I have noticed,walking down the high school halls, the horrific clothing worn by teens. The boys, sadly, wear their pants in such a fashion that the top of the butt crack, and their boxers/briefs are seen. It is very disturbing. The girls wear their clothing with their stomachs showing, and sometimes, they aren't the skinniest girls, so it isn't attractive. Someone please tell me when this will end? Will we ever learn that all of our clothing is suggestive anymore? I would like some answers please!

It starts...
in the media, that giant, ideologically engorged breast that we all suckle from. When you normalize a social practice, like butt-crackery or naval exposure, those who don't jump on the bandwagon are ostracized from the symbolic order. Does anyone want to feel hated by their peers on account of their social disobediance? Sick sick sick system - if only more people wore their clothes inside out.

This should make for some funky discussion - thanks for posting, eye sez.

I have to say that quite often it is not an attractive sight, like 11 year old girls with make-up on and earings and stuff, says Pope Alexander the Umpteenth.

But teenagers are teenagers, they will change as they frow up and so in the long term I'm not sure how important it really is.

What is disgusting is people who in later life decide to go for the teenage look and end up looking like sad misplaced virgins on a path too social exclusion. Heh heh. *ahem*

HEY I dress that way!!
of course I do, my belly shows, my butt crack too, sometimes when I get chilled the nibs show,,,OH>>>>>hey wait a minute you mean NUDE parts........well NO then I do not Bare that way.
My husband works in a Junior school, and the kids start early. I know its not always at home tho. My daugher who is now 27 was considered to all a "Preppy" Calvin Kleins, Guess, etc she had lots of nice things. Then we found out that she would wear things under them and wear them in school, the darker side of her. But they all consider it to be freedom of speech. It will NEVER stop. This kind of behavior has been going on for ages. When I was 13-14 I would not wear a hat, nor gloves, had a nice long maxi-lenth coat I wore open to matche the lit smoke in my cherry red lips, under the butterfly mascara eyes, and my hair was not Farrah Fawcett, but Cher hair.
My jeans were tight, with a body suit under. All hand me downs from my older sister, but I was cool. And cold in Winnipeg sub zero temps in the winter. I hung around Pool halls, smoked, panhandled, sold patches for jeans that we made, was hippyish at other times. I did what I and every other teen thought was cool and it was our freedom to do as we wanted.
They do have guidelines to abide by for clothing at school. It IS that mass media producing that Beautiful nakedish "want-me-and-no-one-else" clothes. What are we going to do? Mass markets make the money........our kids spend it.
I know of some of my daughter's friends that had the peircing, the black lips, eyes, and they were the MOST welcomed kids in my home, respectful, and the brains at school that were being used.
One thing I know for sure, I did something right with my girls, maybe it was all the time I gave them when I was home from work, the long walks, talks, building legos, playing with play dough,,LOTS OF things....
Great subject to write on, thought provoking and sure to get lots of feed back,,,,,

The LONE winded Dar.......whew I am out of breath, you try saying all that in one breath!!

Thanks Gen,

Dar ;)
