Anyone from anywhere has been told at some time or another, usually beginning when one is quite young, how to behave and which is the right way and which is the wrong way to perform certain actions. It is understandable, and necessary, for general cultural standards of behavior since any group or culture tends to partially define itself by certain mutual behaviors. It is also understandable that there are even more general behavioral standards that are applied tl all human cultures and in other animal cultures around the world as well, such as don’t kill your own kind. However there are standards of behavior taught with all the intensity of the major ones. These are beginning to be taught to children as young as one or two years old even though they don’t seem to be as critical as they are made out to be. Manners, such as table manners or wedding etiquette, could as easily be a matter of personal choice as well as being a matter of everyone’s business. Yet people are castigated or praise on the basis of their expressions of etiquette and judgements are made about them. Decisions are made about whether or not certain people are accepted into a society and a version of mob behavior ensures that that opinion is propagated throughout that particular group. When cultures and peoples have become as mixed as the Earth’s has, isn’t it fairly ridiculous to maintain those prejudices based on something as minor as clothing or diet?
