Wow! DRESS HOW YOU WANT TO BE ADDRESSED OR SEEN

I have been around a lot not outside my country though, i have been following local and international news and i have also watched so many movies both local & international box office busters.

First Impression they say matters a lot and the mind work so much with what it sees. I cant imagine a full grown woman leaving her apartment/house or home half nude or completely wearing see throw dresses without proper coverings.

My fellow community leaders, i will want to know what can be classified as indecent dressing. In my little knowledge, so many things are being worn in the name of fashion and trying to express ones self. We talk of freedom for women (girls), i beg to ask must we sacrifice modesty in dressing(covering ones body properly) on the alter of freedom?

Wearing transparent dresses, tops, blouses and trousers without inner wears can definitely not be called freedom or trendy. Modesty in dressing cannot be not definitely be called old fashioned. I really will want to know what others think. Our young girls and women appear nude in events and some people fear to approach them or correct them so that they will not be tagged "old fashioned" "busy bodies" or simply told to "mind your business" or told to "go to hell".

I think our society will be better if we look properly at what our mothers, children, relatives, friends and wards wear to events and around the house. I feel strongly that promiscuity and rape are part of how we dress and how our minds work. Our everyday dressing and actions also are part of our mind set or how our minds work.

I will still want to know your opinions on this for it is killing me a little each time my senses are abused and insulted by the way our women dress.
