Please don't get mad at me, I am suddenly obsessed with find parodies about modesty! Here's another one. It's a mix of a bunch of different songs with changed lyrics!

In this day and age it can be increasingly difficult to be modest. Whether it is too hard to find modest clothing or there are simply too many people being immodest around you, the current culture makes it very simple to become immodest in one’s dress and actions. In a situation like this it is easy to have an “if you can’t beat them, join them” mentality. After all, it is the easy thing to do isn’t it? The answer is yes but you deserve more than easy.
Needless to say, you can tell a lot about a person by how they dress. For this reason alone, it is important to dress modestly. By dressing immodestly, you could run the risk of giving off the image that you are something, not someone, to be looked at. When you focus on the physical, such as how you look by dressing a certain way, you can become that focus. For example, someone dressing to entice someone of the opposite sex by dressing immodestly can be seen as “too easy.” Depending on who takes notice, this could mean one of two things. First, that person will want nothing to do with you because you appear to be “easy” and second, that person will want everything to do with you but for the wrong reasons.
In a way, dressing immodestly can be a sign that you don’t care about yourself enough to put effort into your appearance. It is much easier to buy clothing that is immodest because there is such an overabundance of such clothing in stores. In fact, depending on where you shop, it might be a chore to even find something halfway decent. For this reason, it shows a lot to someone who might be attracted to you for the right reasons if you are modestly dressed. Someone who is attracted to your whole being and not just your body will appreciate the effort you put in to keep a modest appearance.
Taking all this into account, one can see how dressing modestly can almost be considered an art form. The amount of time and effort put into finding modest clothing is well worth it. Not only for your own self-respect but so that others can know that you do respect yourself and are not “easy.”

How do you reply when someone complements you on something you did, like a performance? Many people reply with something like this, “Well thanks. But I’m not good at it.” So they deny their talents because they think that they’re being modest. But that is wrong. Do you sing? Do you write? Do you play some kind of a sport? Whatever talent you have is a gift from God. And God expects you to use that talent for the good of others. And because it’s a gift from God, you should also take pride in it, because it’s God’s gift to you. So it’s very special. So why do people refuse to accept complements when they do something great? They say, “Well I want to be modest. I don’t want to look too proud or arrogant.” But there is a way to accept complements without looking arrogant.
All the gifts and talents that we have are from God, because he created us. Therefore, all our achievements and accomplishments happened because of our God-given abilities. This means that all credits go to God. So when someone says, “Wow! You did awesome on the talent show! I really loved your performance!” You should reply with something like this, “Thanks be to God for giving me the gift of singing.” Because without the help of the Lord, we cannot do anything. In this way, you’ll still be modest, while giving the credits to God.
So I hope that this article was helpful for you, talented people. Continue to use your awesome talents for the good of others, and may the Lord bless you all!

According to a study at Princeton University headed by Susan Fiske, men who see women dressed in proactive clothing, such as the bikini, view these women as objects not people.
"Brain scans revealed that when men are shown pictures of scantily clad women, the region of the brain associated with tool use lights up.And in a 'shocking' finding, Susan Fiske, ( a psychologist at Princeton University) noted, some of the men studied showed no activity in the part of the brain that usually responds when a person ponders another's intentions (or recognizing another person as a person or equal) The lack of activation in this social cognition area is really odd, because it hardly ever happens."
