But its all the fashion; so be cool!

I was doing some essential shoe shopping for my wife in the MetroCentre mall, just next to the banks of the Tyne in Gateshead.


Now I was just ambling along, not taking much notice of anyone or anything, when I saw this vision of up-to-the-minute-fashionably-dressed female, along with a gaggle of friends.


I was later advised by a shoe shop attendant nearby that the ‘fashionista’ was wearing a low-cut cropped top, very low-cut ‘super-skinny’ jeans or leggings which left lots of bare midriff, offset of course by mid-riff pierced ‘jewelry’, high-heeled strappy sandals, heavy make-up, approximately ½” long false eyelashes plus lots of, I think it is called eye-liner, but, not being any sort of an expert, it may have been something else; set off by what seemed to my admittedly untrained eye as an expensive hair-do.


The reason for the pause in my perambulation?


This example of parental surrender was, I estimate, eight years old!

    Perdition the long way down and anyfin’ you want to do kid – and yup, it’s OKayed by the amorality or sheer shit for brains: of what is sometimes known as ‘society’.

    I remember my first school, “Primary” as they used to name them.

    A bit bog standard out in the ‘burbs’, it was mixed, when they got to eight or nine some girls EVEN wore earrings [though it was frowned on]………! Also, boys and girls in classrooms it was no big deal, separate bogs and girl guides and cub/sea scouts but that was the only major difference – we did most things together and although we enjoyed different sports but never really regarded ourselves as so different but such was school life back in the day and there wasn’t much banter about ‘boyfriends’ and ‘girlfriends’ – and social sexualizing kids simply didn’t happen.

    ‘Tarting’ You could perceive it in some but all that stuff REALLY had to wait for secondary level education and some girls really pushed the school uniform uniformity – lots and lots. Parents usually drew the line and headmasters if necessary.

    See the difference.

    There was the other thing too, when/if your child misbehaved at school if the parent found out – it was the kid [miscreant] who got belted.

    Contrast, these days if the school chooses to discipline a boy or girl – the parents [parent?] rush to school to berate the teacher………….All hell will be let loose, AND if their precious precocity requires to dress like, a meld of Britney, Lady Gaga or Rita Ora whosoevah – then she will be given the slap, dosh and wardrobe – no matter how old the ‘little princess’ is and that’s that.

    Who are the idols of these 7 to 11 year olds? Pop groups like Little Mix or The Saturdays, who dress like Parisian prostitutes, only with less class, and who spout lyrics which are sexually suggestive. Then they have people like Cheryl Vaseline Vermicelli, or whatever her name is this week, who has shown all the class of a Newcastle slapper. These kids grow up with parents who may be only 16 or 17 years older than their offspring, and were themselves influenced by the nun like antics of Lady Gaga who “wants your sex, wants your disease.” and people wonder why these infants dress the way they do. They’re doomed!

    If that’s how they want to dress, so be it? It’s their choice. Hopefully they’ll grow up unmolested by Muslims into women who won’t need all of this caked on make up.
