Goofy Trends that make you go WTF!
ok, here's a new thread...
how many trends can you think of that made you say 'wtf is THAT all about!?'
for example, it could be anything from mobile phone ring tones to clothing trends.

so i'll start with a couple of clothing trends. First off is guys wearing pink clothes. Ok, i don't know where pink shirts and sweat shirts came from but come on, PINK?!?!?!

sagging pants... this is just overly over the top i think I've seen some people who slightly sag the pants and that looks fine i guess if you like that sort of thing.

but the kind of sagging pants i'm talking about are the ones where they're literally almost to the knees and you can see the guy is walking with his legs spread just to hold them up I mean come on man!
i saw this one guy in town the other day walking like a friggen DUCK just because he was trying to keep his flippin pants from falling down to this knees!

As far as the 00's go (yeah, as if the simple fact that this decade is literally the zeroes wasn't enough of an indication of what it feels like to live in this decade wasn't enough of a givaway), it would take less time for me to make a list of trends that DON'T make me go WTF...

If I'm not mistaken pink used to be a colour reserved for young boys of royal blood. That was 100 or so years ago. Don't rememeber. Read Wikipedia.

Crappy pop/Disney/hardcore/emo music. It's polluting the airwaves.

Re: Trends that make you go WTF!
ok, i got another one...

people who wear video game shirts and don't know what friggen game it is!!! they just wear them because they think it looks cool

like my cousin (i really dislike this guy btw) had a mario kart donkey kong t-shirt on, so i thought 'finally I might have something to actually talk about with this guy for once'... so i approach him and say 'hey so you've got a little mario kart going on there with the t-shirt?' and he's like 'wha?' and i'm like 'you've got a mario kart t-shirt' and he's like 'oh that's just something sham (his wife) got for me... it's some games thing i think'... and i'm like '........'

yeah, this is also very annoying.

it's kind of freaky (warning, very very large image)

Spoiler:



also there is a growing fashion trend of "nerd", like people dressing with "nerdy" clothing but with little touches that makes it more "fashionable"

That's not exactly "new" at least where I grew up.

I'm tired of people whipping out their iPhones like they're the most goddamned important person in the world and making a big scene about using them.

And Cosplay is also acceptable at Conventions like Otakon.

Meh... I don't wear pink, but I do like rainbows.. and I'm straight. Do I think it's brave of me to wear a shirt with a rainbow on it? Maybe it is, but I don't expect any kind of medal of valor, or even recognition for it. What I do expect though, is that courage shouldn't even be required for a straight guy to do that. Society, by being a bunch of idiot phobics and getting terrified of being labelled by association, just handed these things over to the gay community on a silver platter. Guys won't even hug each other anymore out of fear of others thinking, "Hmm... are they gay?" Its things like this that demonstrate just how stupid people are. And I'm not pinning the gay movement as the only time this has happened. A classic example is the Swastika. All it took was one particular group to twist it into something else, and now that's all anybody sees it as. That porch-monkey thing from one of the Jay & Silent Bob movies was obviously blown way out of proportion, but it in a bizarre South Park style way, it did seem to have a point.

Naa... Cosplay is definitely needed. Halloween has lost all originality. For anyone above the age of 12, the only Halloween costumes are Slutty (Insert Profession of Choice). Halloween isn't about costumes or trick-or-treating, or its original spiritual significance. It's become the only day that teenage females get to take off the costumes they wear every other day of the year, and reveal their true forms. Cosplay is pretty much the only time anybody does anything creative with costumes anymore.

This was big in the 80s for a while with the preppies. Don't know if that was the first time in modern history or not, but for a couple years a large portion of high school and college age guys were wearing pink shirts, sweaters etc. It went out again thankfully. Is it back? Ugh. Honestly, I don't even like pink clothing on women, unless it's undies of course.

Re: Trends that make you go WTF!
All trends that I don't personally follow make me go WTF, including but not limited to:
- Watching sport;
- Following a sport team;
- Not liking rap music;
- Calling anyone who experiences emotions an "emo";
- Calling anyone who isn't lazy a "tryhard";
- Etc.

Seriously, one trend I hate -- and this is indeed "serious" -- is the trend towards removing civil liberties in the name of our "safety". Why won't Jacqui Smith just come out and say that she thinks we're all socialist monsters who need to be crushed under her jackboot, rather than pretending that we somehow "need" to have our Internet activities monitored? If we've nothing to hide, we've nothing to fear, yeah, right

If you're talking about what I think you're talking about (based on my vague memories), there's no comparison. Dress/golf shirts that had pink in them were BARELY pink. Clothes like that were typically off-white, just a hint of color. That's a far-cry from the "Shredder's Nuclear Turtle-shapeshifting Mutagen" pink that we see all over the place now.

I wish the non-conformists would try a bit of non-conformity that's a little more meaningful and consequential than clothes. I hate these kinds of people, not because they "dare to be different," but because they're surface-level shallow dipwads who can't think any deeper than their clothing choices (and they can't hit a note of true originality even there).

Tack on the fact that they tend to be every bit as judgmental and cloistered and cliquish and image-conscious as the most slavishly devoted Abercrombie & Fitch enthusiast, and it's just another case of the same old crap in a slightly different wrapper.

Goths, emos.

Also, Twin, I find pink shirts to be pretty alright. Not so sure about pink pants, but hey. I like 'em.
I'm a furry, actually. However, you won't see me in one of those damn suits in any lifetime, nor acting as oddly as them, only within the select few people who don't mind that sort of stuff.
Then again, I never said I like only one gender..
