Grown-ups: Think back on your own teen years
I don't see what all the schools and parents are complaining about when kids sag their pants. The grown-ups say they look like bell bottoms, so I'll bet you wore bell bottoms, also. They say it looks stupid. To the people who sag, it looks just fine.
I'd like the grown-ups reading this letter to think back on their teenage years. I'll bet you wore something your parents called stupid, but it didn't look stupid to the other people who wore that something. To all the grown-ups who think sagging is dumb: "Bah!" Just think back on yourself.
I understand when kids get in trouble for wearing obscene clothes, but sagging is hardly obscene.
