Cultural evolution of trousers

Postby skirtyscot » Fri Aug 15, 2014 8:05 am

Not exactly advocacy for skirts, but a well-researched article. The story of King Wuling is an amusing parallel to our situation!

One of the links in the comments section is quite something. 25 pages of erudition which I did not wade through!

Oops, silly me! I copied the link them somehow forgot to paste it. Interrupted by something, that's my excuse! It was actually part 2 that I meant to link to: http://socialevolutionforum.com/2012/07 ... -pants-ii/

Perhaps we may see a return to the attitude that trousers are barbabaric.
Something we've known all along.
Great article but I found the comments a tad "deep".

Well it is a forum for academics to discuss sociology with each other.
