This may sound odd, but one of the first things I noticed about my wife when we first met was her calves. That’s right, I was attracted to her calves. And the reason I’m bringing this up is because “Do bare calves cause men to stumble?” is one of the many questions raised in The Rebelution’s peer survey on modesty.
The Harris brothers began gathering answers to their online questionnaire this January and over 1,600 Christian guys responded. They include a disclaimer that’s it’s not scientific, but it’s not meant to be. What it is is an honest look at what young women do and wear that may prove to be stumbling blocks for young men, all men.
The survey covers swimsuits, skirts, jeans and a woman’s posture and movement, and much more. You can filter the results based on age and schooling — whether public, private or home schooled. And there’s a petition guys can sign affirming the biblical truths on modesty “to my sisters in Christ.”
It’s definitely worth a look. I’m not sure I’ve seen a more comprehensive and revealing look into the minds of men on the issue of female modesty.
Turns out, bare calves are not a stumbling block for guys.
