Do you support Louisiana's new "Saggy Pants Ban?"Posted by: dmussi12
One of Louisiana's civil parishes passed a law banning saggy pants this week. The punishments are small ($50 for the first offense), but some argue that the law steps too far, or is a result of older members of the community trying to "fix" the younger generation.

Yes, this is a good law that prohibits a form of public indecency
No, this law is irrational and oversteps the bounds of even local government
It is not nudity, and the government has no business telling people how high they must wear their pants.
I don't personally care for seeing that, but it's not my pnts, and it's not my place to tell someone how to dress. You let them dothis, what's next?
It looks pretty stupid and dumb, but a ban? seriously? We are not some Islamic theocracy to ban stupid stuff like this.
Yeah, I hate this very long over fad with a white-hot passion, but... No ban.
Total government iverreach. the government shoulsnt tell you how to wear your pants.
Happening in my state, but I really think its ridiculous that the government is telling you how to wear pants. I find low riding stupid, but making it illegal is taking it to a whole new level.
The thing is if a law was passed banning women from wearing short shorts, or even bikinis, it would be perceived as an overreach. If a law was passed banning shirtless men, it would be perceived as "big government." This law looks at one specific trend among many and bans it. The same argument for this one could be used for those outfits(?) mentioned above, but never would be. I actually do wonder why (non-rhetorical)
Although you can't run with your pants down and I do not want to see anyone's boxers. If you ban this you will have to ban women wearing daisy dukes and all of the other forms. Showing even more of their bottom cheeks. I guess it is a freedom of expression :/
It does prevent indecency. It is however a lie, they are not better than this.
