Early Nineties

I started secondary school in the early nineties so rave culture was underway. Ecstasy was everywhere. Needless to say we we were rich brats so money was easy to come by.

Despite contraception many girls had to leave school early pregnant, the rich ones got abortions.

Everyone seems so square now and uptight.

I do think that a silent sexual revolution has taken place and the younger generation don't have any of the hang ups previous generations have.

Once these male, pale and stale proto-dictators die off the world will be a much better place. It's evident with the way those young adults are standing up to the NRA that things will change for the better.

I would love it, but I don't believe it.
Those people have children and lots of those children are not progressive.

When I was a child I heard about women's rights and how we had them and former generations didn't. My mother worked, I had strong women in my family and so I though "wow, we made it. So great that men and women are equal now and that's done."
Not quite.
Lots of people younger then me are conservative. Women still make less money. And sexism? It doing just fine.

Same with racism. How can you be 20 years old now and a racist?
I don't know. But they are out there.


I think we have more progressive people now, feminism is stronger today and racism is more talked about and not just denied. But we need more change than just the old folks to die.

I wouldn't judge the coolness of a person by their number of unwanted pregnancies.
I happen to be as cool as an rebell teenage ice bear at the North Pole and I never had an unwanted pregnancy. (Reason: great contraceptives and luck)

Sorry I can see your confusion, they are separate paragraphs so the two thoughts are not related. I would never conflagrate the number of abortions someone has and how cool they are. That statement better reflects the difference in life chances between girls at my school, girls who were poorer were forced to leave school those with more affluent parents could discreetly arrange abortions without interrupting there daughters school work.

One major difference between then and now is that mental health is taken much more seriously, many things were brushed under the carpet. Exposing the sexual abuse scandal is another example of this.

(As a caviat, I'm speaking from a very privileged point of view, it's just my personal opinion)

Keith,
You know you were sheltered, c'mon!
I know my city is in a fly-over state but in public school here, we had metal detectors starting in middle school to get in the building. Columbine didn't happen until I was in high school so we weren't worried about guns, but I saw a few knife fights amongst pre-teens. We started drinking and smoking pot around 11 yrs old. One of my friends got pregnant at 12. I was asked to get "jumped in" to a Mexican gang before I got my period.

Then I went to an all-girls private Catholic high school because my mom wanted me OUT of that and environment. I dated boys(MEN) in their 20s and left prom early to go to a rave and do ecstasy and mushrooms at the same time. And all without a phone, oh the 90s....

In a few year smartphones will probably be required for homework assignments the way that laptops are now.


My high school experience was extra regular and square compared to you guys.
