I posted this up in the "Things I hate most" thread, but I wanted to see what you guys thought. These people just make me irritated.

Currently, the gangster types are calling each other their fellow "soljah" and sporting *extremely* glossy dogtags (the kind you buy at the mall) with gang signs/group names/pictures engraved in them. Oh, and everyone's beginning to sport every camo you can buy from fubu to Abercrombie. It's getting ridiculous, and it's spreading like the plague.

What do you guys think?

Terrible, I can't believe Abercrombie has lowered thier standards that low. I hate it when kids wear camo to school. Same thing as with the so called "gangstas" who use military paraphernalia and terminology to further thier ridiculous act.

Hmmm......it's so sad, people can't even honor the American Military Uniform. I've seen girls wearing field jackets over swim bikinis at the pool. So sad..........................

The only people who should be able to wear camo to schools are people who are in Junior military groups (in the for of BDU's, and only if the instructers say it's okay), active military (Again, BDU's), or the instructors (For the third go, BDU's).

Also, if you're going to wear dog tags, wear real dog tags. My friend wears his dads old ones(in fact, he can recite the whole thing by heart).

It angers me also. I see it and want to yell at them that if they are going to wear camo, wear the uniform like it should. Its not more "gangstas" but more of the punks in my school. I only wear camoflague in 3 instances: Hunting, Paintball, Camping due to their practicality.

Only times I wear my cammies are paintballing, at Drills when prescribed, or whenever I'm doing work in the backwoods (pants only) because I don't really have anything else for that kind of yardwork and they were made to hold up against the elements.

I just hope it's a trend that doesn't stick around much longer. I could, however, sackride the trend and take'm all out with my fashion savviness....but yea, no.

Here it's really effecting all groups. The punks here still wear skate and black clothes, but the preppy people have adopted subdued wood-type patterns. Even the sports teams got matching shirts in camo. Now, the gangsters on the other hand, have decided to use the standard pattern with outrageous shades of pink, blue, red, etc.

LMAO
oh i just had a memory of the Ali G movie, where all the "brothas" turned up and each and everyone of them had a different camo style and then they couldn't start the car or something so they formed a human chain and the electric current passed through them and they did that dance move. oh lol that was a priceless moment.

why is it you are offended at people wearing camo? is it because it is part of military unifrom and you see them as using it when they dont deserve it as direspecting the uniform?its just clothing. its the patch, the special colored beret, the tab, whatever that you should be worried about people copying, not something that can be so easily mass produced

They're articles of clothing. Get over it.

I remember watching Method and Red one time where one of them was wearing a Marine Blues Jacket(I almost didn't recognize it for all the alterations). I wanted to laugh out loud because they probably didn't even know what they were wearing. I wouldn't take it too seriously.
