Advice from Fathers to Sons: How to Look at Women

There is so much written today on modesty and how men should view women. Unfortunately much of that advice, while well intended, is simply wrong. But this article is probably one of the best I have read on the subject in a long, long time. An excerpt:

A lot of people will try and tell you that a woman should watch how she dresses so she doesn’t tempt you to look at her wrongly.  Here is what I will tell you.  It is a woman’s responsibility to dress herself in the morning.  It is your responsibility to look at her like a human being regardless of what she is wearing. 
The whole thing is worth reading. And if you are a dad who has a son, take the time to have the conversation that this article recommends. If we expect men to treat our daughters with respect then we need to do a better job of training our sons how to properly treat our daughters.
