YOUR TURN: The saggy pants controversy

The "Your Turn" mail box was sagging this week, under the weight of all the mail about saggy pants.

Lots of people hate them, some people are OK with them, and some people think the debate about saggy pants is a big waste of time. Most of our mail came from people who don't like them, like Joyce Savage.

In her words:

"It shows a lack of respect for self, and for anyone else the saggy pants wearer comes in contact with. Sure there are fads or styles for every generation, but does that make it appropriate for young men and women to demean themselves.  What is the point in letting the pants sag and then you see them holding them up with their hands? Does this generation want to be remembered as the one that made a significant contribution or as the generation of people with saggy pants who walked around with their undergarments and derrieres exposed?"

That's Joyce Savage's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
