7 1,206
Today we  will be looking in the Topic “INDECENT DRESSING”, the Causes and Effects.


Indecent Dressing.

Indecent dressing is said to be deliberate exposure of ones body to the public or dressing improperly.

The increasing rate at which Nigerian student now dress improperly is alarming and need to be addressed urgently, as this is against the principles of the society. Young people must know that indecent dressing do not improve ones beauty; rather,  it dents ones image and its also a show of rebellion but these has become a dress pattern that is common among students of higher institutions of learning especially the female students.

There is a popular saying ‘’Dress the way you want to be addressed,’’ the way one dresses determines the way he or she will be addressed. If a person dresses properly and decently, he or she will definitely attract respect and the person’s dignity will be protected, but when one is indecently dressed, he or she will attract disrespect, harassment, scandals and even rape which most indecent dressers experience.

Many youth are exposed to western cultures and their mode of dressing which they observe on television or social media where they see celebrities dress indecently and they try to emulate them. Most celebrities, while on stage, wear all sorts of clothes like pants, miniskirts, bumper shorts, tight trousers and some even wear their trousers on their waist, a style now referred to as sagging. The youth tend to dress this way in order to be like the celebrities they see on television, thereby ignoring the value of Africans with respect to the way one should dress in order to be addressed with respect and value, all in the name of fashion

    Wow,you nailed it with this post. Am so much against the way some of our ladies dress these days. These are people who would become mothers what will they tell their daughters wen the time comes and their daughters also start dressing in the same manner they did exposing their body parts that is meant for the eyes of their wedded husband
