Louisiana Lawmaker Wants To Ban Pajamas In Public
Michael Williams, Commissioner of Caddo Parish District 3, doesn’t want to have to see you in your PJ’s at the shopping mall.
Williams said after seeing a group of young men at a local Walmart wearing pajama pants that revealed one young man’s private parts, he decided to push for an ordinance that would prohibit wearing pajama pants in public.
“Pajamas are designed to be worn in the bedroom at night,” Williams said. “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?”
Khiry Tisdem, of Shreveport, has no problem going out in his “Family Guy” Stewie pajama pants.
“I wear my (pajama) pants anywhere,” Tisdem said. “I’m an American, and I can wear my clothes anywhere I want. I’m a grown man. I pay my own bills, so I can wear my clothes the way I want. I don’t know why it’s an issue.”
Tracy Carter, also of Shreveport, was out shopping Thursday with her 3-year-old son, Aaron — she in her Valentine’s Day fuzzy pajama pants and Aaron in dinosaur pajamas.
“We all wear our pajamas out,” Carter said. “I can get out of the bed and go to the store, and they’re covering everything. I’ve got a 3-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 12-year-old to deal with.”Click here for reuse options!
