Read this in the Daily Mail..scary. I am the only one who didn't know about this ??:

They are thin, plastic bracelets, the kind of innocent-looking friendship bands that schoolgirls like to wear.
Available in a variety of colours and cheap enough to be bought with pocket money, they have become an overnight sensation in primary school playgrounds across the country.
But it is their name that causes alarm bells to ring: Shag-bands. And they are worn by children far too young to truly understand what that crude term means.

I reckon they should ban the things that cause more kids to have sex than anything else.

These bands are nothing.

lol people need to stop reading too much into this if the bands or made or sold in another country the meening may be different all together also if kids are too young to know what it meens then surley they havent lost there innocence daily mail readers getting up in arms about any negative stuff they print lol please read up on things first before passing missinformed information on to the general public. Long live the daily sport for its nonsense news reporting that no one takes seriously

not singling you out but you are bothered by this yet have a provocative profile pic that i bet your kids have seen while you haave been on comp

Those are like soo last year like totally.

As i said on the previous thread, its harmless, at my school they were around in 1997 and no one shagged because of them (yet everyone knew them as **** bands). If you read other comments it seems that they go back to the early 90s/80s and no kids **** because of them

+1 I remember these too. The black one was the one that meant **** if you broke it or something along those lines.

I heard about this during the week, it's funny how these little fads start up but it doesn't mean anything....I remember everyone was going mad for acid faces when I was a kid but I didn't even know the meaning of it. lol
#17
The bracelets have been around years but I didn't know they supposed to have any meaning.I imagine Claires etc sell them in big bunches.
#18
These have been going around for years, they used to be out when I was a kid :)

lol i know it isnt a bad photo but if you are the kind of person that moans about these for kids then surely having kids in the house that same person would avoid all sorts to 'protect' there kids lol
also i think you should read my other posts before passing comments buddy:thumbsup:
#21
yeah used to have loads of these when i was at school a good 14 to 16 years ago and seriously they were the latest fashion for a young girl to have but let me tell you we didnt have lads chasing us trying to snap them for any reason. i have seen these recently in my local pound shop and on the packet they are actually called s**g bands but let me tell you they were never called that years ago its just what some idiot has put the myth behind them and named them that to be honest its the people that have made these and put that name behind them that need to be shot. whatever happened to young girls being able to wear these without any meaning behind them it really is a shame young girls cant just have these as acessories without all this stupid meaning it really is ridiculus.

Well don't try and single people out then, which you claimed you were not doing. there is nothing up with the photo, it is a photo of a face. You find it provocative, doesn't mean anybody else does.

I am not interested in reading your other posts, this one stood out, and I thought it was unnecessary.

Looks like a pair of boobs to me Mr internet policeman sir.

So these are embedded with cutting edge Area 51 mind control technology that forces kids to do these things, all for 20p? :shock:

Oh wait no, it's just a stupid cheap plastic bracelet and a Daily Mail story. :roll:

Just give all the kids white ones and spread the rumour that if a white one is snapped you have to punch the nearest boy as hard as possible in the crotch, problem solved.
#28
most kidsbreak them on their own....lol
#29
why should it be alarming now? They've been around for years? I remember girls wearing them in my primary and secondary school and I don't remember boys going round breaking them so they can "****".
#30
Moo moo was saying about this the other day.

Yes remember them about a decade ago in the States so it's been around for awhile xx
#31
We had similar things when i was at school we just used to giggle about them and it didn't do me any harm as long as a fuss isn't made about things it usually goes over kid's heads
