As with all activities the media reports to be taking youth culture by storm, it is very possible your child has never heard of such a thing. Certainly, as with Miaow Miaow, they have probably not been invited to partake in a modesty club just yet. Partly because, while we do excel in false modesty here in the UK (no, we don't, we are rubbish at it), we don't tend to go in for school clubs over here. Also our weather doesn't lend itself to skimpy attire, so we can but applaud those girls who go out in mini skirts and crop tops.
If it’s too tight it’s not quite right.
It’s best to flirt in a knee length skirt.
Shoulders and busts are graciously covered.
Revealing lines are warning signs.
Clean and neat catches eyes on the street.
When I pass this test I'll be dressed for success!
There is also now a Modesty Club rap, in which Hatch's younger brother requests women and girls to respect themselves. Herein lies the problem I have with Modesty Club. It's worth noting that Hatch and her brother are still only teenagers. Upon starting his No Cussing club, Hatch's brother apparently received death threats. Swearing is a peculiar thing to defend to the death, if you really feel that way about swearing then I suggest you invest in a dictionary and give everyone a break.
The issue is not Hatch kids, speaking on Fox News Hatch mentioned she had noticed boys and girls laughing at her during 'Club Rush'. “I didn't really mind, I was just like, well they don't fully understand what it is.” It is hard, even as an adult, to do something you know will be unpopular. The issue is this take on modesty being a girl's responsibility and adults such as Parents Television Council approving this message of modesty being simply a question of covering up.
It is no coincidence that the least sexy thing in the world is a nudist beach.
My adult advice to the teenage members of Modesty club? I think Hatch could get a great discussion going with Consent club, while sticking to her own personal views. Or perhaps rather than a modesty awareness club a 'do you know your leggings are see-through in daylight?' club would do more good. Especially as meggings gain popularity... Think about it.
