How are they not related? They both have to do with clothing in public (or the lack thereof).

Really, it's more like **** & Asses.

So the difference has to do with being in a building or being outside?

Nudity is no clothes, while saggy pants are clothes. As much as I hate the style you shouldn't make laws telling people how to dress.

Yes, and anti-nudity laws are telling you that you have to dress. What is your constitutional basis for saying that being naked in public can be made illegal, but not sagging?.

The constitution isn't about good or bad laws, it's about whether or not laws made are in fact legal under the constitution.

Supreme court ruled it unconstitutional.

Its constitutional unless it infringes on another's rights.

It is a shame that we have a falling economy and terrorisn going on, bombings, yet we are worried or upset, maybe about some young boys pants sagging, it is almost laugheable that this is even a topic.


personally, I think a "law" like this is somewhat ridiculous.

sagging pants, while ridiculous in itself, doesnt hurt me, bother me or offend me. it is just a trendy style that will go out of style soon enough.

boys in brooklyn wear the pants like that all the time.
who cares

Sagging is not the same as being naked.


If you want to get real technical about it should we also ban 1 layer of clothing seperating the skin? Last I checked people who sag wear underwear.

Charge "baggies" as indecent exposure and make 'em sign up with the sex offenders' registry.
That will cure the problem, ASAP.
