I saw this same video www.youtube.com on a FB link last night. It is excellent, and ties in a Princeton research study (evidence-based- I like that) about what happens to the male brain when men view scantily dressed women. Using MRIs, they saw which part of the male brain "lit up" and which part "shut down" when exposed to women in different clothing. I know that it takes almost 10 minutes of your life to watch this video, and I do recommend it! We need this kind of information to share with others so that we don't sound overly emotional, overly "religious," pious, "uptight," or whatever you want to call it.
Another thought that I had about watching this video and listening to it was how many little girls have dressed in yellow bikinis and danced in recitals, and how many times has this song been played, sung and listened to over the years? I never knew about the "bathing huts" in the early 1900's (and don't want to experience one, either!) and the history behind the bikini.
Many years ago I had a DRE speak about the effects of music and how it was used to spread heresies. Catchy tunes with heretical lyrics would be made up, and then be sung in the port bars. The sailors on shore leave would learn them, and take them to their next port of call, spreading them as they went. Eventually these tunes made it into the home, and mothers sang them with their children. By the time they had disseminated the history or truth behind them was lost. With the advent of recordings being available to the masses (radio, records, tapes, CDs and now digital media) these tunes permeate quickly, like the "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny...."
Before I ramble on and on.... thanks Monica for sharing, and for anyone who took the time to read my post, please watch the video- it's worth the 9-1/2 minutes.
