Pressured to cover up

When the weather warms up, the clothing at church gets skimpier. Pop stars that visit Muslim-majority Malaysia are facing growing pressure to keep skimpy outfits and steamy dance moves off the stage during their concerts. Malaysia’s government guidelines for public performances require a female artist to cover up from the top of her chest to her knees, including her shoulders.
Modesty is a natural tendency to guard what is most personal and demands a delicate education. Modesty is not the result of social conditioning we do not have to be liberated from it. By teaching our children not to be dishonest we are not in any way restricting their freedom or traumatizing them. We are helping them to learn right from wrong. In the same way a child needs to be educated in modesty."Why can't the Church at least try to reclaim modesty as a virtue? I came across an article by Barbara Kay; she expressed exactly how I feel about the issue.
