"When you’re a teenager, a year can be crippling to maneuver through. Some things happen when you’re like 13. All of a sudden you go from being this really confident, no-worry little kid to having all these weird insecurities for no reason.”
FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.
so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.
(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )
HOLY SHIT WHAT
I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.
HOWEVER, that context does not include footbaths, which were a longstanding custom in the general region of Mesopotamia and considered the mark of hospitality. If you see a biblical passage about washing feet, rest assured: somebody was not furiously grinding a washcloth on anyone’s genitals.
