A state lawmaker in Montana says he thinks that yoga pants and Speedos should be illegal in public.
Yep, Montana Rep. David Moore, an elected official, thinks these ladies' outfits…
And this dude's beachwear...
Should be banned from the public. Get out of here, Reese!
Moore introduced a bill Tuesday that would ramp up the state’s indecent exposure laws to include anything that:
exposes the person's genitals, pubic hair, or anus or exposes the areola or nipple of the person's breast with anything less than a fully opaque covering while in a public place or visible from a public place without taking reasonable precautions to prevent exposure, and disregards whether a reasonable person would be offended or alarmed by the act.
Moore said he introduced the bill because he and some concerned citizens were unhappy with a naked bike ride that took place in Missoula. WARNING: This video contains nudity.
Brooks said when introducing the bill that he thought Speedos should “be illegal” in public. Later, he also said he thought yoga pants should be outlawed, according to the Associated Press.
The bill raised some eyebrows from a female member of the legislature, who said it seemed a "little prejudiced" against women.
It was also criticized by the state Democratic party.
"Classic Republican move to try to start a war on yoga pants rather than focusing on policies that will move Montana forward including Medicaid expansion and early childhood education for 4-year olds," spokesman Bryan Watt told BuzzFeed News.
The bill’s life was short-lived however, as it was tabled on Wednesday.
BuzzFeed News has reached out to Moore for comment on his bill.
