Easily-Swayed Straights
It’s been quite a few years coming, but the latest clothing craze has got my jock-strap in a bunch. It appears that the straight population has no spine, creativity or leadership qualities with regard to fashion. I’ve accepted men running around with eyebrows like McDonald’s golden arches OR the insanity of pink and neon green footwear, but can we take a breather with the “Skinny” jeans?

For those who are not familiar with the skinny jean concept, it is similar to what we in the golden era referred to as cigarette pants. Any casual onlooker would need to now assume that the thuggish-looking guys are the gay ones and the flamboyant, tight-pant, pink footwear-wearing ladies are the heterosexual men. Well lick my pierced nipple… I’ve had it! I’m disturbed by the allegedly straight men rocking pencil-thin eyebrows, pom-pom hair poofs and skinny jeans. I’m even more concerned by the girls and women who find these men attractive. All said, what is really going on? I’m all for individuality, creativity and forward thinking in fashion, but can the straight men stop being such followers? I’m sick to my stomach to watch as straight men turn into 80s school girls.

What current male fashion trend makes your stomach hurt – BAD?!

Keep passin’ the open windows…

did one of those skinny jean wearing perpetrating a big old fraud like they are straight try to step to you or your man?

personally, I like my man in levis 501 jeans, a little worn out. The nuthugging thing is prostate problems waiting to happen.

my song of the day is "I'm Going Down" by Mary J Steroid I mean Blige.

Peace

I'm sick of cornrows, but I don't think they will ever go away.

Hey J...yeah, I've been pierced for some time...got it at the same time as the tattoo...killed two birds with one stone...if you look at one of the beach photos on the ride of my homepage you can see it...

Wait a minute, Jared. Not touching nipples though. You're a fool.

As for the post at hand, I'll have to go with the damn bandanna around the neck. Some mean (rapper Juelz Santana) have even started to wear their Louis Vuitton scarves like Islamic headdresses.

A mess.
