Um, thanks, I think! ;)

I actually noticed this trend a few years ago, but didn't realize it had a name back then. I used to subscribe to Maxim magazine and I noticed a disturbing trend of hair dye products (Maxim brand, no less), low-rise jeans for men, and several other "warning" signs. I guess they were way ahead of the curve. Or my curve, at any rate.

It was fun to research and write, though I swear I didn't try out any of the products!
