How amazing, Rhett- I just quoted Dr. Von Hildebrand seconds ago in a similar discussion elsewhere.  I think Dr. V is both "old school" and on target! :)

I see. I'll look into what JP has to say on this, you've piqued my interest...  thanks Katie.

I really appreciate the spirit of this discussion, Katie- you've certainly helped me re-examine some of my assumptions about why we teach what we do about personal comportment.  Can I comment on one more thing without being obnoxious?  You mentioned the young woman who dresses with less coverage in part to help men adjust to female flesh.  If this is truly part of her motivation, I applaud the sincerity of her intent. I know there are many people who do things with which I ardently disagree, who nevertheless have noble intent in doing them.  I do feel she will ultimately be disappointed in this aim; after all, if wearing less were going to help men adjust in this manner, surely we should have seen some improvement after sixty years of pretty unrestricted clothing norms in the wider culture?  I am interested in your thoughts.

I absolutely see the points you are making, and I see the value there.  I can't help but think that there is a risk in thinking of relationships in terms of power and control at all. If it is wrong to act in a certain way so as to control others, it may also be wrong to act in a certain way so as to not be controlled.  In other words, it is the viewing of relationships as a power struggle that is problematic.  Perhaps responding in such a way for such a reason gives the control freaks the victory- we have bought into the power hermaneutic.  Just a thought.
