Default Question for geezers ?

Is it just me ? I find that the current lack of morals and the wide spread acceptance of obscenity as entertainment is disturbing .

Two examples

It's not just you. Obscenity is the feeble effort of a weak mind trying to express itself.

The only problems that I found were........

1) There's no way I could get invited to that party.

2) If I did get into the party, I'd look like a 62 yr old fool (which I can be).

3) Maybe I could go to their Christmas party as Hugh Hefner?

These are the same ones that are in OWS. They all want to be black.

Maxim magazine is for Black wannabees (sp)?

Looked to me like a lot of hot young woman that probably have no political views or deep thoughts.

Agreed. I must be reaching "geezerdom" because I seem to find more and more stuff objectionable, even though I grew up in the Navy and can curse up as blue a streak as anyone.

For example, my hot as hell niece posing in a hoodie with "F*** City" stitched on the front of it in big letters. I asked her why she would demean herself like that; why she would deliberately advertise she was easy or a slut, which to me, is what it implies. She pooh-poohed me away -- "You don't get it; it's a clothing line I'm helping to promote. It doesn't mean anything at all." WTF?

The shock value of the F-bomb is gone, I guess, but no way in hell I (or any girl I knew growing up) would have gotten away with wearing ANYTHING with the F-word on it, period. At 56 years old, I still wouldn't wear anything out in public with the F-word on it.

Obscenity? Are you like 100 years old or something? Nothing I saw on those videos that I would not see at the beach.

Lighten up.

Amusing, obviously a Geezer in US is the exact oposite of a Geezer in UK, that party would have been full of Geezers. The young ladies in question did seem high spirited fillies but nothing more than one would encounter at the average coming out ball, that's coming out of a debutant just for the avoidance of any more "two nations divided by a single language" misunderstanings.

I didn't see anything in those videos that I would call obscene.


Vulgar maybe. In bad taste.







But it would be fun to have been at that party














BTW, why the hell did I even click on this thread? I ain't no geezer!

It just makes me upset that we didn't have "the current lack of morals" when I was younger.


BTW, Am I a geezer at 50??

OOPS I commented on the wrong link. I must have brought up one of my favorites in error.

I tend to focus on how I should live rather than how others behave .. all part of the human condition.

Live right and it falls in your lap... just sayin'

I’m a month away from my 30th birthday, so I don’t consider myself a “geezer” by any standard. However, what I have noticed in music, fashion and just society in general over the last 10-15 years is a transition from suggestive and innuendo to blatant and in your face attitudes.

For example when I was in high school Brittany Spears was the top pop star, and her songs like “I’m not that Innocent” were popular. This song was suggestive, and everyone knew what she was saying but it wasn’t so blatant. Here are the words to Rihanna's song that was on radio all summer

"Cause I may be bad but I'm perfectly good at it
There's sex in the air I don't care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
but chains and whips excite me"

This isn't some risque song only played on an obscure rap channel, its a top 40 on the pop station song.
