Look at the teens today.
They will do anything to attract attention to themselves. Makeup, dress up in weird clothing( mostly like ladies of negotiable virtue [for girls]or pants that reach only up to the thighs and are held up by sheer magic [for boys]), changes to the natural body, etc
I blame it on the celebrities, whose names I will not mention now.
Why go to all the trouble to gain attention. If you want attention in a public place,
The louder and smellier, the better.
At least you will eat something, rather than starve to look skinny.
