A Word To The Wise Regarding Professional Dress And Behavior

After reading this Matt Walsh article from theblaze publication, this writer totally agrees to both men and women making application of the prudent policy that both Vice President Mike Pence and his wife have toward dressing and behaving professionally:

Regarding their policy toward "at work" dress, Mr. Walsh writes:

"At work, you can dress professionally and behave professionally towards everyone. If a woman dresses like she’s a 19-year-old sorority girl at a frat party, and behaves in the same way, acting flirtatious and familiar with the men in the office, she has created an inappropriate environment. If someone responds to those cues, she is partly to blame. And if a man carries on like one of the frat boys at that same frat party, making vulgar and sexual comments, he has also created an inappropriate environment. If he is accused of harassment, even by someone who previously seemed quite fine with it, he cannot claim to be a victim. He played a part, so did she. It would have been best for both parties to have simply acted with modesty and dignity to begin with."

Regarding their policy toward "outside of work" dress, Mr. Walsh writes:

"Outside of work, a married man simply shouldn’t hang out socially one-on-one with a woman who isn’t his wife, and he should be careful about drinking at a work party or some other gathering if his wife isn’t by his side. Mike Pence’s idea is to be absolutely above reproach and immune from suspicion. We should all have the same goal, and we achieve it by severely limiting the opportunities for inappropriate behavior to occur, or be alleged to have occurred."

To which this writer can enthusiastically add, "Amen"! Regarding the sexual harassment problem: 1 Thessalonians 5:22; (MEV) should be a word to the wise, along with Romans 13:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12.
