A US politician wants to make wearing leggings 'indecent exposure'

Leggings just make him really uncomfortable, OK?

A US POLITICIAN is trying to strengthen the indecent exposure laws in his home state – because he doesn’t like people wearing leggings in public.

Republican politician David Moore, from Montana, has proposed a bill that expands the existing laws to include any nipple exposure (including male nipples).

The Daily Mail reports that the bill also covers any garment that ‘gives the appearance or simulates’ an individual’s bum, genitals, pelvic area or nipples.

Under the proposal, tight-fitting beige or flesh-toned clothing could be considered ‘indecent exposure’ – and Moore said that he wouldn’t mind if people were even arrested for wearing provocative clothing, if police saw fit.

“Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway,” he said.

The politician has backing from Walt Hill, a retired college professor who helped Moore draft the proposal after a group of cyclists biked nude through the city of Missoula last summer.

Hill said of the bill:

I want Montana to be known as a decent state where people can live within the security of laws and protect their children and associates from degrading and indecent practices.

Good luck with that, lads.
