Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Haughty with stretched forth necks

I hadn't notice this before.
2 Nephi 13:16 Moreover, the Lord saith: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched-forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet—
It says "Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks, and wonton eyes, walking and mincing as they go,..."
While much of the wording here points to promiscuity and intentionally drawing attention to one's body, both "haughty" and "stretched forth necks" are references to pride.
That is interesting because I have long thought the verses about the women in the church in the last days in 2 Nephi 13 will prove to have their roots in feminism. And feminism is about nothing if it isn't about pride.
