From This American Life: Man wants to follow tradition and take graduating son to steam room. He's startled by a couple having sex in steam room and leaves, leads son away from room, making up excuse. Later, father reports "Inappropriate Behavior" to owner. Son watches from window across the street, questions Dad, "what's up?" Answer: sex in steam room. Son says, "Oh yeah, awkward." Dad has epiphany. He labeled the Behavior with his judgement. Son, instead, shares a feeling it gave him, without judging it. Dad admires son and his generation and it fosters hope: he interprets it as evolution.
