On Unisex Clothing and a Movie Education (sigh)
To me, they sound just like they look, but scrubs by any other name would still be ugly. I guess it is the nature of "unisex" clothing. When you take away the details that make an article of clothing distinctly masculine or feminine, you take away the beauty too. I think you even take away some of the dignity of the person wearing them. At least, in my experience, such clothes don't enhance the wearer's dignity.
I mentioned this to Nathaniel and Emma on our way to church Sunday. "Nurse's uniforms used to be attractive," I said. "They wore white dresses and neat little hats, and they just looked so much more professional than now."
"I know that, Mom," he explained patiently. "I've seen Pearl Harbor."
