Ridiculous! Is the picture above indecent or somehow pornographic?

Quote
In an effort to bolster his state's indecent exposure law, Moore introduced House Bill 365 in the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, reports the Billings Gazette. The bill proposes extending the law to include clothes that expose the nipples or give the appearance or simulate a person's buttocks, genitals, pelvic area or female nipple.

The proposal does not specifically name yoga pants in the text, but Moore made his feelings on the garments clear after the hearing.

"Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway," the legislator said following the committee meeting, according to the Billings Gazette.

Quote
Under the current Montana indecent exposure law, a three-time violator of state public nudity laws could face a life sentence. Moore's changes would extend what clothing is defined as indecent, but would lessen the punishment to a maximum of five years in jail and a $5,000 fine. This was done to help with the bill's passage, according to Mashable.

Did I read that right? You can currently receive a life sentence for public nudity?!

Supreme Court Obscenity Definition

1) A thing must be prurient in nature

2) A thing must be completely devoid of scientific, political, educational, or social value

3) A thing must violate the local community standards

If it meets all three of these things, it is obscenity.

Yes, “yoga pants” are, by the definition of “obscenity” provided by the U.S. supreme court, “obscenity,” for “yoga paints” facilitate erotic arrousal, do not contribute anything significant to substantive “scientific, political, educational, or social” (United States) discourse and, as indicated in the opinion of the politician mentioned by the OP, constitute a “violat[ion] [of] the local community standards” (United States) of the U.S. subunit of “Michigan.”

That's so ridiculous.  This is the problem with out politicians.  They do what they want instead of what their constituents want. Priorities are all screwed up and instead of doing meaningful work they go for the easy cop out.

Yes.... yoga pants are a danger to society... unlike guns which are a danger to no one!
So by all means let's regulate clothing!

Nice work with the creative interpretation!

"completely devoid of..." = "do not contribute anything significant"

Ignoring the obvious fact that it's a fashion trend, and widely available in shops that only sell mass-produced stuff from China, which therefore fits under both "social value" and meeting "community standards".

I wonder if this is supposed to somehow derail.... Is that politician an Arab by any chance?? He likes his wives all covered-up, does he? What is he doing in Montana? Grin

Wow, life for showing what we all have? Cue the banjo music.  Cheesy

WTF is wrong with a society that watches grisly murders for entertainment each night, while outlawing yoga pants as a threat to decency?

(Red colorization mine.)

The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, is one of the greatest musical works (i.e., one of the most profound musical manifestations of Hellenic areté) widely known here, yet it is not the most popular (regarding sales) of all musical works here. It would seem, therefor, that market dynamics are irrelevant in determining “social value” (United States) and “community standards” (United States) (unless, of course, one is, quite specifically, considering a business community).
