A very shocking thing that I found about jail rape
YOU know the trend where guys like to wear their pants down really low. Well, I just found out today that the root of this fashion came from jail rape.
In jail, there is a hierarchy. The lowest members of the hierarchy are used as fuck sticks, basically designated pass-around bottoms that anyone above them can assault at any time, and to make these individuals visible, they were forced to wear their pants down to show their bottoms.
When these people came out of jail, the habit stuck and people started imitating them. And that's how the fashion came to be.
Everyone already knows this.
Now, isn't that special!
OP have you been living under a rock for the past two decades?
they are called punks.
I told all the "thugs" I saw, and they immediately pulled them up and began speaking with british accents and perfect grammar.
Um no, dumbasses. You can't have a belt in prison it could be used as a weapon or to kill yourself. Well fitting pants aren't exactly a priority for the Prison Industrial Complex and due to our fat fuck population, there are a lot more big pants in jail. So yes, the trend may have come from jail or it might have been a backlash against the tight jeans that were in style the cycle before. We're going back to tight pants again.
R6 is not nearly as smart as she thinks she is.
The pants in jail have elastic waist bands, R6.
R6 = an ignorant kid who just realized he had been advertising himself as a punk bottom boy because he was blindly following some fashion trend set by other uneducated people who look and act stupid and that educated and affluent people have been laughing at them behind their backs this whole time and is now trying to spin it into soemthing its not.
sorry, prison bottom. Guess there was some unconscious reason you were drawn to that look.
Oh and even more shocking, OP- it's not even true.
I respectfully disagree.
The low-hanging pants trend started in the late-eighties when the 'heroin-chic' look took off. Most junkies lose a lot of weight and are unkempt, so they are always wearing oversized, dirty clothes.
Kids thought the drug culture was cool, and copied the style.
Who the fuck wants to look like a dirty junkie? R6 is the one that is right.

Do you have to apply for this position?
Actually r7 she is, at least on this topic.
Perhaps even more damning is the fact that R6 is boring.
Read the Snopes links, bozos. R6 is correct.
Please, OP, if you get any more shocking e-mails, be sure to start a new thread about them. I'm certain DL counts for one of the twenty forwards you must do to watch something AMAZING happen.
Good work, Sherman. Once again this installment of the Wayback Machine has been informative and accurate.
When I hear "fuck stick" I don't think of a bottom.
R6 for the win! Morons with your sick prison rape fantasies.
Who cares where it originated, just as long as they keep dressing that way. Anything to give me a cheap thrill.
I'd like to see this info in mainstream media and the reaction from circles where low pants still are a trend.
I am SHOCKED, I tell you: SHOCKED!
"The low-hanging pants trend started in the late-eighties when the 'heroin-chic' look took off. Most junkies lose a lot of weight and are unkempt, so they are always wearing oversized, dirty clothes."
You couldn't be more wrong. Young black lower-income men are/were not susceptible to high-end fashion trends from glossy magazines aimed at white women.
And the heroin chic look you reference never favored "baggy" anything. it was all emaciated bitches in tight child-size clothing.
Additionally that trend didn't come into vogue until close to the mid-90s.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
