Does the world have to be civilized in the same way it was, or can it be a new kind of civilized?
Currently there is a town near where I live that passed a "Saggy Pants" law. If you are a young man (typically male) and you are found with your pants down to where your underwear are exposed...you are taken to jail and fined.
Now, I see that one 18 year old male has found a lawyer who is willing to fight for this young man's rights to wear his pants down and exposing his butt wrapped in his underpants.
They brought in a fashion expert who stated that this style of dress is an expression, and an accepted form of fashion!
My first thought was "What has happened to JUST BEING CIVILIZED"!!!!! It seems almost vulgar to me to see someone with their but and underwear all exposed (pants down under the entire buttock)...but later today...as more time passed along...
I thought...well, who is to say that we can't just live in this new progressive world, in a "new" sort of civilization...is it SO bad that maybe some of us have to have an attitude adjustment. Should we even care? Where SHOULD we draw the line? Or should we draw a line? Gee...I'm wondering all of these questions after hearing about the Saggy Pants law suit this morning.
One thing I don't want to become is someone who is unable to see new ideas.
