A woman named Maryann White wrote a letter to the editor of The Observer expressing her displeasure with what she calls "The Legging Problem." In the letter she writes:

"Leggings are so naked, so form fitting, so exposing. Could you think of the mothers of sons the next time you go shopping and consider choosing jeans instead?"

What? You need to think of people while dressing? I'm putting pants on. Apparently she was attending Sunday Mass at the University of Notre Dame and saw some women in there wearing leggings. Instead of focusing on Mass she stared at women's asses for the next forty minutes and worked herself into a self righteous rage.

Cool, she must be a blast at a cocktail party. Yoga pants, leggings, whatever you call them are one of the great things about Planet Earth. Women who wear them are comfortable and men love because they do show a lot.

Look at that, a man admitted he looks at women, women for the most part know this is happening and we are all still here. Let's lighten up as humans, take a deep breath and stare at each other's butts.

My wife always says, "it's a body, not a big deal. Mine is mine, yours is yours, some are cool, some are not cool. Whatever, let people be people, we were born naked." 

That's a way to look at it that I think most people can appreciate. Meditate on it and calm down. A pair of pants should not make your blood boil and send you rushing to the keyboard. Why? So you can tell other women how to dress (live their life)?


P.S. The letter backfired and women all over social media ate her for breakfast.
