What causes some religionists to have problems & issues regarding human
sexuality, sexual expression, & the human body, particularly the female human body, that is outside their particular religious purview & ideology?
Perhaps if one deems worth to psychology and psychiatry, then one is more in tune to a religion of physicality, the trappings of which are a distraction from the potentially much larger reality religion typically attempts to address, albeit it it always fails.
One very big problem lies in the minds of those who do not understand that it is not which comes into our minds, as to what we select to pay attention to. There is attraction between the sexes. We know that men are drawn to women just by observing an attractive woman's body. But that is Nature. A man needs to accept this, admit to it, and not blame the women for his own, natural inclinations.
Now, we all know of a particular religion where the men won't take responsibility for their own prurient thoughts. So they force their women to dress from head to foot so they are barely discernible as human beings, let alone women. And if a bit of bare leg, or even a female's attractive tresses are sighted, they blame the woman as a temptress! In others words, they hand their power - the power to decide to look and not be tempted - to the women. And the chances are they call this inability to take responsibility for their own thoughts, "manly."
Then, in Christianity, the Old Testament describes how Eve tempted Adam. So, once again, the poor women get the blame.
Will things ever change? Maybe. But don't expect it to happen day after tomorrow.
