Do women have to wear skirts to go to heaven?
A man is not a cross-dresser simply because he wears a skirt. A cross-dresser is someone who is trying to pass as a member of the opposite sex. Many men wear skirts simply… because of how comfortable they are. It has nothing to do with fetishes. And if you don't think someone could find a skirt to be more comfortable than pants, I suggest you search the internet and you will find thousands of women who feel they are. I am amazed and bothered at how lacking in empathy some women are for a man wanting to wear a kind of clothing that men were wearing in western countries just a few hundred years ago and which men wear today in countries all over the world. One would think that women would be more understanding given what they went through in order to have the right to wear pants, having to battle against laws that made it a crime, that forced them into psychiatric treatment. In the 60s we fought against a culture that tried hard to regiment people to fit into a narrow definition of how a person should be, that did not allow people to be unique and treasured for their uniqueness. Was it all for nothing? Are women so lacking in empathy (and I say women as clearly some of the answers below that are negative come from women) that they would shame men for simply wanting the same freedom that women have? I suppose such a woman is not worthy of a man who, finding he enjoys wearing skirts, has the guts to wear them despite the social stigma. While I do think men should be able to wear whatever clothing they want, I will be honest and say I don't find it very desirable or attractive. If a man I was with turned out to be a crossdresser, I'm not sure I could accept this. I would think it is a fetish greater than I am willing to gratify, or in extreme cases, gender confusion. If a stranger on the street was crossdressing, I wouldn't say or do anything. It isn't my business. But I wouldn't think positively about it. What defines feminine and masculine wardrobe has changed throughout history and it is based on common consensus. There is no clear definition of it, but just because men wore heels in the past does not mean we should make ourselves believe that they are "masculine." If you're trying to live among a modern society, wearing high heels (or a skirt) is going to have a variety of reactions, much of which will be negative, because it is widely regarded as feminine wardrobe in today's etiquette. Obviously, you can go against etiquette and wear what you please, but be advised that not everyone will be the nicest about it. I think that all men should be truthful enough as to wear whatever they want to wear. because of official stereotype, associational, perceived dress codes are that men need to wear skirts more often to get rid of the ideas from the Normality perceived ideas. because men also want to look beautiful and that bearing in mind men do have external genitalia because of this the thickest part of men's clothing is surrounding the genitalia thus sometimes making men feel injured and angry because of overheating and killing valuable sperm cell. That is why men need to wear skirts to allow for natural ventilation to the gonads. Basically, I find it quite refreshing thinking that other men and their partners do love each other no matter what and help each other in any way, weather shopping and listening to each other - also quite sexy! A very good book to read on this subject would be "The Sex Life of the Foot and Shoe" by William A. Rossi! The short answer for most people is that it is a fetish. Most people have some type of fetish, known or unknown. Just go to any truck stop and see how many men wear high heels (AKA Cowboy boots). You may be surprised. Consider this: If a man likes Women, that makes him Heterosexual (straight). If a man likes men, that makes him Homosexual (gay). If a man likes Women's shoe styles or other feminine things, it could be said that he has a heterosexual fetish. If a man likes men's shoe styles or other masculine things, it could be said that he has a Homosexual fetish! Please note! It is possible for Heterosexual men to have a Homosexual fetish and visa versa. If you think this may be a little deep and confusing, start doing some research on XX and XY Chromosomes. I think men should be able to wear skirts as they used to wear them not so long ago. I am not sure about high heels. I have never been a fan of high heels even for women. Plus there are not good for your feet and very uncomfortable. Skirts on the other end are very comfortable especially for men, since they keep the man cool between the legs and this is a good thing. I think that men should be able to wear what they want. I have worn skirts, high heels, nylon stockings (thigh highs), panties, bras, full length slips, and garter belts. These items feel good to me. I normally wear these items in the privacy of my own home, but I have worn them as I have travelled in various parts of the country. I agree that men should be able to wear what they want without any stigmas. It is a double standard that only women can wear what they want including men's clothes. The choice in clothes does not define who you are. Men wearing feminine attire does not make them gay or any less of a man. Perhaps they are 'metrosexual' or desiring to get in touch with their feminine side or perhaps just like the look and feel of the clothes. Not long ago, and in some places today like Scotland and the Arabic areas, men wear skirts (kilts) and dresses. Centuries ago, men use to wear the same togas and tunics that women did (AKA another name for a dress). In Ancient China and other oriental places as well as middle eastern places, men wore makeup and earrings. Just like women did. That did not define their sexuality nor made them any less of a man. In fact, keeping the testes cool by wearing skirts/dresses increases male fertility. It is a well known fact that tight fitting clothing or clothing that doesn't breathe well reduces male fertility. It's only in the Christian world and in places that are 'Americanized' that men no longer wear female attire. The stigma of a man 'looking like' a man (eg., macho, anti-feminine, etc) is a Christian concept more than any other idealism. Did you know that before the advent of modern thermal underwear, professional American football players used to wear pantyhose to help keep them warm? And it gave whomever wore that the advantage of both keeping warm and the ability to perform with less hindrance than the old thermal underwear used to give? Did that make them any less attractive or not masculine? Women STILL clamored after them. Just because a man wants to wear feminine attire in any form does not make him mentally ill. J. Edgar Hoover allegedly wore female attire. Here are more examples: In Greek mythology · Achilles · Athena In Norse myths and legends: · Thor · Odin · Hagbard · Frotho I · Hervor
There are some denominations of Christianity that require women to wear skirts or dresses, but a denomination is not the same thing as an entire religion. Islamic women usua…lly must wear a long robe that is skirt-like, as well as a scarf over their heads. Pentecostal/Apostolic women also wear long skirts. If you are wondering why Pentecostal women do this, check out Deuteronomy 22:5, which reads: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God. Pentecostals believe that pants are meant for men, and therefore women should not wear them.
