We all have to be careful these days, and I think this is what’s leading us down the path of everyone wearing the same silver jumpsuit in the futuristic movies.
We must be wary of the signals that we are giving off to people who are so consumed with bizarre symbols that they cannot be bothered to get to know people as humans, but rather approach them when a hanky or a belt or an earring indicates that the stranger is a kindred spirit.
Inspired by GingeroftheNorth who was informed that by the simple act of wearing a certain bracelet she was indicating some sex practice, I wanted to make sure we all had a complete list of what we can and cannot wear or display in our daily lives lest we be confused for Carp Diddlers or something.
Of course, the classic is the “which ear are you wearing your earring in” quandry, and the classic SDMB Column of 'what does a red handkerchief in your backpocket mean", but what are the others?
I was told only a few weeks ago that if you hang mardi gras beads from your rearview mirror it is a ‘universal symbol’ :rolleyes: that you are into BDSM. I said it then, I"ll say it now…somebody better shoot of a memo to my sixty eight year old aunt who just thought the colors were pretty.
So what have you heard?
