Cleanliness is Next to Godliness

A certain discourse that creates hierarchy (clean = good, dirty = bad) as something unusual/unaccepted/etc can be called 'dirty' and thus has stigma attached to it. This can be seen with the caste system, as the lower classes are 'dirty' compared to the 'clean' higher ones.

Clean/regular/hegemonic fun can also be pretty dull, so fuck it - let's just play together in the dirt, sweat a lot and have fun with the filthy side of life, whatever that is. Isn't it good for the immune system?? Oh, and having 'clean' environment can also be problematic.
