Horse feathers.

Poppycock and nincompoopery. Tattoos? There is nothing wrong with tattoos on a lady. Nothing at all. Or hair dye I suppose. I would not use it myself, and besides, my hair is doing that two tone thing on its own, going grey as hell in layers.

Guess what...I just put on something like "yoga pants", they're called long johns. It's cold, but in a humid sort of way.

Even the cows and calves are cold. Obviously we've seen MUCH colder, but the cows don't understand.

My point is, nobody wants to see me in my long johns, it's silly. Even though I'm not fat (I'm not thin) but, it's not appropriate.

I actually like "yoga". insulated pants. I don't wear them outside, but some like them (cute "adult" girls). I like that they are proud of their efforts.

I just had to go out and feed cows tonight. They all come in, and many of them were cold, with the wet and the rain and snow.

There is this member on ATS, who calls himself "redhorse". He spells himself as an "honest man". Perhaps he is.

Perhaps he really is roping steers from horseback....perhaps he is.

Personally, I think he's never ridden a roping horse in his entire life. Nor, has he ever stood up out of the dust when he got knocked down by a tiny bull calf on the run!!!

He's just an immature little boy.

So, what's your verdict ATS? Post your opinion on this! Are you like "Yoga pants for everyone!"


or "Cover your ass!"???




I think we are in step.
Flesh toned leggings are particularly a problem.

No, of course people in my generation did some freaky things but it wasn't as main stream as it is now. Back then, the only people who had tattoos were male and female bikers, criminals, and guys who were once in the military. Earlier generations had temporary fads like men growing their hair long, tie-dye t-shirts, love bead necklaces, bell bottoms, white belts, platform shoes, silk flowered dress shirts, and disco music.

A generational fad usually only lasts about 10-15 years. The sagging pants fad started way back in the early 90's and I still see young guys today trying to walk down the street without holding onto their pants! Some of the fads of today are permanent such as, tattoos and stretched ear lobes. What you think is cool back in high school, isn't as cool once you've become a mature adult. Tattooing your face and getting a tattoo sleeve can easily affect someone from being gainfully employed or being shunned by a particular profession. I have a friend in the medical field that has told me his medical facility will not hire anyone with visible tattoos.

The use of the "F" word is so common today, most young people can't have a simple conversation without describing anything without using it in a sentence! I was at a little league baseball game when a young mother was yelling at her son from the bleachers to "hurry up and pick-up the f'n ball and throw it home!" She stopped after noticing everyone was giving her a disgusting look. Kids back in the 60's, 70's and 80's wouldn't dare say "F-you" to a teacher. Back then they would have been jacked up against a locker, paddled and sent home. Than your parents would take over once you got home and ground you from going anywhere for weeks! We had consequences for poor behavior. Today's teens don't have consequences, it's why there's much more disrespect, rude and mean behavior among young people.

Girls who had class didn't swear, or they didn't swear in front of guys. If they did, other girls would consider them nasty and guys would be shocked hearing them swear.
Back then, if girls got pregnant during their high school years, they were immediately removed from school. Today young girls who are 7-8 months pregnant are walking the halls in high schools!

We also had much more censorship on T.V. back in the day.

So really, today is nothing like what your elders experienced when they were young. The last thing I would want is a tattoo that reminded me of the stupid things I liked back in high school and my college years. Being a walking billboard my entire life isn't my idea of a generational fad.

I hear now they have glow in the dark hair dye! Waiting to see how that takes off. It may save lives crossing a busy street at night!

That's precisely why I dyed the underside. I'm starting to sprout greys. So I've got to leave it alone. But it doesn't matter what the under layer is doing, so that's where I'm having my fun!

See, I cuss like a (well educated) sailor, but I know how to hold my tongue in public. That's tacky as hell to yell out an F bomb at a little league game.

And luckily I don't regret any of my tats. They're kind of in line with my spiritual beliefs. The greater the opposition within a system, the greater the yield of said system. So my tats are water/fire, past/future, nature/technology, East/West, etc. Very symbolic.

But yeah, I was taking care of this old lady in the nursing home years ago and she saw my tats. "Oh honey, why did you do this to yourself? Only carnival folk get tattoos." Lmfao!!!!!! Ok lady, do you want me to help you get ready for bed or not? Times they are a changin'!

@Flyingclaydisk I hear ya man! I would run around in thermals all the time on the farm! But I'm in the big, bad city now so it's proper clothing when going out. Although, a few weeks ago I was in pajama pants, a tank top and flip flops and took my boy to check the mail. At the playground at our apartment complex I saw another mother on the phone while her kid was playing. We had the exact same outfit! Lol! I was like 'Hey! Mom uniform!' Lmao!

It could also make people think they are having a bad flashback.

Hey, that's some real selective outrage you chose. Every generation complains about the fads of its successors. The youth in the 20's grew up to complain about the "lewd and vulgar" pop culture of Elvis and the 50's. The youth from the Elvis generation grew up to complain about the sexual "perversions" of the "free love" hippies and the nudist colonies they inspired. And the youth from the hippie generation grew up to complain about the hair bands, hip hop, and the drug cultures around them (as if they didn't do the same stuff in their own youth). And now some of those youths from the 80s and early 90s have grown up to complain about yoga pants, tattoos, and vibrant hair colors.

It's kind of hard for me to fault the kids of today for their actions when it's the generations before them that taught them this stuff. As in, any "failure" of a younger generation should fall directly on the shoulders of its elders because they're the ones who control the society that taught, raised, and "corrupted" the kids. Though I don't see any of these as being failures; it's just kids rebelling against the norms of their parents, which has happened throughout time.

Oh & I also disagree on there being more or less censorship now. Maybe you're right if we're strictly talking about public access tv. But depending on the time period, there were quite a few adult movies/shows back then (Pam Grier ftw), as well as burlesque shows, speakeasies, minstrel shows, etc. And instead of swear words & vulgar rap music, people back then were publicly saying things like this (which ironically was part of an entire vulgar genre that was like a racist bizarro form of some of today's vulgar rap music):

So in the grand scheme of things, I just don't see today's generations as being any different than previous generations.

I read something once that kind of went like, "if you're not okay with your children drinking, then you shouldn't drink either."

Which basically meant, "you are supposed to be innocent too - do not defile yourselves."

So, think of innocence, and then ask yourself if they should wear that. If the answer is no, then you shouldn't be wearing it either.

Pretty simple.

It depends on how they're worn. I have quite a few leggings, some are worn out of the house and some are for lounging around the house. If the leggings are put together with a nice outfit (and cover the butt) it's cool to wear them out in public. If someone is obviously still in their pajamas and looking like they've just rolled out of bed, hell no.

Have to admit, I've recently been wearing the at home leggings to run errands. Still recovering from surgery, so I've been giving myself a pass.

Jenny, you are so sweet you get a free pass anyway!
Good to hear you are recovering well enough to be rockin' the yoga pants around town.

You go girl!


There are some that I own that I wouldn't dare wear outside the house though so I 'get' that.

All the best wishes for a thorough recovery!


And if you see me at Target, and you're wearing your leggings, just go "Whoa there ladyvalkyrie, it's me Jennyfrenzy, I get a free pass remember?"

Lol!


But seriously, the women I saw looked fine, I would just personally not leave the house in something so thin and tight without something covering me bum.

I'll have to get one of those borat mankinis and wear it about.

It's super comfortable and keeps you cool on those hot days.
