My kids have been giving a hard time about being judgemental lately. Telling me that I am such a judgemental person. But, I beg to differ. I really am pretty open. Tattoos, long hair on guys, weird fashion statements....what ever. May not agree with having a tattoo of an eye on your bald head but if you can live with it, then so can I. Not to get political, but I even figure that it is not my right to judge whether it is right or wrong to be gay. I'll let God decide that. It is not for me to judge. The Bible says to love your neighbor. You can't do that if your condemning them to Hell from across the street. There is one thing that I know I am judgemental on. Girls that dress slutty. I just want to slap the girl's momma's or ask the adults "did you even look in the mirror??"
Okay, girls if you are walking around with a wedgie -- your shorts might be too tight. Seriously, it doesn't even look comfortable. Just last night there was a 15 year old with shorts like this. No, this is not her. I am not some weird stalker talking pictures of a little girls booty! Geez guys, give me a break!
Oh, and we live in the middle of it all: horror stories of people at Wal-Mart! I'd gladly see some one in the pj's compared to the lady yestereday. I went to Wal-Mart and while driving out of the parking lot there was a fairly large lady with skinny jeans, tight low cut shirt, and 4 or 5" red high heels. Yes, quite the combo there. As I am sitting in the van and asked my kids if they saw the lady with the red heels, they totally missed it. I know it's bad, but a part of me was a bit sad so we could talk about how bad she look. :D See, yes I am so judgemental on the slutty look and I admit it.
I know it's human nature to look at other's and size them up. Appearance is part of that. My oldest really doesn't get it. He wears clothes that don't match half the time and totally does not look at appearances. I'll say something about some one walking by and he seriously doesn't even notice. In a way, I am proud that I raised him like that. It shows me that besides the slutty look... I'm not really a judgemental person. Otherwise, Joey would be more judgemental than he is. (that's logical, right?)
If girls could just keep things a little more covered or sometimes looser, we could all get along. Shorts are not supposed to be the same size as your underwear. Having your boobs hang out of your shirt might be great at a nightclub,but I don't need to see that at Wal-Mart. Skinny jeans and 4" heels can really only be pulled off by Beyonce. And I know this sounds REALLY old fashioned, but here it goes: just because you have the body to pull off a bikini doesn't mean you really need to wear one. Yeah, the whole everyone has one, doesn't work for this Momma. Don't care. Not going to say that everyone who wears one looks slutty, but just saying my daughter isn't wearing one. You can look more attractive covering up a little bit then putting it all out there. I know that makes me sound really old, but little triangles covering up my baby girl is not going to work.
There it is. My judgemental self is out there now, warts and all. If your one of those Momma's that let your teenage daughter wear the triangles for a swimsuit or underwear for shorts, I apologize now for the thoughts that will go through my head this summer. Being a mom to a teenage girl is hard and we have to make tough decisions. In some ways, I guess I am more conservative than I thought. I know that there are times, my daughter does not agree with me, but I am hoping that in long run -- she will.
