I can’t believe this trend continues. It is so wrong on so many levels, lol. Let me count the ways.
- You look dumb ass stupid.
- You look ready for a prison “adventure”
- You look like you can’t walk
- You look dumb ass stupid
This is not just a gangsta phenomena. There are plenty of white boys trying to be tough guys too.
Here is Justin Bieber. Before all his tats. So, if A=B, and B=C, then A=C. Saggy pants lead to tattoos. Naw, just kidding. Or am I…….
Anyway, I never have understood this trend. Although I favor the origins theory of the saggy pants being a signal to the other inmates that you are “available”, (also known as jailin’, or PBS (Prison Bitch Syndrome), the reality is that there are droopy drawers in prison due to oversize pants and no belts allowed, least the wearer be found swinging from them. Regardless, they look stupid.
Rappers were the original saggers. Remember Totally Krossed Out? They took droopy drawers one step further, and wore them backwards. What a concept!
Ok, so people can do whatever they want, for the most part. But for the love of all that is holy, PULL YOUR PANTS UP!
This picture was posted on Facebook. This trend has been around for a while now, and I sure don’t understand it. Why would anybody want to walk around like that? Although they shuffle more than walk.
Maybe they don’t realize how this trend started in the first place. If they did, they would pull up their pants REALLY FAST! This way of wearing your pants, called sagging, originates from jailhouse fashion that signifies you are someone else’s property, and it makes it easier to be “available” to them when the mood strikes. Seriously.
And how stupid, anyway, if you want to be all bad ass and gangsta, you’re not going to get too far running from the cops in sagging pants and untied shoes!
Some day they are going to look back on all this, and their kids are going to ask them why they went around half-dressed all the time, and hopefully they will realize how ridiculous they looked. Just like us baby boomers in the 70’s, ha!
We may have worn hip huggers and crop tops, but we weren’t shuffling along like a grandpa in our saggy pants.
So unless you’re a grandpa or a jailhouse bitch, pull up your pants! Ain’t nothing there I want to see!
