"Who is going to respect you if you don't respect yourself?"

That is the reason Alabama City Councilman Frank Goodman wants to say goodbye to revealing clothing in his town.

Saggy pants, revealing dresses, mini skirts, and short shorts are all on the chopping block if the city council approves the motion.

They want to bring classy back to the streets of Dadeville, Alabama.

Goodman calls teens who walk down the street holding their pants up disrespectful, and that they “have the nerve to walk into a place of business and ask for a job.”

Other city council members are also showing support for the ordinance, which should be ready for a vote at the next council meeting.

If approved, other cities could follow their lead, dictating what residents can and can't wear in public.

Though some Dadeville residents say clothing shouldn't be something the government controls, council members say they have received more positive feedback than anything else they've ever proposed.
