Cleavage, fathers, hoochi mamas & 500ft water slides

Posted by Matt Lane on August 22nd, 2010 filed in Christian Living, family, Kids

I looked the word up:

“Hoochi mama: A girl or lady that dresses trashy and revealing her body to the utmost. Tight and skimpy clothing.”

Brayden and I spent 3 1/2 hours waiting in line for the Lyon St water slide on Saturday. And I have to say, there was more than one time where I wanted to cover his eyes. And mine. That might sound prudish but so be it. My eyes only need to see that much skin from my wife. Geesh.

Thankfully Brayden is only 8 and not fully aware of….um, hoochi mamas. I mean, I know he is aware of girls but he is mostly very innocent right now.

But honestly, are there any fathers or husbands who cheer  their wives or daughters on to reveal more cleavage and more of their back side? All fathers look forward to the day when their little princess wears so little clothing that guys care less about their brains but simple want to oogle their bodies. All fathers right?

Why is it that a high percentage of girls want to show skin as an act of rebellion? Are there no other fathers out there that cringe when there own kids wear things that are even borderline and are completely mortified if it goes beyond that? Are there no other fathers that get disgusted when pre-teen girls (not to mention all the other ages) wear string bikinis and just want to punch these girl’s fathers in the throat?

Okay so some girls know what they are doing and try to manipulate. I get it. But some have not been taught and that really ticks me off. And then there are others, who have been taught but think that its okay. Way to go, make your parents proud.

Fathers and guys of all ages, man up. If you think that your daughter/girlfriend/fiance/wife is sexy and it’s okay for her to show skin like she is some kind of trophy or that it is cute/beautiful/expressive/etc, you are a fool. Love them and tell them all to put some freakin clothes on. For the good of all of us.

This subject makes me sick to my stomach.

    Holly & Marcie – There are some things I would rather not have to talk about though…

    Couldn’t agree with you more!! Wish more men had that thought! Wish more men cared about the daughters they brought into the world. Wish more girls had more respect for themselves than to ‘display’ their bodies. As David has said….”If it’s not for sale, don’t advertise!” Wish girls knew that what they are advertising to get is not worth getting and to get something much better, they need to put some clothes ON! Keep it up brother……you have some cute ones coming up and it ain’t gonna be easy to fight off the ‘world’. God bless you!!

    With older girls and younger girls, the fight is on. I think we’re moving to Siberia soon.
