But does he realize that we are told how to dress, as in we must wear clothing covering all private parts, at a bare (nice pun, I guess) minimum? Does this have to be a response to any and all situations?

    As for the comparision to the fat guy with his gut sticking out the bottom of the shirt or butt cracking, that is normally unintentional and most guys correct it as soon as they can. Sure, there are some slobs who don't, which is beyond me, but slovenish and intentionally running around with your underwear half exposed are two different matters. They are not exposing certain areas intentionally as a fashion statement. That is a big difference from "mopin'", at least that's what I understand the term to be.

    He would get fined in the city I live in... it is illegal to go shirtless in Oakwood, OH. This law was passed by the City Council awhile back. There are a lot of "well off" peeps in Oakwood and a lot of peeps have lawn service companies do their yardwork. Evidently the "well offs" didn't like seeing the lawn service guys working in their town shirtless... hence, the law that still exists today.

    They were probably worried about their desparate housewives digging the gardener just a little too much.

    Here here. Bad fashion is worse than showing too much.

    I don't think overweight women should be allowed to wear spandex. This should be a law.

    I also don't think men should wear spandex, whether fat or thin or in between. This should be a law.

    Both offend me.
