Modesty Is For Men Too and We Need to Talk About It

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

By Blake Oakey of Millennial Mormons

Modesty is an incredibly fascinating topic within Mormon culture. Discussions rage like wildfires across the internet and into our Relief Society and Sunday School lessons. This poignant idea of how to dress and act is deeply impressed into the minds of every young girl who enters the waters of baptism, and makes her way through Beehive, Mia Maid, and Laurel classes.

While modesty has always been a subject most discussed by the Young Women of the LDS Church, it rarely is heard of among the Young Men. The For the Strength of Youth pamphlet speaks directly to the youth of the Church about topics of importance like music, dating, integrity, sexual purity, and many others. Modesty is one of those topics that is generally flipped right past when the teacher’s quorum advisor plans a lesson. After all, modesty is for women, not men. Right?

As we have discussed in other posts, modesty isn’t always about covering one’s knees, chest, or shoulders. It’s a mindset of humility expressed through one’s dress, appearance, and actions. Modesty isn’t just for women, it’s for men as well.
