I recently learned that skinny jeans are no longer cool.

I know what you're thinking, when where they EVER?

Well, that's just your opinion, man.

But get this, Generation Z is back to wearing those baggy mom jeans.

I'm sorry... I'm not about that life. Now I'll have to hoard skinny jeans before they disappear from the market entirely.

Now some people wouldn't be caught dead wearing them—opinions are strong and firmly held. We heard more after Redditor CharmingWitty asked the online community:

"What is a fashion trend that you can't stand?"

"I hate that..."

"I hate that a few influencers decided to wear Champion and Carhartt clothes and now they're so expensive."


This is truly wild to hear – it was considered super cheap clothing when I was growing up. You didn't exactly brag about it.

"Expensive clothes..."

"Expensive clothes that look like cheap clothes as if the rich who can afford them are mocking poor people."


In the words of Dolly Parton: it takes a lot of money to look this cheap!

"Any incredibly short-lived trend..."

"Any incredibly short-lived trend that people end up throwing out in one season. SO wasteful. I only buy things that I’m happy to continue using regardless of changing fads."


Wasteful is right. This is why I try to buy things that will last – it's more expensive, a true investment, but it's worth it.

"That annoyingly popular..."

"That annoyingly popular tiktok hairdo. The one where guys with typically straight hair throw a bunch of product in it to make it look like uncooked ramen noodles."


I wonder what Justin Timberlake's thoughts on this trend are. He walked so these kids could run.

"Cropped tops..."

"Cropped tops that look like normal length tops in store. Why is it so difficult to find shirts that go past the bellybutton?"


The frustration is real! Many women complain about this.

"My mom..."

"My mom has to have the Michael Kors MK logo on almost everything she wears. Eyeglasses, shirt, jacket, pants, boots, purse, phone case (all for the same outfit). She's a walking billboard for MK. Sorry mom, love you but nobody is impressed."


Yeah, I think the majority of people would agree that logos are pretty tacky.

"They put them everywhere now..."

"Ruffles on clothes. They put it everywhere now and sometimes it's fine but most of the time... Whyyyy?"


I think ruffles don't look great. Sue me. The only ruffles I want anywhere near me are potato chips.

"I don't know..."

"I don't know if it's gotten beyond NZ, but here a lot of young guys are wearing matching shorts and shirts with fruit prints on them, I see it all the time, it's so bizzare. Pineapple has been especially popular this season."


Going to be honest here... I am not a fan of fruit patterns. But you should come out to Bushwick sometime. You'll find them everywhere.

"How it's impossible..."

"How it's impossible to find women's shorts that cover more than the bare essentials. At least it gives me an excuse to go into the men's section with long shirts and big pockets."


Stores geared to hiking and camping usually have shorts that are mid thigh or longer length. They also have decent pockets! Costco carries longer shorts seasonally.

"Cut outs in every dress..."

"Cut outs in every dress and crops everywhere! Like just let me buy something that covers up all my pudgy belly."


The horror. It doesn't have to be this way. Revolt?

I'm so glad I'm a nobody – that means I don't have to try to look like somebody. Wear what makes you comfortable. Everyone has their own tastes, some more expensive than others. Just don't judge.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
