[re-post from former blog]

Yesterday I went to a meeting with several homeschooling families I know, and two I hadn’t met before.

Now, the families in my circle are all quite conservative, as is my family. The girls/ladies in my family/circle of friends wear skirts a lot; some, I think, wear them all the time. Yesterday I found it interesting that all but one of us were in pants. If we had been at another meeting, with another part of our circle, it’s likely that most, if not all, of us girls/ladies would have been wearing skirts.

It got me to thinking…why? If we don’t have a problem with wearing pants, then why, around certain groups of people, are we much more careful to wear a skirt? Is it respect? Is it fear of being judged?

I really don’t know. I can’t answer for anybody but myself, but…I’m not even 100% sure of my own reasonings.

Just something to think about.
