That's different! Halloween is the exceptional 1 day of the year that I will kick it with gangsters and hookers, and maybe even drug dealers...

Haha Ik it just kinda made me think of that.




The bad thing is, I was dressed as a freaking death angel type thing and I was the one getting called a hooker! Lol.

I don't like the look, but I also don't care. There are LOTS of looks I don't like & this one isn't any worse or better to me. I don't understand how it can be comfortable & frankly I ahve often tried to figure out HOW they were even staying above the knee,when they look like they are just about to fall....but other than that, I don't give it any thought.

Trashy.



If you wanna look like a gangbanger, be my guest, but I'm not having it anywhere near me or my family.



If I lived somewhere where there weren't gangs, I'd probably not be as judgmental and just assume it was a dumb kid who wanted to act tough, but here, you can't afford to not be judgmental. There's a big problem with gangs in our city and given that, my assumption is that if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waddles like a duck, it's a duck. I'm not sticking around to find out.

IDK - I used to drive around big cities alone, all the time for my job & the areas I visited were as ghetto as they get as I went to manufacturing facilities & in places like Chicago, Philly, Cinci, Indianapolis, that is WHERE those factories get put & I never thought anything of it then either. if someone is going to hurt you, it wont' be because of what they are wearing.

Of course not. Clothes have no magical powers of transforming character. But certain characteristics make people more likely to present themselves that way, and none of them are particularly flattering. There are some very clear signs that someone is not a person I want anything to do with, and sagging is one of them as it IS used as a gang thing around here.



I don't care if it's judgmental - there needs to be some judgment in the world or we'd be opening ourselves up to a world of trouble. If you're too open-minded, your brain is going to fall out.

And it's nice and relatively safe inside a car, all very well to talk about how you drove through somewhere. You get out and walk around Philly on a Friday night, and if you make it back, you can tell me all about how nice and hospitable the people were just because you didn't assume anything about the company you kept based on how they dressed.

I walk around Philly at night and have no issue with sagging pants, and I'm not threatened by people wearing them. Probably more so because I've been exposed to lots of people who were awful and neve had "gangster" "ghetto" or trashy clothes, and plenty of people who dressed terribly and were wonderful.

Can I just say the "IF you make back" line is hysterical

Chances are if you like people who dress like that, you belong with them.



I don't. Philly is a crime-infested rathole. Lie with rats, wake up with fleas.

Apparently she's an expert on Philadelphia. I had no idea my city was so dangerous!
