Has anyone been scolded by aunties/uncles for not dressing or acting modestly in public?
Got a piercing done recently and I have been thinking about wearing a skimpy outfit in public that will show it off.
Surprisingly, what really put me off the idea wasn’t being harassed by guys my age, but the thought of aunties pulling me aside to scold LOL.
I told my friend and she agreed it would be more of aunties scolding than anything.
Out of curiosity, has anyone has been scolded by aunties/uncles in public for not dressing or acting modestly?
I personally haven’t, but an auntie did comment to me about the way another girl was sitting (she wasn’t wearing a skirt or dress so it was still okay to me, but auntie didn’t think so).
Here are what netizens think
- I think Aunties won’t confront but they will comment loud enough for the whole bus to hear.
- Nah not for those reasons OP mentioned but did got scolded by a auntie just cause I pulled down my mask for 3 seconds on a bus to wipe my nose. I ran for the bus so was kinda sweaty and wanted to wipe my sweat.
Auntie kept accusing me for being sick and blowing my nose on her. Almost got into an argument with her on a moderately crowded bus near 7am on a workday.
Ultimately decided the drama wasn’t worth it but was kinda pissed off tbh. I just went to the lower levels of the bus but can still hear her b-ching from the top level.
- Only my mother, she used to keep telling me not to wear low-cut or backless tops (but super short skirts are okay with her, idk what’s her problem with my torso).
I got sick of it and started saying things like, “Ew, stop objectifying my neh-nehs, I’m your own daughter,” and “Can’t believe I’m being harassed by my own mother, gross!” She was so disgusted that she stopped commenting on anything I wear lol.
Oh also my actual aunt once saw me just sitting and talking with 3 male friends at a coffee shop and went to tell my mother I’m hanging out with men and she should marry me off. ???? Idk what sense that made to my aunt but my mother and I laughed about it.
