Modesty and the Decline of the Waistline

I was watching a movie the other day. Kevin Bacon returned home after a rewarding day in Corporate America donning a nice gray suit, perfectly shined shoes, and a tie. No big deal. Until I noticed where his pants were sitting. Nice and high. Granted there was no strip tease so I can’t say for sure, but his belt was very near, if not covering his navel. This was of course an old movie (80′s I believe) so one was not yet subjected to “bum cleavage” and the waxed “lower belly” of the male gender.

What has happened to waistlines these days? I would like to see something in the youth instructions about modesty for men. I think it is safe to say that women are hounded on a regular basis about what is and is not modest. How about those waistlines for our gender opposites? 

To be fair, I do recognize this is also an issue for women :) Maybe it’s about time for the men to set a trend and be held responsible for a portion of this modesty thing. Men and boys, I plead with you; hike up your pants and buy a good belt. I, for one, am tired of seeing your underwear, watching you walk funny just to try and hold your pants above your knees, and being afraid of the fall out when you stretch, or go for that basket, and bare your “belly”. Cover up already!

    I am baffled and disgusted by the boys and men who I see intentionally sag their pants. There their pants are, sitting nice and high, right where they should be, and the dummies grab the waistband and carefully lower the pants until a (un)healthy amount of underwear is showing. I have thought about all the stupid things I see around me, and that has to be the stupidest by far.
