rant on pants
I’m talking about skinny denim knee-length shorts. Possibly the gayest-looking male fashion ever. And I don’t mean that in an unintentionally anti-gay “that’s so gay” way – I mean it in a “it makes you look like you are gay” way. Misguided gaydars are blipping all over town. So stop it. Stop the madness right now!
The uptake seems to be worse amongst youthful mods who think coloured plastic sunnies are the height of cool, synthesised voice makes the song, and Kanye is god. Even He’s managed to maintain a certain looseness and softness to the fabric of his short pants and I applaud him for it. Although that’s not saying much – these days I would applaud him for being any less of an asshat than his usual douchey self. But I digress. This fashion madness seems to be confined to those between the age of 15 and 25. If I saw it on anyone over the age of 25 I would be seriously concerned about their capacity for mental growth. We can forgive mistakes of the youth.
There is a recurring theme here people and it is “why?” Why? Why? Why? And why?
