Blonde Ambition Leads to Blonde Immodesty

Alexander Skarsgård is making headlines for appearing pantless at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. It is no surprise that MTV  would allow this stunt since at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards Zac Efron stripped his shirt off after accepting an award for “Best Shirtless Performance”.

Was leaving Sweden worth the sins of Hollywood, Alex?

I’ve told Adam Levine and Ricky Martin to rely on their talents and not their bodies. But what can Alexander do? Alexander Skarsgård has made his living off immodesty. I know because I’ve watched all 7 seasons of True Blood several times (for Mandesty research purposes, of course). That show also features fellow immodest man Joe Manganiello.

Put a shirt on! What would wife Sofia Vergara say?!

 

 

Season 6 Finale of TB. Shameful! Reading is best enjoyed fully clothed.

Alexander will also star in Tarzan.

It is a real shame that men feel this is the right way to fame. This isn’t cute, Alex. Show us you’re more than just a piece of meat. How do you say immodest in Swedish?

We’ve discussed tattoos and body hair before. What we haven’t discussed is how posing can lead to immodest thoughts.

These men think they’re being clever with a well placed hand, or slightly turned hip. I still know what you’re hiding!

You know how horror movies are best when they don’t show a lot of gore because what you imagine is far scarier than what they can show you? Same basic principle. My mind is reeling from all the thoughts I’ve had looking at these.

Mandesty: What is it & Style Tips

Simply put Mandesty is modesty for men.

But WHAT is modesty? Well, the dictionary defines it as,

mod·es·ty
ˈmädəstē/
noun
the quality or state of being unassuming or moderate in the estimation of one’s abilities.
“with typical modesty he insisted on sharing the credit with others”
synonyms: self-effacement, humility, unpretentiousness;

the quality of being relatively moderate, limited, or small in amount, rate, or level.
“the modesty of his political aspirations”

synonyms: limited scope, moderation
“the modesty of his aspirations”
behavior, manner, or appearance intended to avoid impropriety or indecency.

plural noun: modesties
“modesty forbade her to undress in front of so many people”

synonyms: unpretentiousness, simplicity, plainness
“the modesty of his home”

We’ve all seen modest dress guides for women. We’ve all shared a meme rightfully shaming a starlet for immodest dress. So, when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, making sure my friends were part of the 3% who shared that meme about Jesus, I came across many posts showing half-naked men. It occurred to me that we aren’t teaching our boys modesty. So, I took up the challenge. I also share some quick ways to ensure you’re modest in dress, young men!

Men, you don’t want to cause lustful thoughts in women! In order to avoid that refrain from the following:

Tight or see-through tops are a big no-no. Your sacred nipples are for your wife’s eyes only.
Avoid showing your shoulders and back. It is well-known that women cannot control themselves at the sight of bare shoulders. It is on you to not cause impure thoughts in others.
Long or three-quarter sleeves are ideal.
Shorts should not be above the knee. The short shown below are an appropriate example of modest dress:

Bonus: All those extra pockets will come in handy for your pocket bibles!

Make sure the pants are loose enough as to not accentuate your naughty lumps.

What you wear is not only an expression of yourself but it also sends a message to others. Think: How do you want others to see you? Do want the future mother of your children to think of you as easy?
How would feel if your son dressed immodestly?
Fathers, it is up to you!

Finally, aside from these style tips, I advise you to keep your body hair to a minimum. That is, you should only have hair on your head and brows. Excess body hair is unsightly and unhygienic. Avoid tattoos and piercings. Your body is a precious temple!

And the best style tip of all: SMILE! You never know when you might run into The One. You don’t want her thinking you have a full range of human emotions, now do you?!

Oh and as for the offending “friend” sharing those immodest pictures, I sent them a strongly worded PM and then I reported them to Facebook. Nothing happened and then I realized why! Mark himself has fallen for the depravity of the world! I pray he may learn of modesty.

Modesty: Then and Now

See this? What message are you sending to kids? Think of your grandchildren over there in 2066 and how they’ll feel knowing that granddad was a slut.

I can look at pictures of my grandpa and know he was a self respecting man who kept his privates private. The man was such a paragon of virtue he showered with his clothes on so he wouldn’t offend Jesus with his junk.

Also, shave! You don’t see black and white grandad looking like a bear grylls reject.

Ricky Martin, as I told Adam Levine in a previous post, you should let your talent speak for itself.
Ok, so you’re at home and not on stage.That isn’t an excuse for immodesty.
At Mandesty, we’ve addressed tattoos before. They’re unsightly.
I have a question for you Ricky, what type of example are you setting for your boy children?

Also, HOW THE HELL DID YOU TAKE A SELFIE WITH YOUR FEET? Those talented feet should be put to good use, not this.
