Very true. Our newest mall here has a large sign at each entrance informing every patron that if they use obscenities, or dress in a manner deemed inappropriate by the management, they will be escorted out the door.

It's my favorite mall.

Ok, I know posts like this make me sound old...but hey, I AM old! (54yrs this Sunday) However, here goes...this sort of thing described in the OP is just a reflection of how our society has gotten "cruder" for lack of a better word, over the past thirty or forty years. I am not advocating a return to an artificially prissy society where married couples on TV have to be portrayed in twin beds and the word "pregnant' couldn't be said on the I Love Lucy show....BUT, I think we could use a lot more decorum and restraint than our society is currently exhibiting.

(kaykay steps off her soapbox now...)

Very little is shocking today,even compared to 10-15 years ago. I saw a young guy at a festival downtown where I live a couple of weeks ago wearing a T-shirt saying "B**ches Love Me." REALLY CLASSY!

Aren't there laws against profanity in public places?
I felt so sorry for those little girls.
I just can't imagine my mom or dad wearing something like that at all!
What is wrong with people today?! No class at all!

It's just a word. Years ago you couldn't even say "breast" or "thigh".
