Clueless

Deshon Marman, a 20-year old University of New Mexico football player was kicked off a flight on Wednesday after he was told his clothing was revealing too much, the Associated Press reports.

Police say Marman's baggy pants led to his arrest at the San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday.

Marman was boarding a U.S. Airways flight to Albuquerque when an employee saw that his pants "were below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing."


SFPD Sgt. Michael Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle that Marman was asked to pull up his pants, but he refused. He was then asked to leave the plane.

Fifteen minutes later Marman got off the plane and was cited for trespassing. Marman's mother, Donna, told the Chronicle that her son had attended a friend's funeral and was "still in an emotionally raw state."


Valerie Wunder, a US Airways spokeswoman, says the airline's dress code forbids "indecent exposure or inappropriate" attire.

I'm a frequent flyer and I glad they kicked him off the airplane for baggy pants. I hate that look.

So wait, a private company has standard by which it expects its customers to adhere by in a social setting and people are offended by this?

So if I go to a golf course and they require me to have a golf bag and a gold shirt on they are being unreasonable? Or let's say a church requires men such as the person in the article to pull their pants up so their ass isn't hanging out that's unreasonable? How about a kid's party at Chucky Cheese; should the older sister of the child at the party be allowed to wear shorts that have her ass hanging out and a t-shirt that has **** or Sl*t on it? I know that in general people want a moral relativism race to the bottom, but as a private business I do not see why we think it means they should lower their standards or rules. You can always vote with your wallet and go elsewhere where you can be trashy/uncouth/unkept.

I hope incidents like this continue to occur, because I'm sick and tired of looking at young mens briefs or boxers because their pants are hanging down below the middle of their buttocks. And those of you wearing them -- don't try to tell me it's a fashion statement. It's indecent exposure, it's rude, and it's disrespectful of others. Underclothes are called just that because they are meant to be worn UNDER CLOTHES.

The same goes for women -- some WAY too old -- who wear shorts so short they're riding up their butt cheeks, or halter tops where the bra strap is clearly exposed, and, tops too short to cover your bulging and COMPLETELY unattractive belly fat. I really don't understand how any woman with an ounce of price can look at herself in the mirror in a get-up like that and think she is attractive.

Baggy pants is one thing, but with your ass hanging out? i see this all the time and just wonder how stupid people are willing to look to seem "cool". Not OK to show off your panties in public boys, especially not on an airline where emergency precautions are of utmost importance and you could trip and endanger others wearing your pants around your knees. If someone asks you to pull your pants up, is it really so hard? some of these airline expulsions seem inappropriate but this time i have to side with the airline. Do as your told or get off the plane.

I hope to God that the judge gives the punk at least 6 months in jail to let him think about showing his ass in public and not pulling his pants up when it was requsted by the flight attendent. I guess there is no cure for STUPID thou.

This is Big Brother at it's worst. Young men wear baggy pants. WHO CARES? Especially on an airline flight where they will be sitting anyway. Don't people have anything better to do than hassle other people who aren't hurting anyone? It's amazing....people who won't say a word about our economy raping the middle class and kicking the working and lower classes in the teeth. But a young guy with baggy pants, THAT'S a problem.

well i recently flew into dallas from norfolk with american airlines I made it threw security, the air port bars and shopping area and boarded my flight only to have a flight attendent after we had been seated tell me my shirt which had the word "F#ck" printed as that not the complete word tell me if i didnt change my shirt i would not be allowed to fly. i see how this is offensive however it did not say the correct word nor did anyone stop me before to alert me that it was not allowed. I think what makes people angry with this rule is that we are not warned ahead of time, and that we made it thus far before something is said. luckly i was allowed to just turn my shirt inside out and carry on my journey but no where in the ten thousands signs and your not allowed's did i see offensive or possibly offensive clothing.

I believe it would fall into the category of common sense.

Ah, yes, common sense. Anyone remember what that is? I know a good number of young people don't seem to have it anymore, most likely because their parents didn't bother to teach them any. And then they wonder why their kids are such punks and smart-asses and so hard to manage.

And self respect. How do you think anyone will respect you if you dont respect yourself. Set a higher standard!

It wasn't for baggy pants, it was for having his ass hanging out.

Exactly. "Baggy" meaning that they very big on him. "Sagging" would be the more appropriate term. I can't stand seeing dudes with their pants sagging. PULL UP YOUR PANTS FOR GODS SAKE!!! My best friend says that sagging pants like that mean you're someone's bitch.
