Modesty glasses? I hope those things work better than the X-ray specs I ordered, as a kid from the back of a comic book . I cannot begin to describe the disappointment I felt when those things finally arrived!
On topic- seems kind of superfluous... if the idea is not to have lust in your heart - then simply blocking your field of visions is kind of a religious cheat.

It is beyond sickening to me to see this primitive ugly form of segration and fascism and inequality, a blast from thousands of years ago primitive crapola, creeping up everywhere, as if TPTB are insisting on recreating the past inequality and conditions.
I am sickened by it and hope every single woman of conscious dresses as she wants and gives them the middle finger salute.
I think they should all pledge to never marry any men who behave like this and stand in front of the legislators by the thousands and millions. Never never allow them to pass unlawful laws, that violate the Virtues and Common Law, which is not the biblical dress code virtues, but infinite inalienable rights, freedom, equality, and not to be harmed, no fasicsm allowed, and no theocracies. Those are the real Virtues, not to harm. Not to control. Not to act like thugs and controllling freaks.edit on 14-8-2012 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)

In Jewish customs and tradition, there is a word for modesty called tzniut. It means modesty, and involves taking proactive steps to prevent immodesty.
In our American culture, we have far to many young women walking around with bare shoulders, bare arms, and skimpy clothing. I see this all the time when I go out in public.
On Fox News last night, I commented to my wife that the woman attorney on the screen had her cleavage showing, and bare arms and bare shoulders. When they placed a headline at the bottom of the screen, she looked half-naked. It was so egregious and disgusting.
You have to commend these ultra-Orthodox Jews for trying to avoid immodest looks. It beats the alternative.
In Orthodox Judaism, men are expected to wear long pants, and long sleeve shirts according to modesty practices. Shorts are not acceptable among many Orthodox Jews. Women wear scarves, and must keep their arms and legs covered as well.
What is the purpose of modesty? To try to not draw attention to yourself, and to avoid people looking at you in a sinful manner.

The irony here is that it still won't stop men from walking into streetsign poles.
The whole idea behind these kinds of beliefs is that women are distracting from other, more 'valuable' pursuits, like being holy, study, e.t.c.
why it is imposed outside of temples and clergy is just beyond my ken.
If women want to wear skimpy clothing it is their choice. There is nothing wrong with it. Whatever you think is sinful is up to you, it is all perceptive.
See, this I take issue with. We are born naked. If you are religious, and believe in Adam and Eve, they were naked. There are many cultures were people were no, or very little body coverings.
You are obviously an older gentleman with a firm religious belief system in place, so im going to have some respect for your seniority. Unfortunately for your way of thinking the ideals you hold so dear are arcanic and around 100 years of of date. Women are free these days and just no longer require religious fundamentalists guidance or control constructs. Peace mate, have a good day!
Aw cookiemonster i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but God is dead atleast from an organised religious standpoint, he/she is simply no longer required in todays world. If this is not so then where is God, the dude cant even be bothered to turn up and fix the mess he/she created in the first place. Theres more chance of little Grey men turning up and annihilating us humans than some omnipotent deity coming to our aid. I not saying he dosent exist just that he/she dosent care anymore. It happened to the Angels and Nephilim, maybe he/she has found a new toy eh?
