I'm not sure if this is going to be a new trend, but it worries me.
Is it considered chic these days to open your knees up to the general public like a boozed-up girl with no personality? (And trust, it's always the boring ones who feel the need to present their crotches to the world.)

I gotta say, though, for not even having reached my 25th year on this earth, I feel mighty old-fashioned for speaking out against this.
After all, men are pretty much given free reign to do whatever they choose with their crotch-areas, be it scratching, grabbing, or thrusting, all in the name of being fashionably cool. So I guess this is some form of equality.
...Yay for everyone?
(If you need me, I'll just be over in the corner with my legs crossed. Someone should be actin' a lady.)
