The T Ban On Baggy Pants Is Low Blow

STUDENTS WERE INSTRUCTED TO WEAR THESE TYPE OF GYM PANTS IN PUBLIC FOR MANY YEARS

I WAS FORCED TO WEAR THESE GYM PANTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR MANY YEARS…

YET THESE ARE AN OUTRAGE?

…YET THESE ARE AN OUTRAGE?

Boxer shorts are not much different from some gym shorts. Both are made of cotton, about the same thickness, same length, similar colors. I can go out in public while wearing gym shorts and everything is fine. Yet if I stroll around in boxer shorts, I’m horrifying everybody.

This is confusing.

Now The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T”) is telling riders to pull up their saggy pants before boarding a bus. Seems the shock of seeing someone’s boxers is infuriating to some folks who expect everybody to be just like them. If a person’s jeans are sagging and he’s not wearing any underwear, then I see the problem. Public nudity is against the law, as it should be.

But what’s the big deal about seeing somebody’s boxers as long as they’re not “dealing crack” so to speak? Jeans are made of cotton material. Boxers are made of cotton material. Why is one okay and one obscene?

Every decade has its fashion disasters, which makes looking at old videos more fun. Outlawing bad fashion is a ridiculous idea.

IF PEOPLE WANT TO LOOK THIS IDIOTIC, THATS THEIR RIGHT

IF PEOPLE WANT TO LOOK THIS IDIOTIC, THAT'S THEIR RIGHT

By the way, fashion always goes full circle. I predict that in a few years, saggy jeans will be out. Now is the time to buy stock in companies that make suspenders and belts. The old mantra “buy low and sell high” is as American as, well, parachute pants, mohawks, tattoos, mullets, thongs, Spandex, tongue piercings, gaudy Hawaiian shirts, and saggy-bottom jeans.

    The author is obviously a total idiot. Most of us don’t want to see your underwear or any other trashy behavior on your part. Grow up you stupid immoral pervert. The world does not revolve around you and your like minded morons.

    I wish to disrespectfully disagree with barnyfife’s above comment. The author is not a total idiot, he is no pervert, and he is CERTAINLY not immortal! The world DOES revolve around him and his, like, minded Mormons! GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

    It is permissible for the “T” to have rules for clothing just like a library, city hall, or a court room would have. I can promise you that if the person dressed with saggin pants entered any of our District Courts the judge would instruct them (Perhaps not very politely) that they will pull their pants up the court room. Pants would absolutely go up.
    The “T” can set their own rules and we can choose to abide by those rules or walk.

    A courtroom is where crimes and problems of a serious nature are discussed and justice is dealt out. That’s different than riding on a stinky bus to get to work. Don’t forget those buses were paid for by taxpayer money and some taxpayers like to wear baggy pants.

    I love that the picture of this saggy pants dude is holding mitts with some high heeled well dressed girl. Makes me wonder what the rest of us have been doing?

    the truth

    after speaking with my uncle I have to laugh. He’s been a prison guard for 20+ years. This fashion most definitely comes from prison but the funny part is what it means. Low pants = Available. oops…bet most of these kids didn’t realize that! haha

    This is total B.S. Sorry @ss lawmakers with no time to handle real issues are trying to make waves with this completely undefendable law. So what’s next banning women who show their thong’s WHALE-TALE from getting one the T? If this law targeted any other group than young kids (who by the way are known for doing things adults can not understand) it wouldn’t last 3 seconds. Why not ban short skirts, spiked bracelets, and scary tattoos as well.

    if you have gym shorts on:
    #1. you’re in gym class, not on public transportation
    #2. even if you ARE on public transportation in gym shorts, you still (should) have drawers on UNDER them.

    do i REALLY need to see someone’s skidmarks while i’m heading to work?

    i WISH they would bring this to pittsburgh

    I know this is old news but I was just directed here from another story about the guy arrested on the airplane in San Fran.
    One thing that stuck out to me here that has not yet been brought up is the idea mentioned by the writer that the sagging pants fad will pass in a few years. Apparently, it won’t. It’s been going on since at least 1993 — nearly 20 years! Every other area of fashion has already circled back to the ’60s and the ’80s in that time frame. Are thugs just not that creative that they’ve got to hold on to this fashion trend for dear life? It sure seems like it.
    Good for you Ft. Worth!
