Bow ties are disturbing

Tonight I decided I need a good rant. Though there are many topics I could go off on I decide on something fashion related. Now I'm no trendsetter nor do I usually go out on a limb to stretch the boundaries, so I'm probably a source that the industry will not be consulting. But I was walking the mall today and I noticed a guy he wasn't a knock out or even funky looking. What drew me to notice him was his bow tie. I don't no what is but I just can't take people in bow ties seriously. They just look like a strange clown or something it's hard to describe, I mentally find those that sport these to be, um weird.
Maybe it's just me but when I see a gentleman in other than a tux wearing one I just want to yell "protect your children there is a molester near by!" It just send shivers up my spine. Living here in the South I see them more often than any where else that I have lived. It's not just an older gentleman that I see wearing one, which I some what expect, but I see guys in there 30's wearing them.
But who wears these? Stereotypically I expect to see grandfatherly figure, Republicans, Lawyers, geeks and clowns all wearing one. Okay enough of that, sorry Orville Redenbacher they are just plain weird.

I'm soo with you on this. They are rather odd, perhaps a little scary! I speak as one that did go through a bit of a bow tie season in my youth! It was something us English boys did back then - thank god it only lasted a couple of months!

I'll agree. They are just... strange compared to a regular tie. Although even more silly are those bolo ties.

I wore a bow tie to the Salt Lake City Pride Fest this past weekend.
There's nothing wrong at all with bow ties.
I specifically wear them because most guys don't.
Call me a geek or whatever (yeah, I'm a programmer...) but I love bow ties.

Besides, the 11th Doctor wears a bow tie ;-P
