Today’s comic is a reference to this news article I happened upon over the weekend. Apparently Florida is trying to pass a law that would make it illegal for kids teenagers to wear their pants below a certain level. The article doesn’t say what that level is or whether or not its only enforceable in school or on the streets as well. It does however, state that repeat offenders could spend up to 60 days in jail.
All I could think of when I read this was how stereotypical this is of a retirement state like Florida. The first image that came to my mind was a group of eighty year old men, standing around complaining about kids these days.
As funny as this is I think its more than a little drastic. Your trying to control how kids act and think by changing how they dress. I can tell you first hand that this doesn’t work. A persons style of dress is influenced by their personality, not the other way around.
