Cale with brain injury has opened doors in a wild-kind-of-way into a mans brain. He has no filter. Everything comes out and comes out with anyone and everyone around (oh the joys and adventures...and blushing that goes on around here!!). I'm in no way going to say that I'm now a girl that has the male brain completely figured out, but I will shed light on just one thing he said to me that has made me really think...
A couple weeks ago we were looking through a magazine and we flipped to a page with a lady standing there in a bikini with a beautiful beach scene behind her. I think the add was for perfume which I'm not sure fit the picture in the slightest, but it did cause my husband to quickly turn the page and yell out to me, "I can't see that! She's in her panties and bra!" I smiled and let him know it was a swimsuit but that I was thankful he didn't want to look. He shrugged his shoulders and ended it with, "Eh, I can't tell a difference."
This instantly put the thought and realization that of course he can't! It's the same skin showing! My guess is that this is kind of how it works for guys (at least most!).
With his honesty and lack of filter, he's not thinking about what's cool or in style. He's simply stating that to him...that girl is almost naked.
A friend posted a video on FB within the last week and because the swimsuit was already on my mind, I was intrigued.
Please know I totally understand that everyone has an opinion about this subject and I'm not posting this to judge, just...letting thoughts out. :)
I know for me, these two things make me think twice about what I'm willing to wear.
