Devil's advocate here. I used to greatly dislike people like those in the picture, but then I realized that I had no reason
They look fashionable for THEIR era (you have to admit the girls at least, look attractive... otherwise you wouldn't give two ***** about them), they do what they like, and they [mostly] don't intrude upon my own territory just like I don't intrude upon theirs. Point is, get a life, do what you want as long as it isn't offensive to other people (like being racist or rude or smelling really bad in public), and let others do the same. Otherwise you might come off as a jealous cunt with no life.

I give you all of my thumbs. I personally was getting sick of these swag posts. Not everyone who says they have swag is a complete cunt or 			********		. I personally wear snapbacks cause I like them. Same thing goes for fedoras. Not everyone who wears them is a euphoric friendzoned brony. It's funny how people make stereotypes and then get offended when they're stereotyped.

yeah, people like to put these people down but in reality the people in this picture are not as stupid as everyone on FJ seems to think. They like to make jokes about what others think about their lifestyle, which are often misconstrued as their actual opinions. 99.9% of the time someone dressed like this says yolo, they aren't seriou. They know yolo and swag are a joke like everyone else.

Jesus christ, grow some balls and ******* hate something. Just hate it for no ******* reason, just hate it instinctively. Irrational hate is what makes us human
#122 to #74 - anon (10/03/2013) [-]
Every generation has a period where the previous generations look at whats new to look down upon it. I like to dress this type of way and don't really see what all the fuss is about. It's like people are trying to build barriers against others for clothing... i'm glad some of us decided to mature from that junior high type of behavior. Judge people by there actions rather then what they look like, you'd be surprised.
#76 to #13 - anon (10/03/2013) [-]
in my experience, those kids are the most disrespectful sh*ts ive ever known.....
they dont give two sh*ts about education and give teachers hell on a daily basis. i dont know a single one of them thats going anywhere in life.
they definitely intrude upon peoples territory; they single out and pick on random kids for no reason. one kid i know killed himself over it
their entertainment is spending their mommys welfare money on drugs and alcohol and then going out to vandalize anything they can, "cuz you only yolo once!!!1!!1"
tragic car accident on the news where 3 teens drinking and driving killed themselves along with innocent people in the other car? you can bet it was them
sources: used to be "in" with the crowd,then after some of them went to jail for rape,grand theft auto,drug dealing,robbing houses, and - wait for it- f***ing skinning the neighborhoods cats alive,i realized i didnt wanna be around these people.

This is how I've always felt about "swag."
So far, I've heard NO ONE use "swag" as an actual trait.
People in my highschool just use it as a joke.

Honestly, when people just sit behind their computers all day ripping on people it really shows that they got no swag, and they just jealous cause they ain't yolo.
#97 to #13 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
Okay, but have you considered the fact that they aren't harmless. Honestly, how do you expect the coming generations to be of any worth, mentally anyways, if these are going to be the people raising them and don't give me the whole "It's not my problem because it does not directly affect me" crap. Yes, it is your problem because your future generation will be subjected to these kind of people and their offspring and one day everyone will turn into a member of the "BRAINLESS SWAG ZOMBIE ARMY" or whatever it'll be called in the future. I don't know about you but I can not allow that to happen. This may be just my opinion but I say "the learning starts NOW". As far as fashion is concerned I don't care if you want to walk around naked or with six layers on as long as your a mediocrely good human being and a contributing member of society you're good in my book.
Now, as far as the word is concerned, personally I just find it funny and yell it out loud when ever I'm about to try something new or out of my routine I'm always like " **** IT, YOLO, SWAG" and yes I did copy that from somewhere. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I have no problem with the word, it's the ideology that comes with it that I disagree with.
User avatar #129 to #97 - dtox (10/03/2013) [-]
You need to really compare that way of thinking with those who have thought along the same lines in the past.

Before I continue, lets just say that not all the people who dress like those depicted in the post are all a bunch of degenerate, uncontrollable nobodies who like to drink/party themselves to death and have enough sex to be riddled with STDs.

what we're seeing is, as stated by nebuchadnezzaurus, a change in style and accepted dress code. This is no different to what people have been doing for decades, including the characteristic of men having long hair (where some people, including my grandmother, thought it was a sign of degeneracy and disrespect).

That's really all that's happening here, styles are changing and people who were used to the older styles are acting cynical towards the new, and are creating negative connotations through their pessimism.

