Too often we get caught up in the "pants versus dress" argument which I think is just a distraction. I don't want this blog post to be about that!
In a culture where gender lines are grossly confused, and women have finally achieved the "freedom" to dress as they please, I think a fun look at "the power of feminine dress" is in order.
What if women realized that their real power lay in what God had already given them...their femininity? What if we considered it a privilege to be a woman and we weren't afraid to show it?
A woman in a skirt or dress looks feminine. There's something almost mystical about that. Skirts make men stop and think. "She's a lady, not just a female clone trying to act like a man, or imitating a man.
"Oh" some girls say, "pants are more practical".
Sure they are. . . but we lose something.
"But", some ladies will say. "My job requires body positions that skirts interfere with.
"Really? Pioneer women WALKED (not rode) alongside covered wagons going out west. And they wore skirts. They had identity as women (distinct from men)
Queen Elizabeth (the first) wore gowns....not pants. She was powerful.And if skirts make your job more difficult there's a feminine alternative: Long pants sewn with wide legs....in silky fabrics and soft colors....and almost as feminine as a skirt.
Of course, if you're a woman who only cares about the masculine value of "efficiency at all costs", if you don't cherish your feminine power,as a woman; not a clone of men.....then by all means, keep wearing those pant suits." -Fred Bear
