I am in a store, any store. A child sees my leg and is interested. After all, I am inviting curiosity by wearing shorts. Out of the corner of my eye, I watch to see what happens while I shop.
The child points, the mother says, “Don’t do that! It’s rude!” But she doesn’t explain. She doesn’t explain my leg to the child or why it is rude to point.
The child is still asking her about my leg and she is getting angrier. He still doesn’t understand why she is so angry. He is just being curious.
