I had always thought if there was one good thing about having grown up in the eighties and managed to survive the complete disaster that was its fashion, it would be that your senses would become so totally shock-proof that you could handle any kind of crazy trend that followed. But there is this one weird thing that no matter how much I try, I just can’t seem to get used to. What is it with these girls wearing hipster jeans and having their thongs stick out from the back and walking about in a constant wedgie state?

I don't know about that my dear, but I do know this:
line-up-cover.jpg is 236 kb.
Now, how about that?!
Did you ask kamyar?

Gazankhan, I looked everywhere but I couldn’t find the CD with Shirin’s pictures in it. I think the quality of the print in 236 kb will be bad.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to be interfering. But Shirin is not in at the moment and I thought this information might be useful.

I was also confused by this at first (having grown up through the 70's!), but then I noticed that it is actually the nature of the thong that is significant. The statement is in the kind of thong that is revealed: Lacy and racy. An investment that would be made in the good 'ol days by women with a steady lover (partner, husband, etc) and worn mostly for 'special occasions'.

Take stock that, these are high school aged gals whom are NOT wearing white cotton undies with cute wee pink roses on 'em. The message: I'm not CUTE, not INNOCENT, not a little girl. In a way, it's an advertisement. Perhaps not unlike the black eye-liner all the way 'round (and inside) the eyes in the eighties.

I think we can thank the distorted 'girl power' movement of the 90's (Britney Spears and the like) for the new twist (supposed empowerment) on the 'bad girl' image.

... and some even have bling bling stones instead of cotton in the back... what the h*ll is that??? For people with an itch...?
Sorry, but I get really upset when I see 13-year old girls buying these.

aha, but, what about the boys with their trousers' waists around thier thighs. Aren't you tempted to pull them down? One day my dear, one day! Also with girls, if I must see something, I'd rather see the thong than their cracks!!

Thanks Kamyar.

Altogether I think I’m just saying that because I’m jealous of people who can actually wear thongs and be able to walk about as if it’s the most natural thing in the world when the mere thought of wearing one gives me the heebie-jeebies. Sigh. Yes I can only wear big pants :-( Actually hat’s more girl power isn’t it? I wear big pants because they are comfy and you better find that sexy or else. :-)

Anahita, I saw Richard E Grant on the High Street in Oxford. Kensington, hey? You a bit posh or what? ;-)

Gazankhan, I'll find a way of getting the picture to you with better quality.
