Ladies and The Negaive Side of Indecent Dressing

Would a reasonable lady ever dress like this?

Indecent dressing simply means deliberate exposure of one’s body to the public. This practice is contrary to the acceptable norms and values of the society.

Moral decadence on the other is a reduction in the level of morality in the society. Do you observe that most (ladies) had gone haywire all in the name of the dressing?

The other day I screamed when I saw a girl whose parent barely fed well, dressed with half of her breast and buttocks outside.

The trouser she wore is such that half of her buttock was out, with beads and terrible make ups and I heard her mum telling her “to have a nice day.”

Some girls have been embarrassed and even abused because of their outrageous outfit.

Indecent dressing is the major cause of the various assault and sexual harassment recorded in the society, over time. As a result of civilization, Nigeria ladies dress half naked to occasions all in the name of fashion’ and this is contrary to the prestige placed on African women. For instance Nigeria ladies derive pleasure in wearing cloth such as mini skirt, bumper short, armless e.t.c.

As a lady you must be cautious of the kind of clothes you put on. Do you know your dress create impression about you either positively or negatively in the heart of people?

Your dress could show if you are responsible or irresponsible, serious minded or unserious. Dressing in a manner that parents, society and religion frown at is not civilization. The way you dress show whether you are respected or not.

Most ladies now walk on the street half naked, with tattered clothes all in the name of fashion. Also, some innocent guys have been arrested along with armed robbers just because of the way they dressed.

I see no reason why a child from a good home should relax or keep dreadlocks, piercing his ears all in the name of fashion. There is a saying that “you are addressed because of the way you dressed.”

Nowadays, different styles of dressing are in vogue – low west, hot bosom, sagging etc. All these have the society’s moral value to its lowest ebb.

In a nation that is endowed with varieties of culture and traditions, it is annoying seeing this culture and traditions going into extinction. Nigerians find it difficult to dress in their local attire as it is regarded as “old and archaic.”

Indecent dressing is an habit embraced by all ages in the society. It has been inculcated by both the young and the old.

It is common among celebrities, particularly among artistes. This set of people, while on stage will want to look unique and in the process turned themselves into lunatic.

They wear tattered jean with holes, tight fitting shirt, some even go to the extent of wearing ordinary pant while on stage. All this is the cause of juvenile delinquency. Most of the under age children engage in early sex as a result of what they watch on Television as well as what they saw among their older siblings.

Sadly, most ladies have been sexually abused because of their mode of dressing.

The question is: who do we blame for these social malady – the parents, the society or the peer groups?
