Guys wearing tank tops? - January 27th 2013, 10:24 PM

Yes I already the stereotype of guys wearing tank tops. But with that aside it does raise a question. Is that stereotype true about guys wearing them? And better yet, What are you views of guys wearing tank tops?

Ps. for those who don't know the stereotype, Guys who wear tank tops are douchebags.

I wear "tank tops" or 'under shirts' all the time. I don't think its anything to deal with a 'sterotype' its just how i'm comfortable wearing shirts. During wartime; I would wear a tank top over some underarmor just as another layer to prevent friction.

That's kind of saying that girls that wear "V" necks are sluts.

I live in the desert. Regardless of genitals, if it's hot, sleeves suck, and people stop.wearing them. No measurement of character.

I don't think the stereotype is true as that would be a huge over-generalization. I know guys who wear tank tops that are douchebags, and I know guys who wear them and aren't. So if you like tank tops Jeff, then go flaunt them.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I don't think that it makes a guy a jerk at all. It's all about your personality. Some people will be jerks no matter what they wear! Tank tops look fine on guys.

I personally don't like tank tops that much on guys, but I don't think the stereotype is always correct. Sometimes it is, but not always.

It's true that douchebags wear tank tops but they can also wear shirts, scarves, beanies, shorts, long sleeved shirts, jumpers and jeans. I don't think guys should wear tank tops if they haven't got good arms, but that's just my opinion and they can wear whatever they want. I think stereotypes are stupid and support narrow-mindedness.

I could dwell on my problems... But I'd rather make a milkshake...

I agree with that. Just kidding. But, come on, I live in Australia, tank tops are the way of LIFE over here! With that said, most Aussie's are douchebags because on Australia day an aussie contributed with "we drink, we get smashed, we end up in hospital forgetting what happened." We have been over run by other cultures though and that was the ONLY aussie thing contributed....

But, nah, I know guys who wear tank tops and are cool. It doesn't matter. It's just the person.
