Leggings are evil.

How anyone who’s ever eaten a cheeseburger shouldn’t wear leggings.  

Fat Leggings

Even Conan O’Brien has jumped in on the joke.


As entertaining as those are to anyone with a sense of humor, I’m here to end the debate. Not only are leggings pants, they’re da bomb diggity of them all.  

Here Are 6 Reasons Why Leggings ARE Pants

1) .  Ryan Gosling says so.

And let’s be real. This will be the only opportunity any of us have to sit on his face.

2).  Merriam don’t lie! According to Merriam Webster’s online dictionary a pant is an outer garment covering each leg separately and usually extending from the waist to the ankle–usually used in plural. So basically, as long as your vag isn’t hanging out, you’ve got yourself some pants!


3).  Camel toe isn’t an indication you should stop wearing leggings. It means you should start wearing underpants.

4).  If people of Wal-Mart appear anywhere near your litmus test for fashion, your sense is fatally flawed.  

Really? You’re going to compare this

to this?


Or this


to this?


More than that, these examples are proof you don’t have to be a size 2 to look smokin’ hot in a pair of leggings.

5).  Got a muffin top?

Can’t tell in leggings.

6).  Let’s be honest. If your booty were this tight, you’d be rocking the pants too. All. Day. Long. I know I would.

Leggings are more cool and comfortable than pants.

Leggings are not pants. Pretty simple. Now, this isn't to say you shouldn't wear em if you want, but if you're hanging it all out there don't get snippy if your ass is getting checked out or commented on...and that's not even taking cameltoe into account. If you're showin' it all, it's gonna get looked at.

I wear leggings a LOT. I wore them in the 1990s, wore running tights casually when they were out of fashion, and still wear them now - before *and* after transition. If people don't like leggings, they need to STOP LOOKING.

The only time leggings are an issue is when they're see through. There *are* laws against indecent exposure, though that's another sign of how screwed up most people are. The body is normal and nothing to be ashamed of. We're born naked, though I've heard religious fanatics who say otherwise. Seriously, they do.

Haha! Yeah, that was pretty amusing. But the reality is, I live in the deep South and we like to eat. You won't find many tight buns around here. You'll see more of the Walmart variety of people and let's face it, no one wants to see that much junk in the trunk, other to mention what they're serving up front...know what I mean?

Is this page a joke?Well anyway,my answer to the main topic is as follows If leggings are pants,then why cant men wear them freely?Nobody can explain,because their answer is almost always women centric,but then that proves the sexism in such presumptions.
