Decent And Indecent -- What's The Difference?!

Decency -- I have heard people use this word all the time to depict what people really are like, maybe in their own terms, or just plain blanketing. The same goes with indecency. In your own terms, definitions, experience - or whatever you choose to use as a yardstick - what does a 'decent' guy/girl mean? What does an 'indecent' guy/girl mean? Give your explanations if you have any.

Going by your expression, can a supposed 'decent' guy have a relationship with an 'indecent' girl? Also, can an 'indecent' girl have a relationship with a 'decent' guy? Should dating exist between only 'decent' girls and guys, and also, between 'indecent' guys and girls, going by your explanation of course.

if i decide to give my guy a fluting at a nigt party, wold you say that is indecent.

decency is an attempt at being polite when you want to do what really interests you

indecency is that thing that you do with yourselves that others frown at.

Just one of those topics that "grounds" will be shifted till prostitution is defined as a white collar job.

Seriously now,i believe decency borders on moderation as perceived by each individual/group of people.

You choose to eat certain foods and not to eat some; same goes with drinking, and as well as smoking. You choose to smoke and not to smoke, and because it's an addictive habit doesn't make it indecent. Do you want to tell me you're not addicted to doing certain things? Do we say, hitherto, that what those things are indecent?

Decency depends on your point of view.

A decent girl can dress indecently, what does that make her?

A decent guy may drive a decent car and have a decent house and job, but have an indecent behaviour like smoking etc.

Bottomline is: Everyone has got a point of view, and everyone will have both decent and indecent attributes in everyone else's view!

Gosh, now i'm confusing myself sef

I think it depends on individual perception. Sometime, what is decent to you can be indecent to another. It is like we are are lens through which we view others. Most of the time, our perceptions are based on our experiences and knowledges. Since we cant all have world wide view of our environment, our definition of decency and indecency is greatly limited to our individual understanding.

As a clue, I grew up to perceive people who dress other than African style as indecent just because I have watch many films as a boy that show whites people in an 'indecent' manner. As my knowledge and experiences expand, I found out it is what I perceived not the general state of thing.

In short, we define what is decent or indecent base on our individual experiences and knowledges.

"indecent" guys do tend to target "decent" girls sometimes.

more rarely, vice versa too.

@The Seeker.

Just like the saying birds of the same feather flock together,

A decent guy would definately hunt for a decent girl. No individual would seek for someone who doesn't possess the same qualities as himself.
