Just when you thought it was safe to wear your PJs out...another attack on your ability to roll out of bed and run errands

U.S. News - Revealing proposal: La. official wants to ban pajamas in public

Quote:
“If you can't (wear pajamas) at the boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it's pajamas," Williams said. "Tomorrow it's underwear. Where does it stop?"
Where indeed?

Luckily the ACLU is there to protect Louisiana residents' constitutional right to wear PJs anywhere

Quote:
“To ban the wearing of pajamas, like any other form of attire,” Esman wrote, “would violate a liberty interest guaranteed under the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. … The government must demonstrate a rational basis for its ban – and Caddo Parish’s has no legitimate rational basis for regulating the attire of its residents."
Comments? Would you support this ban if it were in your city/town?

Is there a rational basis for govt to ban PJs (is see-through nature a reasonable concern)?

And what of the PajamaJeans...are they ok, or more PJ than jean?

My PJ's are not see through or erotic in any way. Unless you're turned on by frosty, he's pretty hot.

The whole thing is stupid. I would just take a fine if it came down to it. If I want to wear PJs to walk my kids to school in the morning or go to walmart I will. What happens if you're ill and have to go get medicine or something? Do you have to get all prettied up just to go? What's next, you HAVE to wear make up, women HAVE to cover their faces??

PJ pants are more pants than pajama. I would be curious what kind of guidelines there would be to say what is a pajama and what is 'real' clothing.

I would be curious to see that definition too...there's a lot of fairly transparent non PJ clothes...

AND I just realized that this would put an end to all Polar Express/Wear Your PJs to School days too Savannah looked stinkin cute when her class did the Polar Express day at daycare right before Christmas...just sayin!

This is so completely stupid and I'd never support such a ban. What a waste of money. I can honestly say I've never seen anyone wear PJs to a restaurant, unless I've just not noticed it. Why does anyone care if another person wears PJs out side the house? And what about people like Ashley's husband who has a skin problem (right?) where PJ pants is what keeps him comfortable?

I really don't see a point in banning pjs out in public, as long as they aren't obscene. I'd rather see someone in pjs than in leggings.

No, I would not support a public ban on pj's.

If a private business wants to ban them, I think that's fine.

Comments? This is just asinine. Unless your pjs have been purchased from the Victoria Secret very sexy collection, I see no issues wearing them in public.

Would you support this ban if it were in your city/town? Big heck no

Is there a rational basis for govt to ban PJs (is see-through nature a reasonable concern)? No, I don't care if it's see through, it's not the governments place to tell us not to wear them. Just ticket those who appear to be naked.

And what of the PajamaJeans...are they ok, or more PJ than jean? I've never worn a pair so I have no clue, but they look like yoga pants to me.

While I personally am not a fan of wearing PJs out of the house, I don't think there should be a ban on them.

I do not support a ban of wearing PJs in public, even though I personally wouldn't.

I might possibly support a ban of pyjama-jeans.

I'd much rather see a ban on camel toe's and moose knuckles. I find gazing upon either of those far more offensive than someone picking up a cup of coffee in their PJ's

it is, here's a pic to help out



in case you're unsure it's the fella carrying the bag. I'd much rather see some Sponge Bob flannel jammies than that any day.

Oh my , I could have done without seeing that picture, and I totally agree. I'd rather see Sponge Bob PJs than that.

I think cheetah print hats and hot pink shirts should be banned in public, especially when worn together by a 30 something woman.

That looks terribly uncomfy...


Stupid ban, plain and simple. I don't think most going out in pjs are wearing nighties and lingerie, so not real sure why it's a concern of anyone.

People come up with some of the most stupid bans/laws/ideas these days. I bet the person that thought this up is like the dude in that pic. With your junk all squished like that, you can't possibly think straight.

But people get to wear t-shirts with pictures of marijuana? Ones that talk about terrorism? Ones that drop every bad word out there? But PAJAMAS are OFFENSIVE? The government just needs to stop. I will wear my tinkerbell fleece PJ's whenever and where ever I please, except work because they have a dress code for obvious reasons.

And I see more "regular" clothes that are offensive simply because they do not FIT and are way to tight. No one wants to see your muffin tops, people! lol lol LMAO
