...Why should we just stop at banning sagging pants?!?!
That's the question the tiny town of Dadeville, Alabama is asking after a council meeting this week!
Reports are coming out that the city's council — which last month heard a proposal by one of its members to ban sagging pants within the city limits — is now seeking to even up the playing field against women!
Dadeville City Councilwoman Stephanie Kelley said men shouldn't be the only ones singled out by a ban — so she proposed adding short shorts and mini-skirts to the banned list, too!!
According to the Alex City Outlook, Kelley spoke at the council's meeting this week, saying
"My concern is it should be for everybody. I think for the girls, with these shorts up so high looking like under garments and dresses so short, I don't want us to be showing favoritism."
City Councilman Frank Goodman — who originally proposed the sagging pants ban last month and got this whole debacle started — added:
"It is about respect. Who is going to respect you if you don't respect yourself. The reason I brought this up is I think people deserve respect when they are in public. I think slacking is disrespectful. I think it gives our younger generation the wrong impression of what is cool."
Yeah! Respect and equal treatment! Ban things for both men and women! As long as the city council is going to do dumb stuff, at least it's rooted in equality right?? LOLz!!
Town attorney Robin Reynolds — who, big surprise, was also totally down with those squares in the city council — said at the meeting he'd be happy to write in the additional ban for women:
"If the council wants me to write in something for the females – it will take a little more creativity on my part."
Good luck, Robin. We're so sure you'll craft a masterpiece. Ha!!!
Hey Dadeville — banning men from literally showing their underwear is not the same as banning women from wearing clothes that don't even slightly reveal anything.
What do U think about this ludicrous idea??
