Modesty

Modesty is Knowing when to Shut Up

At Mandesty, we feature men who are inmodest in dress. But as discussed in a previous post, immodest behavior can also be displayed by the way you carry yourself

So, today I will not write about clothing but about behavior. 

 

Every day is a new opportunity to tell women what I think

Men, I know it’s hard to break old habits. Otherwise MRA forums wouldn’t exist and those men would actually get lives. 

I know it’s especially hard because you’ve been told that everything you say is important and no one else matters. Just look at the King of Immodest Behavior, Donald Trump.     

Speaking of 45, I know you like to hear yourself talk, and like to be the center of attention. But did you know that you can grab people’s attention and also not be an insufferable walnut? Did you know that sometimes, you won’t get attention and that’s OK? Did you know that most toddlers can grasp this concept?  

So, start practicing some self-restraint and learn when to sit down, shut up and listen. 

They’re Red Hot and Immodest

Mandesty is a year old and we haven’t addressed one of the biggest threats to modesty in the last 30 years. 

Chad, Anthony, Flea and John

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, you know those those guys who are allergic to shirts and think the United States is only California. 

I remember the first time I encountered the funky monks of immodesty. It was the early 90’s and MTV still played music.

RHCP have had a few line up changes over the years but one thing reminds a constant; immodesty.

These days Will Chad is keeping his shirt on. Josh is a sweet modest cinnamon roll and hopefully he’ll be a wholesome influence on Flea and Anthony.

 

Vintage Immodesty: Naked Gunner

 

This young man displayed such heroism that Mandesty is willing to forgive his Classic Immodesty. From Rare Historical Photos:

This young crewman of a US Navy “Dumbo” PBY rescue mission has just jumped into the water of Rabaul Harbor to rescue a badly burned Marine pilot who was shot down while bombing the Japanese-held fortress of Rabaul. Since Japanese coastal defense guns were firing at the plane while it was in the water during take-off, this brave young man, after rescuing the pilot, manned his position as machine gunner without taking time to put on his clothes. A hero photographed right after he’d completed his heroic act. Naked.

“Hey, hon. Just risking your mortal soul while I risk grease burns. See how much I love you?”

Immodesty is dangerous to your soul but cooking topless is dangerous to your health. I guess it’s just as well. I suppose you should get used to burning flesh anyway. You’ll get a lot of that in Hell, mister.

Seriously, men. This is extremely unpractical.

Are all your clothes in the laundry, young man?

Men, I appreciate your effort into housework, but it is not enough. Put some clothes on and go make me a sandwich.
