Christian Fashionista Promotes Modesty, Gets Major Hate on Twitter

Ayesha Curry, wife of NBA MVP and all-star Steph Curry, has gained a following over the last few years for her fashion, cooking and Christian values. Many consider the couple as role models for a healthy family that has stayed grounded in their faith throughout their rise to fame.

 

Recently, after reading through a Style Weekly, Ayesha tweeted the following:

Ayesha’s remarks were met with criticism from Twitter users who believed she was “slut-shaming” some women for how they dress, and being anti-feminist.

As Christian women, we know that dressing modestly is not only for yourself and for your spouse/future spouse, but also for God. Project Inspired has always been all about modest fashion, and we are proud of Ayesha for speaking out and going against the grain.

Steph stood up for his wife and spoke about the controversy to Warriors’ sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, who wrote, “He was surprised ppl took offense to it. He thought Twitter was for expressing opinions. Steph Curry said all Ayesha did was express her style preference. It was not a judgment.”

Even after Ayesha was bombarded with criticism, she remained true to her statement and beliefs.

What do you think, PI Girls? Do you agree with Ayesha? Has anything you’ve ever said or written on social media turned into a much bigger issue than you expected?

    Ayesha was wrong in my opinion. She was not expressing her beliefs, she was implying her body is a product her husband “bought” with a ring and a marriage license and those other girls have no worth anymore because they have been “pre-owned” (seen). Modesty is great and all but just don’t expect a special promotion above the “sluts” you are shaming for keeping “the good stuff” away.

    I think it’s great she spoked out and I think what she said was true private parts are for your husband(if you’re a girl)or wife(if you’re a guy) should be saved for them

    It’s really interesting how the one commenter thought Curry was implying her body was “consumer goods … for use by men”.

    What is more objectifying? Reserving yourself for one man or showing your body off to every man? To me it’s not implying that she is for ‘use’ by that one man. It’s showing that she values him and respects her body. It is treasuring who she is and who she shares her most intimate characteristics with. It’s seeking to gain attention through things like intelligence and conversation and personality and not a sexy body.

    Thoughts on this issue? Does reserving your body for a man imply that your body is FOR him?
    someone put it into clearer words for me 😛

      If you view your body as a product or good that only one person should get to see, you’re implying that it has value that decreases as more people see it. And, if you think by limiting the number of people that see your body, you’re in any way *above* all those who don’t hesitate to show their ankles, you’re supporting this idea. So, when that one commenter said Curry was implying her body was a product for a man, I’m sure this had something to do with it. …does that make sense?
      Also, to me, to view the human body as an object that needs to be hidden from the majority of the world to preserve its value seems more objectifying than saying “people can wear as much or as little as they want, and do whatever they want with their bodies, and they’ll still be worth the same, because their worth isn’t determined by how many people have seen their elbows.” …but i

        Elbows are not a sexual part of the body. It’s no lie that the market everywhere sells women’s bodies for views/money.

    She’s entitled to dress as modestly as she wishes- and she can do so without the judgy tone in her tweets. She’s dressing in what she thinks is best for her, but that doesn’t mean it’s best for everybody.

    I absolutely applaud Ayesha. I think it’s really important to take a stand for what you know to be true, and for God. Speaking of being hated on/cut down just for posting something, I recently got that from a dear friend after I posted, on my personal Facebook page, that Macroevolution is a lie, and how Satan can use lies to manipulate us and destroy us (point in case, BTW… said friend is currently giving me the silent treatment, even after I explained countless times that I wasn’t even bashing people, I was bashing Satan and lies, and he still took offense to it, saying I was “attacking” other people’s beliefs, and thus, them…. >.>). My post was visible to only my friends, and it got mostly positive feedback actually, but was forced to take it down after my friend’s big blow-up…. like I said, I really, really look up to Ayesha for standing strong and not even taking down her post after that. I really wish I had her guts, and a stronger faith like hers….
