Indecent dressing is a social malady in the society today especially by the youths. This term simply means the deliberate exposure of one’s body to the public, towards whatever selfish end.
This practice does not conform to the norms and values of our society.
This practice is now so common in public places like churches and offices.
Indecent dressing is caused by common phrases which are the problems of our generation like:
“Only God can judge me, you can’t”; “Leave them alone”; “Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion”; “Mind your business”.
These shameless phrases have become so common in our society that one can’t condemn any wrong doings again because the rewards are usually malice, hatred and condemnation from ignorant people.
Indecent dressing is the major cause of the various assault and sexual harassments recorded in the society, overtime. In the name of fashion, some ladies dress half naked to functions with miniskirts, bumper shorts, armless and very revealing tops, etc.
Guys have been subject to arrests along with hooligans because of this ill.
Boys nowadays fix hairs, pierce ears making them look like hardened criminals, so one can’t really blame police for arresting them.
But it could be checked in our society. Parents should act as role models to their children, churches should promote the culture of decent dressing, dress codes should be introduced in places that need them, the mass media should do more to promote decency in dressing among youths, etc.
