Acceptable Things Today That Were A HUGE No-No 50 Years Ago.
The only thing worse than airing out your dirty laundry was actually showing your underwear in public.
Modern designers have created fashion that allows bra straps to be totally visible, but years ago, people would have a fit if they were seen people wearing low-cut jeans that showed off a G-string. Also, showing off a bra-strap was a major faux pas...and it kind of still is in some places, but you won't see people fretting over it, thankfully!

You’re a fashionista if you walk indoors wearing a hat, but 50 years ago, this would have been a major fail.
Wearing hats indoors isn’t exactly a sign of disrespect or the acts of a person who hasn't been taught "good manners." In fact, most people consider it very fashionable and trendy. But in the past, you couldn’t walk into someone’s house or a restaurant without being told to take your hat off.

No one minds airing their dirty laundry for the world to see, but everyone was hush hush fifty years ago.
Social media has given us the freedom to share things about our personal lives as if we were all members of the Kardashian/Jenner family. But in the past, people didn’t like airing their dirty laundry in public. And yet, no one seemed to mind watching someone else do it on shows like “Jerry Springer."
There used to be a lot of stigma surrounding gay people decades ago, but thankfully, that's not the case anymore.
A lot of countries have legalized LGBT marriages, but in those days, it was a forbidden topic that a lot of people didn’t even want to talk about. But today’s modern world has slowly become more accepting of all forms of love.
These days, it seems as though people can’t communicate unless they add a swear word in a sentence.
Swearing is a lot more acceptable in society than it was a couple of decades ago. It used to be considered impolite, especially among women. But today, men and women equally mouth off all sorts of profanity that would probably give their grandmothers heart attacks.
