A couple weeks ago I blogged about modesty and models. Then this week a friend sent me a fascinating link to a modesty survey. I just went over to explore it and have to say I am FASCINATED.

Background on the unscientific survey: It is a product of Project Rebelution: a Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations. Here’s what the site says about it:
The Modesty Survey was not intended to serve as a scientific measurement of what the average man thinks about modesty. In the strictest sense, it isn't a survey, but a discussion between Christian guys and girls who care about modesty. Over 200 Christian girls submitted their questions. In less than twenty days, over 1,600 Christian guys (12 and up) responded. Close to 200,000 separate pieces of data were collected, including 25,000 text responses.

If you have pre-teen or teenage daughters, this survey could be an invaluable tool to talk about the effect her clothes choices have on the guys around her. If we don’t understand the impact of our clothing, then it’s impossible to consistently make good choices.

The site also has links to some interesting articles on modesty, a guy’s responsibility, and a girl’s responsibility.

The Rebelution website/blog is the minsitry of Alex and Brett Harris, the teenage sons of Greg Harris. If you grew up in the homeschooling movement, then you know who Greg is. Their older brother Josh has written several books including I Kissed Dating Good-bye.

All in all, this site is worth checking out. I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’ve visited it.
