Short shorts and mini-skirts may be disappearing from one Alabama city.
The Dadeville City Council is considering an ordinance to ban the attire. The proposal comes after the City Council last month passed an ordinance banning saggy pants.
The council, however, didn’t think men should be singled out when it comes to provocative clothing.
“My concern is it should be for everybody,” said Councilwoman Stephanie Kelley during a council meeting on Tuesday. “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.”
Dadeville City attorney Robin Reynolds is expected to have the ordinance ready by the next council meeting.
“It is about respect,” Goodman said. “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.”
