Florida's Close To Passing An Anti-Saggy Pants Law

florida-working-on-anti-saggy-pants-law.jpg

And the baggy pant backlash continues!

The state of Florida is thisclose to passing a law that would keep students from looking like a fool with their pants on the ground.

Under the proposed bill, which already passed in the Senate, both male and female students will be required to keep their pants up and underwear covered.

If they don't, punishment ranges from "a verbal warning to a three day in-school suspension and a 30 day suspension from extracurricular activities like football or theatre".

As you may remember, the UK tried to pass a similar law, but a judge ultimately decided such a ban could violate human rights.

Who wants to bet someone in Florida will try to fight this law for the same reason???

UK Declares Ban On Saggy Pants Violates Human Rights

Filed under: AnglophiliaLegal MattersPolitik

Wearing your pants below your butt might make you look like a fool, but you have the right to look that way.

At least according to a British judge.

A judge in the UK has ruled that putting a ban on saggy pants could violate human rights.

The ruling comes after a case in which the UK courts tried to give some douchey 18-year-old "thug" an "antisocial behavior order" and ban him from "wearing trousers so low beneath the waistline that members of the public are able to see his underwear" along with any tops "with the hood up," as it may be intimidating to others.

Though not everyone agrees, such as those from the Campaign Against Political Correctness, which stated that the judge's decision meant "human rights of the criminal are put above the human rights of innocent people."

However, Big Brother Watch group supported the teen, adding:

"The proper punishment for the comically low-riding trousers favored by some people is that we all think they look ridiculous."

Ridiculous indeed.

But we agree, it's still the right of the individual to dress how they'd like. Underwear showing or not.

The Saggy Pants Campaign Is A Waste Of Time!

ap100401121114_e.jpg

New York Senator Eric Adams is receiving a lot of backlash for Stop the Sag campaign, especially from the fashion industry.

Phat Farm founder (say that 3x fast!) Russell Simmons has voiced his disapproval for the saggy pants campaign, saying:

I like Sen. Adams, but this is wrong-headed and a waste of time. This is the latest example of adults trying to repress the creativity and individuality of kids. Why would kids want to dress like Sen. Adams? There is no connection to saggy pants and the ability to succeed. Just look at what buttoned-up America has done to the rest of the world and each other. Why can’t kids be different?

Vice President of Sean John clothing company Jeff Tweedy also expressed the same concerns and believes the Senator is unfairly targeting the African American culture. Fumes Tweedy:

"I wish he wouldn’t focus on African-Americans and instead talk about all races. Many different people are involved with this trend. It’s not just black kids. You can go to Washington Square Park and see skaters wearing tight Levi’s in a similar way. This was a fashion statement. It was never a gang statement."

Even Obama thinks it's a waste of time way before this whole campaign started! He told MTV before winning the election:

"Here is my attitude: I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time.…Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What’s wrong with that? Come on. There are some issues that we face, that you don’t have to pass a law, but that doesn’t mean folks can’t have some sense and some respect for other people and, you know, some people might not want to see your underwear — I’m one of them.”

They all make some fairly reasonable points.

What do U think? Is the saggy pants campaign a waste of time (and money)???

Senator Wants You To Pull Your Pants Up

Because there aren't any bigger things to worry about, right?

New York senator Eric Adams wants the youth of America to pull their damn pants up.

To reinforce his message he's wasted tax payer money by erected six billboards and created this PSA.

Maybe he should get in contact with American Idol reject General Larry Platt to back his campaign with his "Pants On The Ground" song!

Watch Adams' Stop the Sag campaign in the clip, above!

Do U agree with the New York senator???
