Brian Sauve tweet

In our over-sexualized culture where nudity is commonplace, it's rare to hear someone encouraging women to think twice about what they're wearing before they post a photo on social media. A Christian pastor dared to go against the current and encourage women to quit sharing half-naked photos of themselves. He was met with some criticism.

Brian Sauvé is a Christian pastor in Utah who is also a husband and a father. He doesn't necessarily have a huge following, but he certainly made waves on Twitter recently when he wrote, "Dear Ladies, There is no reason whatsoever for you to post pictures of yourself in low cut shirts, bikinis, bra and underwear, or anything similar – ever. Not to show your weight loss journey. Not to show your newborn baby. Not to document your birth story."

The Tweet Generated Much Criticism

He tweeted this on February 7, and since then more than 20,000 people replied. Most of the comments came as criticism, from both men and women.

The memes came rolling in straight away, as did the men who decided it was their job to defend women's rights to dress however they want.

Plenty of women chimed in as a response too, demanding that Brian keep his opinions to himself.

While there was some positive feedback, the majority of the replies in this thread were not in agreement with the pastor's thoughts.

Adidas Had the Strangest Reply of All

Weirdly enough, Adidas decided to jump in on the conversation. But they chose the strangest way to reply – by posting a collage of multiple women exposing their bare breasts. Nothing is blurred out. Nothing is censored. It's simply a photo of naked boobs.

"Dear Brian, All bodies should be celebrated and supported, without shame or exception," @adidasUK wrote as an accompaniment to the photo.

We're still trying to figure out why this is the response that a major activewear brand chose. Perhaps they thought the very thing this guy is condemning would be the perfect thing to throw in his face.

Brian Pointed Out the Hypocrisy

Apparently, Brian has been receiving nude photos from women as a response to his tweet. He took a moment to write another thread to point out the hypocrisy of this choice.

"If a man were to send you unsolicited nude pictures or sexually explicit videos of himself, you would (rightly!) judge him as a sexually abusive pervert. But you can do it to me? How does the ethical math work out on that? Maybe your sexual ethics aren't so ethical after all," he wrote.

"Here's the thing: You can't even obey your own man-made laws. Even with respect to your own standards of right and wrong, you fall short," he continued in the next tweet.

He makes a good point. If the feminist #MeToo movement is all about consent, and if these very women find it offensive when a guy sends them an unsolicited naked picture, why do they think it's okay to do the same thing to a random man on the internet?

Also, do these women really think it's an own to send a random dude photos of their naked body? Whether or not you agree with Brian's original message about how women should dress, he sure does highlight something we have all noticed: many modern feminists contradict themselves when it comes to sexuality and nudity.
