Recommendations Governing Dress and/or Manners

To do it all without any civilization and even culture is no truthful alternativ. But there is no, everywhere and always stable, consensus which and how much refinement on necessity and/or demands makes a cultured person – and it's especially quite problematical what happens instead.

'Back' to nature, paradise and/or utopia, have proved to be even more dangerous and cruel, than they are impossible. But sustainable moderation and prohibition of any misuse are in no way affected by that.

Based on practical aspects, many and diverse experience as well as varying common decency and conceptions of the world - but logically not without any arbitrariness and of cause authoritative inevitable decision – we do dress here and try to interact by finding tact or rhythm for really and truly dialogic communication.

'Back to the (not always and just own) roots', 'the (even or only perhaps continuing) way of progress' and/or circulation, may well help to clarify and perhaps (re)open some perspectives (where it is not only [mis]used for social enclosure). But thinking (posing the scholarly problem) and acting out (the political question) are at least not exactly the same. And time often seems to pass directed, so that historical developments became hard facts.

Of cause trousers, slacks, pants (in the American sense, too) and so on - are quite useful things and that 'originally' (as antique 'high' cultures called it) barbaric idea (anyhow with only few exemptions commonly not tailored and worn by anyone in the modern way before the early 19th century) has not only its disadvantages(!) and perhaps some less attractive backsides. But in some opposition to certain hypothesis of equalising globalisation-effects: Even today many of the people and peoples on earth do were different dresses (including male legs without any trousers). And don't always overdo the so called 'practical' aspects e.g. aboard or in sports. Time may (perhaps and sometimes) be money, but maximisation of money mustn't or (at least) needn't be the most importent thing at all.

No, we hardly insist on so prettily dressed boys: as it was the (especially upper society) custom in many, not only Christian, centuries and regions, and as we girls are still outfitted, with our great dresses or at least tops and skirts, on so many occasions here.

But yes, of cause, we like to accept and honour men wearing tartan pattern, kilts, caftans, habit, robes, trousers and so on - as long as females are permitted and (but) not forced do so, too.

And - after very intensive studies of especially anatomical gender differences and history - we do not insist, that males have to sit and stand like ladies comfortably do; but we expect and recommend that men and boys are really polite and (always) considerately bob their curtsies (not just in tartan).

Shall it be as it once had been? Until - as you all know quite well, since the Occidental 17th century - courtly arrogance (especially of absolutism) and male knowledge privilege as well as force established (it started during baroque age) the lasting difference in reverences, that womenfolks have (to continue in bending there knees) to lower their lap, while manhood only slightly bows the head (at best the upper part of the body) or even salutes standing 'erect'. For some (of them), it's very hard to believe (or at least to estimate that): females are no poorer warriors at all. But much more experienced especially in unreasonable treatment and therefore harder 'to handle' (and sometimes even to misuse).

* like this 2-year old New York boy in 1889, commonly The fashion of dressing small boys in dresses appeared at about the mid 16th century. At first the tops were more like their fathers, but by the end of the century the dresses were indistinguishable from those worn by girls. There were no specialized children's clothing at the time. And this practice continued through the late 18th century when specialized childrens' clothes developed.

Little boys continued to wear girls dresses in the varying fashion of the day.

Wearing specific clothes for learning and/or school (as well as for business and on certain occasions) was and is quit usual in most parts of the world. It is anyhow proved, that some sameness of learning and examination conditions can help a lot. - And that must not stop anyone making important experience (and to remember them) 'out of uniform', too.

Some people wear skirts for the first time here ...



- Don't laugh or incense too much, until you tried to behave in unknown circumstances yourself.

Hosery is able to be regulated, too.



At any rate in comparison: Perhaps somewhere our ordinary dress may be associated with (a very modern image of some formerly just Catholic) school girls e.g. in Spain (of all Granada), the USA etc.. But - even indeed professing confession - we are no denominational institution here. None of any (many) kind(s), that 'Germans' once could have quoted "unter uns Pfarrerstöchtern" either and not at all a Polytheistic one.

The – well, may quite be - immodesty of their short outfits is a conceivable sentence not just on zealots and e.g. trouser or pants fetishists, but certainly not to insult, tease, shame or provoke anybody (else).

Where and how long 'that dyade/couple' or even he has/have to prove how to behave in skirts (never exposing any private ...), of cause depends on their misdeeds and mainly the court.

Ok, to take it a bit more serious: There are, were and will be some Western trends to expose more and more parts of the bare (female) body publicly in everyday live. Trends, we do not follow uncritically; and there will continue to be, were and are some others quite in the oposite direction, we don't totally obey to, either.












Wearing trousers and pants isn't at all exposing less of any person's legs - especially including some private parts -, than wearing skirts, caftans, saris, robes, sarongs, kilts etc. does. - And the 'bare-legged depilating thing'-questions depends on virginal myth, length and hosiery, too.















Another, quite usual, custom here might be even more astonishing for some of you (spellt with the smal 'y'). It should be easy to imagine, that we dress differently according to our actual missions and we considere each other as equal human beings (naturally guides and teachers bow their knees to pupils and the other way round – anyhow we all are only imperfect ãîì lamedtim / talmudum [students of schel olam íìåò ìù]). But there are considerable status differences, too. As everybody should know, the highest ranking duties and jobs are (any kind of) services.

Yes, teathers/authorities do curtsy to and for pupils here. And that the school 'girls', students etc. – even parents not excluded – may responde likewise, isn't the main point of that rare, initial or rule alternative.
