U.S. residents fight for the right to hang laundry
PERKASIE, Pennsylvania (Reuters) – Carin Froehlich pegs her laundry to three clotheslines strung between trees outside her 18th-century farmhouse, knowing that her actions annoy local officials who have asked her to stop.
Froehlich is among the growing number of people across America fighting for the right to dry their laundry outside against a rising tide of housing associations who oppose the practice despite its energy-saving green appeal.
The article goes on to say that people have been fined and that the biggest complaint is that people don't want to look at other people's clothes especially their underwear.
That's some fucked up shit right there. If you don't want to look at somebodies laundry, don't look at their clothesline. This country has gotten ridiculous with people being told what they can and can't do. Buncha fucking bullshit! Now they want to outlaw clotheslines because they look like "white trash" according to one commentator.
This whole idea of community associations is stupid and exclusive as far as I'm concerned. If you chose to live in a place like that, I feel sorry for you. Obviously you're a pitiful little prole who needs others looking out for your well being.
Let's tell these rule nazis to stick their elitist bullshit up their big asses and stay out of other people's business.
Oh, and BTW: if that cute little sweetie down the road wants to hang her underwear where I can see it, I'm all for it! And if old lady McGill wants to hang her underwear out likewise, I just aint lookin. But bravo to both of you for doing things green and natural.
According to the article 6% of household energy use comes from electric and gas laundry driers
