Ummm...they aren't. Any gals saying this must be very very young and only have experienced the baggy, long-falling-off-the-@ss shorts look.

People on here talk about what people should wear as if it were some concrete rule with a logical reason behind it, rather than just a fashion that changes over time.

Not long ago, men routinely wore shorts that ended above the knee, and nobody was bothered by it. I think it's pretty strange that anybody would think there's something actually wrong with a man exposing, say, 1/3 of the top half of his leg. And heaven forbid if he has hair on his legs. Who can imagine that?

As I said, there are some REALLY weird comments in this thread.
Yep. Totally agree.

There's just something very awkward about you thinking that.

My uncle lives in Florida, he is probably in his 70's, wears shorts all the time.... Florida- Hot- Humid= shorts. What is so strange about that???
Brooklyn NY, Summer- Hot- Humid = men wear shorts....Whats the problem...

threads like this really make me laugh, because it tells me that Americans really do have the stupidest hangups about the male body........
Gotta be the young goobers that think this...it doesn't even make sense to me.
