"So okay, I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and we're supposed to swoon? I don't think so!" Cher, Clueless
I used to think guys looked bad back when I was trying to find one in the 90s and they wore clothing 4 sizes too large and silly backwards hats. And then Mike and I went to the mall on a Friday night. The place where teenage boys go to be seen.
Oh my gosh, do teenage boys ever look revolting these days. Really, truly disgusting. I have a hard time not staring at them. They wear the tightest of tight pants from the ankle up to their droopy bottoms. I ask you, does anyone want to know that much about a 14-year-old boy's anatomy? And then they have the most ridiculous hair cuts that make the Beegees 70s hair look positively charming. It's clear they've spent far too much time petting their greasy comb-overs.
Shouldn't teen pregnancies be way down? Do girls actually want to kiss these things? Girls also are suffering from the current fashion trends, but they at least have more natural beauty so if they wear ugly clothes and get bad haircuts, they're not revolting, if not quite passable.
I think I'm becoming an old, outdated fuddy duddy. (I do still think Cher's yellow plaid miniskirt suit from Clueless is the cutest thing, if that's any indication.) All I know is I'm so glad I'm not currently looking for a boyfriend in this sad fashion time or raising a young boy in it.
