Like every summer, more articles have been published by young women who think modesty is overrated, if not harmful, and that men should just get a grip. Seriously, it’s like “Let me go naked in public, but don’t question my judgment, and by all means don’t lust, creep!” I’ve heard the arguments, but I just don’t get it.
