OK, back now? Good! As somebody who spends a great deal of time wearing leggings or bike shorts not because she wants to make a fashion statement, but because it makes me *hurt less*, it shouldn’t take much to figure out that my thoughts on the matter are more in like with that than this.
Here’s the thing: leggings have uniform pressure against my legs, so they aren’t constantly being irritated by loose fabric brushing against them.
That was easy, now wasn’t it?
Or, apparently not, for people who insist on seeing clothing as nothing more than a fashion statement (or some sort of value to pass on to your kids, whatever THAT means). It’s judging me by a completely irrelevant standard. I make my everyday clothing choices based on comfort and not out of a need to violate somebody else’s concept of what does and does not constitute proper pantwear.
Frankly, as long as my clothing covers all the bits necessary to prevent my being arrested for public nudity, is relatively clean, and doesn’t convey any offensive messages, that’s about where it stops in terms of other people getting to judge my clothing as inappropriate.
Sadly, the author of this might have been better off teaching her child the value of not judging people by their clothing choices, but instead seeing beyond that. Even more sad, I’m not expecting that of her.
