Baggy pants debate continues

This is a touchy subject and has people up in arms.  Banning baggy pants  is not the answer.  As much as I hate to see it, that is not going to change young people and the adults who wear their pants 4 times their waist size.  It wouldn’t be so bad if people’s boxers were not being exposed and have to constantly see people pulling their pants up every 10 seconds because they literally can’t walk in them.

Another problem is you have grown ass men who wear their pants hanging off their asses!!  I am 32 y/o, and never once did I think about buying or wearing pants that were too big for me. 

So what do we do about this?  Should government tell parents how to raise their children, or should parents be responsible for that.  Read what one father, Lionel had to say about the baggy pants debate:  Click here

My sons and I wear baggy pants,” he says. “We should be able to wear whatever we want.”

Ugh…I hate when grown ass people act like children. 

Lionel is father and no one wants to see his pants hanging off his butt or see his boxers.  Then he takes a step further by describing how showing your boxers is apart of the baggy pants outfit.  it is obvious that this brother is ignorant. 

The cool way to wear baggy pants is with boxer shorts: plaids, prints. An un-cool way to wear baggy pants is with tighty-whities, briefs. That’s a no-no,” Lionel says.

Am I being judgemental? Yes I am.  I wonder if he is teaching his sons how to be responsible young men.  If he encourages them to read and become educated, instead of coordinating match boxers with baggy pants.  I am not saying that if you wear baggy pants you can’t be educated, but you can not get a job wearing your pants like that. 

A lot of our parents use to wear clothing 2 sizes bigger because they could not afford to keep buying clothes.  In jail inmates use to wear baggy pants because they didn’t have belts or had to wear whatever sizes the prison had at the time.  So how is wearing baggy pants a fashion statement?   

This just goes to show that as much as I don’t agree with government telling people how to raise their children, something has to give because when you have parents like Lionel, who is describing what kind of boxers you should display with baggy pants it’s hard to swallow… just my opinion…
