 Yeah saw this. Prevailing opinion seems to be genuine confusion as to why someone would care so much what others enjoy wearing. Don't wanna wear one? Then don't.

I really don't put much interest in Yahoo (or most Internet only) articles.  While Yahoo and others are starting to get publicity for their "news" groups and some additional access to newsmakers (like the President), they do not seem to have the resources to dig deep into the material, dig-out non-Internet opinions, or fact check in the same way as the major newspapers and magazines.  Yahoo news is more like a small-town paper as far as depth of coverage goes.  I also believe that they tend to write stuff that will draw people to their websites which either directly or through advertising will promote products they suspect will be of interest to people who bother to click on the story title or lead.  Traditional news media provided stories and are supported by businesses which agreed with their views.  Most Internet news outlets sell advertising, then provide stories designed to draw people to the advertiser's products or services.  Yahoo, Google and others could be a major source of news and opinions, but generally take the easy "fluff" stories which are rarely timely, not very thought provoking, and not of major importance.  "What happened to the Brady Kids" may be interesting to some, but probably will not result in major discussions.

To the credit of these services, true news is reported almost instantly, something print media can not do, but Television and Radio have been doing for years.  Internet news sources have the ability to provide small groups of people, spread over the entire world, the opportunity to have almost instant access to topics with low levels of readers -- but because of the low interest, and lack of or minimal potential advertising revenues, these services don't put much effort, if any at all, into the stories these people would be interested in reading.

Internet advertising pays the Internet provider for two things.  First is the number of people who click on a particular article or news website.  This is similar to TV charging more for time during a popular sporting event than during reruns of a 40 year old sitcom which never had that much fof a following.  This is also similar to the circulation of a newspaper or magazine.  The ones with the greatest circulation get the biggest bucks for advertising since more people potentially see an advertisement.  Even the location in the paper or magazine, such as opposite the comics or  on a sports page get more money than ads placed in other less-read sections.  But the second source of revenue on the internet is the "per click" charge.  Each time you click on an add or link to a product through another site, the site which directed you to the new site often gets a kick-back for the direction.  There is no equivalent thing in other media, except maybe coupons.  Coupons pay the reader (coupon presenter) for buying a product.  Most people don't realize that coupons are paid for by advertising budgets.  On the Internet, instead of the consumer being paid directly for reading and eventually buying a product, the payment goes to an internet company instead.

 Mary, it's not political news, it was just showing how attitudes towards thongs are changing based on how people jumped all over a woman who got all pissy about her son seeing skin at the beach (surprise surprise).

 I read the article when it was out a week or so ago.  After reading the article I felt like it was baited toward making conservative values look old and out dated.  I also felt like the writer was being a bit unrealistic.  (I mean really, your concerned that your18 month old son is going to see a ladies butt cheeks and be scarred for life?)  I just felt like it was a fabricated story.  It wanted it's readers to think a certain way.  Again, it wanted you to think that the writer was a young conservative with old fashion values not a progressive, hip, forward thinking young girl that is free to do what she wants and isn't tied down to a bf and his oppressive (conservative) outlook.  The writer was concerned at what her boyfriend would say or that he would "let" her wear a thong or cheeky bikini at all.  Or that her 18 mth  old son might get the wrong idea.  Seriously? 

I think Mary has a point that it just might be politically driven. 

Ever hear of fake news?

 Not sure what the political motivation would be, seems more social to me.  Everyone, including every "reporter" has a point of view, and even if they try to hide it and be neutral, it will come through in their work.  Of course, some folks are more than happy to share their view point, and not try to hide it at all.  I could easily see with Trumpster in office though, that the conservatives will try to make more progress in turning back the clock on some things while they have the chance.
