Q1: I saw a post on instagram that according to the catholic tradition, women aren't meant to wear trousers simply because it's masculine and should only be wearing feminine clothes like skirts and dresses. It said that because of modernism people have embraced such clothing calling it unisex clothes like jeans, and when women wear them, it is suggestive even if it was meant to be modest. Could you comment on this?

Q2: My husband says that he can't relate to pornography as a false means to seek intimacy because for him it was only voyeurism. What does a man seek in pornography, or looking at women in Sports Illustrated? Can my husband be right?

Q3: What is the key difference between Catholicism and Protestantism?
