“When people say it is unafrican to scantily dress I wonder which Africa? Our weather is made for scanty dressing and that’s how ancestors dressed. Go check the pictures of your grandparents and ancestors. Tattoos, scarification, tribal marks, men plaiting hair are all African

“If you want to say your religious beliefs stop you from dressing scantily then that is your personal business. Don’t impose it on others or say it is unafrican to be scantily dressed. Africans are people with control over their desires. Find your lost control

“For the religious police, you were told to LOWER YOUR GAZE not harass anyone

  3. Yes, religious should also have impact in our dressing because if we dress unholy it will tell on our religion. Culture is different from religion and we should not mixed up things together. At anybody can dress about his/her religious view.

  4. Some religions don’t mind weather o, you must dress as the law said. But if you really mean what you are saying then why dressing like that, bcoz what am seeing there that you are wearing is not scanty

  5. Yes she’s right our weather is made for scantily dress, in continent like Europe they dress according to the weather outcome and not base on religion.

  6. Yes our foreparents dressed scantily may be because of the type of hot weather in Africa.
    Any one who is talking of religion in connection to dressing, should follow his or her own belief and leave others alone
    This is a free world and everyone has his or her own choice of life as far as that choice of life does not affect anyone adversely
