+3129 – This happened over 15 years ago, I was training as a classical ballerina and I also danced at the church and was part of the youth group.
Dancing at church was really different especially because of the clothes we were allowed to use, nothing to tight, nothing that would show too much skin, so instead of a bodysuit and tights I would use t-shirts and pants, but depending on the movement the t-shirts would come up and people could see my belly. So the youth leader decided that the girls from the dance group had to use a bodysuit under the t-shirt so the boys wouldn’t few the temptation, the whole thing was ridiculous.
One weekend some of the girls slept in my house and we came up with a plan. So on Sunday morning we talked to the youth leader, we explained that we understood that we had to cover our bodies especially because we felt the “temptation ” over the boys bodies, they were always with low pants, showing there underwear and stomachs… it was hard on us. So we asked that the same rules of modesty that were applied to us would be applied on the boys as well.
Because it was a joint effort, 15 girls had this talk, the leader had no way but to do as we asked, the boys were crazy mad with the new rules, especially because they had to buy belts to keep there pants in place.
I left that youth group a couple of months after that because they had a very strict cut out age, but the rule was in place for a couple of years after I left.
