I feel the same when a rapper wears a hockey jersey.

No, It's not okay. Men and Women have DIED in this uniform and people need to respect that. I have no problem with waering BDUS for paintballing, hunting, basically anything with the outdoors.

Actually, driller, they damn well know what it is. As Meth is from the Wu-Tang Clan. A lot of thier clothing style takes after military fashions. Like camo pants and the such. It always has been. Even before this 'trend'. Red hangs out with Meth and it is only natural that they style was handed down by Meth to Red. Including the philosophies and such. The warrior aspect (esspecially that of a Marine) is part of thier philosophies. They actually read a lot of books in Wu-Tang Clan. A lot of Eastern Influences, which naturally brings the warrior aspect to their style.

Pick up a book and read some time, it's fun . (The Wu-Tang Manual, by The RZA)

Ok, just want to agree with all that has been said here, and ask your opinion on something. What do y'all think about someone wearing camo (as in a baseball hat or a t-shirt) not like the BDU type clothes being sportted by everyone now. 'Cause I wear stuff like that, but I do it to show my support for the armed forces. I have a hat that is woodland with the army seal, and I just love it. I think it's cute to wear, and I like being able to tell people I do all I can to support the troops, including the ones in Iraq. Y'all don't take offense to that do you? I mean I have tons of respect for the uniforum and I've lost a close friend this year, I've never gone with the trendy type stuff, it's like "who care's; wear what u want to wear and what u like the best not what all the preps are into". Anyway what's your opinion on civi's wearing camo to show their support?

I totaly disagree with what most are saying here about why kid shouldn't be wearing camo.

I think the kids should wear them, if they want. Its actually good!

This helps them to identify with the military and have affinity with them and think of soldiers as other people too, not just someone out there in uniform.

You don't believe me...

Look at the gangster fashion trend, it galmourizes gangsters and lets kids have someking of identification with them even though they are not.

And yes I do think this gangster wanna-be crap is really stupid.

If something like a fashion trend can be for something bad, why not something good.

See, this shows the point that people can rock that stuff and still have respect, even massive respect, for the armed services.

You don't even know what a 'gangster' is. You're going by what you see on TV. I grew up in the projects, and although I never got into it, I know most people turn to the crime side because they feel its the only way out. It kind of puts that impression on you, that you can't get out. You can never do anything, you never have any money, and to some kid's they're never told they can actually be something in life.

I agree though, I think people trying to be 'gangster' because they think it's cool/to fit in, is pretty damn stupid. It shouldn't be glorified. It's a bad life that some people feel they need to turn to.

If it's the fake camo then I don't give a rats @$$. But if it's the real stuff with the patches and all then it ercks me a bit. Unless it belonged to someone in their family who served. Yeah, the whole "I'm a 'gansta', homie" is getting really old really really fast. Definitely if you go to a high school that is located in a middle school in the ghettos. At least 99% of the kids at the middle school are "gansters" and really need a reality check. Or a busted nose. My bus is the bus from hell (that's putting it as a euphemism. no joke). Besides, who wants to talk ignorance? The reply I get the most "I'm represintin my heritage, dog" On the opposite end of the spectrum I see.

Yes, but did they ever wear camo?
