RE: Clothing: A Powerful Aspect of Our Identity

in StemSociallast year

A well-researched article, as usual. I agree that clothing affects a lot of things about us. I just love to dress comfortably. That is all that matters to me. I also do not like to be told what to wear, to be honest. This is perhaps one of the reasons I refused to join the navy/airforce even when the opportunity presented itself. It is also one of the reasons I dislike 'corporate' jobs where you are dictated what to wear.


I have been silently hoping to see #science on the trends at POB. I love STEM. There's a certain level of professionalism that's refreshing about it.

Core sciences do not have a lot fans on the chain, just as it is even everywhere. Unless one tries as much as possible to write in a language laymen can understand and relate with

I think many people believe 'science' is something apart from them. For me, 'science' is not a separate discipline. It's everything around us. It answers questions that arise about daily living. I think we make a mistake in school when we separate science from other subjects. Especially history cannot really be explained without an understanding of science. Try talking about WWII intelligently without explaining the development of the atomic bomb. Or try talking about fossil fuels/environment without addressing nuclear energy. Or the development of the canal system without talking about mosquitoes. For me, this approach to integrated education should begin in the earliest grades. If we did that, the language of science wouldn't be so alien to people.

There I go, on my soapbox :))

Have a great day, @gentleshaid.

Hello @sholaris.pob! I love STEM. My formal education is in history, literature and languages, but my whole life I've been a science tourist. It's all connected. Thanks for the gentle suggestion. I've never posted in the Proof of Brain community (although I did join it), but now that I know my rather long, well-researched articles may be welcome, I will.

Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting my blog. Hope the week ahead is great one for you.

Trust me, it's welcome. I'm happy to curate well-researched articles. Especially from StemGeeks and StemSocial. I think the trick to this community would also be to associate the topic with something that's important to you or Hive in general. However, that can't always be done.

Hi @gentleshaid,
Thanks for that nice assessment of my blog. As I explained in the blog, clothes never meant much to me. I guess in a way I went against gender stereotype. When I was headed for college, my mother and sister realized they had a problem so my sister took me shopping so I would have the right clothes for the right place :) I can follow orders about clothing if they are simple, but I really can't invest any of my emotional or intellectual energy on them. However, when I dressed today, I thought about the blog and decided to switch things up. Did it make a difference? I don't know.
I still think it's not worth my time :))

Hope you and your family are well.