Until the 1880's, women wore crotchless pantaloons underwear (weird but true). This made it easier for them to use the restroom whenever necessary. In the days before indoor p…lumbing, "chamber pots" were often used by ladies. Chamber pots are basically large containers with a wide opening which could be used instead of going to an outhouse or latrine. It would have been much easier for a hoop skirted woman to bend over a chamber pot than to try fitting into an outhouse, not to mention the chore of trying to sit down in an outhouse without getting dirty. Chamber pots were placed on the floor since it would have been difficult to lift the skirts high enough to keep them from getting soiled otherwise. Poor and working women who might have had cause to use outhouses (such as those living on homesteads) usually had to wear more practical working dresses without hoops anyway. Women wearing hoops rarely had the problem of trying to actually sit on a toilet since, by the time indoor plumbing became popular, styles had changed.
If you are a christian and yout read the bible, it says: the woman shall not wear that pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do… so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. ---- The short, easy, and correct answer is "because they want to." The verse cited above is Deuteronomy 22:5. It doesn't answer the question of why women wear skirts; it only suggests a reason why Christian men shouldn't wear skirts (kilts don't count, I guess) given that women do wear skirts. Deuteronomy is in the Old Testament. We have three legitimate options regarding the OT. 1: embrace it in its entirety (stoning, cutting off hands, etc). 2: embrace Christ in place of the OT (Romans 10:4, Galatians 3:24-25, and clearly in John 14:6). 3: rewrite the OT so that we can fully embrace it without burdening ourselves with the obviously unacceptable parts. Selectively reading the OT to support certain viewpoints (the Westboro Church's "God hates gays" rhetoric, for example) is not only morally bankrupt and ethically despicable, but it's also a slippery slope. Nobody who claims to be a child of God, and believes that God himself inspired the Bible, has the authority to say "This chapter/verse is key, and that one is not." So where is the line to be drawn, between what is required and what is not? If you believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible, and that Christ was the son of God, then you regard the OT as a history lesson but you don't let it run your life. You live and breathe the New Testament, because it's clear in the text of the Bible that the NT takes precedence over the OT, and that in fact the law of the OT does not bind us following the arrival of Christ. If you're holding people accountable for parts of the OT, but not all of it, then you're misreading your Bible. Stop worrying about rules, and just focus on Him... and getting the beam out of your own eye (Luke 6:42). Have a nice day.
Somewhere in the Bible it says that women should not wear men's clothes. I avoid denominations with such a superficial requirement.
Women wear short skirts to show off their skinny legs.
Yes, Poodle skirts were very popular then.
Women wear skirts to cover themselves from the waist downwards . Cheerleaders whose costumes include skirts have them for style, since the skirt doesn't really do anything …practical.
My wife's wears them is because she loves them and so do I, she really likes the attn she gets when she is out shopping or a girls night out she really loves to show her legs …off, and I also enjoy it she is always in heels and nylons
Skirts (long ones) are considered a way to dress modestly. They don't reveal a woman's legs, which are considered physically attractive to men. They also don't accentuate a …woman's figure, as trousers do.
No. Many conservative Adventists believe it is the right and proper thing to do for women to wear only skirts, however, it is not a requirement in the church. I would suspect …that probably 95% of women in the SDA church wear pants either regularly or on occasion.
To answer your question, 1) Baptist women, or just women in general don't have to wear skirts all the time because it is forced. It is a choice. 2) Not all baptist women wear …skirts only. Most women that wear skirts only that are baptist are fundamental baptist. Being skirts only is a choice, and a conviction. Me, my sisters and mother are all skirts, because the bible clearly says in Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV) - "The women shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man. Neither shall a man put on a women's garment: for all that do so are an abomination to God." I think God clearly states what women should, and should NOT wear. That is why some women wear skirts only. Because pants on women were always, until the 20th century (caused by rebellion) considered unthinkable and scandulous. Pants truly are a man's garment.
If you mean which denomonations then the amish, orthodox, some types of baptist, and other small denomonations I've found most of those. Trying to find just how close the rule…s are on women dress between religions.
Spandex Shorts. Usually black in colour, unless told otherwise by the coach. An example are the 3 inch - 7inch Under Armour Spandex Shorts.
yes she can as long as there are no stranger men in the house or those men who are not allowed to see her body & her hair, called in Arabic " gher elmharem".
First as a Pentecostal pastor, let me state that NOT all Pentecostal denominations holds to this teaching. Just like the Baptists, there are different denominations with-i…n the umbrella word of Pentecostals. For example : Assemblies of God, Church of God, Foursquare, Church of God of Prophecy, Church of God in Christ, Apostolic, Holiness, etc. Those who are Pentecostal and adhere to the idea also adhere to the idea of not cutting their hair and use 1 Corinthians 11:3-15 as their reasoning. However, there is a great debate about how those very few scriptures are to be interpreted. For a better understanding on the debate Google "1 Corin. 11:3-5 debate among Pentecostals". But there is a HUGE difference in beliefs when it comes to pants, make up, hair cutting between Pentecostals and Holiness Pentecostals. To get a better understanding between the two, I would HIGHLY suggest a Google search on "The differences between Pentecostals and Holiness Pentecostals" So I will end it with this, MOST Pentecostal denominations DO allow wearing of pants and not just dresses for women. Those who don't are a small portion of the Pentecostal group. Some that do NOT allow wearing of pants but only dresses, are the Holiness and Apostolic.
