word of God and the example that we set as a Holy People.

One could even go as far as to say that those who have posted their bra color could have caused a man or young man to faulter in thought and make the man lust after them...thus creating a mindset for adultery (see Matthew 5:27-30). This is probably a rare case, but there are men out there who are obsessed with certain women and these are the fanatics who go into stalking, OCD, and even murder (the "If I can't have her, no one can"). Yes this is extreme, but shouldn't we take precautions to prevent the extreme.

Susan B Komen Foundation, even said this was a great way to raise breast cancer awareness. NOT EVEN. Ladies it would be better for us to pick a day and wear all pink that day than to have a tell all about our underwear. Shame on Susan B Komen Foundation. I would even say wearing a t-shirt with "Save the Tataas" is better than telling your bra color.

Well, I'm sure someone will get offended or say I'm too old fashioned. Or my favorite one - "Well Bridgette you used to be a feminist and ------- and you did this stuff too". Well people grow, mature, and realize that just because everyone else is doing it doesn't mean it's right. Remember people can change in one prayer meeting with the help of God Almighty. (Last side note: In a private group of ladies talking about our bras and such is a point, we must watch ourselves. Lingerie parties are ok, in my opinion, as long as the attendants are married and such is kept appropriate and decent.)
