Teenagers in Florida are set to be banned by law from wearing low-slung jeans that reveal their underwear.

Senate Bill 228, also known as the "Pull Your Pants Up" Bill, was last week overwhelmingly approved by the state legislature. It is expected to be signed by Governor Rick Scott this week.


The measure prohibits students from wearing clothing that "exposes their undergarments" or "indecently exposes their body parts" while they are at school.

It is aimed at putting an end to the Hip-Hop-influenced trend, favoured especially by young men, in which jeans are worn around the buttocks rather than the waist.


State Senator Gary Siplin, a Democrat of Orlando and a longstanding advocate of a ban, described it as "pro-family, pro-education, pro-jobs".

"It is necessary to put the focus back on learning in the classroom," said Mr Siplin. "We can eliminate inappropriate dress as one of the many distractions in public schools today."

Pupils would receive a verbal warning on their first breach. For a second offence, a pupil would be banned from extracurricular activities for up to a week and his or her parents would be called in for a meeting.

A third strike, and pupils would be suspended from classes for three days and be banned from extracurricular activities for up to a month.





Don't understand how they have time to pass stupid bullshit laws like this.

Like I said during the no swearing law thread it all ties into public decency. It's no different that if you walked around down town wearing juts a bra. It's not tasteful for public and shouldn't be done. And if you look this one is targeted at school so yes they can dictate what you wear at school.

Or the mandatory drug testing for federal funding. Or the second level of corporate tax cuts. Or the shrinkage of unemployment benefits. Or the 18 bills under investigation submitted "clarifying" abortion laws.

How on earth is he still in office? How was he voted in in the first place?

Oh, and the Koch brothers can determine what professors can be hired in state universities for economic classes?

Damn I hate FL.

I did not vote for that lizard looking dude. I voted to simply vote against him, unfortunately it wasn't enough.

I think we should ENCOURAGE pants sagging. That way those whippersnappers would be easier to catch when they are stealing my TV, tripping over their crotches.
