Bring out the burqa.
For everyone.

And I shouldn't have to see guts, or feet, or breasts or guys with shirts half buttoned.
Is that all civilized?

Reminds me when I was young and places tried to ban long hair on males........that worked didn't it?

Fads come and go. Bans only make people want to do it more. I think it's stupid but I would do it to protest stupid laws.

All in context. there is a big difference in a perv down at the public swimming pool sporting a water-wiggle and a dumb kid with his jeans below his boxers.

I used to get offended see a kids boxer butt, Until I saw jam packed speedos at the natatorium. If old swimmer guy can wear a speedosausage thong, then I'm not gonna complain about skater kids boxers...

This is all kinds of wrong.

I find it funny that so many are going on and on about the 24 hour wait for a tattoo that is being proposed as government overreach, yet they are all for banning a dumb fashion choice.

BOTH laws are government overreach. Let someone get a tat that they might regret later, their choice.
Let someone wear droopy drawers, their choice.
Neither harms anyone else.

The City Council President is named Clifford Poindexter ... what a cool name!

Seriously, if they try to ban it ... this stupid fashion fad will seem even more cool to the kids. I suggest an opposite approach: encourage all elderly, overweight, and other people to go around with sagging pants - it will look so ridiculous the younger folk might just forsake the dumb trend.

This is hilarious! The same people gunning for this absurd law are the same people crying about not being able to buy a 50 oz soda. Oh the irony.
