Does anyone else here know the origin of sagging and what it signifies?
It started in the California prisons in the late seventies.
The more powerful inmates forced weaker inmates to provide sex for them.
They made them wear their pants at half mast so they could hit it quick.
What I can't understand is, why in the Hell anyone would make the "I'm everybody's weak-assed bitch" signal a fashion statement.
I would never "sag".

it is true that sagging your pants relates to prison, that's exactly where it started. it was/is the way that male prisoners let each other know that they're willing to have sex without literally saying it aloud and risk feeling homosexual (which they are). I assume that with the many rappers in jail, when some of them finally got out they kept wearing their pants that way and impressionable idiots looked at them and thought that they were being fashionable so they followed them. some people will just follow anything that they see celebs doing.0
