Banning baggy pants and slightly underwear

No baggy pants, no display of boxers or the unsightly thong, not even a bra strap, not one of them if authorities in Atlanta have their way.

“Little children see it and want to adopt it, thinking it’s the in thing,” says Atlanta Councilman C.T. Martin Wednesday. “I don’t want young people thinking that half-dressing is the way to go. I want them to think about their future.”

But, apparently, teaching students to dress more appropriately isn’t an option, not according to this AP article entitled Atlanta considers banning baggy pants.

The proposed ordinance states that “the indecent exposure of his or her undergarments” would be unlawful in a public place. It would go in the same portion of the city code that outlaws sex in public and the exposure or fondling of genitals.

The penalty would be a fine in an amount to be determined, Martin said.

Earlier this year, the town council in Delcambre, La., passed an ordinance that carries a fine of up to $500 or six months in jail for exposing underwear in public. Several other municipalities and parish governments in Louisiana have enacted similar laws in recent months.
