This small town wants to outlaw mini-skirts and short shorts


Who likes short shorts? Not the people of Dadeville, Alabama. In fact, some citizens there don't like the clothing so much that they want to outlaw it entirely.

Dadeville City Council recently made headlines for proposing a ban of sagging pants just last month. Now, the city is considering adding mini-skirts and short shorts to the list as well, according to the Alex City Outlook.

The idea was introduced by Dadeville City Councilman Frank Goodman at a meeting last month. City Council member Stephanie Kelley also voiced her support for the proposal, believing it shouldn't be just men who should cover up.

My concern is it should be for everyone...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.

Goodman explained his reasoning for the sagging pants band, saying it's all about respect:

Who is going to respect you if you don't respect yourself. 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.

The city councilman feels very strongly about the subject, adding:

If you come into my house, you are going to pull [your pants] up before you get on my property, much less in my door. I've prayed about this. I know that God would not go around with pants down.

He's gotten a show of support from some other city council members. Councilman James Tarpley said he's surprised by just how much support the proposal has gotten:

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.

The town's attorney Robin Reynolds hopes to have the ordinance written up by the next meeting, adding that it would "take a little creativity" if they wanted him to draft something up for females.
