City Councilman, Frank Goodman and other Council members just may succeed in banning short shorts and mini-skirts in Dadeville, Alabama. After originally proposing a ban for sagging pants at a meeting last month, they are now considering outlawing short shorts and mini-skirts, too. There could possibly be a foreseeable future of a city where nobody wears short shorts or mini-skirts in public. Goodman’s reasoning is that the ban will promote respect in the community.
In a related Inquisitr article, one of Goodman’s colleagues, Stephanie Kelley, has also proposed that it shouldn’t just be men who are told to cover up after the initial proposal last month.
“My concern is it should be for everybody,” Kelley said at a council meeting, reported the Alex City Outlook.
“I think for the girls, with these shorts up so high looking like under garments and dresses so short, I don’t want us to be showing favoritism.”
According to NYDailyNews, Goodman said this proposal was all about “respect.”
“Who is going to respect you if you don’t respect yourself?” he said at a meeting last month.
“The reason I brought this up is I think people deserve respect when they are in public. I think slacking is disrespectful. I think it gives our younger generation the wrong impression of what is cool.”
Goodman said he does not admire youngsters who walk down the street with their pants down and “have the nerve to walk into a place of business and ask for a job.”
Many of the city council members have shown support for the ordinance. Town attorney, Robin Reynolds, said he hopes to have the ordinance ready by the next council meeting.
“I prayed about this; I know that God would not go around with pants down,” Dadeville City Councilman Frank Goodman said.
“We have people walking down the street with their hand in front of them holding up their pants,” Goodman added. “Then they have the nerve to walk into a place of business and ask for a job. If you come to my house you are going to pull them up before you get on my property, much less in my door.”
Council member James Tarpley was also in favor of the fashion policing, saying, “I have heard more favorable positive comments about us even considering this than I have on anything else since I have been on the council.”
