Peeling pants or that common word sagging has been a route of almost every youth ,may it be students or musicians or just that young man that  does his daily activities,almost every youth admire this style and yet they don't know the cornerstone.

Sagging is a manner of wearing trousers (slacks, shorts, pants or jeans) below the waist, revealing much of the underwear. Sagging is predominantly a male fashion though we have also seen some beautiful women dropping them pants,do we also call that sagging?

We have seen some big icons in movie and music industry addressing this fashion,movie directors like Tyler Perry have tried to criticize this style but without luck the style picked more allies, i being one of them falling in a group of saggers.

Sagging has acted as one of the most disrespectful fashion ,many parents cant bare seeing their young boys back pockets on the floor,it has been war between youth and parents and this practice has been ridiculed in music videos. First, in the 1996 song Back Pockets on the Floor performed by The Green Brothers of Highland Park, Michigan and Another song in 2007 by Dewayne Brown of Dallas, Texas entitled Pull Your Pants Up has a similar message

President Obama himself criticizes people who practice sagging,he appeared on MTV and stated that laws banning the practice of wearing low-slung pants that expose one's underwear were "a waste of time". However, he did follow that up with the statement: "Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What's wrong with that? Come on. Some people might not want to see your underwear. I’m one of them.

Today i pass by street and see young kids peeling their pants ,the more you try telling them how disrespectful it is all they say is "SWAG" ..last time i checked swag is not showing your underwear or butts..

Women's wearing of low-rise jeans to reveal their G-string underwear (the "whale tail") is not generally considered sagging
Sagging has sexual connotations in prison ("Those who pulled their pants down the lowest and showed their behind a little more raw, that was an invitation").

According to Greg Mathis, sagging was adopted from the United States prison system where belts are prohibited. Belts are sometimes prohibited to keep prisoners from using them as weapons or in committing suicide by hanging themselves.The style was later popularized by hip-hop artists in the 1990s.It has since become a symbol of freedom and cultural awareness among some youths or a symbol of their rejection of the values of mainstream society.

Prohibiting sagging is something that is inevitable,its a point of us youths educating one another,it personally took me a while to abandon sagging but i successful manage.Showing your underwear to the public isn't the best thing,no one wishes to see whats under your trousers and moreover others don't dress them clean ,u can imagine how bad you can irritate the public..Don't call it swag because its nothing compared to swag unless inviting some people to buy your butts its swag..and maybe you all need help we can donate and get belts for every saggers..Manners ...Manners...where is the discipline..its immodest..

I understand sagging is just that other change to the world that many will protest but later it will be accepted ..yeah right..but over doing it whacks it down ..Stop or don't over do it..
