It started with the skinny jeans. They look awful on pretty much 90% of the population regardless of sex, body type or weight. Yet people still insist on wearing them. Why? I have no fucking clue. I mean, yeah, I can get the whole subculture identity thing, I suppose¬† … but on this scale? It’s no longer just a subculture thing … it’s a revolting mainstream trend.¬† Please, people, PUT THE SKINNY JEANS AWAY!!!! Better yet, burn them. They are not attractive … AT ALL.

Not only was I known to complain from time to time about what the kids were wearing when I *was* a kid, but at least I have enough sense not to be seen in public in a body suit and skinny jeans with a zip on the ankle again.
