    There's an medical argument for baggy pants. I've got extremely large balls that need accomodating. ;)

    It's ok for girls to do it and show their thongs, remember.
     
  5. Baggy Pants = OK

    Saggy Pants = NOT OK.

    After they rid the streets of saggy pants, maybe they can go after loud car stereos and people that drive with their seats reclined next!! :bassist: Dumb laws?? Maybe but I aprove :D

    I've always been against legislation that violates civil liberties and personal expression....




    But if it takes a law to get those kids to pull up their pants, then I'll vote for it!
     
  10. Will it also apply to plumbers? :p
     
  11. Plumbers only expose the very top of their butt crack and usually it's not done intentionally :) They don't wear their belts underneath their butt cheeks and hold a handfull of their junk to keep their pants from falling all the way off :mad:

    There should be more women plumbers.
     
  13. I don't agree with the law, but I also think you look like a moron for wearing your pants like that. I am turning into an old man :atoz:

    I like turtles.
    What exactly are the criteria for this? How much underwear do you have to be showing to be an offender? Just for the record, I think that this law is ridiculous! Banning fashionable clothing? I admit that I usually show 3-4 inches of boxers (not nearly as bad as some people) but it is for comfort as well as fashion - it is a lot more comfortable and ventilated that tight trousers.

    my 11 yr old son has been told in no uncertain terms that dressing like that will get him grounded for life, as will wearing a baseball cap sideways.

    Harsh... (IMO)

    Might I ask - why? (Not trying to be rude and question your parenting skills - just curious)

  18. The other day my friend something about this that I found funny. "Did some famous rapper just die? Is that why your pants are at half ***?"
     
  19. I don't want to see anyone else's boxers, I do want to see thongs and a hot female plummer would be fantastic, BUT I don't agree with the law becuase it disturbs civil liberties. My parents left a Cuban totalitarian dictatorship partly for that reason. What's next? No mohawks, no tatoos, no topless women on South Beach...No thanks.

    For the record I do not have a mohawk, I don't have a tatoo (I do want a tatoo). It's not big brothers right to tell me what to wear or how to wear it. Now if these kids or people are running around exposing their private area, they should be arrested.
     
  20. I told my Son the same thing at about 11. He's 14 now and wears his pants and hat properly. I try to raise my kids with some manors, dicipline and a work ethic. He has no interest in dressing like an inmate, he ever even brings it up. How often, other than a rapper, do you see someone succesful with saggy pants?? FTW :)
