The word was used to say he's not taking things seriously, and in doing so being disrespectful. This word was something I learned when a movie critic was describing Ryan Reynolds' character Dead Pool, I feel that the majority of people use the word colloquially in the way I did above.
Your point on my word usage overall is right on the money. Earlier in the thread someone took offense to a metaphor I made in regards to their use of aren't instead of are [double negative]. The metaphor was used to illustrate how I could be pedantic in my writing, but I chose not to be. Similarly, in my clothing, I may use items that stand out, but overall I'm not overly rule bound by what I might pair one item or another with. Unfortunately for the person who took offense, they missed this point, and went on to criticize my writing pedantically, somewhat comically if the person realized what really was intended.

I actually don't ask for opinions on the way the pictures look, I just post the pictures and receive criticism. Same with the way I talk. Seems analogous to a black person being singled out and told that the way they dress isn't appropriate, and they way they talk isn't appropriate. "You using big words boy. You think you're smarter than me?" I know it's not the same, as it's probably closer to how people are treated when they're new in the military or a fraternity.
Of course, I understand that people have a difference of opinion, I've stated as much many times. This point you make is perfect -- when did I ask for advice on any of my fit pictures? Believe hazing is different than criticism.
