"Kid’s so god damn nuts I’ll forgive him for wearing his sister’s pants"

One of my favorite things in the world is to hear what people from states that don't border a major body of water think of cool kid culture.  For example, one of my buddies from the Flagstaff AZ area was up here this weekend so, naturally, I took him by Dolores Park:

“I can't believe how many guys wear women's pants and ride track bikes.”

(laughing) “They aren't women's pants.”

“Really?  I thought that was the hipster thing?  Go into the women's section and find the tightest fitting jeans possible.”

“No, those are 'skinnies' and companies make men's styles.”

“That's fucked.”

Anyways, this morning I see that choice quote from Big Johnny, another guy from Flagstaff, on Drunk Cyclist talking about some BMXbro doing 'sick shit' without brakes.  So, apparently based on my sample of 2 people, everyone in Flagstaff thinks the Mission is full of cross-dressers.  Also, watch the video.  Wait until the billboard to house to street shot.  Fucking nuts.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for sharing what your friend from Flagstaff, AZ thinks of the Mission.


Now I’m not saying you’re wrong, but I have seen more men than women shopping in the Women’s Pants section of the Mission/Van Ness Goodwill.

When it comes down to it, the only real difference between men and women’s jeans is the amount of ball space.
