Two weeks ago, The Tomahawk carried a second letter from Jim Koenig in which he lasciviously draws readers attention to the girls volleyball players butts and crotches. And he does this, all the while artfully cloaking his fetish by using references to his bible and words of disapproval like shameful and immodest. Heres a quick response to what can only be called his specious reasoning.
Harlots wear short shorts, so the uniforms make the players look like harlots. Iraqs late Saddam Hussein and Syrias Bashar al-Assad wear business suits, so American preachers and presidents look like bloodthirsty Middle Eastern despots?
The uniform draws lustful eyes to the girls bodies. Well, apparently so, at least in the case of one mans lustful eyes. But those not cursed with lustful eyes are more likely paying attention to the volleyball game going on.
The Tomahawk photos would have been considered pornography years ago. Not to mention todays standard beachwear and swimming suits, eh Jim?. So, Parents Seeking to Escape Koenigs Disapproving Eye, you need to outfit your little harlot emulators with 1900s swimming suits. Or maybe burqas.
And what about those formfitting football uniforms that draw lustful eyes to young boys tushes.
If a girl walked down South Shady wearing these skimpy volleyball shorts, she would be stared at, whispered about, and called slang names. Of course, thats a reflection on the shorts and not on the starers, whisperers, and name callers. Right?
To conclude, Koenig tosses in the standard Johnson Countian reference to God to justify ones prejudices, obsessions, and hangups. Do as I say or youll answer to God.
Do only that which pleases God. What makes Jim so sure that God doesnt find short shorts very pleasing? After all, werent crotches and butts all His creation?
