One Alabama city is now considering banning mini-skirts and short shorts

After first proposing an ordinance banning saggy pants, the Dadeville City Council is now considering banning short shorts and mini-skirts.

Dadeville City Councilwoman Stephanie Kelley said it shouldn't just be men who are singled out on their attire.
"My concern is it should be for everybody," Kelley said during Tuesday's council meeting, the Alex City Outlook reported. "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 for the next council meeting.
City Councilman Frank Goodman originally proposed a ban of sagging pants at a meeting last month.

"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."
According to the Alex City Outlook, other city council members showed support for the ordinance.
