iReporter Lisa Oaks posted an iReport this week that caught our eye -- a photo of a man in the Dallas Fort-Worth Airport wearing short shorts and a halter top. "This is ok for a male revue nightclub, but not for public daytime," said Oaks, whose husband Mark snapped the shot.

What is this country becoming? Now they want to dictate what we can and cannot wear on a flight? While I agree that guy's outfit is tasteless (I mean, his shorts are tinier than mine and that's hard to do), he has every right to wear what he wants! There's a link to the Southwest mini skirt saga in there. What that girl was wearing is what I wear all the time. Hardly something to be kicked off the plane for! Really, the airlines should stick to what they know best...getting people from point A to B.

Hey, no fair. They have a picture of the nasty old guy in the halter top and sorts but no picture in the linked story about the girl in the short mini skirt. I want to see how short it was -- purely for informational purposes, of course.

It should not be a rule imo, but some people could really use some help with picking their outfits.

And being that some flights are excruciatingly long and people have to sit very close to each other, it wouldn't be a bad idea if people used some good sense and dressed appropriately. One is free to wear whatever one likes, but being respectful to others is never a bad idea.

If I am, for example, in a restaurant, I can always leave and go somewhere else, but in an airplane it is impossible unless I have a parachute lol.

No matter what you choose to wear, please bathe and wear deoderant before your flight!

Here it is, just for you! Really, hardly offensive. I wear stuff like this every single day. She's fully covered and has a nice body to boot. I personally do not find it offensive at all, and it appears neither did others since she was allowed back on the flight. In fact, she got a nice career boost out of the whole thing by appearing on a ton of shows and her layout in Playboy was quite nice, if I can say so myself!

It doesn't say where the flight was heading to. San Francisco, maybe?

Yea, because the only place homosexuals live is in SF.

As the picture of the SW girl shows, women have been thrown off for wearing more. I was on a plane wher a couple of big sistahs got on wearing not much more than what the maker intended us to see. I thought 'someone would pay these hookers for an out of town job...eeewwww'.
