I’m proud to say I grew up in the ’90s. A lot of cool shit happened back then. Slap bracelets were invented, chatting online became a “thing,” and Titanic hit theaters and made every girl fall hopelessly in love with Leonardo DiCaprio. Despite its awesomeness, a lot happened back in the ’90s that I’m happy to say didn’t continue into the 2000s. Here are 15 things that were cool back then but would NEVER be acceptable today.

1. Boys who wear clothes like this.
