I hate the look of saggy pants, but I hate the way a lot of people dress. But guess what? They have a right to dress how they want to dress. I won't
impose my personal preference of dress on someone else. If you want to look like an idiot, by all means go ahead and look like an idiot. As for it
effecting employment. Who cares, don't hire someone who sags their pants.
But here's the slippery slope. So three inches of underwear is somehow offensive and a threat to the state.
How about the top of a thong sticking out above pants, intentional or not? Sometimes it's a fashion statement, sometimes it just happens when bending
down to pick something up or kneeling.
How about all the fat people who effectively do sag their pants because their guts are so big they can't pull them up properly? Know what you see when
they bend down in the supermarket or to pick up dog poop? About two inches of buttcrack.
Will plumbers butt be deemed illegal and worthy of a fine at some point? Plumbers who are so caught up in repairing your sink that their crack might
How about when I see a woman kneeling forward,doing whatever it is and I possibly see a nipple?
I've seen people here say sagging pants is a safety issue. Really? More a safety issue than being 100 pounds overweight? The fat guy who can barely
stand up is going to get out of the way of an oncoming car faster than some 17 year old who sags his pants?
And this is coming from someone who really doesn't like the style, although when I was a teen I did partake for a few years. Spending a bunch of time
in Europe recently I really came to appreciate the style of dress, that just about everyone dresses well. But, they also wouldn't be offended at the
sight of someones underwear. This was a place where nudity is common, especially during the summer on beaches but uncovered boobs on magazines in
supermarkets as well. No one looked twice. I commented to my fiance we wouldn't see that back home because some group of people would be up in arms
about how offended they are, that a boob is a threat to society.
Americans are offended far too easily. Far too uncomfortable with their bodies. You're offended so instead of learning to tolerate it, you want
government to step in. Teens showing their underwear is offensive so yes, the cops should step in? Well, I find fat people offensive and lose my
appetite when I see them in tight clothing, so let's ban fat people from walking around in public. Sagging pants a safety issue? Those same fat people
couldn't bend down and tie their own shoes if their lives depended on it, but they somehow are better prepared for a threat on safety?
Unbelievable how many completely shallow members we have on ATS who support something like this, whom don't have the foresight to see the longterm
ramifications either. It's still illegal in parts of the world for a woman to show her calves. Is that where you want to take this?
