"Students Still Sweat, They Just Don't Shower", by Steve Sailer - The Unz Review
Looking up, I see James waving me toward the hallway. White guy with blond hair and green eyes; rocks the Bible and a smile all day. Besides, the faster we get walking to the showers of hell, the faster we get back. As we start walking down the hall then step outside, the smell of shit from a nearby pig barn makes my stomach turn. Twenty yards later, we turn back inside, into a red-brick hallway, where we walk along a yellow line. The hallway is even hotter than the outside. I begin to sweat more.
Commenter James Kabala pointed out this interesting NYT article from 19 years ago on a little discussed social change:. But among most American high school students these days, one thing is considered way too strange: showering with classmates after gym period. In a striking measure of changed sensibilities in school and society, showering after physical education class, once an almost military ritual, has become virtually extinct. And the reasons seem as varied as insecurities about body image, heightened sexual awareness and a lack of time in a busy school schedule. Students across the United States have abandoned school showers, and their attitudes seem to be much the same whether they live in inner-city high-rises, on suburban cul-de-sacs or in far-flung little towns in cornfield country.
