I will be attending a few classes at a local junior college prior to transferring to a university. I'd like to use a messenger bag as opposed to a backpack to carry my stuff. But I'm afraid of the "he's wearing a purse" stereotype. Do you guys think it is taboo to use a messenger bag on the college campus (the junior college specifically)? Or is it more commonplace than I think? I've heard others recommend a portfolio instead of any bag, but when I transfer to the university and need to start carrying more stuff (e.g. a laptop), a messenger bag/backpack may be necessary, so I thought I'd buy now. If it matters, I was planning to buy a messenger bag from Unlucky.
