Oleg Cassini Says

It does not surprise me when I see a woman being discourteous to another woman. It doesn't surprise me because I've come to expect it, so instead it just makes me ponder once again the nature of the beast. For instance: Why will young, energetic women rarely give their seats to another woman who is very pregnant? Why will they elbow each other with relish at a bargain counter in a manner that would appall the crudest man? Why will they imitate each other fiercely yet steadfastly maintain tliat they are originals.' Why will they blatantly knock a woman to get the attention oi a man they don't even care about? For one good reason, courtesy as a value is on the decline - so naturally its sometimes-opposite, self-expression-becomes a paramount value. The exaltation of the self-whether through individualistic clothing or through contemplative yoga— has been on the rise for a number of years. The degree to which it is carried, and the motivations behind it determine whether it is wholesome self-expression or obsessive self-indulgence. Now one of the simple facts of life is that men work for a living and usually hard enough to leave them little time for such frivolities as innerdirected contemplation. So j while they might actually come to the same conclusions as the women (a statement which I doubt), they just don't have OI.EG CASS1NI i the time to bother. Women, on |_ the other hand, have time for just precisely tliat kind of timejconsuming indulgence. They have the time to tell themselves' they're merely expressing themselves and their inner needs, when in fact they are throwing normal, civil rules to the winds in favor of wayward personal license. Civility, of course, is a prominent value in a civilization, as any etymologist can easily explain. Almost by definition, civility involves you in a relationship with another, no matter how superficial or transient. It obliges you to consider their feelings when expressing yours. It sounds simple, and in ages past it was not only simple but second nature, an absolute part of one's upbringing and outlook on life. But not these days. The mothers may be teaching it, but the gals aren't with it. On the contrary, they are perfectly willing and delighted to write off everyone who isn't in their group. The group, naturally, tends to live by its own rules and codes (which usually questionnaire (funny how we "Concerning that Virginia share precious little with what generally passes as courteous benever managed to see an over- gentleman you've heard so much havior).
