Saggy pants proposal advancing in Tennessee Legislature

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Three years ago, Rep. Joe Towns failed to make Tennessee the first state to fine teenagers for wearing saggy britches. Now the Memphis Democrat has a more comprehensive measure to prohibit "risque dressing" in schools - and its chances of passage are looking good.
The proposal is headed for a House floor vote and is moving steadily in the Senate. It seeks to prohibit students from exposing "underwear or body parts in an indecent manner that disrupts the learning environment."
In addition to boys not sagging their pants, it means female student athletes would have to wear shirts over sports bras that school officials deem inappropriate.
Currently, Arkansas and Florida are the only states that target schools for a saggy pants ban, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

I'm all for stopping saggy pants...but sports bras? Now you've gone too far.


LDAR, bitch.
It's for schools only? How about banning them in public?
The teacher who boards her horse here is a teacher in NH... and they have a very strict dress code... oh and no cell phones allowed (to be turned on/used) while at school.


The Star of Wackbag. Without me, you have nothing.
If you're gonna live in TN, you have to expect to put up with nonsense like this.

A good dress code might have saved poor Trayvon.

I have it under very good authority that the baby jeebus loves teen girls in sports bras...jogging...sweat glistening...

I'll be in my bunk.
