-Getting baked at a tanning salon, then bleaching your hair. ("I hear in Cosmo that guys like tan girls, and they like blondes, so I just decided to do both! *teee heee*")
-Okay Tanning Salon in general. But some people have their reasons.
-Wearing plain ol' shirts that say "abercrmombie". Paying 10x the price for a t-shirt with a popular name screams "gullible" to me.
(Shoot. I think I'm guilty of that last one... I didn't buy it new, I swear!)
-Like, I'm not one to judge, but there seems to be a common theme these days: Duck Face, peace signs, looking unintelligent, and trying to mimic Snooki or Manaj as closely as possible. I mean, girls should dress how they choose, but this trend is obviously not about attracting men.
-Fake Geeks/Gamers. It's cool that "geek chic" is in. Guys dream of girls who are *actually* interested in topics many girls see as uninteresting or "childish". But faking it doesn't cut it. You gotta be a real Trekkie or Whovian, or something will smell fishy. It feels more like being mocked or patronized to me.
-I would say Skinny Jeans, but I don't mind them. I mean girls can wear whatever guys wear, might as well have at least one article of clothing that goes the other way. (Okay, two. Let's bring back kilts, and/or popularize men's skirts.)
-Fake Hipster glasses. My eyes got screwed up from reading, music, programming, and electronics. Glasses were faux pas for years. Now that we're in the spotlight, you don't get to take it. Capisci?
-Everything/anything to do with prisons, gangs, etc. I don't know what happened in the 80's/90's when prisons and gangs became glamorous. Listen to "ganger's paradise". Coolio was not happy with this trend. It's more than a style problem. It's a social problem.
I read about issues in south London. link Girls wanted to be able to "brag" about their boyfriends' prison sentences for "bold" stuff like murder and violence, rather than "neeks" who weren't willing to kill. Intimate partner violence quickly rose. I wonder why.
But that's enough of my lecture. You guys know: I ALWAYS have a rant to spew.
