I recently attended a reunion of the class of 1961 of Bennett High School in Buffalo, NY.
As part of the weekend events we were given a tour of our high school to see what had changed and what remained the same.
Our society today tends to have crazy attitudes toward the body.
The body is glamorized in the media (using impossible models for the rest of us) and this in turn leads to issues of body shame (sometimes producing eating disorders).
But it reminds me of what I experienced at Bennett High School in Buffalo during my freshman year (1957-58).
