I’m all for decency, but there’s something wrong when authorities want to create a dress code.
The city of Atlanta is considering banning baggy pants, thongs, sports bras and bra straps. Anyone showing underwear in public could be fined.
The proposed ordinance would also bar women from showing the strap of a thong beneath their pants. They would also be prohibited from wearing jogging bras in public or show a bra strap, said Debbie Seagraves, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia.
The proposed ordinance states that “the indecent exposure of his or her undergarments” would be unlawful in a public place. It would go in the same portion of the city code that outlaws sex in public and the exposure or fondling of genitals.
