You've obviously never been to Miami, FL.

Let me clarify that I was not suggesting that people walk around with genitals fully exposed (IIRC the US Supreme Court had ruled that nudity was not inherently obscene). It was a rare exception when anything popped out in front of me, just as women's breasts have occasionally popped out of shirts, bras, etc.

I do believe people should be able to dress as they please or, to phrase it anoother way, gvt has no right to tell people how to dress.

And, once again, no need to apologise!

Incidentally, I don't think I've indicated my gender here on LF... I could be wrong. Anyways, I was just surprised that you would be surprised that some people find men attractive. You don't live in Ogre country, do you?

I feel ripped off.
Sure, don't you remember all those commercials:

"Excuse me, are those bulge-boy jeans?"

I thought the qualifier made it abundantly clear that this is not everywhere.

It was in New England somewhere. I think it was Mass. I can't remember exactly, I just remember it because it made CNN at the time, and I laughed about how silly it was.

So long as the government can tell people what can be broadcast on public media, they can also regulate to an extent how people dress. (Hint: I'm not a fan of media censorship either, I think it should be the viewers that censor based on their households preferences)

If people are able to ban sagging pants people will eventually think of complaining about video games and banning them to. We must stop this ban so people wont think of the power of complaining.

actually its the other way around. Video games have been banned in several countries around the world for various reasons. The US doesn't do this as we have the companies willing to use their legal muscle to ensure that a ban does not go through.

Lets face it, banning of being partially disrobed is nowhere near the same as attacking a product that in order to be seen must be purchased. Which they already do not allow in the hands of minors. Heck if they can tell me I cannot smoke in property I own because it is a business, they can sure as heck tell you to pull up your pants.

Certain clothing is already restricted. Wearing Gang Colors is against the law in some areas.
