The world spins at the pace of a Clio 3 in fifth gear, so some things are inevitably overtaken by the evolution of mores. And, if we regret the tragic disappearance of top hats, there are other elements whose outdatedness is now a good thing. A lot of rotten stuff is now frowned upon by society, and that feels good. Much good.
1. Fashion shows with only size 34 models
The brands that continue to forget that not everyone wears size 34 are clearly 10 years behind and they deserve that no one puts on their fatphobic clothes anymore.
2. Low-rise jeans
When you bend down and people see half of your ass, you’re clearly not on the side of the people we envy.
3. Smoking cigarettes
It’s good, we understand now: it stinks, it kills and, even worse, it yellows the teeth. Really not crazy for something so expensive.
4. Spikes in the hair
With about two tons of #gelfixationbéton to hold them.
5. The first name “Kevin”
We have nothing against the Kevins, but it’s good for them too if we don’t hear less about them. They will be able to live quietly in anonymity. Anyway, we found replacements for them: the Enzos. Enzo iz ze new Kevin.
This time when the man who gave orders to the woman was valued now resembles prehistory.
7. The One Directions
Before, we couldn’t say it without getting knocked over by an army of furious Directioners, but now we’re saying it loud and clear: One Direction really wasn’t crazy.
8. Laugh at “swag”
A word that clearly has nothing swag left.
9. Sleeping with underage girls
The Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger and other Jimmy Page (to name a few) are no longer cool. Far from it, even.

10. Social pressure for women to wax
It took us a long time to understand that girls could do whatever they wanted and that men had nothing to complain about. Well, there are some who haven’t caught up yet, but it will come.
11. Redneck Jokes
Well ok, it depends which ones, because there are still some acceptable redneck jokes, but those that are racist, sexist and homophobic have generally lost the right of citizenship in good society.
12. Popular people in high school
They almost all end up becoming big nerds who miss their life as soon as they pass their baccalaureate. It’s still satisfying enough for those they’ve bullied for years.
In 2013, we could say without shame that we were watching TPMP, a little schoolboy show but not very bad at the time. Today, the thing has become revolting and we have (almost) all ended up realizing it. But the real question is: when will it stop once and for all?
14. The “eggplant” color in the houses
Damn, we couldn’t take this color anymore. Never again please.
15. Boy bands… well no
K-Pop unfortunately put them back in our face. But when everyone realizes that the members of these groups have horrible contracts and are modern slaves, the fame will eventually fall.
