 ;DReally I am agree with you because in my area there a lot of men are wearing same. I think in modern day young guys are thinking that it is a fashion. Most of the modern picture are also affecting the society.

Earrings, hair dying and regrowth, tattoos, the wearing of shorts, women wearing pants, etc.=vanity

Wenn die Rose sich selbst schmückt, schmückt sie auch den Garten - Friedrich Rückert.

Inasmuch as these acts often improve the society around the woman, they cannot automatically be considered sinful. Perhaps it's about whether the dress is perceived by the community as elegant or trashy.

I don't see how someone can say that earrings now woman are fine and dandy and then say for a man to do the same is unthinkable. Unless living in modern society is a new thing for everyone but me.

I've had everything (almost) pierced and gauged. Why not anymore? Several reasons.

- I took my lip rings out b/c I really love food and they just got in the way. They were really sore when I first got them done and after about two days of being hungry I gave up, took them out, and went to get pizza.

- I took my 7/16th inch plugs (large gauges in my ears) out b/c I just didn't like how they looked on me. they look great on some people, not I.

- My septum was cute as a button, I loved it, but I just got sick of it and people asking about it. One can only hear "does that hurt?" so many times before they want to become a hermit.  Same goes with my manymanymanymany tattoos.... just stop asking about them.

Also, before the question is asked...No, I am not, nor was I ever gothic. I'm preppy by most peoples standards. Tattoos and piercings are not exclusive to any sub-culture anymore.

Are they vanity? Most of the time yes. Do they have to be, no.

I really don't think that it is appropriate for a man to wear ear rings unless he is in drag.  Then it can be quite fabulous.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

I don't even notice it anymore honestly. Personally, I don't like needles and why would I want to pay someone to put more holds in my heads.

On a other topic, heres how easy it is to start a 'church' in the United States.
