Same Us, same They, same Things; then what’s the difference?

You are watching a hollywood movie- a nice and decent one- and you agree that its a good clean movie. But if you watch the same movie with your parents, you will be rolling your eyes and looking here and there during some scenes. And you wish your parents haven’t watched it. So its the same you and the same movie, then why the difference?

We watch Western’s wearing pants/trousers-shirt and it look nice and decent on them, but the same clothing worn by a Pakistani actress is (“was” some years ago) considered vulgar. I won’t get in the debate of what’s right and what’s wrong, but my question is that if its the same ‘us’ and the same things, then what’s the difference?

Usually writing on such a controversial social issue is not my thing, but a friend of mine asked me a similar question -in just a btw fun way- and it got me thinking… why? By now I know the answer, but I leave it to you to figure it out by yourself.
