The guy apparently makes exceptions for the beach or other ultra casual settings. He's talking about wearing shorts in other settings.
The attitude espoused in that article is very old fashioned...I think it was back in our grandfathers', or great grandfather's day when shorts were considered clothes only for boys to wear; When a boy became a man, he wore pants. It's a very old fashioned attitude and personally, I don't care for it. I'm old fashioned in my own ways with fashion (I'd prefer we wore slacks instead of jeans, for example). But I love shorts.
Offices, funerals, places of worship, important social events, important personal business events, and some cultural or entertainment events could do with a formal approach to dress. You don't have to rearrange your entire life to put on real shoes, cover up some skin, and make sure your underwear isn't on public display.
It isn't any harder to wear clothes that send a "competent adult" message instead of a "giant 12 year old" message. ;)

Where do you work? We are not allowed to wear flip flops. We also are not allowed to be bare-legged, unless it is casual day. If I wear a dress, I am expected to wear hose or tights, and socks or knee-highs with pants.
The only violation I commit on a regular basis is wearing leggings as pants. Leggings are cheap, washable and I wear nice, oversized tops with them.

I wear shorts in the wintertime. To hell with this prancing nancy-boy."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

For example, my sister and her husband got MARRIED (granted, it was a city hall wedding but the principle still stands) wearing jeans and shorts. My parents got married in a city hall wedding too, but at least they dressed up.
My cousin got married a few years ago, and all the men were wearing open suits--no tie. Personally I believe for weddings and the like, men should wear tuxes.
Finally, a few years ago my niece got baptized. I was the godfather. I was also the only one wearing a suit and tie. Her father even just wore a workman's jacket and informal clothes.
