    I never understood it,

    but I definitely think it's the universal sign that you love it up the booty hole. Why else would you have it so readily accessible? Forgetting your belt is one thing but doing it intentionally is just crazy. Please tell me which respectable men do that? .... Right, none. Note...

    It comes from prison.

    ..males that were willing to engage in intercourse with others sagged their pants as a way to say they were 'willing' to have sex with the other inmates...it was used so guards wouldn't find out...i made this sound smart I'm proud of myself

    It's damn embarrassing to see a young guy with

    his pants hanging down and his underwear peeking out. It's a disgusting view to be honest. I want to yell " Pull up your damn pants!". I don't know who started this stupid trend? Was it like " oh the ladies flaunt their cleavage so we'll flaunt our butt crack!" ? Seriously who...

    To the blokes that think it's cool

    and fashionable to have your pants hanging down your arse. Did you know that wearing your pants the same way in prison is a secret code saying that you are available for sexual favours requested by other inmates.

    What makes men think they look cool

    or good showing their ***??? Nevertheless holding on to their private area to hold their sagging pants??? Oh, and BTW, FYI, the belt isn't made to be wrapped around the knees...(((bless your heart))). It goes around the waist.

    I think that sagging is the most ridiculous

    thing I have ever seen. I've heard that it was started in prison by homosexuals that wanted to let the other guys know that they were available for sex.Seriously?! What is with people these days anyway? Do you really want to copy a prison ritual out on the streets in public...

    I totally agree!! I have

    such an urge to pull down peoples pants when I see them sag, especially when they are wearing a belt. It like "My dude, you want to pull up your pants? Like NOW!! Please!"I know girls sag too, but I mostly see the guys.

    Back in the good ol' 90s

    when I was in junior high and high school (1990-1995), my peers wore sagging jeans five sizes too big. I thought that crap was hot! It was rebellious! Twenty years later, when I see the sons of my peers sag in skinny jeans, I wonder do they know it will be impossible for them to...

    Sagging. Oh why do people sag?

    In prison that means you want someone to pOUND YOUR *** TILL YOUR SWORE. Anyway, I don't think a lot of boys don't want that. Donate a dime and maybe..one day we can buy these people belts

    To the people who view sagging

    as a way of making themselves seem like they deserve respect, they seem to forget something. They're at a tactical disadvantage. Let's say they come under fire from an opposing tribal acting subhuman. They will have a hard time running. They become easy food to deranged...