Not that the criticism involved is entirely unjustified, there are plenty of questionable individuals who exemplify these emerging trends. it's just that it's wrong to assume that ALL the people who follow the trend are bad, and that the trend itself will somehow impose on your own views and morals in a way that's beyond your control.
User avatar #173 to #129 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
Look I would be an idiot if I automatically assumed that 100% of these kids were douchenozzles just because they were wearing something that I don't like or I disagree with and I'm not saying that, the problem I have is this stupid mentality that comes with the extremely influential lifestyle that they have chosen. I do get that this has happened before and the style just changes from generation to generation but in this age where some of the most horrific things in the world are as easily available to kids as Crayons, you have to admit that this time around it's a bit different and gonna be honest here, it scares the **** outta me.

User avatar #175 to #118 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
I get that but this time I believe it's different the hippies were talking about peace but kids these days have this ******** mentality of making money fast, commercial and materialistic existences that it just ends up being scary.
User avatar #110 to #97 - nebuchadnezzaurus (10/03/2013) [-]
I agree. Bashing these types of people left and right on the internet isn't going to "help" them, but maybe becoming friends with them and/or setting positive example will. That's assuming they need "help", since thinking that means thinking pretty highly of one's own self.
User avatar #113 to #110 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
No....I don't think it has anything to do with thinking highly of oneself but the fact that the "Swag Culture" comes with this ideology of stupidity/self-entitement being okay just makes you want to do something about it. Honestly I actually have no problem with the look or the lingo I just have the problem with the "Hey Kanye can I send you nudes # ************** " mentality.

you make the mistake of assuming that the kids in this pic will be raising kids.

User avatar #174 to #146 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
I understand your point of view but I believe that in this day and age with such easy access to some of the most horrific things in the world, especially for kids, this time around it's a bit different. The lifestyle that they've chosen or chosen to copy at least is so highly influenced by easy money idiotic pseudo celebrities that it just ends up being scary.

User avatar #181 to #177 - realreality (10/03/2013) [-]
I said that I understand that this vicious circle of the older generation not understanding the newer generations music, fashion etc has been going on forever but what I'm trying to convey to you is that "THIS TIME IT'S DIFFERENT". Kids these days have easy access to some really harmful things whether it be drugs, a certain lifestyle or whatever, are you with me up till now ?? Okay, good. I also said that the pseudo celebrity lifestyles that they've chosen to follow are not lifestyles that are at all stable or are at all sustainable and what will happen when reality finally strikes is something that I don't know but that's the thing that scares the **** out of me? Do you get it now or should I elaborate some more ?

Good point. That's a damn good point. But their entire lifestyle is one of ignorance and reproduction. I don't like them filling the world with ignorant people, because ignorant people are very likely to "intrude upon my territory."

Of course, they might not like me reproducing with my kind either. Tolerance is good.

I would say Carpe Diem would be a more effective phrase in encouraging people to do something, but then again, most YOLO swaggots wouldn't know what that meant anyway.
And age has nothing to do with a level of intelligence. We lose IQ points as we become older. If anything, a teenager should be more knowledgeable than "older,wiser people".

>And age has nothing to do with a level of intelligence. We lose IQ points as we become older. If anything, a teenager should be more knowledgeable than "older,wiser people"
have you considered that years of education may play a big role in turning people into scholars, scientists, historians and mathematicians? or are you under the assumption that people are born scholars, scientists, historians and mathematicians and then they lose their knowledge and wisdom as they age?

No, "being fashionable and socially interactive with people who share their same fashion sense and interests" is not a bad thing.
Being obnoxious, rude, irresponsible, superficial, uncultured, unwilling to learn, self-important et caetera is a bad thing.
I have nothing against the way they dress or the music they listen to, and as you said, "as long as they arent in my way then i dont really care 99% of the time".
But when they do get in my way, which they do quite often, I find myself facing people that combine several of the negative qualities I have just mentioned.
You see, "generalizing is stupid" (paradox), but inductive reasoning is quite effective, if supported by extensive proof.
And we have lotsa that.

There is no reason to hate someone if they're nice and use stuff like "Swag" from time to time, but when 95% of them are loud, inconsiderate assholes who think they can take anyone on in a fight, it's not really that bad to hate the group altogether.
