What is expected out of mormon woman? Do they dress a certain way? Or they expected to do certain things? act a certain way ??
As far as I know, just not dress too exposingly.
Although in practice, though it's not said outright, they're supposed to make way for the men authority wise...
I'm one. I would know. And there's a lotta stuff I like about the church. But the way they try to shove stuff down your throat, the clergy forcing its views on you as the absolute, and the second-class status women take in it is wrong. But, you have to give up one thing for another, right?
But if you're planning to join, I would think about it long and hard. I didn't have that opportunity at 8 years old. And I've dealt with a lot of crap as a result.
I'm a Mormon woman and you dress modestly.
You just can't expose yourself or be too sexual. We believe in troditional family values, and a troditional marriage. We're are to love one another as well as loving our children. Then it all depends where you are. In my Stake which is the Midland Michigan Stake, you have your Mormons that are not so snooty but, you could say, uptight about certain issues.
Then around the Stake in the many different Wards, you have those who are more laid back. You have all kinds of people in the Church. Mormon women are no different then other religions are they? no.
I think it depends where you are, and how the community around you is. It's hard to generalize. (Are Catholic women the same all over the world? No)
Basically, Mormon woman are expected to dress and behave modestly. No specific dress code everywhere, but the idea is not to flaunt your sexuality. Mormons place a lot of emphasis on traditional family values, and dressing or acting provocatively is generally not accepted. - But that's also the case in many deeply religious communities, not only among Mormons.
In theory. Try living in the Franklin Stake in Tennessee. It's miserable. Have to deal with the mormon culture, the southern culture, and the new age culture at once, all which hate each other yet somehow all exist in the same place, and sometimes people
idolatry is the worship of anything other than God(to put it really simply) but we definitely dont worship a sacred garment... that would be weird.
I'm a Mormon women. its not bad at all :] we are expected to be kind and loving. but I think that every mormon is expected to do so. right?
If wearing a sacred garment is part of the religion, is not that idolatry?
