What do you think about the value and benefit of keeping your thoughts clear of lust, lewd images, and fantasies? Is that a value left tot he religious? Should it be?
I read a note on facebook that struck me as rather amusing, yet at the same time naive and perhaps a bit misguided. Do you see it that way? As back-story, there is a facebook status meme floating around where you post the color of your bra in order to raise awareness about breast cancer. I think it’s silly, since we all know about breast cancer already and this won’t do anything for those with it, nor the research to end it. However, in the long run I don’t give a damn what your status message is. Apparently, though, some men don’t like it. Here’s one response:
Imagine yourself in front of a room full of every single guy you are friends with on Facebook. Imagine yourself telling each one of them what your bra color is.
Does that weird you out? Yes? Then don’t post the color of your bra in your status.
Not weirded out yet? Then consider that some of the guys reading your status are glad you posted that because it helps them imagine your boobs better. Some of them are grateful to you because you have made it easier to fantasize about you.
Are you ok with that? Then realize some of your guy friends struggle with purity & DON’T WANT to know your bra color. Even if you are comfortable announcing facts about your bra to every single guy in front of you, don’t post your bra color status in consideration of those guys whose lives will be made harder because of it.
Think I am taking a joke & making a big moral issue out of it? Sorry you feel that way. You are entitled to your opinion. I am not the only one that feels this way though. Think it is all just for fun? Ok – aren’t there other ways to have fun that don’t cause your guy friends to think of your boobs?

Do you laugh and mock or do you admire him for his desire for a healthy thought life? What if this man was Atheist–would that make a difference to your impression?
