I finally got what I consider to be a decent and respectful shot of the ‘split pants’ phenomenon in China.
Toddlers wear split pants because they are allowed to do their thing wherever they happen to be on the street or sidewalk.
In this particular picture I wonder if the little girl is also wearing a diaper too? If so, I don’t get why she also has a split back to her outfit . . . oh well.
This is one cultural difference where I am not a proponent of ‘understanding’ because in terms of hygiene and public sanitation I cannot comprehend how it can be justified.
That, and having to avert my eyes whenever I see an adult squatting on the sidewalk or street with a child in ‘the position’ . . .
No thank you.
