Is it ok for a Mentally Handicapped  man in his 20s to wear shorts during the summer, if he is not potty trained?

That is totally fine.  As long as he is wearing an adult diaper.  I know that sometimes you can't potty train disabled people.

I volunteered and was on the board for a group home of multi-handicapped adults. I don't recall any of them being fully able to control their bathroom habits. And yes, they wore shorts during the hot summer months. But as others have mentioned, they did wear disposable undies. That was a big help when we went on outings and didn't have to worry about any accidents. Otherwise they would have been too limited in their activities.
