"i deleted the comment because there was simple quotation marks that were missed out when i made the post. so instead of continuing the mass hysteria (lol) about clothing i stopped it there.

"Right? Plus that's the kind of outlook that makes me feel really uncomfortable taking my hoodie off to hoop outside in a tank top & shorts or something. :/ Exposed arms make for easier chest/shoulder hooping, and exposed legs are my…"
