Twerking: A type of dance that you put your feet apart, squat, arch your back and then have your hips go up and down and back and forth and then shake your booty!
It’s hard nowadays to explain to your children all the things we see young adults doing. Most of the time your kids are the ones teaching you what is going on! But in reality, we have been doing some kind of twerking for a long time. Miley just brought the word to our attention. I will admit, though, that it’s way, way too disturbing to see such suggestive behavior on television and in social media. We practically have to turn off all TV’s, computers and smart phones to avoid it and, let’s face it, that’s really not going to happen!
Back in my teenage years, KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Shake Your Booty” was pretty much the same thing, but I don’t remember all the explicit sexual overtones.
Are we becoming too tolerant and permissive? Please share your thoughts about whether this is going too far, or just what is accepted today.
