I'm supporting a bill that mandates wearing your underwear over your clothing.

It's embarrassing, and when your body works against you, it is cause for bullying. Don't want to be mocked, then don't give people a reason to do so.

The very reason this should be a law is because mothers/women at large in America, (because you won't see this anywhere else in the world), have lost common sense when it comes to personal appearance. It's like there is a laziness epidemic. Ever watch What Not To Wear? it's eye opening...and it is preposterous that such show even airs.

It's not about "spoiling it for everyone else", it's about what is appropriate for walking around in public places. If there were no clothing items available in stores, then you could use the excuse that you couldn't find any clothes to wear, (still stupid and preposterous), but we have clothing items available; GYM's have changing rooms and showers...there is no EXCUSE under the sun for why someone should appear in public wearing yoga pants and show their flabbiness to the world.

Actually, I doubt this.

How about, "Those clothes are very comfortable" or "People in America are free to wear whatever they want"?

That people shouldn't be ashamed of their body?

That's your prerogative.

Why don't you teach your kids to do what they want, and stand up to bullies, rather than knuckling under to bullies?

Don't read books. Don't wear glasses. Don't raise your hand in class. Don't be smart.

Now we get to the real nub of the problem. Some women actually have the audacity to wear yoga pants when their physical appearance doesn't meet your high standards. Who's being a bully now? Go join the Taliban if you want to tell women what is appropriate for them to wear in public.

Oh for Christ sakes I have a child too! Do you really want the government involved legislating a public dress code? They intervene enough in our lives as it is! At any rate, I realize there are a lot of people out there who dress horribly, and yoga pants aren't for everyone! Fine looking women wearing them on the other hand....Well... either way I don't think we need the government mandating dress codes. If you're worried about what to tell your child, it's quite simple... just because so-and so- does it that doesn't mean you can. It is up to you to teach your kids, and dictate what they should wear. My mother told me as a teenager that if I ever came through the front door with a tatoo, an earring, or a mohawk, she'd throw me through the back door. Worked for me! At 41, I still don't have any tatoos or piercings. Not that I ever wanted them anyway.

I have children. I'm not concerned if they see someone else's clothing. Furthermore, I'm not such a lazy and inept parent that I'm worried about my children being taught by someone else's attire. And people who don't dress they way you want to force them to dress under penalty of law clearly are not embarrassed.

Hiarlious!

You want others to teach your children lessons about what to wear. You want others to dress in a way that pleases you.

And you have the temerity to call them lazy...

'appropriate'
'stupid and preposterous'
'no excuse'

Those are just empty phrases. They mean nothing more than what you want. It's all about you, isn't it? Stop being so completely self-absorbed.

Yoga pants on a well built woman make grocery shopping entertainment as well as necessity. Why does this country get all messed up about women dressing in revealing clothing but remain completely unconcerned with male body builders in T shirts? Why are we still clinging to Puritan restraint?

Indeed it does Greg! I hate shopping! So, seeing a few hotties walking around in yoga pants definitely makes the experience more bearable. As for acting all Puritancial, your guess is as good as mine. I'm more on the conservative side (right-libertarian), but even I don't understand why so many of us are ashamed of the human body?

You are that hysterical over yoga pants? I think you need to get a grip. Like you have to explain yoga pants to your kids because it's that confusing to them? I'd have to say there must be something wrong with the kids if they're questioning yoga pants. Seriously....yoga pants. If a piece of clothing causes this much panic in you, you need to probably move to the middle of nowhere, that's the only solution.

Looks like you answered your own question. You make it a 'teachable moment'. Teach your kids that some people choose to dress immodestly (in your opinion), and the downside of dressing that way.
