I Love Yoga Pants

- Lifestyle

yoga pants

A little bit off the normal subject today, but yet a newsworthy subject perhaps. If you haven’t already heard – there is a Montana lawmaker wanting to pass a bill that bans wearing yoga pants in public, to expand the existing indecent exposure law.

Sometimes when I read the news, I just have to move on from it because there are a lot of crazy, negative things going on, but come on. Are you serious? I can’t even think this is real because how ridiculous!  I mean don’t get me wrong – I totally understand why there are certain indecent exposure laws in place, but yoga pants?! I figure with this bill, you might as well include tight jeans, pencil skirts, and anything I wear that isn’t completely loose on my backside. Come on, anyone with any sort of a butt, men included, is going to have an issue abiding to a law that  “gives the appearance or simulates” the buttocks.

And for the love, is this REALLY what he is spending his time worrying about? I don’t live in Montana, but I’m going to make an a** of myself and assume that there might be something a little more important than worrying about banning things that might expose someone’s “buttocks,” and other areas.

Telling people what not to wear is never going to change the issue at hand. We are humans – we have free will. If someone can’t control themselves from looking at another human in an inappropriate way – then maybe they need to consider their behavior because I can guarantee I have never put on a pair of yoga pants to run errands in public thinking I would gain any sort of attention. I think most people wear yoga pants to be comfy and be able to move around while running errands, or walking the dog. And I completely understand people choosing to not wear them – I read an article a month or two ago about a woman who didn’t want to wear them as a sign of respect for her husband. It’s her choice and I’m not one to judge others choices, but this bill saying you can’t wear them at all is silly.

So while I try to fathom this, and still hoping this isn’t a real thing, I’m going straight home today and putting on my favorite pair of yoga pants. What is your take on this? #ILoveYogaPants

    I think this bill is crazy. I wear yoga pants to run in. Which I run both in and outdoor. I also wear my yoga pant to the post office before I go to the gym.

    If this bills pass I know a tons of people are going to be mad.

    Wow, how interesting and so weird, banning yoga pants? Yes, there are actual major issues in the world to solve other than banning yoga pants in public. I actually know the other articles that you’re talking about, I read one about the wife that chose not to wear them.

    RIGHT- is THIS really what he should be worrying about? Good God, get a grip, dude.

    I’m a big fan of yoga pants/workout gear for gym activities (obviously) and then weekending/running errands/going cozy. Nothing beats it!

    Oh my word – how laughable! Of all the things to worry about as an elected official. And you’re right…pencil skirts show just as much on me as yoga pants because there’s really no hiding this bubble butt of mine. Lame!!

    Good lord, this stuff makes me so pissed off. Same with dress codes in high schools. I hate the argument that form-fitting things are “tempting for boys/men.” Eff that – boys and men need to learn to control themselves so that us women can wear whatever the hell we want to! I get so ragey about this stuff!!!

      Right?! SO DO I! It makes me so angry. It is just silly… and it makes me think of all the ideas floating around sexual violence and rape too… the old saying that “don’t dress that way” if you don’t want to get raped. REALLY? I really don’t think the way someone dresses has anything to do with it. It is called education and people learning that it is NOT okay to rape. Anyway BAH! Thanks for your comment Brynn!
