Why do young girls dress like hookers?
A) Maybe, just maybe, it's because they were taught to do that from birth.
B) Maybe it goes deeper, straight to the DNA given them by Yahweh the Sky Daddy.
Or, a combination of both? I would argue nature over nurture, or at least that nature is the stronger influence.
But, back to A)
'Ah, look at you. You are soooo pretty. Let me brush your hair and put lovely ribbons in it. Someday the young men will be fighting each other for the chance to marry you! Want to play with my cosmetics? That is so cute!'
The girls that don't willfully fall into this model of behavior are told that they will never catch a man. 'Want to be an old maid?'
Brings up the question of course of 'why should I have to catch a man? Sounds like a disease! I am just as smart as them (smarter than most even), just as strong.'
'Why? Because we as a society say that you must!What is 'a society' and why should you care? Silly silly questions! Now go and put on your prettiest dress for supper. You know Daddy likes that. We must please Daddy.'
Ain't sayin' this is not sick people and my mock-up may be more representative of the previous generation. Might be.
Now B) What did the cavemen do?
Dragged their subservient wenches into the cave?
Yes, that's it!
Why did that happen? Because women knew their roles! Very possibly, at that point they didn't intellectualize the 'whys' as I'm sure the rock headed men didn't either. It was the way they rolled, but be assured that even then, in the whatever paleontoligal period that I'm speaking of, that the girls were in competition for the strongest studliest man in the cave, asshole that he may have been (face it guys, he was an asshole!)
Why did the girls go pick red berries to blush their cheeks with (according to Jean Auel's "Clan of the Cave Bears" chronicles at least... ah, Ayla!)?
Ayla was smart, yet hookerish!
They were the early version of today's "young girls dressing like hookers." There is a functionality there people!
So. Nature? Nurture? Combination of the two?
This may be a controversial subject.
Damn, I hope so!
