Default Crab bad stuff

Last night when I was playing I was the Witch class from the Pathfinder expansion. Another player had armor on, as well as the kneepads of allure. I used the witch's hex ability to inflict the "bad stuff" from Crabs, which states that they lose their armor as well as any items worn below the waist. This started a debate that the kneepads being slotless are in fact not worn, but simply carried with you and can still function. I believe that they are very obviously worn/equip and that the "bad stuff" from Crabs would cause them to be discarded.

As a follow up, this would imply that if someone managed to wear all of these things, that the crabs could simultaneously get rid of: Armor, footwear, kneepads of allure, codpieces, pantyhose of giant's strength, spiky knees, and any other manor of slotless belts or whatever that would obviously need to be worn below the waist, correct?

They would lose the Kneepads -- in fact, the Kneepads and the Spiky Knees are why the Crabs have the Bad Stuff they do.

How about the foot mounted mace? Technically that is "worn below the waist" as well.

Yes, that counts.

a. If a player is carrying (but not using) an Armor, do they have to lose it as per Crabs bad stuff?
b. If a player is carrying (but not using) any Item that should be worn below the waist, do they have to lose it as per Crabs bad stuff?
