British & Commonwealth slang): Remove someone's trousers by force to humiliate him, a popular practice among teenage boys as an initiation rite or a punishment for someone who has made himself unpopular. Victims are almost always male as detrousering can be regarded as symbolic emasculation. Traditionally most debaggings were carried out by males, but the presence of girls as onlookers or participants adds to the humiliation, and evidence suggests an ncreasing tendancy for girls to take the law, and the trousers, into their own hands. After the victim's trousers are removed they may be returned to him, thrown around while he tries to retrieve them, or placed in an inaccessible or public place.
(1) New boys are always debagged in their first week.
(2) The older girls were well aware of the effectiveness of debagging in dealing with arrogant boys.
