Indecent exposure McKay? Really?? For sagging pants? Get over it. What is with society today that goes for the instant, over the top reaction and places things in the most serious category of behavior? It's stupid ###### like this which is why the government is shut down... instant outrage over something someone else doesn't like and as a result people try to have most serious consequences occur to make a point.

 

Yes... Sagging pants are annoying, and yes, an eye sore to me, but to class them with someone who's exposing their genitals for having the top of their crack (which would be perfectly acceptable with a chick wearing a midshirt or bikini) is just ridiculous.

My point was referring to social values rather than political ideology and it was an observation rather than a judgement.

Well the cities in Texas tend to be more liberal than the rest of Texas (as is true for virtually everywhere else in the world), so I wouldn't really place too much emphasis on "conservative vs. liberal". Also, this sort of thing I have seen where I live, and I'm in a fairly liberal place.

Next to the drive by they should have a low rider window for those who cant seem to get dressed properly in the morning and the comment about it being fine for women but not men to show skin may be a jovial response but there are people even men gasp! , whos moral standards do object to both types whilst they are eating.

We're talking about two stores out of over 34,000 - it hardly warrants reporting. McDonald's is a franchise meaning that franchise owners and managers have some discretion over the policies of their stores. Most stores won't take any action unless there are substantial numbers of complaints or concerns about indecency. Stores located next to beaches and in hotter locations will have much more skin showing than saggy pants and it wouldn't be in their best interests to ban such customers.

 

PS - It really doesn't surprise me that the stores in question are located in Texas, as the customer base is a lot more conservative than average.

If you read the 'more' you'll see that:

 

... including at least 25 McDonald's, that have followed his lead ...

 

And it is starting in other states as well.

Now if only Walmart would follow suit

Wal-mart needs to have floor sensors and set a weight limit. :p

A lot of shops in Liverpool and elsewhere in the UK have banned people from wearing hooded tops with the hood up in the shops. I can imagine that this follows a similar line of 'anti social behaviour.'

Obviously the hoods thing has the additional 'we can't see your face if you commit a crime' factor. But still, I think it's a good thing (Y)

I hate people who wear their clothes like that simply cause they look like a ######...but at the same time... everyone who is supporting this is rather foolish....its clothes? its underwear ? if you take offence to being able to see some boxers then you need a life...what is the difference to someone walking in with shorts on ? its a persons right to be able to wear what they want if anything at all....

 

I think this is just discrimination against those who dress like this ...taking on some kind of assumption about them

Fair enough, but that's a total of 0.08% of all McDonald's stores.

I bet you sag.

 

Anyway, I fail to see how a McDonalds policy suddenly shut down the government.  Maybe you could explain to me how that happened.

At least doesn't imply a maximum number, just sayin...
