Does dancing style of 'today's kids' signal lack of intimacy? (Written by STEIN)
Rumpshaker Detroit correspondent Stein just got his letter to The Michigan Daily published. (Reprinted below so we can discuss.)
To the Daily:
I first graduated from the University back in 1996 and just graduated again. In my years of experience here, I have noticed many changes, but none confuses me more than the way you kids dance today.
Just as Rick's has gone from live bands to DJs, dancing has gone from being a primarily face-to-face experience to one that almost entirely involves backing up of the ass. On any given night at any dance club in town, you'll rarely see people facing one another. Now, I enjoy a good dry hump on the dance floor as much as the next guy, but what's up with this phenomenon? Is it a fear of intimacy? Is it that no one knows any other way to dance? Is there some sort of shame in dry humping strangers that makes you not want to look at them? Please give me some insight. I'm sincerely perplexed.
