We aren't always taught what things mean, we tend to just pick things up as we go. Our perception of things can be different which makes things hard. The peace sign could mean one thing here but something totally different in another country.

Our generation really does interpret everything differently and usually in a negative manner. the definition of words is just one example, if someone has too many tattoos they're trashy. If a girls shorts are too short shes a slut, if a guy genuinely likes to cook and is clean, hes gay. You do realize what happens when you ass-u-me right?
