What does it mean to drop your GS?

To "drop your g's" means to not pronounce the letter g at the end of words. For example, instead of saying "what are you doing?" a person who drops her g's would say "what are you doin' ?" Ciao.

Why do some people not pronounce GS?

T-glottalization tends to be more noticeable when it happens in the middle of a word. Notice that the T is always dropped on the non-stressed syllable in a word. If you were fully pronouncing the T's in those words, your tongue would touch the roof of your mouth and the T-sound would pop out with a puff of air.
