The Ban on Sagging Pants Debated on Dr. Phil

We've discussed this here before, so I thought I'd give all you debaters a heads-up. The ban on sagging pants is the topic of discussion on Dr. Phil Monday. It looks like its going to be pretty heated, so I plan to watch. We can discuss it more in depth here after it airs.

Why not spend time talking to these retarded little kids about the saggy pants thing? $20 says most of them don't even understand how it came about.

Didn't Dr. Phil used to have dignity?

Wasn't he the guy who tried to keep troubled marriages together? And give advise to those who are getting divorced? And help parents with their out-of-control kids?

Now he's discussing Britney Spears and debating the ever so important issue of sagging pants?

He still does those things......and Britney Spears does need help regardless of what you think about her. For the record, I don't like her either. And its not the "sagging pants" that is the real issue, it is all the underlying problems that are associated with it such as gangs (aka "out of control kids"), public decency, and the notion that speaking out against it is inherently racist. The pants themselves are a symptom of bigger issues.

Wow and I thought the UK were nuts for banning smoking in every enclosed space - Nah seriously the out of control kids are a big issue, I'm only 24 but things have changed a lot since I was eighteen... feels like a century ago. Something does need to be done about it though, it's only going to get worse if not.

Still, i think banning baggy pants and what not is a bad bad idea. For reasons unknown someone out there if forgetting about all the civil rights stuff and try to impose unreasonable control over people. What next? Nationalwide dresscode and uniform?

Interesting. Wonder if this little debate will make me think any higher of Dr. Phil...

by the way, MdKnightR, every time I see your avatar I feel all patriotic and civic-minded. Just an observation.

I oppose the ban. As PW noted, there is that pesky little civil rights thing.

I don't understand this mindset at all. "I don't personally do something, so if it's banned, then I don't care.

Imagine having such a mindset during a time like the civil rights movement. "I'm not black, so I don't care if they have rights."

I dont think this is going to go anywhere. Its unconstitutional. They cant require people to not wear baggy pants. This is not something that you make into a law, its something that shouldnt even have to be mentioned. I think the effort needs to be put into going after gangs and dealing with all the underlying problems young people have. Telling people to pull up their pants isnt going to change anything. Besides the cops have better things to do. This is almost as much of a waste of time for them as stopping to get donuts.

Okay, how should I explain this...okay, the analogy that TK-8252 used IMO, is of context. We are talking about the ban on sagging pants, not something so huge as the civil rights movement. That is my opinion. Hope that cleared it up. I know that I probably shouldn't have said what I did, but rather refine.

Oh, I'd agree that my analogy might not be the best, but I do think that it holds merit. I didn't have to use civil rights as the example; I could have used something else.

"I don't drink apple juice, so if it were banned, then I wouldn't care."

(Unless of course you do drink apple juice.)

This is also a similar mindset I see with the smoking debate, although I don't want to go too far off-topic. "I don't smoke, so if it's banned, then I wouldn't care."

Why not live and let live? Why not stand up for the rights of others to do as they wish? You know, as in: "I disagree with what you have to say, but will fight to the death to protect your right to say it."

I would certainly hat to see that, as always.

But I would happily support that hutt sagging his pants showing his stinkin skid marks. Point, this is an extremely bad way to solve a problem. Its basically a severe invasion to civil rights in return for minimal effect on fighting crime.

I was referring to the front, not the rear. Most guys with sagging pants wear boxers. Boxers can be revealing... especially if they're undersized.

I got loads of eye candy as a pizza driver.

This reminds me of the attempt to ban the zoot suit in LA during WWII, except that zoot suits were/are cool and sagging pants are tasteless. Plumber's butt is now fashionable?! Great.

Some people like to engage in sexual relations with males. Often they're female, sometimes male, and on rare occasion a hermaphrodite.

As for the sagging pants, It depends on the localle. If they ban them in schools, I can understand that. They don't allow clothing that is too revealing. This is just an extension of that. And actually, Aeroldoth has pointed out exactly the reason they should be banned. Any clothing that allows genetalia to be seen in public is subject to restriction based on public indecency laws(though I must admit we're a bit puritan in comparison to other countries).

I was quite surprised by the show myself. I couldn't believe that Al Sharpton was actually making sense! I also see what should be the middle ground in the issue....campaigning against saggin' with music and advertising is a much better alternative to outlawing it. Dallas, TX actually went from "banning" to campaigning against it with billboards and some help from hip-hop stars.

Why is it that when people speak of or envision a male showing ANY amount of skin, then the male MUST be unattractive?? Take a look at these images, which have been floating around the net for some time:

Paris, France vs. Paris, Kentucky

Obviously, we are meant to consider one of them attractive, and the other not. I couldn't find a similar comparison with males, but it seems that people think that males with low-riders must be exclusively of the second image type. Males showing a little extra can be just as hot as females showing a little extra. [/rant]

We are quite puritan, a fact that I think has troubled this country since inception, but that's a different discussion. (H. L. Mencken quote)

While I was referring to male exposure, I was also referring to male bulges, nothing more than you might see at any beach or pool. And IME low pants tend to be most common in poor neighborhoods, areas where the law is not highly regarded... or enforced.

As I said earlier, I think it illegal to try to enforce a public dress code, but it also avoids the real issues, whatever you believe them to be. If you think low pants leads to X, then deal with X. Making everybody pull their pants up won't suddenly fix society's ills, any more than ending video games or music videos will somehow improve people. "Darn that rock music, it made my boy start smoking cigarettes!"

I don't call it a dress code to require pants not to be sagged to the point of exposure. I would support a ban on persons(note male or female makes no diffference in this case) appearing in public with boxers on that have no way to secure the front.

No, the sagging pants are no more protected than a guy wearing boxers in public(which is against the law in some places).

Public performances are different. You pay to get in. And actually yes they could be cited for public indecency anyway without me making the laws. In some areas it is possible to get a public indecency ticket for having your fly down on your pants. Their celebrity status tends to protect them a bit anyway(whether that is right or not isn't being debated). So that is irrelevant. Heck in some areas it is illegal for a man to be on a public street with his shirt off(now that is insane). I don't have to be making laws for it to be possible for a person to get a public indecency ticket for having exposed genetalia.

About 20 years ago, Gene Simmons was cited in Columbus, GA for indecent exposure for dropping his pants on stage. He claims that the suspenders on his outfit came loose and, in return, exposed his underwear. Doesn't sound too far removed from the issue at hand.
