It depends.  If you feel a rosary represents something close to you, then wear it.  If you're wearing it because it looks cool, or because everybody else is wearing it, then I think it's an abomination to wear it like that, and it is disrespectful, yup.  Same thing with people that wear a cross on their neck and then go around acting like idiots, it's disrespectful.

I am Catholic and I think that wearing rosaries is disrespectful.

I agree with what Trauma said. If you are wearing it for the right reasons, then don't worry about what others are saying. If you are wearing it to look cool, then thats just retarded.

^^ That's a smart decision, I comend you for even caring enough to think about whether you should wear it or not.
